  1. If people want I can post pics of the first 2 levels stacked and semi lined up.
  2. This is missing the 3rd level. It's gonna be tall
  3. So I still need to glue the 1st floor turret, and 2 interior walls, but don't have enough pins to keep stuff in place. I MIGHT be able to do that tonight is some other stuff dries soon enough that I can pull and move some other pins, but I don't really intend to. Next task is cutting out my 3rd floor pieces. I'll do the detail cutting and glue those tomorrow. And Tuesday morning I'll do a mad base paint on the exterior. That'll give me 3 sets of walls. And tons of time to glue those to the bases/ do the roofs. Then I'll have to decide if I keep it (combo of too much work and too many mistakes).
  4. Some gluing revealed some mistakes... I literally shimmed 2 walls together :o and it's only some walls gluing and pinned. 1st and 2nd (partial) stacked but not glued.
  5. Rough dry fit for floor 2. need to cut down a few more walls and windows and doors. Then ready to glue. This has been more successful than 1st floor, but also easier because of inner rooms giving better structure.

    What's the name so I can check? Right now debating Cave Pools (a bunch of mid terrain trays and a bunch of pieces) and actual terrain trays set (for a 12x12) and maybe banks/stalagmites set. Those might be roughly similar cost options but give me different things. Locks so far: adventure pack 4 (some fun scatter and variety of small trays) natural bridge & stairway (big pieces). If I was going big, probably forest terrain trays and a few things to go with. To combine with Tablescapes and stuff I mentioned above, what's the one (moderately priced) piece/set you think I'm missing? Looking for suggestions, please.

    Weird. Natural bridge and stairway were my 2 must haves.
  8. Pins removed glue stayed. Still havent attached turret. Today was surprise baby sitting so I only had 1.5 hours to work. I got a lot cut. All the walls for the 2nd floor. If I can do the 3rd floor and glue all the walls and grids to the bases tomorrow, then I can conceivably paint walls with base color and glue them to the bases Monday.
  9. 1st floor kinda done.i haven't glued the tower bit or interior walls but everything else exterior is glued. As you can see things are a bit off line from the top, but it'll hold when I glue it to the base. I'll cut the 2nd floor differently. It's been over a year, so it took a bit to get the hang of working with foam. From the side it looks fine and it'll look better once painted. Mantic terrain for effect. Even though it ain't perfect this has been the most complicated build I've attempted and I'm pretty sure its gonna turn out fine, especially considering all the equipment fails and mistakes.
  10. So I made some weird cuts. They are salvageable. None of the left side walls are glued. The turret is glued and pinned but not connected to walls. Front, right, and back walls are glued and pinned. I have cut the interior kitchen wall but not the pantry wall then its paint and glue to each other tomorrow while I do the same for the 2nd floor exterior walls. Threw my Mantic terrain crate stuff in to see how it would fit, and it's a go. Maybe pics later after an update.
  11. Trying to fix numerous mistakes and prevent new ones. Right side angles aren't sharp enough. Sigh. Even bigger pain than I thought. Only got to start 30 minutes ago. No idea if I can finish cuts for this floor.

    Got my pledge manager email and trying to decide about what to get. Stuff escalated in price pretty quickly. I'm wondering about how people value time over the extra cost of pre-painted. Does it delay shipping at all to get painted stuff? I'm planning on a few things a la carte. Minimum for my must buys painted would be 120 incl shipping. Stairway to Violence, Natural Bridge, Webbed Lair adventure pack, Cave Pool pack Unpainted vs painted would cost about 75$ more Stuff is big, but there's not many pieces to paint. Looking for people's experiences as to value.
  13. I cut 2 big pieces of wall for the 2nd floor but had to stop. My cat kept getting in the way, and trying to eat bits of foam. Seeing as we already have an expensive vet history with her, everything got the vaccuum. That's a major blow to actually being able to use the house at all. I got surprise cleaning duty and baby duty that took away from expected time. Pretty disappointed at the moment.
  14. So here's the front and right side of the 1st floor. Still need to cut out the left side. I'm leaving extra for extra paper on the bevel. The rabbets have been messy due to dull blades. Got some new ones, but I miss my good tools at home (especially non slip ruler). I just dont have enough foam core to do a single piece for the left and back, so good thing I already have a piece for the back. You can see that the rounded room will stand.
