I'd go 3 high Grim. Realism is the key.

I finally started on my piece:
So I got fed up of getting nowhere near starting with my Space Hulk room
Need to timetable the project so I know my progress

Not where I should be

@ Vik, That is looking fantastic bud, amazing start.

@ Grim, I would go 3 high, that way you add details, like Doc said, also if you later add furniture yor wardrobes will look funny sticking up above the walls if they are too low.

@ DM Fantastic, I was getting worried, but you got going, and thats it you will have it done by Monday now....

@Can - thanks man. I wasn't sure I was ever going to get started. And I WILL finish. Maybe not by Monday though

I've got the stuff in the workroom now... just need to dig up some graph paper or something so I can rough out the disposition of rooms.

I guess there's probably some kind of web app that would present a grid.. hardly worth digging up the graph paper it could be three rows in to the stacked pile of doom...

Bah. My inspiration well has dried up. The tiny baby has become more maintenance-heavy and I keep vacillating between 2.5d and 3d dungeon scenery. I'm not necessarily giving up, but I'm less confident I'll get anything done. Since the whole point of these is to at least somewhat push yourself to new modeling heights, bashing out something junky just to 'get done' seems kind of pointless

Grim, you could always try and get as much done as possible, and then if you have a few in backlog to make a project of it like I am doing? Sure you won't be judged but, at least you get some sick works done.

Yeah, if I have a good terrain Idea I'll start working on it. I'm just stuck between the functionality of 2.5d dungeon scenery and the photographic benefits of fully 3d terrain.

(Very) late, but better than never!

Would these count as trapdoors?



If allowed, might get them done in time, too

Thoughts and comments are welcome.

I have a dream, a dream to finish a project. The good and bad news is that I don't start work until the 1st so... that's a lot of days off. Which hypothetically would allow me to catch up.

Maybe. Still tentative but, excited nonetheless. I'll post a wip today or tomorrow.

We'll cross that when we get there, I am excited for this one. I know a SWM order can't get in here in time so I'll see what I can do about making slush.

The groundwork will be semi-easy though.

Gonna have to drop out, so to speak. I had started, but I have taken on some extra painting work for a friend, and the deadline is the same day as this ends.

Next time! And at least I have the start of something fun to return to.

Good to see some things happening.

To anyone just finding this, or thinking that there is no enough time to complete something; it doesn't have to be a large building, you can make a small diorama, or objective marker.

It only has to include a trapdoor (and fit the other criteria in the OP). You could do a piece of ground, a trapdoor and someone crawling away from some tentacles that are clearly going to drag him/her back into the trapdoor.

You can still put a great deal of "story" into a small base.
And you could always extend it, or fit it into a larger piece of terrain later.



I'll be disappointed if someone doesn't have tentacles coming out of a trapdoor. Where's Monkeytroll when you need him, He'd have tentacles.

Aww crap. I was gonna bow out and then Dr. H had to complain about a distinct lack of tentacles coming out of the current crop of trap doors...

I guess don't count me out just yet, if you guys don't think I'll be insulting the spirit of the competition by bashing something relatively quick and dirty out within the limited remaining time, I won't give up till the last day

I am going to post a wip real soon, doing a march with my cousin this weekend but, no reason not to get the basework done.

I need to figure out how to suspend cork with wires somehow to make it look like the cliff is eroding and waste a ton of time with plants. I'm super bummed I can't really convey what I wanted to though, as I am lacking soft snow flakes. I guess I could find some tutorial on bicarbonate or baking soda... then cover that later with the real deal? I'm trying to make slush. I have realistic water but, as I said no flock.
