Lego Dungeon Geomorphs

I was tidying up our Lego Heroica sets last night when it crossed my mind that in a slightly different layout format the pieces could be used to create dungeons with a more traditional D&D look.

Using a base board, the Heroica parts, and a pile of dark grey bricks from another Lego set, I set about making a small dungeon section.  The scale is 1 stud to 5 feet so the section pictured represents 120'x120'.

This is a great way to create map ideas as the design is far easier to adjust than a paper version.  You can also add extra details (note the fireplace, table, chair, secret door, and the mean looking trap in the Goblin Chief's room). The photo taken directly over the model gives the appearance of a 2D geomorph.  With several different sections designed and photographed they could easily be slotted together in Photoshop.  Of course, an even better option would be to have lots of them made up at the same time, but that would take quite a lot of Lego.
