    Default Make a physical 3D map

    Inspired by RE's "make a map by hand" challenge suggestion, I think it would be cool to make a map by hand but in 3D. You could use anything you wanted, legos, clay, milk cartons, resin, bones and skulls just as long as the only thing you use the computer for is uploading the picture of your creation

    I voted for this. It sounds like it would be fun...though I have no ideas about what I'd do to take part.

    I basically suggested the same thing under the title "Sculpture Map".

    I also did my garden entry in Lego, didn't get many votes though. Lego's actually quite hard to photograph well.

    (That's arguably a big snag with this challenge, that photography skills will be important for getting a good picture of one's entry. I worry that the image of the object will end up more important than the object itself.)

    Mashed potatoes. I'm definitely thinking mashed potatoes.

    @cantab ... didn't see your thread - if it pops up - I'll vote *lol* ... and yes, you're right 1. lego is shiny and thus photographs badly without pro equipment. 2. the photoskills can be a hindrance - I think the best thing would to put in the voting thread that people shall NOT valuate the photography quality but only the map itself. Photomanipulation is of course quite out except for perhaps putting a row of photos together to show several sides or details.

    @jbgibson not bad... a mountain perhaps?

    When I was a teen (some 15 years ago...) my brother and I used to make our "dungeon tiles" with mdf boards and plaster bricks using a rubber mold we luckly found on a "build your own miniature hourse" kids box set. Such good times... Thou rater heavy and bulky "tiles" to store. Thank gosh for Dwarven forge, thou I do not own any
