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! :)

      Is this encounter a matter of survival or planned by the sorceress.  Her story either way seems... fishy. 
       
      First attempt at a large resin Diorama. 
      It needs the resin sides sanded/buffed with a mechanical sander.  By hand the resin just turns cloudy, so ill will leave it this way until I have access to the proper tool.
      a few additional refinements should be done before I enter it into competition 
      - more work on wave/ripple patterns.
      - change color / wetness of raft. 
      -paint base black. 
       
      I am happy with it as a display piece,  I just need to keep the dust off, a the wave surface will be a headache to clean.

      The flickering glow of the torchlight illuminates the dusty, hieroglyphic-covered walls of the forgotten tomb.  Moonglow clings to his hat as he carefully scans for signs of the hidden entrance.  A small indentation betrays the location of a door in the stone wall.  Carefully, the adventurer pushes his way through.
       
      The room is barren and dark, except for a single pillar of light shining down upon a small pedestal.  On top sits a small box.
       
      Moonglow carefully crosses the chamber and approaches the box.  He lifts the lid and peers inside.
       
      "Ah, there's my old minis!"
       
      Who's Your Mummy?
       
      Today I felt like sharing some more of my older work that hasn't been posted on the forums yet.  This time it's the Bones mummies that are getting the spotlight.

       
      These mummies were one of my first large painting projects.  It seemed impressive at the time to be working on 8 things simultaneously.  They're a bit dusty from all the drybrushing, but I think they look the part, and I'm a fan of the red-gold color scheme I settled on.
       
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
       
      These were a fun little set and were perfect adversaries when my players visited the City of Time and sought to stop a Lich's return to power.  After failing once an resetting the clock, they had to fight their way through a mummy-filled temple complete with crawling claws and sand-filling rooms to stop the Mummy Lord from returning to his former Lich status.
       
      What's your favorite mummy encounter?

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      So! I'm back. I haven't finished any of my other WIPs lately but I figure one more won't hurt. 
       
      I'm planning on doing a film noir style desert expedition whereupon our investigators find something not of this world. 
       
      I'm really excited for this one(not that I'm not excited for all my projects) but I have some hurdles to cross. 
       
      I want a wall between the white and grey bones, preferably crumbly looking. Not sure where to start with that.  Figure out the best way to magnetize things. And the really big one: figure out how to actually paint in the style I'm trying to do.   
      This will involve a lot of work and time. As well as some (maybe a lot of) practice minis. 
       
      I'm currently in the mock up stage. I've got the minis I want and I'm trying to stage them how I think will look good as well as imagine the wall where I want it.
      First stages of mock up.

      Dan's Build Journal #4
      The Ranger's Camp
       
       
      Finished Project Pics:
       
         My Other Build Journals:
       
      Well its been almost two weeks since I finished my last project, and that itch start a new build has flared up again.   This time I am going to attempt some type of Ranger/Woodsman's Camp, which compared to my last couple of projects should be quite a straight forward and relatively simple build.
       
      Laying the Foundation.
      To build the foundation of this project, I cut out a piece of XPS foam to serve as the base and then used blocks of polystyrene which I'd cut with a hot wire tool to form the very basic shape and contours of the landscape.  I want give to the illusion that the camp is quite secluded and well hidden and so it is going to be set up in a small clearing at the base of a wooded hill.  I'm going to build the hill so that it sweeps around the camp, shielding it from three sides.
       
      During my recent Ruined Keep build, I'd started working on an LED campfire, but got cold feet and ended up abandoning the idea scared that I'd mess up and spoil the project.  This time I am going to go for it.  I removed the outer casing from a cheap flickering LED tealight, cut a small hole in the XPS foam base, and then hot glued the tealight into the hole so that only the LED was protruding above the surface.   I'll come back to this at a later stage.
       
       
       
      The next stage was to get nice and messy with some Sculptamold, which I used to reshape the contours of the hill into something a little more organic and natural looking.  I also added several plaster of paris rocks that I had left over from a previous project to add a bit of visual interest.  The rocks were originally created using Woodland Scenic's Rock Moulds.
       

       
      The Sculptamold is applied quite thickly in places, and so it may need an extra day to fully dry.  In the mean time I have a bunch of accessories to paint up and prepare, including a woodsman's lean-to, a roasting spit and a sitting log which I will likely start work on over the weekend.
