Beyond Amazing - Terrain by Cupid's Art

Recently heroscaper Cupid's Art has been attending HeroScape tournaments with pieces of custom terrain in hand, as prizes. These pieces are beyond spectacular.* Funrun has apparently been following him around taking pictures.* She writes:

I heard he laser etched the detailing into these tiles and columns. I hope he clarifies on this because it is pretty cool. I love how he paints HS figures to look like statues.top view

Castle Ruins
This was my personal favorite because it looks so realistic, yet is not so drastically changed as to not be seamlessly integral into the official game pieces. The castle tower would be an interesting perch for flying figures.

Soulborg Refueling Station
Cool idea, I bet it acts as a interesting line of sight and movement blocker, except for those darn rats!

Plane Wreck
The idea that the one wing is separate and can be integrated into your map differently every time is very cool to me. I love the realism of the torn up grass into sand and black charred earth underneath the plane, and a wheel somehow ended up next to a rock.

Below is the Sudema's Tomb prize he brought to the Columbus Tournament on Feb. 24. When he brought it in and set it down, a crowd of about 12 people stood around just marveling at the natural realism and attention to detail. There was a $100 cash prize at this tournament, but the winner choose this piece instead. There is no doubt that this is a true work of art easily worth over $100 in materials, time, skill, and aesthetics! CupidsArt is an amazing artist, and definitely proves he is worthy of his "Resident Artist" title here.

There's even a dead human near his mouth! The dim orange light inside the tomb turns on and off and has 3 on modes: steady on, fast blinking, and slow pulse.

It's as if some giant dog-like creature just died on a hillside trying to get into a cave hole that was just too small.

Thanks for the eye candy CA!

Wow. These are SUPER impressive!!!!!!!! I especially like the cave and tower.
The Soulborg Recharging Station is a very interesting idea (I assume it has the ability to heal Soulborgs). I wonder if you could maybe do something like that for other figures, like a medical tent, or healing warlock spot, or sacred enchanted water or something.
