    So my brother has been working on his custom Catan pieces for some time now , and he is basically complete with the base game. Recently he has been adding knight figures (for the Knights/Barbarians expansion) made out of cast Warhammer pieces, and he has finally added the Lizardmen!

    They are all made from leftover Lizardmen heads/weapons bits from my saurus warriors/temple guard, donated to the glorious Catan cause! The lizardmen serve as the knight pieces, here are the rest of them:

    Boats, roads, fortresses, cities,and settlements. The lizardmen are green (of course) and my brother has made a few different factions for the other colors from other Warhammer armies we have collected (mostly combinations of Wood Elves and Bretonnians).

    Here is the board at the start of our last recent game:

    And here is the game when it was finally complete, with a resounding Lizardmen victory!

    As you can see, he has made tons of sea tiles as well as "cloud" tiles, which represent those tiles that have not yet been explored by the players. Each cloud tile has the name of one of the other resources underneath it, so when they are explored you can just flip them over and see what you have found, whether it is a forest, mountain, desert, or even a gold mine!

    At the end of the game we went ahead and revealed the rest of the tiles to see what the entire continet would have looked like:

    I hope you like the pictures, the game is a lot of fun to play, I am proud of all the effort my brother has put into it! :vulcan:

    The Fog of War feature is an interesting twist.
