Here are some images of our badlands table. It is built from insulation foam. We applied a layer of glue, spinkled it with dollar-store hobby sand, then painted it black, then two layers of highlights. The table is 4′ x 4′ (in two 2′ x 4′ section) and we have a third section that we can add on for larger scale game. The nice thing about insulation foam is they are designed to slot together.

Here are some images of our World Works terrain builds.  This was made from their Himmelveil Streets and Thoumonts sets.

A couple of points to note: almost all the Himmelveil Streets builds I have seen look kinda strange.  There are just too many streets going everywhere.  I think if I were beginning this build again I would avoid the temptation to try one of every type of tile and use mostly blank tiles.  I would also “speed-mount” the tiles.  Instead of having each 6″ x 6″ tile a separate, modular piece, I would glue 4 or even 9 tiles to a single piece of foamcore (or perhaps cork).  This would make the construction process much quicker and it would also make it easier to swap things around once it’s built.  In theory, the way I’ve done it here is more flexible and modular, but with so many different parts taking it apart and rebuilding it is a real hassle, so I probably end up switching parts around less than I would with speed-mounted tiles.
