How to create a "board & batten" wall effect

Hi

Although there are various "wainscoting" items in the library browser, I'm struggling to find a way to create layouts for a wall that show this kind of look:

or perhaps even this....

Its for the central (TV) wall of a cabinet design similar to this....

I'd love to be able to play around with some sizing / layout options.

 

Any thoughts??

 

Many thanks in advance

Custom Backsplash, Soffits, Slabs, Shapes (from the Library) ...

 

Thank about how you can use the existing tools to do things like this.

Your horizontal/vertical can be done manually using either the "Custom Backsplash" tool found under "Cabinet Tools" or with custom slabs sized to emulate the boards and batts all  done manually. The diamond pattern image might be done using sloped soffits but I have never tried to do that using them.
