Loving the new terrain sprue's detailing, the fence/walkway squares are super adaptable. If only it came with free time to experiment...

Insaniak, what do you use for your bases on these terrain features? Cardboard/poster board?

Some of the earlier pieces used Foamboard, but it's not ideal as it warps easily, so these days I use foamed PVC or hardboard. Mostly the latter.

I really love your terrain sprues and all the inspiring projects you have made with them. Are we allowed to post our own stuff in this thread? I recently made a garage out of a cardboard box, some mesh, some plastic strips and some of your bits. It was really fun and easy to build.
