Elven Mill
by Randy F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/04/2013 13:20:39

Without a doubt, this is my favorite game-table model. It has a playable interior for every floor (3) and has multiple texture/geometry options. And I recently released cutfiles so that building it takes hours less time.

Battlemap - Temple of Abaddon
by Steven S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/04/2012 18:06:52

Yet another gorgeous map from LZW. This is the latest in the Under the Castle series and picks up right where Prison in the Deep left off -- with a mysterious set of huge doors flanked by rune-encrusted columns. The only quirk with this map is that the final 'room' is a three-level vertical chamber, which is presented as three side-by-side rooms. After reading the description carefully and looking closely at the map, you can see how the three relate to each other in three-dimensional space. While initially confusing and possibly a mental roadblock for players, this layout makes for the easiest gameplay and I can't think of a better way to lay out the map.


As usual, the map includes full-size poster views, one-room-per-page views, and isometric visual aides -- which are great for displaying on a monitor when the players are in a particular area of the map to give perspective. Also included are the typical room-by-room descriptions and overall map scenario which are very helpful in understanding the map and a great source of inspiration for encounters.

T-Builder [BUNDLE]
by Brett R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/31/2012 15:43:01

Almost intimidating in how powerful this is.
Learning curve is there but just stick with it. You will quickly get the hang of it.


Use Print to PDF and you will have them for reprint.


Fantastic value.
Great resolution and variation for a ton of Fantasy settings.
HIGHLY recommend this complete product.
I wish I had not taken so long to come back to recommend this.

E&I Wall Set #1
by Billiam B. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 10/14/2012 11:43:46

(Please also see Christopher H.'s review which sums up this set better then my babbles)
LZW are providing customers with a respectable alternative to Fat Dragon's packs. LZW seem to be doing some fairly clever things with PDF layers by allowing the customer to choose different feature details. So make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader before looking an LZW product. I reckon that this is one of those deceptive packs, i.e the cover displays a mere handful of walls and pillars, when you are in fact buying a complete modular building system for dungeon interiors and small stone buildings. Seriously inventive stuff!

The Crashed Spaceship - Battlemap
by Scott W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/08/2012 00:43:39

A really nice map that worked perfectly for my Slipstream (Savage Worlds) convention adventure. My only complaint is that the outline for the squares is a tad light making them somewhat difficult to see. Other than that, an unusual and very cool product!

Modular Trench System
by Billiam B. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 08/03/2012 19:10:40

I like to compare square tiles to irregular shaped systems (it's an odd hobby, I know). The solution here is the use of a terrain background poster over which are arranged the abundantly detailed trench segments. Suitable for contemporary and post-apocalyptic play. The versatility of these tiles means that they have a high reusuability value - and are ideal for wargamers and RPGers alike, which makes the current price of $5.50 good value - especially when compared to preprint floor plan products.

Ground Set #14 - Trenches
by Chris H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 07/27/2012 12:35:41

This set is ideal for a WW1 game involving trench warfare at miniatures scale, but you might also find uses for them in other settings. The tiles use PDF layers and LZW’s beautifully-illustrated controls to provide an amazing variety of trench pieces. The English instructions have been much improved since Rich Crotty started editing the material, though there’s still a way to go for the text to reach the excellence of the artwork.

Ground Set #14 - Trenches
by David W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/19/2012 05:33:22

WOW! That is just about it!


This trench set is totally freakin' AMAZING! It features a "control panel" (that looks like it is DIRECTLY out of WWI) that allows you to toggle on options, and even control the way the trench runs.


I sat down last night and was in awe of the LIMITLESS possiblities that this set offers. You basically get the options of an "empty hole," one with skids as a floor, with puddles, without puddles, gear and tools strewn about...even the option with or without squares!


