quick pics
comments & questions welcome
Smile

original idea was egyptian-ish pyramid and rooms
you'll see the rooms part below
but you'll see in a later post that the pyramid will be mayan-ish
basically to make the "building" more playable like shown in other poster's versions as well as the old-school lustrian scenery
ramp down (and back to burial chamber inside pyramid)
3 anterooms
pool of radiance
underground temple
yes, there is a "star gate"...
hopefully pyramid next time
enough words!

This look´s really, really great by now.

I´m totally in love with the pyramid theme. Can´t wait to see where this is going.
Would love to see an Khemriish Pyramid too.

Have fun building and painting this one Wink

It is coming along WONDERFULLY! That does look complex though. This is a piece that careful planning becomes a necessity...that places it beyond my impromptu abilities. Keep up the GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

After having seen your last works over a long time, i am still in awe everytime i see new creations in wood by yourself. It looks like it s going to take you hours just for sawing oder cutting out those wooden tile or stairs, most impressive!

I was puzzling out the sacrificial altar positioning, but the pit looks lethal enough the fall that would kill the victim without any messy preliminaries. VERY NICE PROGRESS!   thumbsup

The rings for ball games are a great touch thumbsup thumbsup

Though the Egyptian theme suffers thereby...

VK, deafnala, cuchulain23, korn, foedebolle thx again for the comments
VK I agree from a historical perspective but I liked them
the piece is turning out mayan-ish/meso-american on top, egyptian-ish on the bottom + a totally inaccurate spawning pool
oh well, it's turned into a (fantasy) mash-up
I have some exterior pyramid tiles to finish up (not shown in photos) but the construction is pretty close to done
even though the floor plate/lid is still modular -- it will fit any of my ~8"x8" buildings in the cut out where the pyramid sits, this is one of the first floor plates with permanent 3D features (walls, pillars, pool, stairs)
design decisions (e.g. location of walls, pillars, door openings) placed to matche up with my other modular boards
probably won't get to paint this weekend...

I´m excited to see this textured and painted.

paint coming along WIP:







note that the inner walls in the dungeon/underground level are not installed yet

this helps to be able to paint easier

after the clear coat is dry, the masking tape will be removed so that the inner walls can be glued to the base and each other with strong wood glue

I love the interior views; it really is very atmospheric. The OH-SO-COOL Formerly Living Priest & the piles of treasure give a hint to just how TERRIFIC this will be for action photos & games, if so inclined. WONDERFUL WORK!   thumbsup

ug! only 1/8th through this detail and I'm lacking inspiration!
I meant to/should have carved this detail before I constructed the pyramid but got lazy/anxious and pushed ahead
now I'm not so happy trying to accurately cut with a utility knife and extract material with knife and file...


so a couple of crappy shots showing water effects for spawning pool and pool of radiance
I simply use water based gloss varnish from hardware store





staircase detail
(and a note: notwithstanding the pyramid stairs, I choose to generally sacrifice architectural accuracy for playability, i.e. "flat" stairs so models can "stand")


why I have a staircase


a hint of the end




and how a flat modular "building" transforms the board


thinking of doing a "platform" building with pillars as alternative to pyramid...

Smile
