Over the river, through the woods

i loathe being sick. i haven't tasted food since the second week of december... and feeling achy and not being able to breathe didn't make for a remarkable work environment in regards to finishing the project for the last competition. then the computer apparently had a massive heart attack...just now getting back online.

12 weeks should be plenty of time to complete something...assuming i get some kind of inspiration relatively soon.

i'll tell you, it's good to be back.

Sorry to hear of your woes Gawdam - but glad to hear you're on the mend now

Ideas and WIP's already coming in...wow

My initial thought is to head back into orksville for this one, as it seems to offer plentiful scenarios for such a theme...but as nothing immediately comes to mind, I'm going to sit on it for a while to see what other nefarious plans I can come up with.

indeed. Although I've yet to find something that convinces me (and I have looked into it more than most).

I'm also tempted to do something along the lines of the magic-gone-wrong accident. Will have to see how things progress.

Good start, Magos. Good use of the packaging.

Interesting ideas people.

It seems to make sense, but just want to clarify. If it's a diorama then any 'playable models' should be removable. If it's a pure diorama with no models that are intended to be playable, then they can be fixed.

I'm starting to think the DarkForges of the rogue mechanicum could be a very dangerous place...potential for lots of interesting accidents there

Still working out ideas but I'll probably be going for either a Hellcannon/Daemon Engine misfire or a summoning ritual mishap. Orks, Skaven and Chaos seem to have plenty of potential for this.

*phew*

The minimum 10cm*10cm will be much easier to achieve and store, though I'll probably still go with something similar to my original concept just not as utterly massive (which is good 'cos I have allocated zero funds for modelling for the next X months, with the exception that I'm allowed to buy a toy car/truck for conversion to ash wastes vehicle from an Op-Shop, and I was struggling to figure out exactly how to build my monstrosity)

Good to see so many people signing up

the size is more a guide, and you really don't have to "oops I accidentally whole game table!"

@Grimdork: good point on the russ!, some cool ideas you have there.

@Magos: yea 1m x 1m sounds fun, good to have you aboard Sounds interesting, looking forward to hearing more. I was wondering if someone would be mad enough to make something huge haha certainly an interesting start!

@Gawdam: sorry to hear about that, get well soon, I hope you're able to compete in this comp.

@Vik: Your idea is insane and awesome in equal measures, I'm really looking forward to seeing this!

@monkeytroll: plenty of time, I'm sure it'll be something awesome none the less

@DrH: a fantasy entry??? sounds cool

@Gitsplitta: given how vague they are it'll probably be fine.

@Fango: Good to hear there maybe a fantasy entry

anyone can join? no strings attached if it cannot be finished on time?

i'd like to join, please. god knows how much I'm needing some terrain.

*edit* does a unit filler for a unit of WHFB count?

Well, if you fail to finish we may publicly shame you a little

But it's not too bad!

I would assume the unit filler would count as long as it met the 10cm size and was an accident of some kind.

failing to finish my own projects and being publicly shamed is almost standard for me among my gaming group, so that`s fine XD

crap, I didn't pay attention to the minimum size. a 10cm unit filler would probably be bigger than the unit itself, unless 10cm² counts and that's still pushing it a lot.

cheers!

*edit*
...so guys, were we supposed to start building already? because I kind of did.

I might have to re-think my "What Happened?" project - it's not coming along at all like I had hoped. Perhaps I should buy some talent or skills from Ebay? :-D

(this post is mainly because we're supposed to post the occasional WIP and I finally started)

Not where I should be

Looks good, a bit ...um.....rough.

I would try :

Thin down some filler and "mortar" in it up. Another words, "pointing". Spatula it on and wait a bit and rub it down with a cloth so you can see the Rocks pointing through.

Second would be paint it in PVA and cover itin sand, and again let it set up a little and then rub it to expose the rock.

Another words fil the cracks. It will end up very heavy!

I love the look of it though.

Had a look at the blog and very excited to see how you go.

Great work all round people, most excellent start.

Yep, I'm with Cam - looks good, but needs pointing. Interesting idea, I do like it, and will have the advantage of being able to use it as a bludgeoning weapon once done, going to be pretty hefty weight

Still undecided - but at the moment it's either a terrain piece comprising of crashed ork rocket ship, or a diorama showing the creation of a daemon engine going horribly wrong.

Of course, as I only have rough plans for both of those ideas at present it could well turn out to be something else entirly
