Jungle Terrain Test Piece
Overall I'm really pleased.
I'm also thinking about touching up some of the palm trees (painting the coconuts, etc).
The bamboo sections also came out nice. When attaching the plant pieces there's a balance one needs to find between creating a dense "jungle" and playability in terms of being able to move figures through the section. I'll only know if I got it right after a few games so lets hope there isn't a lot of touch up work to do!
I do want to redo the oasis sections as they are very rough. I made them two days before the con and they show it.
I've got a jungle floor terrain cloth from Cigar-Box Battle Mats and just need to figure out how to soften the transition between the deserts and jungle, especially where the one mountain range veers off in an angle.
There are rumors that some dinosaurs may be found roaming around the jungle section - these are just rumors at the moment. If proven true, perhaps the inclusion of historically accurate dinosaurs in the game will appease the purists who scoff at anything not historical. I take their concerns about the corruption of the hobby from silly and fun games very seriously - yes, very seriously, indeed.
