I have a few armour cast resin Houses and Cathedral. They are quite expensive, but nice.
Cool! anyone else!! (thanks on the sig thing gator!)
Nice comprehensive listing. Here's a couple more that we all surely know:
Dungeon Downloads (http://www.dungeondownloads.com/DungeonDownloads/main.htm) - beautiful dungeon pdfs - imagine interlock this and cyberdragon's tombs together!
Dwarven Forge (http://jefcon.com/df/pages/) - pricey, but state of the art!
MicroTactix (http://microtactix.com/) - very nice images, especially for comic-based scenarios!
FX Force (http://www.fxforce.com/MAPS.html) - online gaming, but the maps can be manipulated for clix!
Working Stiff Tiles (http://www.aginsinn.com/tilesRon.html) - a whole system for building elegant maps
That's my contribution. Anyone else got more??
Only to say that the dwarven forge is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO worth it for D&D.
The scale is 1 inch squares so it has no use for clixy things, but nothing beats playing D&D on the forge.
Unless you are willing to go to the trouble to build dwarven forge shaped pieces out of plaster with the Hirst Arts molds (available at hirstarts.com)
All depends on what you have more of-time or money...
Which one has the best? I saw the one wizkids had at their booth at wizard world la and it was amazing! it was a peir scene with a boat. The dock and building were elevated about 1 inch off the water.
I saw that pier at WW Philly last year. It was ... okay. Great textures on the wooden docks, some VERY nice detail (the tires against the docks just looked great). A lot of open area, but little originality in the areas where confrontation would take place. It was just a bit ... boring. I was much more impressed with the diorama for their Crimson Skies set with the clear plastic grid set up above ground level for in-sky fighting. See that on the Heroclix board would've induced place with MUCH more soaring, an element sadly lacking in most games.
Attention to detail and original elements are what get my blood rushing when I see a map or 3D board. I made some buildings over a year ago - Gotham City (http://noplab.com/heroclix1.htm ) - but NEVER found a combination of new areas of confrontation and excitement that warranted the work involved. I'm working on maps now, including one with a polar grid. It's coming along VERY slowly, because I'm not the artist that some of these guys are. Dangit!
hey i don't know if anyone else on this thread went to wizard world in LA but they had a kick ### 3D map of a dock and what not. did anyone get a picture of it, if so could ya post it?
or just wait till this summer, their coming out with a star wars minitures game, wonder what maps and 3d sets will looking like?
Fantastic work on your Gotham City maps! I have been cruising around this forum for a while looking at others custom 3D maps and have been impressed by most. I myself am in the process of trying to create my website so that I can list all my images.....unfortunately I don't know much about websites and want it to look good right off the bat.......so delay's are being compounded.:disappoin
I too work with foam core to build my buildings and/or objects, as I noticed you did through your website. I noticed several other people prefer to use cardboard or chip board, but for some odd reason I still prefer foam.....it seems sturdier?:confused:
Once I get my stuff up I will reply in this forum for all to see. I am currently working on a series of buildings that are interchangeable to each other so that you could set up an entire indoor map differently every time you play ( they are 12"x12" square so effectively 9 buildings to create a 36"x36" map). I will include one of the latest pics to let you see my style of 3D maps.
spidey8, very cool 3D room. I personaly love the WK 3D dock bored. This year they added a building to it and a shed I think. They also had a chemical Factory to play on as well. Very cool. It has inspired my friends and I to start the 3D bored fund at our venue and I just purchased 2 24"x96"
five ply boards and 2 boxes of gold nugget sandstone tiles
to begin creating a new 3D arena. I'll be sure to have picks up in July. The links you guys have posted are awesome
and I can't wait to take advantage of some them.
spidey that is an awesome room. i'd play heroclix 5 times more often if they had sets like that.
Thanks for the praise NMH! I unfortunately only get the chance to play about once a month or month and a half, due to all my buddies and my schedules. Still working on getting a website up so that all my work can be viewed..............right back into that scheduling thing:disappoin
Great buildings if you want to spend the $$$...
