Dunkelshelf Upgrade

Right from the get go, the ‘streets’ of my Dunkelshelf was meant to be build with sewers. It’s just quite the project, since I have never really build anything out of foam. And the foam I had on hand, was/is kinda crappy. Still used it though πŸ˜€

I For this project all I had was the before mentioned foam, some cardboard, a little bit of foam core, a glue gun and some toilet roll cardboard. Oh right…and also some cards from a game, that I’ve kept around. Cause why throw out good cardstock πŸ˜‰

Not shown here, but I realised (after gluing the card-cobblestone on the top) that the top would warp and bend. So there’s also been added some strips of foam core to help keep the integrity of it all.

At some point I was contemplating having the ‘top layer’ be one of the Carnevale street modules. That idea was dropped again.

All street modules created. Double checking the height is right.

Cutting up the left over card from the JoA game, to use as some quick street stones. It does yield a quite shallow and clearly fake result. But definitely better than nothing.

Adding some texture paint to hide the cardboard, trying to show the difference on this picture.

Making the sewer a little more interesting.

Final result after paint, washes and pigments. I really like it. It’s not a work of art, but it’s durable, modular, can easily be used for other games and definitely add some fun to the Dunkelshelf.

Now to get the rest done πŸ™‚
