First attempt at Hive Terrain for the Conventions this summer

I am shooting for a huge Hive for the conventions this summer. The Human aerial assault forces will move across the open floor towards the Alien Hive. The idea is that the aliens live in something like this.

I need to be able to do this with the bare minimum of terrain. Only so much of a game will fit in a Ford Ranger! My idea is to use the boxes in which the miniatures will travel to give more verticality to the table tops.

I’ve dyed a number of sheets but I need to do some texturing them, possibly with darker dye or perhaps by spraying bleach in streaks and spots. I’m open to suggestions.
