SPACE DRAGON'S ADVENTURE - ReaperCon 2015 Team Diorama

Recommended Posts

Uhm... my question is just the opposite... are you sure the base is going to be big enough?

 

You think, it might be too small?

 

Maybe need to go to about 12 inches in length from portal to wall with obelisk/statues?

you need to get representative figs and lay it out before deciding on the base.   That way you can judge depths of view and perspective much better.

 

This is going to be quite a challenge and I am only sorry I can't go to reapercon to see it in person.

Yeah, that's true. I'll have to get measurements for everything more precisely. Which means that it'll be drawn out. 

 

Does anyone have the Reaper Sphinx by chance? Need to know how large he will be from head to tail.

 

 

Hmm...so we might need to hold off on deciding what base materials/size to have until I get the figures finished up and sent to ub3r?

 

 

Take measurements for me with the statues (Anubis & Sobek) at their widest and the priestess at her widest.

I have these 36" x 24" (1" x 1") sheets of grid paper that I used to use for dungeon mapping. I'm going grab a sheet this weekend and draw it out to scale to make sure. I think that the Sphinx (looking at pics on Reaper store) is about 2 inches long.

Priestess base is 2 cm long and 1 cm at its widest point

 

both the Sobek and the Anubis statues have the same size base, which looks to be 3 1/2 cm long and 1 1/2 cm wide

 

jackal statue is 4 1/2cm long by 1 1/2 wide

 

 

Cat statue is almost 3cm long by 1 1/2 wide

Gotta convert in my head here since I've been dealing with inches lol.

 

So the dragon looks to be about 3 - 3.5 inches in length, we'll want probably 2-3 inches from him to the priestess, then priestess is an inch, then behind her is the sphinx which is about 2 - 2.5 inches in length, then we have the obelisk behind him which is about 2.5 inches wide w/o a bigger base at the bottom, but if we put it up a little bit with the bigger base it's going to be 3 inches wide.

 

Going with longest estimate: 3.5 + 3 + 1 + 2.5 + 3 + (1 inch for walls) = 14 inches

 

Sound about right?

 

---------------------

 

Those statues are looking really great Siri!

Cat statue is almost 3cm long by 1 1/2 wide ( 1 1/4 inches or 2 inches)

Based on Siri's numbers and yours (see in red above) I think a 12 inch would be good enough as each of the measurements were rounded up and thus inlcudes some gaps between figs.  This might be easier to find a base in as well.

@robinh

 

Obelisk I have is 60mm so that's over 2 inches, but if we put on a bit of a base I'm thinking 3 inches wide from wall. And walls thickness adds 1 inch as they will be on top of the floor.

 

@kharsin - glad you like it! :)

      Yes, a 2020 ReaperCon WIP! And a massive undertaking at that. I'm trying very hard not to nerd out and put this whole project into, er, Project. There's just so many pieces to keep track of, that maybe I'll just use this first post to keep track of things.
       
      Some background stuff, starting with a quote from the "Paint a giant robot! Group WIP" where I wrote some of what's planned:
       
      You can read the rest of that post here: Paint a giant robot post and a second one to see where I'm going with this: PLA print post in same topic
       
      Biggest takeaway is that, while useful, my PLA printer can only do so much. I have a resin printer backed on Kickstarter, but considering it's now 3 years late, I don't think I should hold my breath on it ever showing up. Especially when I can get a new Elegoo Mars resin printer with more capability for relatively cheap (<$300). The PLA machine was bought with both hobby and household goals in mind, and it's served well. But the resolution just ain't there! More on that down the posts.
       
      I also had the chance to gain some experience on  paper plants at ReaperCon (Main post for that in the Terrain section post here: Vellum Paper Plants - Alien Jungle (WIP)
       
      Basically, I have the scrap booking machine to make my own alien plants:
       
      Which now leads me to this WIP. This is going to tie all those pieces together. The robot WIP will still be to get a good camo scheme, but that print job is not going to be used for the final diorama. Instead, that will be the resin printer's job. So, let's break down the WIP work that I can see so far, and will be edited later to add things and mark completions.
       
