Well, here I go!

This is my first attempt at making my own pieces for my miniatures. These water tiles are NOT fancy hand-sculpted molds that have several layers of gloss paint applied to them. They are sweet and simple (just pieces of foamcore with a shiny blue fabric glued to them). Most importantly, however, they are MODULAR! With just the few pieces I've made, I can create a near limitless number of layouts.

The modularness (is that a word?) of the Dwarven Forge sets is one of the things I love most. It's one of the reasons we are TOTALLY getting our money's worth when we pick up a set.

So, without further adieu, below are pictures of my first Water Temple, followed by a picture of my complete Water Tile Set.

Have Fun!

Hmmm... it would be nice if I actually posted the picture of the Water Tiles like I said I would!

Try again!

If you are already using Foamcore, you could pretty easily make a step up to a more DF stlye Water element.

take the Foamcore as a base, put a rigid frame around the edges and get some envirotex or Clear Resin and make something similar to the water bits... I did something similar with lava, and it works well. It's a good way to make custom bits DF doesn't make.
