A tour of my gaming rooms with Forest-Town-City 2 Years, 7 Months ago  
Tom was curious as to the different rooms in which I game. Here's a video that walks you through my basement - including a large forest-town diorama with DF cave and my city with DF floors.

Sorn, simply stunning, your forest setup is amazing. As is your whole collection which im sure would fill my house.
Glad you find the 20L boxes useful as much as i do. I also love all your 40k models especially all your titans.

Fantastic, Superb, Inspiring... as always!

Unlike one of your earlier thread, you are now displaying a huge forest where all your trees seem different, just like a natural forest. Would you care to elaborate from where you got all those different trees?

I know it has been mentioned before, but could we get a link to where those boxes are available?

It is really nice to be among others who share the same passion for gaming and diorama building. I feel like you are all kindred souls!

Thanks for the kind words, Tom. The thing I enjoy most about all of the dioramas I see on this website (including, of course, yours) is that they really stoke our imaginations in a way that non-diorama RPG gaming lacks. What we arguably lose in flexibility, we more than make up for in having a visual feast that turns any boring encounter into an exciting event set in a realistic miniature world of the type I could only dream about as a teenager. I have to thank Stefan for taking the first steps in this direction so long ago.

As a final note, dioramas do not replace the story-telling flavor text and whatnot of traditional RPGs. They simply enhance them, IMHO.

Thanks, Pusherman for the tip on the Really Useful Boxes. They allowed me to move my DF boxes into my storage room and opened up space in my city room for more DF/other terrain/models, etc.

The trees are from various different sources-

Most are from Woodland Scenics
Some are special trees I got from E-bay (i.e., handmade)
Some are from JTT
A few are from SceneMaster

Sorn,

Awesome to behold! I now have a goal.....it is not unlike photo's I have seen of model railroad builders basements when I was young....I used to look at such basement setups in awe, and dream.......you have acheived the dream!
Love the Giant Arena (I have one too)

But, perhaps now you must dress up your rooms and passages (the real ones)in a medieval theme such as those seen on Tom's link...once acheived you would truly become the Overlord of Gaming dens.....

I have something coming for Christmas that will fit nicely underneath your city......

Stefan,

Thanks for the compliments. Alas, I feel fortunate enough that my wife allows me to monopolize most of the basement with my stuff. Attempting to redecorate the walls to be more gamer appropriate is unlikely to fly with my wife. And...as you know, happy wife, happy life!.

Many of you are fortunate enough to have a wife/gf that understands and perhaps even enjoys our hobby. On the other hand, some of you, I suspect, have wives like mine - they do not understand the hobby and merely tolerate it. With the former type of wife, I could transform my basement into an insane gamer-friendly tavern/dungeon setup perhaps approaching Monkplayer's awesome setup or that of the other amazing game rooms in Tom's "Gaming Room" thread. However, with the latter type of wife, I consider myself fortunate to have what I have.

Stefan's teaser about a new set that would be appropriate for underneath my city coming out this year is very, very exciting. Since this is the very first time I hear about this (I do not recall Stefan ever dropping such a hint before, though I may be wrong), I will take the rare opportunity here to be the very first DF forum fan to hazard a guess as to what the new set will be:

Either-
(1) a new wicked additions set that has sewer-type terrain OR
(2) an entirely new limited edition sewers set

If I were a betting man, my money would be on the first of the two I note above.

Irrespective of which, I will buy 6 sets, both because I am an addict and because I like supporting DF.

Great video Sorn and the forest is superb. I managed to make it to the USA but not DC so will have to remain content with your video for now.

Sounds like we will be seeing sewers and a door set. Yippee!!!
