This is so awsome!!

 

An idea for the walls, if you want more details:  some of the plaster on walls may haven falen off,and reveals the bricks/stones underneath.. to match the rusty railing.

Thanks!

 

I like the idea, but probably too late to do now with that red oxide paste already in place. I would've had to have planned that before putting the paste on.

Milliput to make the stone flooring. Attached upper balcony railing and added some sconces (they were bits of from the jewelry section at Michael's IIRC).

I'm still working on the railing going down the steps, it's rather difficult to get just right. I also want to wait to attach the columns until after I've painted the wall and doors because it'd be a PITA to paint them with the columns in the way. Probably paint the columns before attaching as well now that I think about it.

The sconces really adds some life to the scene. And I like the stone work with different sizes and shapes.

 

you could maybe only do half the railing on the stairs, as the rest could have fallen off.. depending om how trashy you want the place to be.

Thank you ::):

 

I have the railing almost ready to go. Need to allow this milliput to cure tonight and then I'll show the railing I'm going with. It uses a large creature's skull and I used copper wire to be able to bend into shape where it looks good as a hand rail.

Perhaps it's late to ask this -- but why does the Lair of Evil have a railing?  Cackling Overlords of Doom are not known for their compliance with workplace safety regulations.

It wasn't always The Keeper's home. It used to be an opulent home of a rich Baron. It's now fallen into disrepair and vile acts of evil.

Added the railing with a bannister made from a cyclops skull and then brass etch bent to make a holder to the wall on balcony and give more realism. I also use Green Liner on the Frog Demon as a primer/base coat.

I think all I need to do now is add the chain/hook from the balcony and then smooth out the sides/edges of the pink foam with some paste. Then I'll be ready to prime it all and start painting the base and figures.

The copper wire for the banister is a brilliant idea. And  cyclops skull is an awesome touch.::D:

Thank you on both accounts!

 

I had to add a bit of my skullz fetish right?? BWHAHAHAHAH! 

 

Really, I like to keep things themed and add some cool little decorative elements whenever I can.  That copper wire wasn't easy to bend just right to get it where I wanted for the railing, took me 2 days of tinkering with wires to get it to look like like that. Now I gotta get that chain/hook hanging from the railing above and see what everyone thinks about it. I'll do a mock-up first in a few minutes as soon as I find that chain I'm thinking about.

Chain/hook found and added in this mock-up.

What do you all think?

 

Yay or Nay?

Chain hook works but I think the stair railing could use a couple of supports.

Thanks!

 

Hmm, I wanted to keep it as open as possible and attaching anything now could be nigh impossible without destroying what I've already done and have glued down.

      Finally finished this demon chick (Reaper 77281) to decent tabletop stadard.  She had been sitting on my bench half painted a long time. Her face had a flash line on one side, so I tried to make it look like a fresh wound.

      Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer" 
       
      I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such as Frazetta and Patrick J. Jones.
       
      Right now I'm cleaning off the flash and mold lines, as soon as I do that, I'll wash everything and start to assemble as much as I can without causing issues during painting.

      This one is cool, IMO. Ever wished that Shadow Demon came in a different color than Purple? 

      Once again, presenting my experiments with translucent Bones and Tamiya Clears. 

      Warning Pic Heavy
      First off, an untouched Shadow Demon:


      With Tamiya Clear Gloss:


      Untouched next to the one with the clear gloss:


      Tamiya Clear Red:


      Tamiya Clear Orange:


      Tamiya Clear Yellow:


      Tamiya Clear Green:


      Tamiya Clear Blue:

       
      Tamiya Clear Smoke:


      All of them, in all their glory:


      As you can see, the Tamiya clears can actually change the color while maintaining the translucency on the smaller and thinner parts.  The only one that doesn't do this to the same degree as the others is the Smoke.

      Hope people find this useful.

      C&C and advice always welcome. Started working on this awesome tiefling/demon. Cleaned off mold lines, except the one on his outstretched arm and hand. The file wouldn't cooperate. Working on his face/head and just wanted to show some pictures. Yesterday, I was frustrated with the mouth, still am.
      Paints I used for the skin:
      29843: HD Solid Black 
      09427: Nut Brown
      09401: Dragon Red
      09404: Cinnamon Red
       
      Did this in layers
      Shadow = Solid Black : Nut Brown (1:3)
      Nutbrown
      Nutbrown : Dragon Red (1:1)
      Dragon Red
      Dragon Red : Cinnamon Red (1:1)
      Cinnamon Red
       
      Spent 4 hours on the skin and face. I'm happy with where he's going at the moment. Tiefling art online for clothes has been rather uninspiring. So many browns, muted tones, or drab colors.
