Ghost Archipelago: Pyramid

It may seem that I have posted quite a few large builds recently all in a rush, but they have all been on the go at pretty much the same time and in the last week they have all been completed. After this pyramid there is one last building to complete but that may well be some way off as its the largest of them all and for Frostgrave.

Anyway here is the pyramid I began working on a month or two ago all completed and ready to go.

It is basically three boxes made from packing box card glued together, with an archway added to the top, this was made from a template I made from my Quest set, see here.

Again my Heritor and Warden make a fleeting appearance for scale purposes.

Lots of PVAcrete added.

Ghost Archipelago: Ruin Terrain

Alongside several other projects I have on the go at the moment, one I'm doing for myself is another ruin for Ghost Archipelago.

This was born from a desire to make my own sculptural pieces rather than buying loads of Buddhist aquarium pieces. Then of course I found a ready supply of sculpts from Poundland and everything changed, but since I'm not good at lobbing stuff away I've persevered.

Here is my ruin influenced by various bits of aquaria, but sculpted from PVAcrete on top of a card base.

I'm treating this as an experiment, can't see me making anything like it again, but it has been fun.

Will have to bite the bullet and put some crew together next :-)

Terrain :Fallen Log Update

Since I modeled the fallen log piece I showed the other day, things have moved along apace. Took it to Luke's APS and the pair of us worked on producing a silicon mold which came out well.

We then cast a prototype in plaster and here I have taken that miniature, painted and flocked to high heavens.

How did we get to this point?

Bit of gluing first, then undercoated black.

After the undercoat, a brown over brush all over.

Flock added.

Some clump foliage.

Static grass, which I felt didn't add much, other than pfaff.

Popped on the radiator to dry, while I walked the dogs.

The finished article all set.
