Completed the latest round of glass work this weekend and allowed the hobby to take over one of my shop tables for a couple days. Now this idea had been bouncing around my head for a while: 3D dungeon tiles using faux-stone vinyl tiles. Seemed like a fast and simple way to get a sturdy, stone floor. Add a hunk of 1″ insulation foam, some cheap craft paint, a couple paint pens, lots of elbow grease scoring the stone work, and glue.

The result is three 12″x 12″ rooms, six 6″ x 12″ corridors, and eight 6″ x 6″ rooms.

I know there's lots of detailing yet to be done. I'm going to scour my bits box and the internet for details and banners, and I suspect I'll want to pick up a couple sets of 28mm scenics and furniture, but I think this is a good start. So far, the project cost less than $50. USD

More pictures coming as I progress. I'm looking forward to our next dungeon crawl even more now.

Have a great day.

Looking good. Were the tiles already gridded or did you add that yourself?

Thanks. The grids were done with paint pens.

Great looking place to adventure!

Excellent--and it sounds like it went together pretty quickly!

Yes, it came together fast. It was mostly complete in my mind anyway, and I simply went into production mode.

Great idea!

Great looking set. Not sure why folks don't use vinyl floor tileing in their terrain projects more often. I'm new to this hobby, but as you know, I've used it for everything from 15mm roads to ocean tiles to river sections. Much easier than cutting up MDF bases, in my experience, and can come with useful patterns/textures.

Looking forward to seeing you pimp out your dungeon!
