I am gearing up for running a Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago game at Cold Wars 2018. This will be a big multi-player game. The problem is, I do not have any Jungle Terrain, so I will be starting from scratch.

First up is Jungle Huts.


My hut base, very simple.


My most awesome Proxxon Foam Cutter.


Fits like a glove


Cheap Walmart towel for Thatch roof.


Add a hot glue gun and boom 7 huts done.

More pics and details on what I did on my blog:

Next up, painting.

That's a pretty clever way to make a roof.

Very nice.

Pretty cool stuff. Is the towel on something? Or will glue/paint harden it up so it holds its shape?

Very clever- looks great.

Wish I had the space for that equipment. Nice work.
