I've just added some basic wall panel sections. The first lot are for the edges of the rooms & corridors, so they only need to be one-sided. The others are for walls placed on the floor tiles to act as dividers. I also added a photo of a corridor section I made with Gun Crawl scenery to should how I do the walls.
I thought so too. It started when I printed some of the Gun Crawl figures in black and white as a test of the size. Instead of binning them, I washed over them with water colour paints. They came out not too bad. I then figured that, as in most movies, dark monotone corridors were the best for that spooky bug-hunt type scenario, I'd see what the scenery looked like in B&W. Though they were done on a laser-jet and came out very dark. Still, playing solo or with my little boy, neither of us mind to much about the print tone, not when you have GW Space Marines and Gun Crawl paper figures verses Giant plastic spiders, Gormiti and Go Go Crazy Bones...
I say 2/3rds, because I want to have a sloping panel at the top, as I have in the corridor sections, but I really messed up the angle of intersection at the angled corners (two planes 135 degrees with a section inclined at 45 degrees... Euclidean geometry time )
The squaddies needn't worry about the Slasher as it's pretty 'armless! OK, it's only half finished because I started doing them 2,5D and it takes sooo long. I think to start with, I'll finish off the batch as straight 2D.

With pieces from the floow tiles and wall panel sheets: The (still under construction) loading deck of the Soviet Research Vessel Lev Davidovich Landau with Soviet Naval Infantry facing off against unkown aliens...
If anyone else actually uses these scenery bits, I would like to see some pictures.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
