Ok so last week I made forests/trees, and this week I made mountains. Also I found a better image hosting service I think.

So for those that don't know I game a lot on the go, and its challenging for me to transport bulky terrain. For years I have had flat roads, rivers, and game mats, but I have always wanted the bigger and more delicate terrain such as Mountains and trees too.

So I made this stuff:

They have all been colored with marker/dry brushing because I dont want the color to chip off during transport.

They are raised, but flat so that it is easy to place models on them. I also treat them as tall as they are across. So 4", 6", 8", and 10" depending on the tile. That is if I am playing a game where that matters.

The minis are just on the table to show scale.

I hope to have tree lines made next week since I am having such a blast making these. Let me know what you guys think.

Lastly blame America the Beautiful for the mountains colors.

I like them, good idea and execution. Are they made of stained glass?

Nope not stained glass, just vacuum formed HIPS plastic. I 3D printed the master molds, and can make as many copies of them as I want using my vacuum former.
