Hi all,

I'd like to join the party... and though I know that I play with fire, I've desided to enter the competition with a rivet-less (=minus 10 points for design) entry...

Ah hang on. Are we allowed to create a number of smaller pieces of terrain and group them together, or does it have to be a single piece? It was my intention to create one central building, but surround it with a few other bits to give it some character? The whole thing would be the same size as some of the entries from previous competitions.

I think scale and size is also open to everything... I think cam stated in the rules that you can go ballistic in size if you stick to the time setting...

@ Wyrmalla. Indeed exactly as Vik said, build away, one item or several that make a whole, not worried as long as it is completable in the time frame. At the end we do want you to have a usable piece of terrain. So what ever works for you.

@ All the new guys, welcome and great to see you. Now bring it on people. I expect to see wip shots by 00:05 tonight.

Does taking a picture of a bottle of Stella and calling that a WIP shot count? ...I would be drunk of course, but I feel that I would be held to making my thing out of the detritus of a New Year's party. =P

It is! Crap, crap, crap!

Okay, here's my opening. ...Thingy. << Gets pelted with used toilet roles and other "building materials".

Tease, tease... Its an airplane's wing. The text reads, the "Long Haul". Don't guess at what's going along with it, as you'll probably come up with something a lot better than what I'll build. ^^'



* Yes, I did go to a party for Hogmonay ...But we played with boardgames, and nobody would allow me to cannibalise them for this competition. I know, I'm sorry. Hopefully it won't reflect poorly on your judging.

Oh yeah, and uh... happy new year people. Get to it!

Fantastic Wyrmalla, only slighlty disappointed not to see actual human remains.

And Cormadepanda, well of course sir please do.

We are officially started people so lets see some action.

Oh and just to clarify for people, you may join at any time as long as we can have a wip shot and a complete shot within the time frame of the competition.

Ah yeah, right, but I inferred that as current League members, not competitors? I'll stick an advertisement for this in my sig if the judges allow it, but if that one's only for members I wouldn't want to be presumptuous.

I think that this is just a promo banner for the competition, actually redirects to this thread... League members have

Please correct me if I'm wrong

LittleTower, looking good mate. I wanted to do the same thing but I couldn't figure out where to get a good sized half barrel. What's yours made of?

Jack, really nice tent. I like that a lot. Weathering looks good on it too.

Thanks a lot guys, I was thinking the last days for a piece of terrain to house my DKoK, this competition is a major inctentive.
The idea is to build something completely from scratch from mostly "unorthodox matterials". The "canvas" for the tent is made by a cotton-wooven-cloth-like piece that is from an airplaine seat and has great texture. The rest are cotton swabs and st@rbucks stirring sticks.
The next step is to cover the inside with resin 'cause it is too soft to work with and perhaps respray the Imperial Eagles, I just hope I won't ruin it with the resin...

@Camkierhi: Thaks, will try to keep up.

@JackDarkmoore: Great looking tent, and nice weathering. Question: You mentioned later you were going to cover it in resin. To make it harder/sturdier, I guess? Have you considered using PVA instead? If the cloth cotton based, it should adhere OK, and it might be easier to work with

@alabamaheretic: Rushed to post the first WIP, maybe this shows a bit better where I'm - trying - to go.

@Snrub: The main structure is made from a cut-off of PVC water drain pipe, 100 mm diam (120 would have probably been better, but this is what I had laying around!)

Some progress:



Cheers.

Wow, everyone's already started, This is what happens when your internet goes down for 3 days, looks like i'm playing Catch up .

I'm going with my first idea, which is slightly more Diorama than Terrain, but could still be used as both.
I wont go into any detail's yet as I'm not sure I'll be able to do it,
but as soon as I have something I'll post some WIP here.
