Ever since I saw the textures on the walls of okumarts ' Darkfast Dungeons Expansion Set One: Realm Of Shades, I've wanted to make it into a modular system that was more compatible with how I like to build things. Here's the result. I'll be honest with you, I started this project *this week*... I was able to create 6x6", 3x6" and 3x3" tiles, stairs with optional side rails, 3" and 6" walls and the three types of posts necessary to hold things up, and 3" and 6" fancy edging. Once the excitement dies down a little, I will be building this out - it makes for a very unique environment to go adventuring.
This first two pictures show off a very basic setup.
I would like to imagine that the wizard there is putting on a brave face, about to shout something dramatic at the big devil guy, but inside she's thinking "Aw geez. There's a pretty good chance it *shall* pass..."
I've got lots of leftover bits with which to build. Working with what's available in the original set, I teased apart pillars and the statue, trying to blend things together to make seamless walls.
Everything breaks down and stores pretty flat. I will definitely dedicate a shoebox to Darkfast Dungeons mods.

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

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!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
