Hello,

Long post...

Well this is a fun little projects.  The Runewars terrain markers just had to be replaced with 3D terrain. The challenge is of course to replicate the design and still keep it playable.

The Stone Terrace:

Made from Hirst Arts moulds (love that stuff!)

with 6 troops

The Forest (GW trees):

Rocky Outcrop and Spikes:

Crumbing Wall (more Hirst Arts) :

with 2 Troops

The Swamp:

Stronghold (Hirst Arts. Made a slight redesign since I didn't like that the Stronghold card was asymmetric, you are fortified from all angles. )

With 2 Troops

Temple Ruins (Hirst Arts and an old Target Games altar, some stone slabs made from Green Stuff Worlds rolling pin)

Best regards

Thanks for the nice comments! ?

The cobblestones is common clay mangled with a textured rolling pin from Green Stuff World. Sort of planning making a road system out of that stuff. 

I noticed that the spiral stairs in the Stronghold didn't show that well... so lets add a picture from above:

Hello!

Time for a slight update since I just finished some additional pieces. Theres still the challenge to replicate the card art and still make the terrain functional.

Latari Memorial (aluminium foil on a stick with some clay on top)

Dimoran Fissure (aluminium foil and clay)

Closeup of the Glade. You can spot some GW creatures and some mushrooms made from plastic pearls.

Units actually balance on the mushrooms.

Wildroot Patch (A slight challenge to make "Cover" and "Elevated" tree base and allso store 4 troop bases. Made from a plastic decoration twig found a a garden store... and loads of hot melt glue)

Thank you all for kind comments.  ?

I think 3D terrain helps out the game board quite a lot. They are rather fun small terrain challenges.

The moulds are from Hirst Arts, http://www.hirstarts.com

The are all represented on the  fieldstone line http://www.hirstarts.com/molds/moldsfield.html

Fieldstone Basic Block Mold #701

(Basic wall blocks)

Fieldstone Accessories Mold #71

(Steps and arch sections)

4" Round Fieldstone Mold #72

(Used for the spiral stair and the sacred font)

Ruined Fieldstone Mold #75

(for making ruins)

Cavern Floor Mold #281

(for the stone terrace)

You can really do quite a lot of fun projects with these moulds. I posted my DnD dungeon on the Hirst Arts forum

https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hirstarts/gnuttens-dungeon-fieldstone-modular-etc-etc-t8527.html#p84341

For Runewars terrain its the Smoldering Forest, Pillaged Cart and Bone Totem next in line. The might be done rather soon, must just finish a small project before that. Unfortunately the Raiders Tent and Desecrated Chapel (from Kethra A'laak Hero Expansion) is really hard to something good from. The problem there is that its absolutely no way go get something where the 4 base troop can fit within that terrain base. They will be complete buildings and you remove the troop from the board when you enter. Looking at the new box sizes I assume that this will be the norm for the upcoming commanders terrain pieces.
