TMNT boardgame/dio -pic heavy-

Hello, I'm new to this site, I wanted to share the project I'm currently working on... It's a totally modular boardgame based on Ninja Turtles. It has street level and sewer level maps, and will involve racing around the city, trying to stop Shredder from spreading havoc. Anyway, here's an example of one of the maps, the buildings all collapse flat for storage and everything is swappable.





















Most everything is scratch-built and hand painted. I'm around 80% complete and busting hump to get this thing done.

Here's a look at a sample sewer map:



















The "sewage" in the center is really glossy, so in person it looks like water. Again these are all modular pieces for a variety of map possibilities.

Thanks for looking!

that is probably the best tmnt dio i've ever seen. well done! the only suggestion i have for you to consider would be to maybe paint a thin layer of gloss over that stream of sewage. it would enhance the realistic look of it.

This would be better suited to the NECA line.

In person it looks really glossy, it just didn't translate in the photos for whatever reason.

Absolutely! I'm in CT, I don't know how much of a hike that is for you, but I'll let you know when it's finished!

Thanks, I was going for a comic book look. I've always felt the Turtles' universe is kind of exagerated.

Here's a look at another sewer map as well as some of the pickup items. The grappling hook has hand holds for scaling buildings in game...








For some reason, the pizza doesn't look as good in the photos. It looks really cool in person.

Some of the printed materials have come in. Here's a pic of the NYC map, the hero cards and the enemy stats. The Turtle Van token is used to represent the Turtle's location on the NYC map.

Thank you, I'm glad to see so much excitement for this project. Right now I'm just building the prototype for my own entertainment. I'm not sure how I'd go about mass producing it, so far I've clocked at least 80 hours on it. Does anybody know anyone at Playmates?
