Thanks Brian.
Will have to see where I can get it in the UK for a good price (and doesn't have a postage cost that's more than the item). One found so far, not sure what their postage is yet.

I found some of this stretch rigging line from a competitor that was a) cheaper and b) longer, so got that.
Just turned up this morning and I'm thinking I maybe should have got the thicker version.. this is really fine.
you see that trailing end there?
Space Marine for scale.

Now to try and glue it on.
It's stretchy, it's clingy, and I can barely see it without a white background... just my sort of thing.

The mound continues with some stone steps.
I toyed about with thinking of some neat concrete steps, but decided upon rough stone steps instead.

This will lead up to a wooden platform on stilts and I'll build a hut of some kind on top. May try and keep the setting fairly neutral.

Also, another finished project; some crystal / precious stone earrings.
Check out the beautiful assistant showing them off too... (that's an old model, so don't actually judge it)

The blue is inspired by lapis lazuli and has some golden flecks in it.

That is all for now.

Yeah, cheaper == thinner == not as visible.

--B.

Well it's not thinner because it's cheaper.
It's thinner because I chose the thinner option (recommended for N-gauge, which is what I'm building at). I could have got thicker for the same price.

I could have also got an even thinner line...
this is what I've got

I try to be.

Finished large train display.




I only ran 8 of the possible 12 lines as they have a tendency to wrap around their neighbours and another layer would make it really difficult to untangle them.
The line does the job, but I'd probably recommend the thicker line as it's easier to see on the finished model, and while you're using it.
But I do have plans to use it for floating items in the future...

In other news:
I've been trying to set up Pi-hole for the house as a random side project after seeing a video about it.
It works as a DNS for your network and can block domains from receiving your data and from showing you unwanted things.
It doesn't outright block all ads, but it blocks the tracking and malicious ones, and you can add/remove domains as you like.
But, as with all technology, we've been having problems with getting one device to work with it. Time will tell if I find a solution.
This has kept me busy this week though.

I will have some progress on the mound piece soon though.

Happy spooky day.

Thanks Cap'n.

Curious. They show for me, but I uploaded them.
That first one in particular is quite large, maybe it just takes a while to load?

Anyone else not able to see the pic's in the gallery?

Thanks Graven'.

And progress on the mound piece.

Finished off the stone steps and filled in around them with just some tissue/PVA (to save on some weight on that side of the model compared to using clay or plaster), and then created the platforms (all in card stock), gave them some structure underneath and textured the top.


Add some stilts etc. and then build something on top... I am leaning towards a Japanese-style, wooden structure, paper windows, fancy roof... I just get that feeling from it.

Looks great to me. Now do one in a winter theme with kids sledding down the hill and a train running them over . Or at least the sled tracks to a bloody smear on the tracks and parts in the trees......man Iā€™m being really gruesome right now for some reason .

Thanks Gits'.

Progress on the mound piece.
The platforms got edging to make them look like planks within a frame.
And the stilts were added.


Next job will be to cover the mound in my mud n' rocks basing before affixing the platforms.

Cool! so what function can the platform serve? Observation? sacrificial? oratory for the masses? landing pad? all the possibilities! (Looks just big enough for an Argus lander)

Thanks 'boss.

Thanks York'.
Ah he's a re-painted early member of my personal army.

Thanks Gits'.

Thanks Azalle. Welcome back. I've been fairly quiet recently, but should be more busy in the coming months.

Thanks CK. I am too. We may have to wait a bit to find out though, see below.

Thanks Theo'.

Thanks Shas'.

First, progress on the mound.
I've textured the ground.

The less rough areas will be rock and the rest will be muddy / grass-covered.
I've also attached the smaller platform, but the larger platform is left loose for now as I may need access to the underside when building the building on top.

Long time followers may be aware that I create presents for the family for their birthdays and Christmas. Usually, I start Christmas preparations in December. but this year I decided to start early to avoid the rush I end up in the week before Christmas. This means the current project is being put aside for now and will return once the presents are done.
Prepare yourselves for a handful of random projects again.
One is in physical planning stage, one is in reference collecting stage...

Thanks Shas'.

After much wood chopping and sanding I have the start of present 1 of 4.
Based on a thing I found on the internet and can be described as a bookcase diorama.
Vis'
Spoiler:


But mine will have a Lord of the Rings vibe as I have 2 miniatures to make use of; Elrond and Thranduil.
Here's the plan:

The right hand side is going to be an elven structure, a bit like:
Spoiler:

Thranduil will be stood on an upper floor of the structure (see arrow).
The rest of those circles on the base will be trees, twisty, Mirkwood trees.
I plan on a rope-bridge from the upper floor into the wood on the left, Will have to see if this fits in.
And there is a path snaking off into the back left.
The top half-ish will be branches and foliage.

And finally, I plan some lights in the top left, hidden by the foliage, as if light filtering through the trees from wherever the path is going.

Plans all subject to change as I work on it...
