My home terrain submission has a decidedly practical nature to it - it's a carry box and game board for Blood Bowl. The core blood bowl game comes with a card board game status tracker that has seven components 3 ares to place off field figures to denture status (reserves, injured or Ko'd/Dead) and 4 numerical tracks (score, 1H turns, 2H turns and remaining re-rolls). The cardboard is just "too 2D for me so I decided it would be nice to build a custom carry case / game board.
dimensions of the box are 15 inches wide, 12 inches deep and 2.5 inches
high. All the wood used was reclaimed from other projects and milled
by yours truly.
The tracker tops fits snuggly but can be removed to store figures, dice and player cards - you can fit a whole team in there.
dugout was made from extruded polystyrene that I cut into 1x1x1.5 inch
blocks using a hot wire cutter and then glued into place.
I also made the lattice work for the trackers using a dremel band saw. It was a little tedious but I like what came out.
look at the dugout section. From left to right there is the reserve
player area complete with a chalk band and secret play for the players
to the right we find the infirmary where injured layers are placed in
the hopes of returning to the field. You can see this blood bowl team
has the very latest in medical equipment to tend its players.
Bowl is, sadly, and extremely violent sport and there are deaths.
Those unfortunate players are placed here. Wait a minute - what is
that macabre hot dog making machine doing in this room?
I see - umm former players are "recycled" so the fan can continue to
enjoy their "talents". Vertical integration at it's best
view of the dugout from the other side - you can see some benches for
the players to sit on. No expense was sparred outfitting this locker
All of the details were scratch built using wood
scraps. I'd like to say there was a lot of planning going into this
project but that would not be true. I kind of "winged-it".

Some "under-contraction shots - one can not have too many clamps in a workshop. Just like miniatures!
Block cutting - I made lots and lots of 'em.
wood was finished with a basic danish oil, which holds up well and
highlights the natural color of the wood (it's mostly birch).
