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.

This is looking quite awesome.  I agree with everyone else that you got excellent results with that roller. 


Thank you!

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.

May I squee too?  This is amazing!  Love it!

Experimenting with the Instant Mold and Green Stuff.

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.

      Here is the snake man warrior I finished a few weeks back.  I was having issues with the yellow belly since the paint was very chalky but I did what I could.  I am happy with the shading and tiny reflection on the gem on his bracer, it was my first time doing that, even though it's basically invisible from 3 feet away.  Let me know what you think!

      Enjoyed painting these but can't say I applied any great magic or too much time to them. They were all really quick to complete, working up from coloured primer with washes then bone or cream or pink for details.

      If I'm going to do a Bones IV figure, why not start with this big fella..
      Going to go for a classic Hooded Cobra look on the upper half and stone on the lower ..
      Will be using this picture for a reference..

      Since I'm terrible at remembering to take pictures, I've already done:
       - Brown Liner all over
       - Stone Wash on the lower half
       - Stormy Grey dry brush on the lower
       - Misty Grey dry brush on the lower
       - Sepia Liner on the top
       - Griffon Tan on the top
      The stonework looks decent for now,  but haven't tried for pseudo-realism on this scale before (pun definitely intended :D )

      The Bones Giant Cobra. I saw a lot of neat ones painted with stripes and different patterns but decided to go simple with mine. I did drybrush highlights with some bronze and copper to give him a little shimmer and he looks really good on the table. My players are worried because they fought a giant snake last session (I didn't have him painted) so they are worried there is another one coming. You never know!
