Some of these could work for exotic Fantasy/Off-world flooring and even for reptilian or insectoid Alien walls:

Many MORE designs here:

Plus you can submit to them YOUR OWN unique designs too!

QUESTIONS:
1) Anyone tried these wooden ones yet?
2) Which materials (foam, DAS clay, epoxy putties, etc) produced the best texture with those rollers?
3) Got any pictures of your finished pieces?

Thanks

I wonder if you could get hexes made, and roll them out on thin clay to make tetrain pieces.

@Xintao
Yep. I have most of those from Green Stuff World (in Spain). These wooden ones, however, might include patterns that aren't offered at GSW or other wargame suppliers, but which might be useful to those looking for additional and more exotic styles.

Dan,

Good find. It looks like the pine tree bark would work for cobble stones or dungeon flooring and the mud cracks would work for Mars terrain. What do you think?

Indeed! And I can definitely see the Pine Bark making some awesome cracked earth effects too.

And I see even more pattern options in the 4" rolls than I did in the 6" ones:

But what I like most, and that no one else I know of has offered, is the option to have YOUR OWN DESIGN made into an embossing roller:

Reminds me a bit, though MUCH larger, of some stuff I tried with cylindrical beads.

Order a couple and posted a pic of the brick and pine bark 4" rollers next to common minis. TMP link
