I've finished the initial set of pieces for underground passages/tombs. For a finish I used paper sheets, cut as required and stuck to the cardboard sections. I went with a lighter shade of grey so the figures would show up better. There are enough sections for a good range of basic setups.

Having used up another of the A4 cardboard boxes to double up the number of sections, I have enough to make up a reasonable sized setup (about half the table)..

sketching out some ideas, two pages of jottings and scribbling ....
well the basic schema seems to work nicely, I'll cut up the other box to make some more sections then go on to think about tomb entrances, internal doors and the final finish (probably using printed paper sheets).

Crichton Odd had been on an expedition investigating ruins and such like in Brunei, on their way back to India, they stopped off in the French Protectorate of Cambodia. While there, they heard that a small party of female archaeologists had gone missing. Odd volunteered to help find them and after getting permission from the authorities he went into the jungle with his fiancee and a small detachment of Indian soldiers...
After searching for a couple of days near where the missing archaeologists had been last reported he found them and led them back to safety, as they reached a small rise next to an old ruin they could just see in the distance a farmstead.
