PostSubject: The Old Bailey WIP   Tue 4 Nov 2008 - 12:19

He's a look at the WIP of my first model since the days when the earth's crust was still kind of soft and oozy. I call it "The Old Bailey" since it's based on the idea of a prison.







Construction wise, it's made entirely of Baby Diaper boxes and a Cheerio's box (use what's on hand, and what I have on hand is a toddler), some toothpicks for pegs and white glue.

You'll notice the 2 walls are extremely nice and undamaged. I was having trouble deciding if I wanted to damage the structure, and then add the little bits of detail to it, or if I wanted to detail it and then wreck it. I figured that doing the details on the walls and then cutting them up and setting the thing on fire should give me a more realistic looking bit of damage to the building and save me time when it comes to detailing damage. I've got short lengths of Solder I am using for bars (which is easy to twist and deform to look like the windows were blown/pulled open) and other various bits for detail.

A couple of things I'm having trouble deciding on:

1. Floors, should I make them stone looking or wooden? My inclination is towards stone (keep them prisoners from tunneling out) but wood would look really neat.

2. Wood accents, would a big stone cellblock have the nice wood accents that are common to Mordheim scenery?

Next steps for me, I'm going to finish the stone work on the outer walls and then enjoy destroying the crap out of them. Then onto the interior detail. I'm taking lots of pictures of the process, so I can do a more indepth how-to later.

Obviously this is a single cellblock of a larger complex. I'm thinking I'll model some of the other bits after this.

Nice job so far, I think that it sould be more stone than wood. A big cell block like that with people in their cells for years would have to be much sturdier than the drink tank (overnidght stays), which could be made out of wood.

two cents:

I think if you make the walls stone, you should probably make the floors wood ... I say that because I think it will accent the building better... so it's not all the same color/material.


Off Topic:

I have heard of "Old-Bailey" only once before (in the movie V for Vendetta). Is it a building/statue currently? I'd like to know what it is/was. thanks

Old Bailey is a prison in London.

And you're making miracles with cardboard, DIY-hobbying FTW!

VERY NICE! cheers

NOT ONLY is it starting out VERY WELL, but you're doing one of my favorite things; i.e., taking nothing & making something out of it; COOL!

On the flooring, I think I'd tend to make the upper floors wood, & the ground floor stone with a trap door leading to the Dungeon from HELL! Keep posting; this is going to be fun to watch develope. thumbsup

prison reference - try the early scenes of pirates of the carribean where Jack is in Jail - you may find a nice balance of wood/stone reference in those scenes
