Quick Terrain Piece

A friend recently had asked for advice on making a dungeon for his D&D games, which could be almost modular as I guess you don't want to explore the same dungeon over and over. My thoughts went straight back the stone walls I made and how great the blue underfloor insulation is for 'carving' bricks into. So I passed over my suggestions and mocked up a quick example.

Its roughly put together but I think it looks quite impressive. I tried later on (with no photos sadly) using magnetic tape to hold the walls to the floor (this allowing it to be packed away) which seems to work quite well.
After doing this I realised my blue foam was down to a small sheet. Now I'm trying to organise my wargaming stuff for space saving so I decided to use it up so its one less thing in my terrain making box.
Quick scan through some YouTube videos and I settled on a WW2 bunker made by the Terrain Tutor. Here is the Link for the video. If you have never heard of the terrain tutor he a great sauce for all wargaming terrain ideas and techniques.  In the video he used foam board where as I used the blue insulation foam but other than that I tried to use the same techniques.  First of I cut out the bits required.

A couple of pieces cut out.
The cut pieces were stuck on top of each other.

Next I stuck it all together with good old PVA and then down into a cardboard base

No bad for a short period of time I reckon. Next up was to 'paint' it with filler

I write these as I build but update! I've found more blue foam!!! So have more bunkers and maybe a small bunker complex planned!! Will keep you posted!


  1. Nicely done buddy. The bunker looks fab. Your first picture angle made it look like a gladiator about to enter the Colessium.

    If your mate wants some tips on dungeon building, I've done a recent series of videos uploaded to YouTube on the subject

    1. Awesome mate I will pass the links on.
      Thank you as well the small bunker complex is roughly built onto making it look like concrete
