Small Builds

Post by blakoutsun » Thu Jun 13, 2019 6:46 am

I think we should have a thread where people post small builds instead of big builds.

I think a reasonable limit to build size would be 36 or fewer pieces (based on 2x2 floors, that should be one square foot of build space). I think showcasing smaller builds would help peasants like me that only have small DF collections.

I will throw something together this afternoon and submit my own small build to help get things started.

Think about the story you want to build. Add accessories like the Dollar tree grotesque. I left the front open so that the players can see.

Building up is definitely acceptable. I love elevation in builds.

Great looking build Oldent! I love the gargoyles and I think having the front open makes the whole thing feel much larger.

Thanks

I plain to use the magma falls with the mountain elevations to create something similar.

Here is my attempt at a small build. The dungeon is an abandoned library of a long-dead wizard. Rumor has it that some of his more potent magical spells might be documented in tomes in his library. The adventurers brave enough to delve into the library will be met with guardians, traps, and a puzzle they must solve if they want to come home with the loot.

Will you be creating a lava lake similar to the one in your photo? I think the lavafall will look great in that setup.

I like the way you used the pit traps and trapdoors. I like the spiral stair case. I have been trying to print one for a path finder scenario but have had marginal results.

Image

I did not have enough DF doors so I improvised.The spiral stair needs to fit in the same space as the narrow passage.

The 6.66 falls looks like it is 4 by 4. There looks like there is a lake that may be larger. I will work something out.
I have one mountain and lots of accessories. I will evaluate if I need more mountain elevations when I play with the new caverns.

I have 24 of the DOD elevations. I like to use them with the large columns.
