Construction Notes:
The entire building was created from random packing foam, popsicle sticks, card stock and a couple random bits. I created the rat in the rubble out of playdoh.

Nicely done!

My only critic: the building (Voltaire's shop) seems to be brand new... not dirty and dusty enough IMHO. It doesn't look like a ruin...

...but maybe that's part of the fluff around Voltaire?

Wink

Nice job !

I think it looks really really good. Especially the shoppe sign gives it an awesome touch. Great work!

Great job! Best rubble I've ever seen!

"Toad Sale" lol! Made me laugh out loud. Very very cool!

Make sure you take a pic where you lift the building up, so the judges can see that the rubble actually supports itself. It is so well done that they might think it is just "placed" there.
I am not saying they are stupid, but it is an advantage for you if you show them the clever construction you did (self-supporting popsickle sticks! Smile

Thanks for sharing!

Cheers.

That towers come out really nice! The rubble effect is really well done and the sign post looks really authentic. Good job on the roof tiles too. I always find it really tempting to cut out huge tiles cause its such a boring job but when it's done well like yours it makes a huge difference.

By the way... does this building have any windows?

Or does "Voltaire" open the door every time he wants to check if it's raining? Very Happy

LOL. I didn't even notice until now. You are right. Maybe Voltaire's really paranoiac about his magical equipment and items and that's his strategy to keep thieves out...

Hey All!

thank you for all the positive comments! I'm very proud of it.

Very good point. That is definitely something I'll have to remedy... unfortunately... It'll be after the competition ends. =/

Yet another good point. I'm sure I can come up with some silly excuse as to why it doesn't have windows =) but I think ur right, I should at least add some locked shutters or something... another thing for after the competition.

Thanks again for all your C&C!

It is great! You should be very proud.

Maybe you could start a terrain making service.

Sure,

Winners of a Terragenesis Competition get to create the next competition (and it get's marked on your profile).

I created the "Dual Purpose Competition"

Here are the rules for entry:
The Idea: Create a piece of terrain that doubles as something else as well.

Specific Criteria:
1. Every entry must have two (or more) separate purposes.
2. One of those purposes must be for "terrain" (obviously).
3. One purpose must not be for "terrain"

I first thought of it because i wanted to make my Dice tower/Mordheim building, but there are so many other good ideas. Here are some Ideas people have thrown around:

Examples:
1. Diorama Book End
( http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/foru...php?t=3123 )
2. Kleenex Box Cover
3. Dice Tower
4. A jewelery box
5. A pen holder/desk tidy
6. A table top periscope as per:
( http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/info...ge231.html )

Thanks guys,
