New personal underdark environment... 6 Years, 5 Months ago  
Hello all,

I 've started to work a few month ago on a new way to have lac & river for underdark environment.
One of my goal was to create pieces that can be used both for rivers and for borders of a lake.
As i have a dedicated room used for roleplaying the idea to have a big piece of waters that i can cover with those new piece was a good idea.
I 've made some models and duplicated them as i wanna be able to create really big tables.
So here is the result...What do you think of it ?

Looks great! It's nice to have a dedicated area in the house to experiment with and not have to worry about taking everything down so the family can eat dinner. So what are they made out of? How big is each piece?

I have made the pieces to have the same size that the original DF cavern. I have made 4 different corners and 5 different straight borders
Here is a photo with some of them and an original DF piece to compare size....

Very nice work !!

Welcome and thanks for sharing ...

What did you use for the water? I like to see the large expanses of water without seeing individual tile edges.

The lake of individual tile edges is one of the mail reason why i decided to made it !
The water is a big plastic plate i bough and cut (the kind you use to make shower cubicle)

Great idea !! I thought it might have been an acrylic lens for a fluorescent light or something. Nicely done.

Did you paint the back side or just lay it over colored paper so you can change color effects ? I've been thinking of doing something to give me that flexibility ... like using green-brown for stagnant swamp water to orange-red for molten lava, etc.

The back has been an important question....I have taken the option to have something under the plastic plate and eventually to change it as you said.
Currently i have searched and found a nice cloth (with the correct color, an invisible texture...) to represent a lake of the underdark.
One of the next idea will be lava lake.

LOL,,, yeah it does Rock the Free World indeed! You can change colors make winding rivers within the caverns. Any plans on molding these individual pieces you have? Also I be you could do something like this for the dungeon also " like a coping ".

Hello, yes in fact i first created a mold of an original DF piece (to have the details of the ground), then i change it (dremel) to create the pieces you have seen (9 differents one)...and then created new molds of those pieces to duplicate them (actually i 'm able to make very big tables :- ).
