Hi there, I’ll do my best, to be honest I tried quite a few techniques and schemes before settling on the one you see in the promo material. I thought I wrote it down in a note on my phone but can’t seem to find it at the moment. The following is my best recollection of a step by step on how I did my sewer hexes. (Note: I remember thinking it looked pretty ordinary until the Nuln Oil gloss went down, that tied everything together). 1. Prime the hexes black. 2. I wore gloves and, holding some of the hexes at a slight angle, gave them a very slight dust on random edges with Vallejo white spray primer (giving a very loose zenithal type prime I guess you could say. Idea here being to generate some small areas of extra pop later on) 3. Drybrush all over of GW Rakarth Flesh 4. Very light selective drybrush of GW Screaming Skull 5. Use a fine brush and any brand of matte thinned black paint to blackline the cracks on the hexes (maximum contrast for later) 6. I used an airbrush to spray heavily thinned GW Moot Green lightly onto random sections of each hex, not totally covering the applied areas, more just tinting it. If you don’t have an airbrush, you could probably just stipple it on randomly 7. Apply Nuln Oil Gloss to all hexes 8. Optional step is to mix up some two-part resin and tint it with a tiny dot of Moot Green/GW Skrag Brown until you get a mix you’re happy with and stipple small droplets onto random hexes. I hope to eventually get the time to do a video tutorial, but hopefully for now that points you in the right direction. Cheers, Jay

Hi Jonathon, Printing Talisman Sabre Terrain in resin is definitely an option, it's not discussed in the print guide simply because both Jeff and I have done very little experimentation at printing our designs in resin (in fact, up until quite recently, apart from some traps and overlays, we had never tried printing our tiles in resin). I know there have been a number of customers who have been printing our stuff in resin for a while now, and hopefully they'll see this thread and weigh in, but all of the feedback I have heard anecdotally has been very positive. The obvious benefit of printing in resin is the excellent capture of detail in the printed pieces, and it is this reason why Jeff and I one day (when we can find the time amongst the never-ending physical orders we fulfil and Kickstarters etc) want to print ourselves an entire set in resin to keep for our own personal use. The possible drawbacks I'm aware of are; - Print plate size. Most resin printers are smaller than FDM, and therefore fitting our larger models such as the 4 and 5 hex straight walls and the 3 hex point walls can be a challenge. Having said that, more and more large-plate resin printers are coming onto the market so this drawback is becoming less of an issue over time - Cost. Printing in resin, even when the models are hollowed, costs significantly more than printing in PLA - OpenLOCK system. Whilst we haven't done any testing in this area, we'd expect that the lack of flexibility and 'give' in a resin hex, as compared to a hex printed in PLA, would make the OpenLOCK clip system less usable? If that did prove to be the case, one could always opt for magnets to overcome this issue. I (Jay) have recently been printing out an encounter layout for the boss battles in Oathsworn: Into The Deepwood (fantastic game by the way!). I have been printing our Talisman Sabre Terrain outdoor files in resin on my Creality LD-002R and I have been very impressed with the results so far. Due to the smaller size of my plate, I have so far only been printing outdoor floor hexes, columns, and two-hex walls. I'm no resin expert, especially with supports and file orientation in Chitubox, so the hexes I have been just placing flat onto the plate and that has worked fine so long as I am careful with removal and the walls I have just been using auto supports and that has also worked fine. I didn't even hollow the models, and whilst it uses more resin, I actually love the weighty feel of the printed pieces, to me it just gives them a real premium feel! Here's a pic of a small part of the Oathsworn build, I'm really enjoying the terrain being noticeably crisper in detail than FDM (the trees are FDM prints so ignore those). Anyway, in short, I think there is definitely scope for printing our files in resin with stunning results, just so long as you go into it with your eyes open in terms of what you can fit onto your print plate, the higher cost per print, and the possibility that you might have to opt for magnets over clips (or just lay the terrain out unfastened as I do!). I hope this information helps! Jay Talisman Sabre Terrain
