Bwahaha! Me too, Vik, me too

I've got some more railings done and put some posts for advertising/the establishment's name banner thing whatsit. Still need a ladder and some other gubbins but I'm getting closer.

So got some more done. I'm thinking of calling it a Taco Mars or something. Will probably just paint that on. Normally I'd do something on the PC and print it out so I guess free hand will be 'stepping out of my comfort zone'.

I used up half of the holes in the roof but 4 remain. I've got 6 total pods cut, need tentacles on 5 yet.

Getting close to ready for paint.

Oooh nice stuff

Bit of progress, down to painting and fixins:



Seed pod things need dipped, and I need to make kind of an interior to set in place under the building. Got a lot of tagging and posters to do, as well as the main signs.

So I didn't realize you could be bad at stencils... I'm gonna say it was the lack of professional pride of the owner, wouldn't pay a professional.

Back is the same. Time for some tagging and posters.

Guide lines and measuring the maximum space for letters are important even for stencils.

But an excuse, such as shoddy workmanship in the universe, also works. Make it a feature and add some other "mistakes" to sell that angle (paint runs/spills, etc.)

I see purple tentacles... woo!

I should have also painted the sign before I added it to the building, that would have allowed for greater consistency too. Ahh well, jump in headfirst and fix it on the next one

So my lovelies, with one week to go, a wee reminder from the rules on your entry pics:

"7: Final Entry: Six or more photos of your final entry, showing top, front, both sides, back and all the important parts - not to be posted in this thread. PM me with links to your galleries, albums, etc. As I said above, please take the time to take the best photos that you can.
Together with your photos, I would like a statement of the items (a photo would be ideal) that you used. This is not a must, but would be helpful.

Feel free to include some fluff or an explanation of the model/setting to allow the rest of us to fully appreciate your work."

The end is in sight team! Get rivetting extraordinarily!

Whew. It's able to be entered now but there's a *lot* of finish work that could be done. We'll see how much time I can squeeze into it before the deadline.

Mines in now. Over to the judges for me. Great to see some work around here, all looking fantastic.

You got a whole week yet, I could build two more in that time!!

Did a couple of pieces of graffiti and added signs/ads/posters. I need to get some new signs/ads/posters/etc. I guess for my next scifi building.

Not necessarily done here, the signs need weathered and the top of the building looks awful lonely. Not sure I have time to make some scratchbuilt scatter to go up top, but I'm sure I can come up with some kind of crates and barrels. Since the rest of it is scratch built entirely though, I think I'd prefer to not add anything prefab.


Bit of tagging. I would like to do some more of this so I can get better at it. Also a GCPS recruitment banner (they're *all* over the place in this town...) and some wanted posters.


Some warnings/advisements and some more tagging.


If business wasn't bad enough before they tacked the dead body warning sign right on the front door...

Seed pods are also drying and will be sorted out tomorrow. I'd like to weather the paper add-ons and find some scattered bits to spruce up the top before submitting.

That is looking fabulous Grim. Great work. Now what the rest of you got, give Grim a run for his money.

Giggle. I've seen what you have in the wings Cam. Its no contest. In fact I'm gonna go ogle the pictures some more.

Nice work, Grim'.
A couple of things to potentially help;
The posters and graffiti now make the Taco Mars sign look a bit pale in comparison, maybe could do with a bit more on the red/orange to make it brighter.

And maybe some other smaller tags to add to the graffiti-ness.

Good job Cam'. I've seen in the gallery and I can't see anything to add as yet.

Hi guys. Floor coming along:

It's a 3x5 room with obstructions in the form of stair column and trap door.

Need thoughts from you wonderful dakkanauts about the floor though:
A - cool enough?
B - do I need to reinforce floor with a frame beneath? (the mesh will be glued to the underside of a plasticard frame to signify the edge of the board as on real Space Hulk tile pieces) If so, how?
C - (kind of linked to B) any ideas how best to highlight the squares that make up the playing spaces? Paint will look artificial, but am getting caught up on this element. The finished piece was meant to be suitable for use in game so you have to know where to put your pieces.

Cut out the grid you require, glue it with superglue and bi-carb. to the mesh, this will give you a nice rusty effect as well. Then create a sandwich with a base.

Cam has the idea! Kinda like making tiles...it also will make working with the mesh easier as the bigger the piece of mesh, the more rodeo you will need to master...

Oh. And to A : probably...to B if you can, read time permits and materials flat enough are handy...
