As the shipwreck golem is almost finished I thought I would move on to the brain.  It has quiet a footprint so I went with a large base with an apocalyptic feel so here's what I got so far.  Vinyl tile is wonderous for road sections

I hear it also has a warmer sound compared to digital. :poke:

 

That's a great idea.  Given how little would be needed for basing, I wonder what the easiest/cheapest method for obtaining some is outside of saving scraps from a kitchen or bathroom DIY remodel.

Ooo.  Great basing!  I could so use a look like THAT for some of my larger Fallout conversions.  :)  Okay, how did you get the cracked mud texture?  Is that some sort of crackle-paint trick, or some sort of drying/cracking gel mix?  I love the shattered pavement look, too!

You might be able to talk to your local store and see if they have offcuts and scraps. Since the big sheets run as low as $0.53/sq. ft. (from a national chain website), I suspect that if they do, you could get them cheap or free. Talk to the contractor desk.

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."

      Obviously, lycanthropy has spread too far...and this is a reminder that Reaper are from Texas, where armadillos are native and as I understand it, seen as pests. I would really like to know how the sales figures for this model compares to other lycanthropes.
