This is a pictorial guide to how I built my magnetic modular dungeon. The walls and floor tiles are from Fat Dragon Games, E-Z Dungeon system. The guide to how I built the walls can be found in my post Dungeon Terrain….my first foray into terrain modeling , the only change is I no longer use the Styrofoam and use a double thickness of 3/16” foam board. While not a thick as the hollow of the wall it is close enough to keep them from being crushed. All tiles and walls are printed on 110# card stock. So now on to the floor construction.
22” x 24” sheet of foam board
My sheet metal fabricator cut the sheets 22” x 24” since that is what he had laying around, I would have liked 24”x24” but for free I will take them. I have 3 pieces of sheet metal to make floors with.
I used spray glued to adhere the metal to foam board, I will stick with this technique if I make more floors in the future. After I made the first floor I had some small gaps between the 8”x8” floor tiles so I sprayed sheets 2 and 3 with flat black primer. I only applied a very light coat of paint.
Metal spray glued to the foam board, and drying.
Adding the fist tile, I sprayed the metal and the tile with glue. It makes it hard as the tile will stick your fingers as glue starts to build on them. I found spraying the entire metal sheet first was helpful than I just sprayed the tile as I got ready to apply it.
This project has been fun and I can’t wait to use it in a game. I am going to make some magnetic bases for minis so that I can run a vertical dungeon crawl for my players. I have doorways and other features for the dungeon but have not had time to cut and build them yet. The amount of extras, and neat little features included in the Fat Dragon Games PDFs are amazing. For now though I need to build walls, lots of walls as I have 3 – 22” x 24” dungeon floors, that is right 1584 square inches of terror awaits my PCs mwahahahahahahaha!!!!
