I am a great fan of Dutchmogul (http://www.thingiverse.com/dutchmogul/about) and devonjones (http://www.thingiverse.com/devonjones/about) here in Thingiverse, and I have been collecting their excellent designs avidly, I encourage all to look into their stuff! It is pretty awesome and only gets better the more time passes. I thank you both, for the years of inspiration and great content
Lately, I have been craving to play some of my tabletop games, and I found myself in acute need of terrain. I needed a lot, and I needed it fast, for a minimum amount of money of course.
The only drawback with the dungeon tiles found here, and other gaming terrains, in my opinion, is that they are quite robust and require a lot of material. Looking at the very thick walls of the first Wayfarer Tactics terrain set and comparatively thinner pillars I thought that there was an issue with the proportion of one to the other. So I used the pillar as the main structure and made thin walls to match. Aside from that, there is a remarkable amount of gaming mats today that render the printing of floors redundant, unless you want to replicate specific terrain types. So I made due with just pillars and walls, getting an inexpensive type of terrain that can be print in generous amounts with next to no filament.
I hope you enjoy it and I wish you happy gaming!

Print standing up with the small side of the wall facing the build platform, these walls are not made to print flat on the build platform as they are textured on both sides. Be sure to use a brim so that the flat wall sections stay in place and do not fall, if you have a heated build plate you will have an easier time getting perfectly straight wall section.
2 shells are more than enough to create stable and sturdy wall sections. Make sure to have at least 3 top and bottom shells to ensure part integrity.
How I Designed This
I basically used Dutchmoguls pillar design and cut slots into it that would allow for wall sections to be inserted, instantly creating useful, light, and easy to assemble building that offered much customization.
The wall sections have a base thickness 0f 2.5 mm and a height of 60 mm. I did not pay attention to the length of the wall sections, in case you need wall sections in specific lengths for games that use a grid, feel free to make your own or scale them non-uniformly to suit your purposes.
All details on the walls were extruded from the basic wall element just a couple of tenths of a millimeter, this has worked really well and is more than enough to create a good level of surface detail. More intricate designs are very possible and I encourage you, if you so decide, to make some!
