@ Vik, thank you sir, gas mask are from a clear plastic tube heated the end and inserted tweezers to shape in to mask shape. And as to AVP see below, still very WIP but getting there, lot of clean up top do once I see them up close on screen.

These guys are supposed to be stalkers or baby aliens, they arte very close to done, not a lot you can do with them.



Then there are these guys, still lots to do on these.

Those alien babies fit right into the lab, but I have to say your predators are great. You really captured the feel of them, and your osl is perfect sometimes I think people go a bit overboard but this looks the way it did in the movie.

Love how this build is going Cam! You've got me convinced to try OSL myself on my current project. Fantastic imagination- and the detail! Right down to the half-eaten donut by the coffee cup- right out of the second movie....

@ Vik, Thanks boss.

Still working on figs, but got up early this morning, for no particular reason, and thought I would do the outside walls....

First wall...




So onward while I have a few minutes before off to work, overtime tonight, but back later I hope.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you.

@ Graven, That's what I like to see. Please pick away. And thank you.
@ Vik, Thanks bud, and yes there will be more walls and rooms and corridors. Oh and I know I am a bit old school at times, but tar as an adhesive is no good at all, Unless you are laying down some grit on a battle field. Or doing a lava effect. MMM have to have a think on this!
@ Cleatus, Thanks bud, it's just hotglue, it's actually still hot at this point so its clear.
@ Tom, Thank you sir, and drop me a PM with your address and I will happily send you some.

OK added some detail...


And a very fresh coat of primer...


Now going off to look at that OSL edging/ feathering in.

C&C welcome and indeed encouraged, thanks for looking.

Thanks guys.

Maybe Vik, and this is more of a skin for the outside of the other tile, as you will see below. It will allow another room or a corridor to be added to the battlefield, constant expansion is possible.

OK quick update before my beloved daughter steals my computer to watch Anime, considering she has her own it's a bit much.

Still WIP, got the detailing to start yet.


My control panels are not perfect, but I am happy enough, if you are happy enough with what you see, PM me, I know Tom was interested.


Oh and for you Vik...




Well back laters, got to get some shots put together for the LoER comp.

Thanks for looking and all C&C welcome.

Sooooooo good! and so inspirational! I love watching you work, the containment tanks are something I've been planning on re visiting since my first attempt years and years ago and seeing yours has made me want to do it now rather than later I bought two plastic containers of '100's and 1000's from the supermarket to use as my clear cylinders but I would love to add some lighting but i'm not sure how, if you'd be kind enough to help teach me? I have no experience with circuits and lights etc so be gentle

now back to gushing over your project! looking amazing! love the containers obviously and the murky yellow is spot on for the images from the movies (which I have watched every one again in the last couple weeks) Weyland Yutani Corp are bastards, I can't condone their experiments and ideas to harvest and evaluate these Xenomorph it's not right! but luckily we have some friendly Yautja (sic) to stem the tide! are they from the game?

Your treatment of the walls,floor and sliding doors (how cool are they!) is excellent, great vibe for a laboratory but it needs a smooth area with a plughole to wash any fluids down....

so when does chapter 2 take hold properly so I can watch you give man-birth to another awesome terrain!

Everything is looking great! I love the touch of the frosted donuts as well sitting near the coffee cup, and the corporate logo over the door to remind them who they worked for.. The predators and aliens also look spot on.

The next piece of wall is great. Do you have any plans to expand to a whole table or just see where it goes? Although I think you do need a "clean room" where everything is that insanely, creepy clean with white crisp walls so you know for a fact that's where the really nasty stuff goes down.

HELP!

I am doing a display board for Gitsplitta, Unknown to him (shhh) I am going to do a quick and dirty "B" side, for his Imperial forces. Now the thing is I am not to hot on the symbology. So Aquila are generic Imperial, are the half mech half evil skull symbols a generic or an Admech thing. Want a nice symbol to sit in each corner, nothing to ostentatious. But would be nice for Gits (shhh) if itb could be bused bmaybe for his Admech and his Mantis Warriors and he is building a small IG force , so want to keep it generic.

since the admech sign/head/skull thingy stands also for the machine spirit i think you would totally get away with using such a piece for anything IG too...? tho i am not THAT fluent and firm in the fluff... but look at it this way... wings and claws you could use too in the same way...they´re generic but also SM associated...if all else fails... put skulls on skulls...

they love their skulls they do! A common symbol I see a lot for IG and other things under the imperium is a skull with wings. That and the Aquila are the ones I'd say are the top symbols.Or servo skulls, or sometimes skulls in numbers or letters for regimental/chapter symbols.... have you thought of skulls?
