Feathery greetings from my chicken coop ("Huhn" is german for "chicken")!
I recently found DMG's tutorials for cardboard dungeon tiles and it looked absolutely foolproof (or rather chickenproof) to make, so I gave it a try. At the moment I just have a bunch of unpainted or partly spraypainted floor tiles. I will start painting them when I have made enough to just have a bigger paint session. I am a bit worried about that part. The techniques seem to be the same as (or very similar to those) in miniature painting and I really, really sucked at this when I tried it once (I am clearly not patient enough for stuff like that). On the other hand floor tiles may be much more forgiving when it comes to a steady hand and exact details. Or at least I hope so.
I want to make tiles with grid because the plan is to eventually use them for Dungeon Crawl Classics and/or D&D5 sessions. For a starter I just follow DMG's instructions for a basic tiles set (with the alternate size for grid). Stuff to put onto the floor tiles is dreams of the future at the moment. I think, we will just use the furniture from Hero Quest in the beginning.
I already had a lot of fun slicing my new dining table into pieces. I do now own a cutting board to prevent further damage to my furniture and will go on motivated whenever I find the time.
About this forum I liked how beginners and advanced crafters are equally welcome and seem to get positive/constructive critisism based on their level of knowledge and skill. That's why I am here. I hope to contribute something at last. For now I will lurk in the dark and just read silently.
See you around!
