Not where I should be

Thank you everyone, wonderful feedback, and comments.

I will get to replying, but just for now here is an attempt at Ivy....

Snowflake punch, and bit of wire and some superglue.




Thoughts?

I have been looking on line and got to say there is an oppurtunity here, just can't get a reasonably priced leafy thing.

They still look like snowflakes to me.

Could you snag some fake ivy from a craft store? Or some fish tank plants you can cannibalize?

It's not bad.
From a distance (e.g. not blown up to ~10" on my computer screen) and if you didn't know them to be snowflakes, they do look like leaves. Not terrestrial Ivy (due to the difference in shape), but they don't have to be terrestrial plants.

Maybe cut off one or two of the tips to make fewer leaves?

Make it climbing clover, but have one cut down to four leaves instead of three and you can have people hunt for it. Also need a grot cabana boy , or an Orc who looks like Isaac from the loveboat .

Well, if it's his very favourite gun, it would have to be called "Vera", but then he'd need a cunning hat.

Nice. The rifle is looking awesome.

Can't think of a suitable name myself. I'm no good with making up names, why do you think that my army is led by "The Scientist" and the rest of the army are referred to by number...

Not where I should be

Well, Thank you guys.

Thank you all for your suggestions Love them all, going to have a think on it.

So more pictures in a minute, however...... I am thinking of withdrawing from the competition.

This is no longer a piece of playable terrain. and I think that it is unfair to push the limit of the brief to this extent. I am not 100% yet but am seriously thinking about it.

Now these will probably be the last WIP shots of the whole thing, before final posting. I have more details to add yet and am working on several bits and pieces. Also going to go with Red's idea of some graffittiiittii on the blank walls. Probably going to add some flaggy things drapped out windows. Lots of foliage, which will be the last bits just about. Oh and some signs. I will leave you with the pictures and your thoughts are most welcome and indeed very much appreciated.....






Thank you, for looking.

Nooooooooooo....Withdrawing is not an option mister! My own entry is also more a duo than a playable piece of terrain...and I bet others too. I think from my own clouded point of view, yours is without the shadow of a doubt the winning piece... Without that the then winner still would feel only second place. My opinion: man up to win...

Besides, little tower clearly stated that any entry could be either playable terrain or a diorama...so, for me your not off the hook yet *shakes fist*

Cam... seriously... enter it. Let the judges decide if it's playable or not. It deserves to be seen and considered.

I've seen several of the pieces in and out of the structure, do any of them still come out or have they been glued in? I'd say it's still playable, just a little odd having all those orks running around mid-game :p But hey, maybe they're civiliorks, just set dressing. It looks soo friggen cool though You've won...something... just by making something so awesome, whether you stay in the competition or not, that's a piece to be proud of!

I agree with Gitsplitta though, enter all the things and let the judges sort it out

Well thank you guys for the votes of confidence. I am sure it is far from cut and dry yet, several brilliant entries out there, not as many in total as I would like. I am hoping for some last minute entries. No victory if I am the only one to finish.

OK I am continuing on anyways, so here are some more little bits......

They breed!!!


More stuff.


Oh and a sign!



Thoughts.

Thank you all, really mean it, it makes a big difference.

oh....yuck!!!...what did you now bring up... are these spores? or worms?...what a cool idea... how were they made?

the sign is epic!...

and speaking of adding stuff on a day to day basis... somehow I am a bit like you... the more I work on my own entry it starts to collect new ideas as I go along... I think this only means how attached one is to his work...so long as you have new fresh ideas that actually have a meaning for the dio then this means you are really still into that build...which is a good thing...and it shows exactly this in each pic you present to us!!!

This is one of my favorite models to watch grow! you have really, really gone way out with it and to such an awesome result! I love the amount of details you have added in as well as the osl and grime, the Orks skin tones (especially the first one with controller) are wickedly good too!! you've made a perfect mix of scenery/terrain/diorama/vignette that should be put somewhere safe for future awesomw inspirations! :-) great stuff dude i'm really impressed!
