It is called dentil molding and it looks awesome indeed!
Thank you. I never heard of that term before.
It is pretty typical for the architecture of the men of Gondor and Numenor (their ancestors).
It also appears on the structure on Amon Hen (at the end of the first film )
The start of some new terrain pieces
What will it be?
My secret project is done
now I can finally share it with you all.
At the start of the project (28 September) I had a general idea about what I wanted to do: Build a ziggurat for my Seraphon forces. But just one piece of scenery wouldn't do. The goal was to make it modular to serve in more situations as scenery.
Here are the first images I had for the design:
This was a for a consideration on appearance.
In the end I went with the second option, the wooden beams concealed the points of contact between the sheets of foam.
Furthermore I wanted all the layers of the ziggurat to be separate so the scenery could be fit for my need. besides that there need to be stairs and what is better than making them modular as well
This led to the first steps of crafting the shapes out of foam:
(Gandalf for scale )
Now that the shapes are forming it is time for texturing and finding a paintsceme:
At this stage I wanted to add to it with something more decorative, but not over the top. Out of it came a little archway (this time with a Starpriest for scale)
The set-up in the last picture is playable as Realmshape Engine as the base size is close to 16x16 cm and it has a total height of about 15 cm.
While getting progress in I played around with setups to see how they would like
In doing so I accidently found out that the stairs in an upright position exactly reached the top of the archways
Ooooh, really interesting!!!
I ended up with the following:
Because the platforms are build out of foam sheets of just 4mm thick the inside is hollow. This makes for easy storage:
I love how modular you have made your terrain. I did the same thing with my jungle terrain collection, but I am so happy you went a full step further and figured out a way to allow them to easily store together! I wish I had thought of that!
Dude this is some awesome modular terrain! Great job!
@Imrahil, that is an awesome set of terrain! It's totally built by hand from foam, is painted just lovely... AND it packs up neatly. I'm still geeking out about this. Bravo!
Thank you very much for the kind words
Thank you very very much
Some progress on the Gondor tower, it has a ladder now:
Time for paint
Awesome. I love that you made it modular.
Thanks. this choice was made for playability inside. It still will have to prove to be convenient , but that's after it is painted.
I don't know how I've missed this post! Really amazing job you've done here! I really like it! Have you used extruded polystyrene?
Thank you kindly
For all my foam builds I use Floor lining insulation panels from Ikea. It is described as Polystyrene plastic.
Some new stuff, not quite scenery, but more gameplay related.
Heroes in MESBG have a number of wounds just like in Warhammer but they also have Might, Will and Fate points to infleunce actions, dice rolls, cast and resist magic and sort of an aftersave. To keep track of those you can use pen and paper, which means a lot of writing and erasing.
Therefor I want to keep track with dice in an orderly fashion. That's why I designed these:
Work in progress, but I like how they shape up
