Cavern Geomorphs

I'm planning to make some 2.5D cavern geomorphs out of cardboard to compliment my 3D Dwarven Forge Dungeon Tiles.

I plan to make each (well, most) geomorphs 4x4" in size with 2" openings to match the DF.

Here's a map of the tiles I plan to make --

Each large box is 4x4" square.  I'm making curvy and straight passages.  Some will have rough hewn sides (maybe all, depending upon creative license).

The large cavernous rooms *should* be expandible if I do them correctly.  I think you can see how that might work.

I'll need about 2.5x3.5 feet of cardboard (no problem there) to make this set.

I'll keep you informed as it progresses!

I am very interested in this project, will be following along. How do you plan on cutting the cardboard?

@Sheepish -- I'm planning to just use a utility knife. I'm OK if the cuts are a little irregular -- it's a cavern!

Lookin good. I really like seeing the mix of 3D structures and 2D tiles. I'd just do it on cardstock though so it can fit under the blocks. Will you make some purely black ones for pits and chasms, and bridge sections that you can put together.

There was supposed to be a question mark at the end of that instead, but the upper part fell off and rolled under the Internet.
