You have a real flair for the stonework...VERY NICE START! thumbsup Carving the stuff up is a favorite pastime with moi also. As far as making a living carving up foam goes, you'd need a market for the models or some very small people as potential inhabitants. clown

Hey guys!

Thanks so much for all the nice comments, as mentioned before i've slowed down but today was my day off and i managed to do a bit of work on both the house and the temple!

Here's the House with some paint on, and some texture on the walls: (and my armless ubbermarine who still doesnt have a name Razz)




And some further texture on the temple as well as lollypop walls for the first floor in the background and some paint:



Thanks again for all the kind messages!

Things seem to be coming along quite nicely...it's amazing how a little paint transforms things. The Temple floor has a spiderweb pattern/feel to it; maybe you could go for a Spider Goddess or some such thing. Keep up the GOOD WORK! thumbsup

Thank you Theo thank you Deaf!

EDIT: @Deaf I was thinking more of a Snake for Cathay theme but spider would be nice as well, She'd look good as a SPider Priestess

I had a long but good day today, i'm going to sleep like a baby. here's some updates! I hope the pictures are good enough to give an idea of how it's built. whatcha think?

I think your time in China has/is well spent; i.e., it's provided you with some fine inspiration. Even in its W.I.P. state this one is a BEAUTY. thumbsup

progress report!

Billy my space marine was feeling left out ... forgot him in the last pictures Razz

this floor is gonna be wood ^^ not sure about the windows yet but i suppose a very simple frame will do, more playable that way? anyway it's starting to look pretty tall ... the ground floor needs a sort of fence / rail around it and some reversed columns coming from the roof, but i'll keep that for last Razz

Right back at you Emissary Izmerul. This decadent oriental stuff certainly evoke the vibe for Shang-Yang trading outpost - see Border Town Burning

Wondering just how warriors are making the climb from level to level in this cute Cathayan watch tower... A trap-door or pulley system!?

I am not sorry to say that Billy the marine has got to go. We want to see Cathayan soldiers patrolling the perimeter! The odd Dragon Monk training or meditating in the compound would not go amiss. Wink

Now hop to it before old sensei Cianty catches wind of what you're up to!

Regards,

Stuart

Sometimes this kind of thread makes me more nervous and impatient than anything else! Smile

You see, I wish I had 24 hours a day to dedicate to my different projects and fit in all of them (right now I'm building a medieval town, so I have no chance to start any other project).

On a positive note, your Cathay style WIP project is looking beautiful!

Here are some things that you might want to get to decorate your buildings and surroundings:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261025704034?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

And, like Werekin said, Billy has to go. Smile

Why not populating your realm with some suitable models like these:

(although they are annoyingly expensive...)

Thanks for the support guys!

I hope i'll have time to do more work on this soon, but i'm a seasonal worker and now is the season for me ... so i spend the little spare time have on sleep.

I think i'll be able to get back to it when the school-year ends here as it will free up some hours on my agenda!

*will not give up*
