The Labyrinth & The Ruins

I finally managed to complete the labyrinth a month or two ago and I’ve just realised that I didn’t share any pictures of it. The idea, as you’ll remember, was heavily influenced by the wonderful Yggdrasillium board that came to fame a year or two ago. It’s taken me that long to put together first the shore line, then buy enough Zone Mortalis boards to finish it off. That said, it’ll be an ongoing project. You can never have enough Zone Mortalis.






In addition to the underground labyrinth, I also started putting together a smaller board to represent the surface of Seccundus. It took me a while to work out what to use as a basing material for these pieces. Then I hit upon Foamex. Foamex is used to create graphic signs and can be picked up quite cheaply at any printer’s or online. Unlike foam board it is solid all the way through, so it stays rigid and is much lighter than the equivalent width of MDF. It takes superglue and paint really readily too.

  1. Beautifully done work! For the grungy, rusted out, mutant infested Underhive that is :P
    Is Foamex a brand name or other term for PVC sheeting? I have quite a large amount of the stuff, and if they are the same or similar, how did you find the warping of it? Currently working on a Necromunda board myself, and was curious for a second opinion.
