Unfortunately it's work-specific boredom that's causing me to browse the forums, but I don't have access to Photoshop or anything similar from here. I set an alarm on my phone for later this evening to make sure I remember those things for you though :)

DONE! That thing you asked for I mean... not any sort of Terrain.

I'm pretty sure you still owe me a Cherry Coke and a bag of Doritos, but I guess we can call it even.

Very cool terrain. I like how you've created multiple levels you can play on yet keeping it simple and playable.

Brilliant stuff Blue.

I particularly like the cathedral and the accompanying ruined wall pieces. Really well done.

I was eying through the replies but couldn't really find an answer to what I'm wondering. How did you do the facade on the walls? It looks like stripped foamboard for the brickwork since the facade itself is so thick that it can't be the paper on the foamboard. It's also too smooth and coherent to be some sort of spackle or filler, so what's going on there? I'm intrigued.

Keep on building, mate.

It's just foam board bud. It may appear thicker as it was the white on one side, black on the other type foam board. The black is more of a construction paper thickness. I wouldn't recommend to use it though, the paper is seems extra glued on!

Oh, alright!
Guess this is another example of something being easier than it looks. :)

I got another question though. What's your method for peeling the foamcore?
I personally find that peeling it with a knife takes precision and lots of time since the paper is well glued on there. Soaking it in water doesn't really seem to do much either.

I just cut the shape out of the paper gently with a razor then peel it back. It was tedious and annoying at times but it works. You have to be careful not to pull foam with it. Around the edges it always does as you've cut some foam with the paper but just take your time and it works out.

How did you get the colour of the rock on the stone formation set? It looks great!

Would that be the gray stone or the sand stone?

The sand stone. You inspired me to make terrain pieces like them and I have 2 pieces done :).
