After I posted this topic: TMP link I raided my copy of Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu for a shoggoth mini and some cultists (by the way, the bad guy minis in that game are great for 15mm and the game is awesome as well) and came up with what I think is a pretty fun game. The problem is that I want to use tiles for the maps, and the only ones I have are from Star Wars: Imperial Assault. I want more of a spooky castle theme, so I was wondering if anyone knew of any cool printable dungeon tiles for D&D or similar games.

Wargame Vault and DriveThruRPG have lots of printable terrain and dungeon tiles, you can have a look here to start and then adjust the filters to get closer to what you're looking for. link

I am going to narrow the scope, a bit, to just dungeon tiles for you: examples of Fat Dragon Games Dungeon Tiles on my blog (scroll down to, "#4 – Basing Copper Dragon Dungeon Floor Tiles"). Here is a link to an image showing a larger setup using the tiles, mounted on vinyl floor tiles: link.

Fat Dragon Games is currently running a 50% off sale on all terrain products. They also make print-and-play full, 3D, if interested. Loads more fiddly, much more time consuming to build, as well. Here is a more direct link to FDG's printable terrain: 2D Dungeon products; and, full 3D Dungeons. Cheers!

Sgt, you may have found a very nice home for a poor orphaned shoggoth. You're doing Cthulhu's work!

May I ask what exactly is in the Copper Dragon basic dungeons 1 set? I don't need too much, just rooms and corridors and maybe some furniture. I assume furniture is a different set though?

I have done this—used printable PDF files of outdoor terrain boards and mounted on cheap peel-and-stick floor tiles. It is a little bit of a pain, but not overly so. I had the PDF tiles printed at Office Max, which was easy and not very expensive, but you have to be careful to be very specific at the scale you want printed so they will all match and be a perfect 1" square or whatever.

Pages 2-3, of the Quick Preview, show all of the tiles which are included in the Copper Basic Set. Furniture is not included. If you want 2D furniture, you may need to look at other company's sets.

YogiBearMinis is correct, that the peel-n-stick vinyl tiles are a bit more work. The FDG sets are made to be expandable, by putting pieces together, to make larger areas. The vinyl floor tiles will make them !much! heavier, as well, but it makes them more durable, and useful, overall. I strongly recommend covering them with Clear Contact Paper, which will prevent stains, and damage; it will also allow you to write on them, with water-based pens (do NOT use dry-erase pens on Clear Contact Paper…). The best wet-erase pens are the children's Crayola Markers: I have left them on my mats for weeks, and they came off, without any ghost-traces left behind! Vis-a-Vis pens will leave ghost traces, after an hour… Red is especially bad, but so is green.

I highly recommend Copper DRAGON Basic Dungeons 1 & 2, as well as Caverns 1 & 2. The others are more specialized. Take a careful look at the preview's small images of its tiles, to see if they will meet your needs.

If 2D furniture is desired, here is a link for the search results of , on DriveThruRPG.com. The first page results are the most useful. Cheers!
