Not DF, buy hey i was bored over the weekend... 8 Years, 1 Month ago  
I have been wanting some better terrain to do "outside" stuff in, i have made some of the classic Pink/Blue Foam terrain but it just never quit fit what i wanted, and running d20 it was a Big pain in the butt to grid. And yes while you can just run things with a tape measure for the most part there are some odities that occur if you abandon the grid, with spell placements and it mucks up combat, so i have wanted a grid system of outdoor terrain for a while.

What I have been using is a makeshift system of a series of 1 incg gridded graph paper with Plants, rocks and the like scattered around on it to look like out side, but it just looks off. After having major battle in the outdoors last week in both games i wanted something a bit "cooler" for terrain, and with a long weekend i had some time to do it.

Now what they heck does this have to do with DF, at first not much becuase i was going to everything, make a River section and road sections intill i realized just how much freakin easier it would be to use DF Cavernous river tiles as er outside rivers (yes there will be some odd bits sticking up, but for the most part it can just be a rocky shore ;) ) and it makes my life easier. Roads and paths can be constructed with Floor sections for paved roads.

I can't wait to bring these to game, just want to make 4-6 more and have a decent setup and options.

To vary the terrain, when i am GM'ing i plan on still adding in the loose trees to give a more layer tired effect in the canopy and to break things up a bit, but so far i am happy with what i have, i just want more.

Also I plan on doing a completly "alien" terrain, kind of like Fleucia from SW, for SW or other type setting. Some of those reddish plants i think would work well for that, they have a semi un-earthly quality in large numbers.

Nope not the New Cylons from Sci-Fi's BSG, they are Super Battle droids from the newer SW movies.

The stuff wasn't to bad to make, I wanted to do 12x12, but ended up 10x10 becuase of the size of the Foam core, which is just as well the 10x10 almost don't fit in the box i am using to dust the flock on with....
