WIP: Polymer clay dungeon tile

I’ve got the details I want on the floor and one wall. One more wall to go. 28 mm figure for scale to show how well it works with 1.25″ squares and one-inch walls. Also decided to forego grid on the floor space since the tile itself acts as a 2×2 grid. It should still be easy enough to suss out range and movement.

Here’s the cave entrance terrain piece with most of another layer of plaster and paper towel strips. Unfortunately, I ran out of plaster. I’m looking forward to getting more soon so I can pick back up on this project. So far it’s been fun. Oh, I did learn one valuable thing so far. Don’t use 1/8″ craft plywood for the base.

If he’s going to find answers, he’ll find them there.

First, I started with a craft plywood board measuring about 12″ x 24″, some Titebond glue, and some strips of cardboard cut from a cereal box.

Omphaloskeptigram: The Burning North – What’s going on in Nyarlathalas anyway?

Tonight’s mission: learn a bit about storyboarding. It sounds like something I would benefit from tremendously. There’s pretty much nothing about the storytelling craft I don’t need to learn, actually. Writing as a nonstop vomit of words I’ve got down pat, barring the errant comma and serious style problems. But telling a story?
