This is awesome! You should share this on the Facebook group "Fans of Hirst Arts Fantasy Architecture", I know that the people there would love to see this too.

This is really cool!  I like really like some of your ideas here.  It seems that you have actually used a limited number of molds to great effect, I'd really like to know which ones you used.  I am in the middle of making a modular dungeon with the field stone mold myself and really appreciate the effort you've put in. 
Now some questions.  Would you be able to post a picture of the pieces apart so that we can see what your design is?  Also, what did you use for the rugs, they look great.  I know that you mention doing some more highlighting and some of the pieces look like they have been highlighted, so is that the plan for the whole dungeon?  How are the curved pieces built?  How did you do the rack and the iron maiden?
Thanks for sharing.

 
It is better to steal a good idea than invent a bad one.

Hi, sorry for my late replay i was out from home. To make the dungeon i used only five mould, #58 #70 #71 #85 #260, in fact i'm thinking to buy some mould for a future project, always n the fieldstone range, roof and wood plank stuff. Now the other questions:

- For the rugs, i print from internet the pictures fo some carpet or tapestry i like, i glued them on a first-aid bandage and i let near 3/4 mm of wires outside the picture. When everything is dry, i colored the extsernal wires of the main colour of the picture. Very simple but beautiful. Indeed my wife makes the rugs

- The plan is to use a dark gray + a little of bonewhite of Vallejo

- The curved pieces of the cave are made with foamboard, 20 mm thickness. I shaped all the pieces with a hot wired, similar to a solder, i guess

- The iron maiden is from Reaper Miniatures, Bones serie, i bought it. For the wires i used a iron wire covered with plastic, similar to the one you can use to tie plants or flower, the green ones. I fix togheter the wires with cyanoacrylate glue, after that i colour with gunmetal Vallejo, and finally i wash them with black Vallejo

Following you'll find some pictures of the pieces and tecnique i used to build the dungeon:

Hi everyone, finally, i finished the dungeon 100%. The pictures are a lot and big so, attached to the present, i give you the link for the gallery, i hope you enjoy the finished work! Do you know some good rules to play with miniatures in my new dungeon? something more detail and deep than Heroquest, i guess.

Wonderfull job, really. I love the two different sections, with outside parts and inside dungeon.

Frequently i found very greyish dungeons, and it bores me. You have managed to avoid that by adding loads of small details in your rooms, and it's a very good idea. I especialy like the carpets idea. I will re take it for my own dungeon, i think.

As for your question, Bruce has a link on it's site to present a whole game about dungeon crawling.

Arriving a little late for this, but life has been busy lately. You've created an elegant build there, trippinister. I like the little details, such as the sacks with different coloured contents. Well done!
