I'm covering this in my Lost World Project also.

However since this is basically a Terrain Piece/Diorama thingie, I decided to make a separate WIP as well.

So those who are only interested in terrain and such will also see it.


It all started when @knarthex his daughter Alsnia posted a pic of her Pet Snake.

Then @Pezler the Polychromatic made up a background story See my WIP page 65




@malefactushas always inspired me with his great terrain and he also encouraged me...

And I have also read the great threads of @Chris Palmer who made fantastic jungle statues.


So I knew I had to do this.


I bought a Toy Anaconda and a Toy Python.

The Anaconda will become Tanith.

The Serpent Goddess will be repainted in albino colours like Alsnia's pet, but it will also be part stone.

She is in stasis in a statue and now Alsnia the Priestess ( Bones Sarah the Seer) has been chanting and summoning until Tanith sheds her stone skin and breaks out of the statue.


The Python will be a gold or bronze statuette on the back of the wall.

I'm planning to put torches and sacrifices/gifts on the altar.

There will be two pipes coming from the backwall and snakes will pour from those and will be crawling all over the altar.


Here is what I've done so far.












Then I needed to carve out the shape of the Python to embedd it into the back wall later.

Too much gap will be filled with putty.

There will also be much stuff likes vines and leaves all over it.


So this may take a while.

After that I took two pieces of plumbing pipe I had and pushed those through the wall.

I then covered it all with Milliput.


Then I applied a Greenstuff World Rolling Pin with Aztec motives.

So I got glyphs and all on it.


After my first try I took pics and noticed that the glyphs were upside down and sideways...

So I quickly used a plain rolling pin ( again from Greenstuff World) to reflatten the milliput and applied the Aztec Rolling Pin once again.

This time in the right direction <_<

Then I drilled a few holes in the python and applied toothpicks to pin it with later.

Also I found some nice metal Lizardmen Head Ornaments.

These will be added too.

Drilled a hole in those too and used pieces of paperclip for pinning.


And some cute pics of Tanith who inspired this all...

I have permission to use Alsnia's name to be used as the priestess.

Since she dyes her hair in purple, the Priestess will also have purple hair.


I probably will also include some Maya/Inca/Aztec ok...Meso-American style Natives to assist and guard her.


The sacrifices and gifts will be placed on the altar, there will be baskets of fruit, gold, vases, skulls, weapons and stuff like that.

Look at the pics of Alsnia's pet, I will replicate that crown of flower.

Somewhere in the Lost World there will be a small cult who worship Tanith.

She who shall return to embrace all in her coils.

Peace and harmony she will bring.

Her enemies she will devour.

She will be recognized by her crown of flower.

I like where this is going.


I really like the texture you got on the backdrop with the rolling pin.

The Rolling Pin is from Greenstuff World, I also bought a flat one, and one with Greek and one with Egyptian motives.

You might want to check them, they also have Scifi and Wasteland stuff.

Could be useful for your Ork terrain too.

I have started on some serpents,

As I mentioned, the base will be crawling with snakes pouring from those pipes.


I need to sculpt most of them, and since I'm not good at heads yet, I used instant mold on some minis.

This way I can replicate a few heads, sculpt some bodies and hopefully create a few believable serpents.

Using a bag of skulls that @Erifnogard had sent me a while ago...


I embedded the golden/Bronze Python.


Any suggestions? Gold, Bronze maybe Patina.

      Anyone have any useful leads on a set of elves in tribal garb?  I'm specifically looking for elves that would fit in a jungle, tropic, or coastal setting.  Not looking for heavy armor.  If there's some gender diversity in the set that's even more ideal.

      I could kit bash if needed, but trying to avoid that.  Also looking for things that would fit well in scale with Reaper Bones' offerings.

      Have I made this easy enough for you all?

      This is a Photobackdrop Board I built for my Shifting Sands Project.
      I was inspired by the great backdrops @malefactus built, so I built one for my Jungle Project a few years ago, and now this one.
      It's a Temple of Apophis the Suneater.
      The Large Cobra is the Bones King Cobra SKU: 44103
      The statues, altar, braziers are all 3D printed files from Artisan Guild. on my Elegoo Mars
      The Treasures are a mix of Reaper Egyptian Treasure SKU: 03112  and some Resin treasures from Tabletopstudios/Minimonsters.
      The Temple is carved from AK Interactive Foam and the Glyphs are made with the Greenstuffworld Egyptian Rollerpin.
      Tufts from Vallejo.
      WIP HERE:
      Nobody in his right mind would build a Temple to honour the Suneater, the Destroyer, the Serpent God Apophis and yet...here it is.
      Many adventurers thought themselves to get rich upon finding the halfburied entrance, none returned.
      Guest appearances from some minis I painted for the project.

      Here is the giant cobra from Bones IV. For some reason I got hung up on this figure for a while - spent a lot of time not painting him.....

      Nagendra Warrior from Bones 2 (I think)
      Patterned after a Coral snake
      I'm really disappointed that the shading got washed out in the photo. Im a better painter than photographer I guess.
      Hope you enjoy it!
