As soon as the Gothic Horror campaign started moving, I took stock of the models and terrain that I had prepared for our games. I had more or less completed everything I had set out to do for phase one of the project, but this week past, I realized that I had almost completely forgotten about one important terrain element- crypts!
I've made two experimental pieces for now. My method was ridiculously simple. First, I marked out the pattern of the hallways/rooms with tape. Then, I painted the "void" area with black paint. That's pretty much it.
Here are two tiles laid together. As you can see, I'll be making sure that the designs match up on the edges. I'll also paint about half of the other sides completely black to use as "filler" tiles when the rooms and hallways aren't all encompassing.
This is the Heroquest furniture I wrote about some time ago. I'm going to prime and paint the plastic components and then reassemble them. They should stand in nicely as cover and as scenario objectives. I can just see it now; Prof. Alcock and Ms. Poundwood searching for clues in an underground library.
Anyway, I'm sure it will look more impressive when spread out over the table with suitable amounts of rubble and furniture sprinkled to taste.
