[img][img][list] I have obviously been working on a huge amount of models so this is now my CITIES OF DEATH terrain BLOG

Yeah guys I am looking for some color ideas for my Shrine Of Aquila Conversion project. I have been playing around with a marble-ish paint job but can't decide. Any advice you guys have would be awesome. You can see the raw version in my gallery.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Mike

I wouldn't try marble buy in a few spots. Imperial building and architecture tends to be metallic and concrete.

It is a combination of all three cites of death kits mainly the Shrine of Aquila and Sanctum Imperialis. As for the color ideas I already have three other kits in the grey, metal, imperium look. Just wanted some ideas on something more unusual, like the marble-ish look. I think I am going to go for an ivory color and a darker gold color for the aquilia. I will post some pics soon.

Any other ideas would still be welcome.

Thanks for the comments

If you go to my gallery you can see different WIPs. I haven't applied the statues yet, my blog won't be updated for a while (while I finish construction on my basement). Sorry.

still workin on this one, using a few more bits to finish it up. I am using the dead blood angel from space hulk. Also I finally got some candles from MAXMINI to set the mood. I will start working on a scratch built alter and will keep you all updated

as always comments are appreciated and very very helpful,

Nice! If you want some easy candles, a bit of plastic rod and a cut-off of most top-knots will make a nice candle.

@CadianXV

i am happy you like it... the recipe is bestial brown base coat, dry brush stone brown, dry brush bone white, dry brush mithiral silver (very very lightly) , and wash with devlin mud!!

i tried it on a test piece first to find the right blend, so try it first and figure out what amounts work for you.

@CommissarKhaine

the candles I got from MAXMINI are sick!! But your method sounds cool, any ideas for an alter... I am thinking pink foam board and cities of death bits??

hmm, maybe an Imperial Aquila on the front of the altar. Keep up the good work.

For what it's worth: I like the altar. I might consider filling in the roguht spots with greenstruff, but that's just personal preference. I know the termie is still WIP, but I'd really consider adding lots of weathering to the model - the paint isn't made from ceramite AFAIK

Good job, keep it up!

thanks for all the feedback, it has helped out a ton. The problem with the altar (it is a prototype) is that it is made from pink foam! which as we all know melts when glued and sprayed. the top is plasty card and the rest is pink foam. I have been thinking about what other pieces I can use but nothing comes to mind. Forge World has a nice resin one but it costs like $20 us. What do you guys think? I need help on this one cuz without the altar the whole idea is pointless.

as for the dead termie I cant wait to weather it!! lots of dings, dents , and scratches are forth coming!

HELP I NEED AN ALTAR! ( at least one I love anyway ) OH well back to the drawing board!!!


Thanks again,

Mike

Just fill in the spared bits with plasticard, then spray it black again. Or build the basic shape out of plasticard and add bits, it should be feasible. As far as I can tell from the pics, sliding a bit of plasticard between the decorations shouldn't be too hard? As an alternative, get hold of the old heroquest boxed set. it includes an altar

nice work - love the project
the alter seems small to me - but is a prototype?

the Imperium seem to do things LARGE, so see it as being a huge solid affair - I like the idea of the Aquila which is de rigeur for all things imperial.

FWIW I have found that the best results for sticking plastic card to foam is the No-nails type adhesive.
It can be a bit slippy at first but once in position and left to dry gives an excellent bond.
Another advantage is that it is available here from the cheapo shops!

look forward to seeing more
ps What about an alter cloth over the top to add more interest

@jabbakahut
I got them from MAXMINI! check out the web page http://www.maxmini.eu/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=12&products_id=56

they have some really great resin bits and fair prices, only draw back was they are in Poland!

@Chibi Bodge-Battle
after a great deal of thought I think I agree with your larger is a better idea. My new altar will be a multi level with an aquila proudly displayed at the top. Also I LOVE the cloth idea! I am going to steal that from you.

Thanks again for all of your help and comments, keep um coming

Facing a pink foam alter with plastic card shouldn't be too difficult, and would give it a sense of rigidity. Mounting it on a small platform would also make it more imposing.

I also think a free standing Aquilla in place of the goblet would work well!
