My mind is always full of ideas; some are popping up and leaving because they were not good to start with, and others keep bubbling in my brain untill they are done and then I start doing something with them. Occasionally I have ideas that I like so much that I start doing something with them before they are done bubbling, but that hardly ever ends well. And some ideas need to stew for a very, very long time before I got to the point where they become usable.
I am going to be busy with my meadow tiles and painting loads of other thing, but I am also working on 2 ideas that have at long last left the bubbly phase. Both took a long time to develop in my mind because both are complicated; a revolving labyrinth and the possibility to make vertical dungeons with our hexagonal tiles.

When I first had my idea of my meadow tiles it was extremely simple: basic empty hex tiles with bumps for stepping stones. But that would be a rather barren grassy waste-land, nice for a very scary adventure I guess but very boring in the long run.
I had some ideas for other things to create, but I am still developing my Blender skills and most of them are still a bit too challenging and I do want to give myself reachable goals. So I started to think: what can I make that only requires basic shapes?
Simple: a fence!

I am about to upload my WDhex Meadow Tiles to MyMiniFactory and I am extremely proud about that. After we made our dungeon tiles with stones in the summer of 2019 I had loads of ideas and plans for more tiles. Unfortunately I got extremely frustrated with Blender (the software I use), life in general got complicated and I had given up on my dungeon tiles.
Untill a few weeks ago!

When I started playing tabletop RPG's I tried some card board dungeon tiles and I did not like them, too much of a hassle. I also proclaimed that I would never use those 3d nonsense because theatre of mind and drawing maps on the grid were much more fun for the imagination. Then... I got a 3d printer and I decided that being willing to admit I was wrong is a very adult thing to do.
