I lot of the stuff I used was paper terrain from Worldworks Games.
The major encounter I was planning for was on a unexplored world with an ancient temple complex built by the Eldar before their fall. Scattered ruins around a central tower surrounded by a thick forest.
|Eldar foam-core symbol|
|Split in half|
A quick rough coat of paint, they looked like crap but they are ruins.
|Misc Eldar shapes|
|Foam spheres and cone cut to shape|
|Foam test fit|
|The top of the cone needed to be|
concave to accept the foam semi sphere
The temple of far seeing was meant to be a mighty tower looming above the forest floor.
The body was constructed out of foam block from a craft store a few seconds with a saw reshaped them as required. Some wood glue fixed the major pieces in place.
|All the small foam semi |
spheres glued in place
|Small foam spheres cut in half and|
sanded to fit the side of the cone
To get the correct shape on the stairs I used the cone as a sanding block.
I will post a few picks of the tower in use during game night.
I only have a few more cool encounters using this 3D terrain but I may plan more. I was surprised how much work GMing can be even when using campaign book a.
