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.

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?

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

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.

      Today, I'm not feeling working on my main ReaperCon project for the diorama so I figured to stay productive and still do something I'll go ahead and start a WIP thread for some tabletop to tabletop+ painted figures of mounts and/or animal companions for the characters in my D&D game.
       
      First off I'm doing these three bones figures: animal companion brown bear (Jim), animal companion black panther (Alex), and Phantasmal blue panther mount (Bagheera). These are for the monk/ranger character in my D&D 'Broken Gods' game.

      I will use some green stuff to even out and blend into the bones broccoli bases, the bigger panther will get a green stuff made saddle and harness. 
       
      After I'm done with these three:
      I will paint up a golden lion (the companion to the panther figure from bones 3 I believe) Find a fox figure big enough to be a mount - will need to be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long. Acquire a nightmare figure for a mount or modify a horse or unicorn

      So as some of you may know I'm making a diorama! This will be slow going for a while as I get the materials and then it should be full steam ahead. I've started by procuring another copy of the "telephone box" since I don't really like the first one I did a few years ago. It's not awful but not up to my standard for a Christmas present.

      I've started working in earnest on my diorama entry for ReaperCon... Nothing like waiting till the last minute...
       

       
      First I figured out placement, then carved out the wall.
       

       
      And now I'm working on actually painting it up.
       

       
      I have no idea if I'm going to be able to pull off the OSL effect or not.

      Magically Distracted
       
      She sat on her favorite stool, having gotten mostly undressed and relaxed, gently swirling the goblet of red wine in her hand as she read through the grimore in her lap... closing her eyes she gently concentrated on the spell that was before her... suddenly the books piled around her lifted up in the air as if they had minds of their own and were caught in a small windstorm. She giggled to herself and took another long drink of the wine from her goblet and continued to study...
       
      ---------------------
       
      This was a really fun project that I started up in April of this year. My goal was to get her done in time for the 'eavier metal online contest (Facebook) and see if I could place or perhaps get a random draw. I ended up uploading her about 10 minutes late, so I have no idea at the time of doing this post if she will be considered in the contest or if she will be disqualified. Either way, I had fun, I had tons of amazing feedback during the WIP and a lot of people cheering me on to get it finished.
       
      I present to you "Magically Distracted" a NSFW Kingdom Death figure in the 54mm scale, she is a limited edition resin release. Please feel free to give your comments and critiques. I'm going to check and see if I am allowed to bring a nude figure to ReaperCon this year for entry into their painters contest or not. If not, she'll stay home as I do have plenty of other things to enter as well. A few firsts on this one, I did some elaborate tattoos, magical floating books, writing in books in freehand, a completely nude figure, texturing pattern, Venus dimples, and last but not least sheer stockings (which were a lot of fun and a lot of work!).
       
      First - pics that are SFW and then I'll post some NSFW links (special thanks to @Thrym for hooking me up with his site for hosting as Facebook links expire) and for helping me out with the really cool title placard).

      OK, so this is one of those "good enough!" moments and I am calling this done! This, actually being the stage for many of my firsts.. My first diorama for starters, my first attempt at making a wire-tree, the first time I used an airbrush and my first (albeit failed) entry to a competition. And it is the moment to call it quits, declare it finished and present to you for much desired C&C.
       

       
      Unfortunately my photography is still very much lacking :(
       

       

       

       

       
      Oh and the reason I couldn't make it to the competition is that I have to go on a business trip abroad on the very day that it will be held.. Oh well, there is always next year I guess..
       
      Thanks for looking.
