It's not too hard to put together. I mounted it on a grass 7-hex cardstock base, and can slip a magnet inside to hold it in place. The "open door" is my own addition, but as there is no way to use the interior (the roof is glued on) it's just there for show. (And to get a magnet inside.) The octagonal hut just about fits on the base, a few corners stick out a bit but I don't think placement will be an issue.



I think it looks pretty good. There's no usable rooftop so it's just a big LOS and set decoration. It could be converted to have a removable roof, I suppose?

The set also comes with a "ruined hut." I first tried something different with the layout, turning the octagon into a square:



As you can see from the top down view, it has 3 usable hexes on the inside, and 3 mostly-usable hexes on the outside. Finn is squeezing onto one of the exterior hexes here.



It's OK but the half-hexes bother me. But what if we put the ruined wall on the outside edge, like a battlement?

I did some resizing / kit bashing on the model, and here's the result:



Each wall covers 7 sides, and there's a 2 hex entry on two sides.





I've written the height of each section on the interior wall -- in my next version I will print them on the inside base floor. There are hash marks on the outside for height but they are too hard to see.

I like how it came out. Fortunately all the black sharpie used to cover up the white paper looks like char marks. The "bent door" is a little odd but hey, it's a ruin, right?

The design is flexible: it could be used to cover different configurations of sides. (I was originally planning on covering 16 of the 18 sides, but decided I need two 2-hex entries. Easy enough: tear off a side! Use more sharpie!) If folks are interested I can share the files and write up proper directions.
The hut looks great, thanks for the link, that one is new to me. Did you create the hex base for it? The ruins looks really nice as well.

The hex base is taken here from the Fat Dragon Hex Master set, so I can't share it. However the one for the ruins I made from scratch, and I'll include it with the Ruins files.

Oh, I have that file already I never did build that stuff. It would be pretty easy to make a new one that could be shared though.

I'll share the new one as part of the file once I finish it. In the meantime, here's a picture I took in the park today. Once I resize it, it would be a cool "asphalt" base!

Spoiler Alert!

OK I have uploaded the file here. My first time putting up a file here so hopefully I've done it right. Let me know if you have questions about the construction.

Re: IshMEL's foray into custom terrain

I found this when I was unpacking and realized I had forgotten to post it up here!



I found this template for creating boxes of in any size of a regular prism and thought I would try making some paper terrain with it. The settings I used were 6 sides (obvs), 1.75 inch diameter, 2.25 inch height.

I then took the template, threw it into Photoshop, and added some "sci-fi" texture for the sides and the top. I also put on a "6" on the side so you can tell how tall it is. Sorry, I can't remember what font I used.



The neat thing about this design is that, once you make all the valley and mountain folds, those tabs at the bottom fold in to reinforce the sides. (This is actually the "lid" if you made this as a gift box.) You have one side to glue, and then the top, and then your trusty sharpie to make it all look nice. Black goes with everything.



Here it is on some hexes. It fits well and as you can see is sturdy enough to hold up a Deathwalker. If there's interest I can make a 3-Height version as well. It wouldn't be too hard to change up the "skin" for a different look (castle? brick? rock? hmmm...)



The template can be downloaded here https://www.heroscapers.com/communit...o=file&id=4773

Enjoy!
