With some supplies from The Model Tree Shop and Scotia Grendel I have almost finished a few more terrain boards for my new games room. Hopefully the castle will form the setting for a siege game with a difference at BOYL this year whilst the Isle of Skye boards make a nice display for my game at Salute.

Do these all fit together? Lovely stuff. I have a fair few old Exxen Castillos that I have wondered about retrieving from my mother's basement and using on gaming tables. (Unaltered. Just . .. build a new castle when you need a different one.)

The mountains and dwarf hold will sit back to back for a mountain fortress. The sloped sides of all the boards are the same and the flat sides are... flat, so yes, all fit together in a fair few combinations.

Truly excellent stuff. Once long long ago I started a similar project. Built two or three long narrow boards with some hills and flat sides. No idea what ever happened to them. Long lost and most probably destroyed. You make me think I need to try again. :)

Excellent work! I especially like the Dwarven Castle - I might even try and built something similar some time :)

Once I've finished painting the drawbridge/gatehouse that sits between them I shall oblige.

A tree board to join the swamp and rocks.

The side matches up to the raised edge of the rocks and castle boards, the back can sit at 90 degrees to the same edge and all the other areas are flat to match up to the swamp boards.
