PostSubject: Temple of Eternal Light WIP   Sat 28 Jun 2014 - 9:37

this is my second "overlapping" building module
the Temple of Eternal Light
(could be for Sisters of Sigmar, but I never got around to getting that warband)
it definitely will not be "ruined" but a functional, defensible building
as those viewing my posts know, my boards have 8" x "8" openings for buildings
this building was planned as 12" x 12" but it is now 12" x 11"
the shorter 1" provides alley access to the back gate
2nd level will be an octagon with "rooms" on 3 sides, open to below
3rd level will be walkway around octagon only, open to below
domed roof, oculus open to below!
pretty sure dome will be gold
total height ~ 11"
comments and questions welcome Smile

2 sketches showing some of my planning and changes





a few views of the base with completed tile work
I generally now do tile work before walls
before I would do walls, then had to squeeze my hand in small rooms!
identification of space (1st photo) left to right, top to bottom:
1 outhouse
2 barracks
3 private room
4 kitchen
5 courtyard
6 dining room
7 stables/storage (next to temple wall)
8 temple
9 covered porch (bottom left); was supposed to be enclosed storage room but then I realized a 1.5" wide room wouldn't really be accessible in play, so a change...









what was that?  is there a secret door again? yes!



a la Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, crypt entrance in church in Italy...

While working to a plan has never been my thing, the merits of the method are obvious in the results. The floor looks BEAUTIFUL...I love the hidden entrance to The Crypts. It is a VERY promising start to another FINE building. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

3rd level floor cut
flooring about 1/2 done (but not shown)
roofs to do
4th level floor cut and laid out (but not shown)spent time thinking about whether the dome level has anywhere to stand or just the dome
whether the dome is complete or damaged...not sure yet
3 levels of brick work with solder iron on (harder than usual) plywood = tedious!
still some finishing solder work on level 1
WIP...
multiply for all sides and you will get an idea of what level 2 (and 3) will look like Smile

Considering the amount of work your building methods entail, the Cathedral is moving along a good pace. GREAT WORK as always!   thumbsup

more updates

showing layout of walls and brick work penciled on
it's also one long strip so that I can safely and accurately use the jigsaw to cut out windows!
(it's very hard/impossible when u pre-cut walls THEN try and use jig saw...)


single piece roof for over quarters/rooms cut out
2 of 3 walls laid out with gateway & door cut but not photographed
roof lines drawn out


3rd level wood flooring done
still walls and roofs to do
note opening along walkway
ladder to below planned


u can start to get a sense of the scale of the building
also the interior angles/line of sight for shooters


walls starting to go up
interior railing finished
(have to repeat for 3rd level...sigh)
good to NOT have all walls glued in place...made railing access and construction much easier
build from inside out!
you can see 2 access openings that will have ladders from level 1/ground floor


the exterior porch/covered walkway framed out
u can see the side door detail and double arches on back side that I don't think I showed in prior post


level 4/dome laid out but not cut or photographed yet
dome structure construction concept almost finalized, but nothing to show today

hope everyone gets a better sense of how I'm translating and modifying my early plans

all for now Smile

This is fantastic! That tiling technique is really interesting, I've never seen anything quite like it before. This building is very promising indeed. Smile

So far, so good! The plans look great, and you look as to be following them faithfully. I like the tile floor best.

thank you luddite, mikey, deafnala, theorox, theomar Smile

finished 3rd level railing
starting on roofing
on break from burning bricks but will probably get back to it later today
Smile

doorway and birck lay out


interior shot through front door


different angles








quick note on why I plan and measure: don't want to eyeball/estimate a 1" (for 25 mm base) or 2" width (for 2 x 25 mm bases) then find out later my figs don't fit!

hopefully more pics this weekend...

VERY IMPRESSIVE! I would imagine careful planning is necessary with the materials you use...foam is much more forgiving. The planning certainly bares dividends; i.e., your creation is BEAUTIFUL. WONDERFUL WORK!   thumbsup

slow progress
roofing coming along
a wall or two more
the dome is framed
probably some light floor framing so figures can stand
undecided on:
1. removable shell that covers whole frame
2. partially destroyed dome
3. leave as is
...

Excellent carpentry! The building looks quite big, how tall is it?
