These files will let you print a complete, "deluxe", set of floor tiles, for use with the board game Gloomhaven, by Isaac Childres.
The four "basic" floor types are: Man-Made Stone, Wooden, Dungeon, and Outdoor (earth/ sand/ grass).
There are ten of each basic tile type included. Textures for these tiles have been taken from existing things made by Robagon and rbross, used with permission - thanks, guys.
There are also two individual tiles to replace the two other "overlay" tiles in the game: Water and Lava.
For a complete set of floor boards, as included in the game, you will need to print the following frames:
- 1 each of Frames E, F, M, and N;
- 2 each of Frames C, D, G, I, J, and K;
- 3 each of Frames H and L; and
- 4 each of Frames A and B.
These frames all fit on the print bed of a TEVO Little Monster Delta. Many of these will be too large for print beds of a smaller size. I have no plans to split frames into smaller parts at this time. If anyone wishes to undertake this, please do so.
For a “complete” set of tiles, to allow you to play any scenario in the Scenario Book, you will need to print the following:
- 150 x Man-Made (purple) tiles;
- 115 x Wooden tiles;
- 170 x Dungeon (orange/ brown) tiles;
- 115x Outdoor (earth/ grass) tiles;
- 30 x Water tiles; and
- 17 x Lava tiles.
The above list includes a few extra of each of the four basic tiles, to put under doors, and use as joining tiles between frames, where necessary.
I've included two different types of surfaces for Outdoor tiles: 3 x Earth, and 10 x Sand. The Earth tiles were remixed first, and I wasn't happy with them, so I remixed the Sand tiles as well, which I think are much better.
Some people were happy with the Earth tiles, so I've left them as part of the files.

Supports: are not needed for frames, but will be useful for tiles.
Layer Height: given the heights of the frames are 1 mm, and the basic tile is 2 mm, I would recommend printing at a layer height that the heights are divisible by. You can get away with .4 for both type of things, but .2 will be better for the finish on the tiles.
Infill: should not be less than 10%, and probably doesn't need more than 20%.
Basing the “Earth” Tiles
If you decide to print the Earth tiles, I’d suggest basing them with actual sand, which should get rid of the awful "staggered hill effect", as per included image. The two undercoated things on the left are the same things that have had sand glued to them on the right.
To achieve this effect, cover the top of the tile with PVA glue, and sprinkle sand on top (press down on the tile gently, so the glue can fill in cracks. Let it dry, then either apply another coat of PVA glue to seal the top, or spray on a Matt Varnish (or ‘Ardcoat, from Games Workshop, which is much the same thing, but more expensive...). Let that dry, and the tile is done.
