Last night at the club we continued our D&D campaign
I have been working for the last month or so on a large round keep that will fit in with my Terra-Former terrain tiles.
The keep is made from 3D printed components from Printable Scenery Rampage Dungeon and Rampage Castle range.. These are all interchangable pieces that clip together, so the plan is to develop the tower into at least a four story tower.
For now it is a ruin, with just the ground floor and cellar level intact and a ruined first story.
The game board that we played on consisted of six of the Sally 4th Terra-Former tiles, two road tiles, two stream tiles, two plain tiles. One of the plain tiles has been modified, to hold the basement of the tower. Each tiles is 12" square and 2" high with rare earth magnets in each side to hold the boards closely togethe, align them and stop 'in game drift'. Terra-Formers are supplied in kit form. They are easily glued together, filled with polystyrene and then painted, textured or flocked. Click here for further details.
Two guards armed with crossbows were stationed as lookouts on the ruined first floor level. They spotted Bill, the half orc babarian as he charged across the open killing field towards the door.
The ground floor of the tower contained an entrance hall with two ruffians on guard, the evil cleric Malzhars study and bedroom together with the keeps kitchen. A spiral staircase led down to the cellar and up to the ruined first floor.
Malzar does not like to be disturbed when he is working. Luckily for the party he left his minions to deal with the minor irritation of visitors.
Another ruffian keeps an eye on the hog roast.
In the entrance hall, two ruffians stand guard. Malzar does not like to be disturbed. Bill the barbarian charged the door, broke through surprising the guards. Eventually he was overwhelmed and died from his wounds. Luckily the cleric reached him in time to 'spare the dying' and it looks like Bill will live another day.
Malzar has lots of books in his study and a ruffian to do his bidding.
Under the tower are some cellars. This is a Terra-Former plain tile that has had some Rampage walls set into the polystyrene. Terra-Formers are 2" high and so are the Rampage Walls. The base of the Terra-Former tile is 3mm thick so it was an easy modification to take 3mm off the bottom of the wall and floor tiles before printing them out so the finished size was compatable.
Only the outer walls were glued in place. The floor tiles and interior walls are removable so that different room layouts can be made.
A secret door leads from the tower's cellars to a small dungeon.
The dungeon area contains a store room, living accomodation for some Gnolls in Malzards service and a couple of prison cells, currently occupied by the merchants from the caravan that the Gnolls had recently hijacked.
The tower and dungeon tiles have been painted by spray priming with Army Painter Black Spray, before havily drybrushing with Storm Grey matt household emulsion. Individual flags and stones were then painted using Sandtex Mid Stone. When dry everything was drybrushed with Sandtex Ash Green before a liberal coating of Army Painter Quick Tone was brushed on followed by a final spray with Army Painter Matt Varnish.
Miniatures have been rebased onto Sally 4th Clear Bases.
