Following on from my previous post about building/cobbling together a version of Warhammer Quest. In this post I tackle building the board sections used to create the game’s dungeon.
The idea I had in my head was to create some board sections that would be fun to play on and hopefully be quite durable. These are some of the attributes I wanted my boards to achieve.
- Durability – be a bit more than just a piece of printed paper/thin card.
- Have some weight to them so they don’t move around too easily on the table top like printed paper and card would do.
- Interlock, so as the dungeon builds up an accidental nudge doesn’t create an earthquake of dungeon collapsing proportions.
- Be interesting to look at, I want there to be nice little details on the boards in a similar manner to the original artwork for the boards.
- Be playable, not much point in making these if they are awful to play on.
- Painted up to a good standard.
Well that’s only a small wish list, right?
I have to admit I didn’t really give much thought to alternative materials or methods and I just ploughed straight in to using what I thought would be best with no experimenting/research. Perfect recipe for disaster, don’t you think? Well lets see…Read ON for more of this adventure
