The H-tab is built from cardboard. It is an H-shape when looked from the side. Each side of the tab holds a dungeon tile (0.5cm thick foam board). On the surface, the H-tab has the texture of a passage way.

Thanks for your support! Just a few things to say:
1) the wall textures are from an old PC game (Might and Magic 2, to be exact). I convert the flat wall into something that looks like if it is viewed from the top by photoshop (shape transformation and then darken the lower side of the wall and lighten the upper side)
2) the half tiles are actually walls. My idea is to create simple tiles that have walls on all sides, with the walls occupying half squares only. When two tiles are brought together, the two walls would occupy one complete square. H-tabs are then used to combined them, and these H-tabs are also one complete square wide. The minis would end up standing on complete squares only.
I am now testing different textures and tile sizes. Hope to release the files shortly.
That's because Ebbles old web site is gone. If you are interested in my stuff, I could post something it my project area.
While i'm interested (or better, courious), i always feel a sense of "missing" when creativity goes lost in the bytes limbo due to a closed site. So, if you like and want it, yes, pls do it when you have spare time
I used 0.5mm foam board for the tiles and the H-tabs are designed for foam boards with such thickness. Since I think white foam boards are easier to obtain, the tiles are lined with black strips of 0.5mm thick to cover the sides of the boards. If you are using black foam boards, you can cut away the black strips to simplify building.
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
