8x8 Room Tiles?

Postby Saiyaforthelight » Saturday March 12th, 2016 4:33am

Does anyone know where I can get a decent 8x8 room tile I can upscale to 30mm squares? The only one I can find is Agin's tiles and they seem a little low-res to scale up. I want to start using some truly huge spaces on the board for some epic battles to contrast the smaller dungeon areas.

The only large board space I remember is from dungeon quest (games workshops edition), it is 10x13 but it’s nothing fancy. It’s old style and looks like Gary Chalk’s work. But it has a treasure room on the center, so you will need a cut and paste anyway.

You could use the central room of HQ and duplicate some of the central squares. Can you do this?

Sadly no - I had a play around with some WHQ tiles this morning, and I just lack the skills to manipulate artwork. Thanks for the suggestions though!

the Dungeon and Dragons, Master Tile set has an 8x8 in it

Nice, d&d master tile set could be a good option.

I've made an image with some duplicate squares of the central room. I think on the table will look fine.

It's 2400x2400:

Looking through my collection, most of the 8x8's aren't very good. What style are you looking for?

Have you looked through Maike05's site to see if there is anything there that fits what you need? There's a lot of really good stuff there.

Thank you all for your suggestions!

Cynthia: Do you know what scale the D&D tiles are? I've toyed with getting a couple from Amazon.

Patroclus: Thank you! That tile is exactly the sort of thing I'm after.

Mitchie: Style wise I'm after anything which suits the theme of the HQ board, but I'm not going to limit myself too much when it's so hard to find anything suitable!

Statos: Thanks, yes I've looked on there. Found a couple of things, but often the resolution is a little low or the DPI is off. Some amazing tiles though.

You and others are welcome to use this template I made - this is from my Project Chthonic set - on hold atm, but should be high enough res and decent enough artwork to use.
