Drallitoc's Lost Jungle Temple
I built another building - It was very similar to the last building made, so I didn't think to keep you updated as it went. Though I did take pictures:

For my next campaign game I made this prisoner transport. It blurs the line between miniature and terrain but I am gonna stick it in here anyway:

I finally worked out what it is that your scenery reminds me of... It looks very similar to the buildings in the 3rd act of Diablo2 (The city where Mephisto is hiding).

I am continually amazed at your block carving skills, your buildings are so realistic. I must admit, I sometimes prefer the unpainted WIP shots to the finished painted ones. Does that make me....STRANGE ?  Tongue

I like the shot with it sitting on the bed of the hot-wire cutter. Are you trying to tell us you carved it out of one solid block of foam? Big Grin

There could be some residual influences going on. I did log hundreds if not thousands of hours playing Diablo II in my youth.

Our last game went magnificently! We used modified Frostgrave rules with a Dungeon Master/Game Master. Allowing for a very story driven engaging scenario. The two parties stopped in the middle of their looting to rescue a princess - who was to be sacrificed to a spider goddess!

Little did they know - that the sacrifice was needed to prevent a demon from entering their reality... Ooops!

So I made a few new bits. The cage as seen previously (It looks much better after I threw some paint at it):

This summoning circle was a last minute idea that I threw together in a hurry. Just Puffy paint on a piece of clear plastic, liberated from my recycling bin:

Just like the portal before it - It looks amazing under black-light:

The appearance of the Eight Limbed, Demon was an awesome sight to behold:

--- Back to crafting ---

So I finally got the pieces I need to complete my big pyramid - after Hoard 'o' Bits failed me - I asked my Lizardman friend if he could spare some and he was most willing to part with them, for such a worthy cause.

With that being said... I still had to come up with another new project to work on so (I must have at least 5 projects on the go at all times!!!):

This was an interesting experiment. I just poured wood glue into a mould and let it sit for a day:

Might be useful for creating illuminating pieces.

That's all folks! I'm off to bed!

Man what a table!


Do you have a tutorial about how you made those scaffolds, specifically the stringwork?

The thread is run quickly through a flame to burn/melt off the fluffy bits then hit them all with a blob of liquid superglue.

Then, as your signature says. Brown paint and water wash - Paint hides a multitude of sins.

I know it's been said before, but your carving on stone work is brilliant. I love getting lost in the details.

Thank you!

Here is some more:

Admittedly not much progress but I have had some 1:1 work to do on my own house.

I started working on the other pieces, which will go towards finishing the big pyramid:

I continued working on the wire trees that I had forgotten about:

On the subject of trees. I recently had a bit of a spending spree on ebay:

Still waiting for the last box or two to arrive. I had a multitude of problems. The wrong things were sent / the wrong quantity. Dealing with China is always a risky business!