      Tasks to be completed:
       
      Figures Needed
      Wight (being pulled down backwards, caught by hidden lines) Gremlin Unit 01 (stole a supply crate and ran; actually just bait to get the larger CAV to follow) Gremlin Units 02 and 03 (trip line pair, successfully snagging Wight across the chest) Gremlin Units 04 and 05 (trip line pair, successful across another part of the chest) Gremlin Unit 06 (burner unit, cut Wight's left gun in two) Gremlin Units 07 and 08 (trap door unit, hiding entrance to jungle path with camo doors strapped to them) Gremlin Units 09 and 10 (trip line pair, successful across right thigh) Gremlin Units 11 and 12 (trip line pair, broken cable across chest, possibly falling over from sudden jolt) Gremlin Unit 13 (ECM unit, some large radar dish looking thing) Gremlin Units 14, 15 and 16 (cargo units, loaded up with stolen supplies and headed out) Gremlin Units 17, 18, 19, and 20 (gun units) Gremlin Units 21, 22, and 23 (missile units) Gremlin Unit 24 (large gun unit) Gremlin Unit 25 and 26 (junked units; scavenged for parts?) Gremlin Unit 27 (2nd style missile unit) Gremlin Unit 28 (personnel carrier unit)  
      Wight Conversion
      Right Leg: cut from pelvis; reposition Feet: cut off both feet and swap positions since the tread is only on one foot Base: cut away from right foot, possibly keeping full base around left foot Left arm (maybe): cut gun into two pieces, having one falling to the ground after being cut by a heat lance/chainsaw rope  
      Details to be included
      Camo doors at front leaving marks on the dirt path, but hiding the ambush from the main trail Pieces of old broken larger CAV units around Wight gun cut in two, maybe showing inner details. May have to 3D print an add-on piece Dust being kicked up by the stolen crate (going to try using dyed cotton) IN WORK One cable snapping dynamically, with several bends and twists (superglue on thread?) Multiple vehicle tracks around camp Campfire and tents for people A latrine Other camp details (laundry, chairs, sports equipment, bored carvings, etc)  
      Jungle Plants (V=Vellum cuts, B=bought, S=Sculpted, F=Found, P=Printed)
      Large lotus flower like plants, but dry land and maybe odd colors with a large conifer cone growing from the middle (V) Jester hat plant (balls on stems around a central point) (V) COMPLETED Spiky yucca like plant (V) Jagged leaf plant (V) Tentacle plant (V) Tripod trees (three spoke trunks) (V) Large palm fronds (S) Coral like trees (P) Horn tree (lots of horn shaped leaves from a central trunk) (P, V) Ball vine (like ivy but with odd leaf shapes) (V) Cabbage-like jungle plants with large wrinkled leaves (V) Fuzzy vines (thin wire coated with static grass) (S) Anything I can buy from N/HO scale train setups and painted alien-ish (B) Reaper figures that can be clipped and painted to be plants (B) Odd trees with strange leaf shapes (onion shaped) (V) IN WORK Random grass-like jungle plants (V) IN WORK Stem ends from mandarin oranges (seriously, pull one off and look at it, stem towards the ground) (F) Anything and everything else (VBSFP)  
      Base mounting system
      Design and print modular tiles with bristles on top (basically, Bristle Block toys) Allows mounting of all the above jungle plants Fill in around plants with thinned plaster via a syringe to create the ground surfaces

      I'll need a Pegasus soon for one of the PCs in the D&D 5e campaign I run for my son and his high school friends.
       
      The metal Reaper one is lovely, but IMO, too fragile for use with a bunch of rambunctious teens. I was looking around for some options when I saw the Bones Sphinx, and figured her wings would "bolt" onto Silverhorn the Unicorn fairly easily.

       
      So here is my attempt to create my own Bones Pegasus, since I can't wait for Bones 5 to deliver me one:

       
      I cut off Silverhorn's horn (and set it aside for later), and drilled two holes in the shoulders.  I took the Sphinx's wings, and cut off the tabs, then shaped them best I could to fit the shoulder profiles of Silverhorn, before drilling a hole to pin them with.

       
      Next up is glue and green stuff.
       
      I have a feeling he's going to droop over time. Not sure if I'm going to attempt to pin his back legs(s), but at a minimum, I'll probably glue him to a 50mm base to keep him upright, even if he droops.

      Couple reaper samurai I used for a commissioned diorama.  Rock is pine bark, tree is a wire armiture covered with plumber's epoxy putty and paper towel and super glue (for the skinnier parts), foliage is bleached, dyed, and preserved reindeer moss.

      Whew, this one took a bit. I named it "The Getaway". Enjoy.

      So, a local store had a painting contest - entrants drew a random number from a jar, and that number equated to a Reaper Bones mini we had two weeks to paint and got to keep. I was remarkably lucky, and got the Dracolisk, by the incomparable Julie Guthrie. Since the rules said no more than 75% of the model could be obscured, I felt somewhat open ground with some stumps and some broken statues would be best.
       
      There will be two prizes - one from customer voting, and one from Staff Judging. Wish me luck!