There was ONE MAJOR set-back with the set. The set boasts 6"x6" tiles when I laid them out on a piece of 20"x30" foamboard, I quickly realized the tiles are 5 3/4"... a whole 1/4" OFF! Even if I took away some stars for this error... I would STILL give it a total of 5/5 stars, because the ONE small detail is overshadowed by the AWESOMENESS that this set contains.

Thank you for your review. We're glad you're enjoying Ground Set: Trenches. My suggestion for printing: turn off ANY “fit to page” options in your printer driver when you print out the tiles and click the "Actual Size" checkbox. This way, you'll get the whole 6 inch-wide tile. It's really important when You print to an A4 sized sheet. Have a good game and thank you!
The tomb of the Fallen Angel
by Christopher H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 06/28/2012 19:03:26

This “battlemap” is really a complete small dungeon at 1" = 5 ft. scale. The tomb itself is a fairly large room, but there are half a dozen or so other rooms/encounter areas included. The “information” file includes a key, but it’s written in very poor English, and although some of the bits are easy to decipher (“expiration” instead of “exit”), some are not (“Does not release his sword till then while his relics were not sent to him by the teleport”). The maps are beautifully drawn and richly detailed; the staircase map offers some slight customization via PDF layers. This product doesn’t include the isometric maps that add so much to some of LZW’s other products; I state this not as a complaint, but as a point of information.

T-Builder - SWAMP
by Christopher H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 06/25/2012 00:16:45

Start with a square (six inches to a side) of mud and grass, then layer in paths, water, graves, trees, and various other objects (including a Cthulhu statue) to create an immense variety of swamp tiles with T-Builder: Swamp. The LZW crew produces great artwork, and here they leverage the power of PDF layers to give you all the options listed before, and more. They’ve even included a clever “hide the corner” layer to give your water and path squares a more organic look. The artwork and use of PDF technology is top-notch. The instructions, written in English, contain many grammatical errors and awkward constructions, which occasionally creates some minor confusion, but not to the point where you can’t use the T-builder.

Battlemap - The Lumberman's House
by Christopher H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 06/25/2012 00:15:36

This 2D map pack leverages the power of layers—not PDF layers, but simply stacking maps on top of each other on the tabletop. The base map depicts the titular house, plus a bit of the surrounding area (including a mine track, a patch of phosphorescent mushrooms, and more). Additional, smaller maps depict the upstairs and the roof, making it very easy to conceal and reveal the interior as needed during your game. The LZW crew even included a key to the map, although most of what’s labeled on the key is unnecessary; GMs know a saw, mine rails, chess board, etc. when they see it. The English text needs a good bit of cleanup, but the composition and execution of the artwork is great.

E&I Wall Set #1
by Christopher H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 06/25/2012 00:13:33

Even if you already own a set of print-and-build dungeon walls, you’d do well to consider adding this set to your collection. The walls themselves are easy to build, but the LZW crew has included a feature I haven’t seen anywhere else: a very simple system for linking the walls together using ordinary bobby pins. That’s a great innovation. An even better innovation is the “options ruler,” which harnesses the power of PDF layers better than LZW or anyone else (as far as I’ve seen) has ever done it before. It’s a little hard to explain what the options ruler does, but once you’ve seen it in action, you’ll love the unprecedented level and ease of customizability that the system offers. This set is pretty heavy on instructions, and the instructions file credits a copy editor; while the English instructions are noticeably better than in some earlier sets, more care still needs to be taken to bring the text up the excellence of the artwork. Normally, that would limit my rating to four stars, but the excellence and utility of the options ruler overrides that this time. “E&I,” by the way, stands for “exterior and interior.”

Forgotten Ruins
by Christopher H. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 06/25/2012 00:08:48

This nice-looking 3D model requires a good bit of precise cutting and lot of patience to assemble well. The artwork is very nice, but the walls, columns, and so on are unrealistically thin—the thickness of two sheets of cardstock. This affects both the verisimilitude and the sturdiness of the model. It’s not a bad piece, but there are better ruins models out there, especially given the relatively high price.
