    Hey! I'm thinking about doing a 4' by 4' board for Cityfight but i want it to contain plenty of destroyed buildings, barricades and possibly a large open field style area.

    I was thinking about adding some forge world buildings but they're pretty expensive. Does anyone have any ideas on how to replicate the effects for as cheap as possible?

    Plus i want some sandbags but i don't know where to buy them from. Could anyone advise me on this?

    I use my home made foam cutter and some construction grade poly steyrene....
    (the blue kind), it comes in thicknesses of 1, 1.5, 2, and 3 inches. and comes in about a 2 foot by 8 foot sheets. That&#39;s enough to make quite a bit of terrain. Plus you don&#39;t have to worry about it flaking apart like cheap styrafoam. Total cost per sheet is about 6-8 bucks........ A little more up here in alaska though.....

    As for sandbags I make them out of clay that you can buy from craft stores such as michales. Make it how I want it then cook it in the oven...... After it cools off. I paint it to go with whatever board I&#39;m using.

    You mentioned the blue industrial polystyrene, isn&#39;t that quite hard to get your hands on, not to mention it might be expencive?
    I got access to some of here at work, to me it looks like it&#39;s more flexible than the usual polystyrene, am I right?

    Must not be the same stuff. It&#39;s the type that they use in construction. Really hard stuff. It&#39;s compressed and doesn&#39;t flake away. I&#39;ll try and upload a picture of it and some of the terrain I&#39;ve made with it when I get home from work. The stuff I use is real solid. It cost me around 8 bucks for a 4&#39; X 8&#39; sheet. So it&#39;s not too expensive.

    Cardboard cut at weird angles and sealed with putty is really useful to me.

    The funny angles sounds like the design of the german bunkers of WW2.
    Ever seen them?

    About the polystyrene, I think I know the stuff you mean.
    I still haven&#39;t seen it in blue, but I know of a pink equivalent that is just as good.

    No, I haven&#39;t seen the German Bunkers. Post a pic&#33;
