Oh my, how forward of you! Isn't there some kind of 3-date limit before you can ask to see one's tentacles?

My other August project is winding down so I should have the remainder of the competition window to whip up something. I'm just not sure if I want alien, disgusting, disgusting alien, cthulian, ilithid-like, or what... And exactly what kind of trap door to have them hiding behind either...

It's getting most of my attention from tonight on though, just as soon as I get these minis on their bases.

I removed my silly question as this is a contest, and I figured out it does work. So yeah, here is a small WIP.

It's actually farther along than it looks but, I got the basework done in about 30-60 minutes. Super excited for this project.

made the second floor...the idea behind the build is it is a wrecked and scorched place... s not much left to be seen here upwards the ground floor...






well... as stated above...next step is getting the wood grain worked out again by drybrushing the heck out f everything and then painting the destruction...^^

The white foam will be cliffs eventually, the cork is the ground. I know cork is usually used for rocks but, I'm going to end up covering it in soil, so I am using this to build flat surfaces/height and depth. Furthermore, overhangs and erosion as you would see in a remote mountainous area. I'm having a point of contention, as I am thinking of putting a canopy over this coming from the sides. But it still has to be playable. I am trying to go for the look that the piece ends at the edge of the base but, with it still looking like it belongs on a board.

I still have to add the small power station with the vault door, vents, fauna, vines, erosion, sand, and a metro tunnel at the end of the road. Plus a magnet for the removable figure that is going on the road. I want this piece to be like where I live but, even higher in elevation then I am here. IE: It is summer/fall and the leaves are still on the trees but, slush and snow happens in the night.

I am going to be doing some AoS terrain later though, maybe a vignette showing the reforging process.

Edit; I greenstuffed some new arms on the figure of this piece.

An Earth Force Miniatures Valkyrie is the miniature.

Spoiler:


Ewh, auto append. Not much to post but, I'm trying out the eroding cliffs, I need to do those before the trees, fauna and overgrowth. They're cut up cork panels held together by wires, the wires covered by ivy and dirt.

Eventually I think I will have air between them and make roots out of the wires in some places. I also added a tunnel I need to bulk up and put the figure there to show scale. So much to do but, I've got the time.

Ok, gonna be a bit smaller of a piece and pretty simple... but I think I'll have managed to work in both a trap door (of sorts) and some tentacles before it's over.


Basic rough idea. The frame is 2.5 parts thin cardboardy type stuff (like sandwiched cereal box cardboard or something... I can't find the stuff searching online but I appropriated a fair stock of it at Hobby Lobby on clearance) and 2.5 parts computer power supply case. I was going to use the whole case but I cracked it in half to clean the dust and decided I'd rather have both halves to make two buildings The card was the logical progression to fill in the gaps.

Could have used the sale-sign budget plasticard I keep stocked, but the cardboard stuff is a bit stiffer and doesn't warp as readily when treated with hot-glue.

Traced a base and carved the hole out, leaving it just a bit shy of the lower diameter so I could set the base into the hole upside down and expect it to stay. I'll probably add a washer or some pennies to counterweight it more readily in place for play. I liked the texture on the underside of the base, figured it would give me something to drybrush in a pinch, or potentially add more details to if time permits.

I'm going to install the whole thing onto a base of that same thin cardboard, but only after populating the inside.


I'm thinking this is a building on either a colony world, or possibly inside of a vast spaceship, the kind that have cities in them. Specifically Infinity Nomads stuff, but it will be generic enough to use for whatever. Inside will be seed-pods/spawn-embryos/developing plant monsters. I'm not exactly sure what I want to do with them just yet, but bet that hot glue will be involved. Probably some hot glue n' wire tentacles, and other hot glue for gross alien fluids and or slime I'll probably secure several pods to the walls and have a nest or two of them on the base. I'll probably permanently assemble the building with the base. The interior is meant to be more of a gotcha! or a 'burn it to death' kind of objective, rather than a playable space.

You can see the frame for the door. I may just paint the door on, painted right it will look just as good as a couple of pieces of plasticard stuffed into the space, but we'll see. I'm going to make a control panel but it will be smashed/blasted as the aliens didn't want their spawning soldiers discovered.

Probably some gubbins and or details added to the other sides of the building to give it some kind of sense of purpose. If nothing else, lots of scifi posters, adds, flyers, and graffiti.

Totally forgot about the accessibility and safety stuff. Will be a ladder up at least one side (not that you need them in most games, but for aesthetics) and some kind of railing around the top. Holes on top will be used to secure the railing or filled in. I'll probably do a bent hardware cloth style ladder as that's more scratch-buildy, even though I have a couple dozen deadzone ladders that would serve just fine May try to use some sprue for the railings up top, usually I use hardware cloth for those too but it would be harder to secure it to the metal roof.

TLDR: There will be alien pod people inside the building and lots of graffiti/posters before it's done. Oh, a ladder and some railing up top too.

Good to see some more progress.

Vik; nice woodwork. One thing, if you are going for sun-bleached wood (as the grey-ness seems to imply) take note of where the shadows would be and make the wood wood-coloured where the sun can't reach, fading to grey where the shadow ends. A wash of brown should do the trick for a start.

Stormwall; looks to be a nice layout. Think about hiding the "ball" nature of the expanded PS. A layer of tissue/PVA, "sand", or polyfiller-alike would work. Keep it a thin layer and you keep the random shape of the PS, but hide the balls.

GrimDork; Nice use of the power-supply box. Don't hide the shapes on the top too well, make use of them. Looking forward to tentacles.

Tentacles!

In progress, at least. Putting a railing up on the top level too but it's nothing fancy. Only getting 15-30 minutes a day to play with this stuff so it's slow going.
