  1. 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.
  2. I've tried painting POLICE BOX on my TARDIS, and it has not gone well. Any suggestions? Is it worth even trying to paint it, or should I just print out some labels? Has anyone made labels that I could steal? Thanks!
  3. Although the first figures I started painting out of my Bones box were the frogmen*, the one piece that actually got closest to being called "finished" first ended up being this "Telephone Box" (#80037). The labels are printed, and, alas, I miscalculated by a couple of millimeters or more in just about every dimension (either that, or I goofed up in my printer settings), so I will likely have to go back and try again with SMALLER labels before I can respectably put this on a table top for a game scenario. (I'm thinking of using it for a cameo in a wacky "Government Agents in Black" scenario, featuring the Little Grey Men from the sci-fi expansion set as the adversaries.) Basic paint job is just sky blue with a deep blue wash applied, then painting the top light white, then again yellow, with fine black lines painted on it for the supporting braces. In retrospect, I think the box probably looked better when I originally painted the windows BLACK rather than attempting to paint the panels grey/white. The piece has a "footprint" of about 1" x 1", and the model appears to be made of the same plastic as the new Bones figures in general. There is some slight warping to the plastic evident near the roof (this can be seen in the sagging curvature of the roof details on the left side of the model), but by and large it's very slight and easily overlooked. I'm not sure what all is different, but I really like the new Bones plastic, as it seems to be much better with sharp and shallow details, and it feels more solid. (There are still some occasional bendy issues with thin things such as spears and blades, and with the sci-fi "starship door" piece, but soaking in hot water appears to still be the best remedy. Overall, it's quite the improvement, I think.) Although this particular paint scheme would seem to be the "obvious" use for this model, I think (depending upon the price) I might get a few more for use in steampunk games. Thanks to Wikipedia, I find that this particular design dates back to 1929 or so, so it would be anachronistic to use for a Victorian-era game ... but in steampunk, a certain amount of anachronism is par for the course, so I could probably get away with it. ;) I think I might paint one RED as a street decoration, so it's not immediately the subject of Tardis jokes from players ("I want to see if it's bigger on the inside than out!"), but I could also see painting it up in stained-wood brown and using it as a deck feature on a pirate-ship-to-airship conversion. Another possibility I see is that the inset panels could be painted as if they were window panes (making this look a little more like a conventional telephone booth), or "glowing" panels (for general steampunkery). But I simply couldn't help but go with the OBVIOUS use first. ;)
  4. First, Gauntfield: Rotpatch: Family out trick or treating. I think I might have to get enough of these for an army... A lovely couple out for Halloween. The smaller figure is from the Wizards of the Coast Ravenloft board game. Strahd from the same board game. I don't really like this version of Strahd. Hag from the same: Graveyard Spirit from Malifaux, alternate coloration. Painted this one at the paint and take at Origins. Haven't fixed it up since getting home. The primer was a bit grainy. Happy Halloween!
  5. https://www.flickr.com/photos/xenomurphy/16424818798/?rb=1 A TARDIS interior made of Lego, all used straight as-is, so far as I understand it. Nicely done.
  6. So which of these blue spray paints would you use on a rather large Tardis model? http://www.liquitex.com/us/shop/paints/professional/spray-paint/36093/
  7. Hello everybody! I am enjoying so much this little project (triggered by Jasper's SciFi Challenge!) that I decided it would be better to make it a spin-off thread of my main compiled WIP thread. Instead of talking a lot, I will take you through the pictures. First, I had an idea. Doing a round-base diorama, with the TARDIS center, the Doctor and Amy Pong (two minis I have from Heresy Minis) on opposite sides, like covering each other backs, defending the TARDIS. Some more details are planned, but you will learn about the later. So the most challenging part, building a somewhat accurate TARDIS. First, some research and sketches: Then, refining the sketches comparing sizes and overall scale with the minis: V1 was more accurate to the real thing, but too "thin" for mini scale. So I beefed it up and chose better measures, in line with my materials. V2 was the definite plan. The whole family helped out in the cutting and shaping of the TARDIS yesterday. Base and square "plates" are cardboard, side and other details will be plasticard, and corner posts are pine square stick (for arquitectural models). Sides were first cut in with the Dremel, the polished up with the xacto knife: Lower squares were covered with thin cardboard (like from cardboard bases): I had stripped up an old computer, and had some leds, switches... so with the help of the innards of a small, toy flashlight, I wanted to make it light up. Adapting one led for the roof beacon: More details, plus using electric wire copper cut to size and a LOT of patience for the window frames: A pic I snapped to remember how the cables were connected. I had to remember my old electronics classes until I got two leds working out of the same switch. The LED depicted is a white led going inside the TARDIS to light up the windows. The switch is going to the base, and I used foam carved out to house the wiring and batteries. To allow for easy removal of the piece, I adapted a connector. To help reflect light back, the inside faces were covered in aluminium foil. The inclined roof was a challenge, all four little triangles cut up and glued. So lacking the Police sign and putty to fill in the seams and polish it up, here it is! The wires that pluck into the connector: Sitting on the base: And switch on: Hope you like it so far! C&C welcome. PS: Oh, I am also playing with plaster, got some dental grade one, and prepared the actual top layer of the base:
  8. Heresy Miniatures Nerdlord II and Emily Lake, on a styrofoam/cork/plaster base. Scratchbuilt TARDIS (not as clean as I would've liked, but the camera is a harsh mistress). C&C welcomed and appreciated.
  9. Just got home from Christmas with the fiancee's family. Her sister hooked me up with the T.A.R.D.I.S. https://plus.google.com/u/0/108048511179156444489/posts/SX3Y6YjTAve That's right, it lights up and plays the sound. It's a 4-Port USB 2.0. http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/9223/?cj=true&cpg=cj&ref&CJURL&CJID=1909525 BOOYAH! What interesting NERD Gift did you get?
