Been busy trying to finish some stuff, but here's a preview



This is the start of my multifunctional diorama. The rest of the rest can be read in my blog (too lazy to write everything here again. hehe)

Glad to see you survived your bus adventure...more or less.
That's a VERY COOL idea, worthy of theft...a LIVING diorama. The cul de sac makes a perfect display setting for your minis. If you were to add upper stories to the buildings, you'd have a a multilevel display case that would ROCK. WELL DONE! thumbsup

Hmm, I think you have something there, and I don't mean just the syphilis. har har..... Yeah I'm an arse.

The alley set would certainly use a upper floor so to say with additional windows and junk.
Thanks, more work for me Smile

My whole friggin' arm ached afterward. hehe
That must be one of the more boring aspects of terrain making. Those cursed bricks. But since I haven't figured out an easier way to do it I'll just have to suck it up and keep tracing with my trusty pen. Rolling Eyes

@ Tux- I see we suffer from the same dilemma: Laziness. hehe

Wellp, I've started painting the bloody thing. I've always hated to paint on peeled foam board, but what you gonna do. (open to suggestions). The colors here are not quite as in real life. But the light in here is pretty much crap and my camera has a different opinion about things than I have.
Here be some pics. Enjoy Smile

*Note: The sign above the door in the upper right pic says "Ale & Women", and on the other side is a picture of a tankard.

Thank you, thank you Very Happy
I tired to go for a mix of Mordheim and Ankh-Morpork (hence the Thief Guild sign). Now comes the tedious work with all the small details (barrels and such).
And after that, the next set of walls. Not sure what I'll do for the next set tho, but it will come to me sooner or later.

So I've started with the next set: A Castle/Fort (whichever strikes your fancy) front


Had these walls lying around after a terrain piece gone wrong. Fortunately,
with just a wee bit of cutting on the sides, they fit perfectly into my
diorama-box. Now we'll just have to wait and see what will become of it.

VERY COOL! Could be the City Gates...or whatever. I had checked that out on your Blog earlier...looks just as cool here, even without the Movie Reviews. thumbsup
Both of these suckers will make GREAT little stages for photograhing your minis.

Oh deary me, someone (whom I don't sleep with that is) is actually reading my blog?
Might have to mind what I write then..... naaaah Twisted Evil

Huh, a photo stage for my mini's. I haven't really thought of that (even tho I have used it as one previously). Funny sometimes how some ideas are right there in front of you and it doesn't hit you until it turns into a sledgehammer with a bad temper. I was just doing 'em for the hell of it.
Cheers DeafNala for the hint thumbsup
