The price, however, leaves much to be desired. The terrain costs 90 pounds sterling for a 2'x2' section. Hardly worthwhile for questionable and unreliable quality. So used my thinker box and came up with an inexpensive alternative. I'll use some Pegasus Gothic City terrain along with a 1'x1' piece of quarter-inch sintra to create a Zone Mortalis tile.
I took some photos along the way to provide a helpful tutorial in case any my readers want to try this out with some nice looking terrain and don't feel like mortgaging their home to get some tunnel-fighting action in.
The first thing to do is to gather your materials. Obviously, you need your standard hobby supplies. Glue, X-Acto knives, hobby saws, etc. You're also going to need a box or three of the Pegasus terrain sets and the aforementioned quarter-inch sintra cut into 1'x1' squares. Sintra is available at most sign-making stores; I usually ask if they have any scraps. If you can't find sintra, some sort of wood can be used as a substitute with some adjustments to the procedure. Now that you've got your supplies handy, it's time to get down to business.
The first thing you're going to do is mark the sintra along the edges in two-inch intervals.
From start to finish, this tile took about three hours, that's with figuring out exactly what I had to do in order to make it work and photographing the project. I imagine an entire board like this could easily be completed within a week.
The box of Pegasus terrain ran me almost fifty dollars at my local hobby store, which probably contains enough wall sections for at least three 1'x1' tiles. I buy my sintra from a local sign store for $3.25 per square foot. In total, each 1'x1' tile will cost less than $20. The cost will be even less if you decide to cast up wall sections in resin and use those instead of buying the plastic terrain sets.
As always, if you have any questions or comments, post 'em! I'll be happy to answer any questions and help you out if you decide to make use of this tutorial and take and post additional photos if you guys so desire.
