My Tomb of Blood game at Pheonix Lakeland Wargames Show. Church, Gravedigger's shed and two crypts David Graffam. Wall, hills, path and two crypts Fat Dragon Games. Lanterns Papierschnitzel. Other items Kev's Lounge,One Monk, Wizkids and various others. Everything fits a 6x2 feet table.
The Vault containing the Count's tomb. Fold flat model by Mystic Mountain. Floor from David Graffam tiles set adapted to fit.Walls reinforced with packing card, interior decoration adapted from David Graffam Crypt. Sarcophagus by Stone Edges, slightly scaled down.
Fat Dragon path with Papierschnitzel lantern and One Monk crypt.
Gravestones, a mix of Kev's Lounge, Fat Dragon and World Works adapted to Kev's Lounge slot bases. The bases were textured to match the hill in Photoshop. I made edging strips from Fat Drogon ground tiles to cover the joins on the hill and cut slots for extra graves.
Thanks for the positive feedback. A few more details for your delectation
Sarcophagi and the Grim Reaper statue
The gravedigger's shed (David Graffam)
The gnarly old tree by Kev's Lounge. The most difficult paper model I have attempted to date. Gravestones are a mixture Fat Dragon, Worldworks and Kev's Lounge on slot bases (also by Kev's Lounge)
Vampire brides and the Count beside the Vault. The sarcophagus beside the brides is a statue base from the Egyptian Temple by Finger and Toe Models
Van Helsing and his associates inside the cemetery gates. Path, wall and gates by Fat Dragon Games, lantern by Papierschnitzel. The lantern in Professor Erskine's hand is scaled down from the Papierschnitzel set (I didn't like the one cast on the figure)
I decided to rework the graveyard wall. Fat Dragon Games Dragonshire Cemetery wall, rescaled to 80%, to fit better with my figures. Custom 65mm wide gate by Papierschnitzel, to match with new fences and tie the wall sections together. Basing is 2mm artists mounting board covered with Papierschnitzel (lightning) ground tiles. Figure from Bad Squiddo Games for scale.
I realized that the converted Mystic Mountain Vault is great for photographic purposes but not very durable for gaming and transport. I decided to substitute the Papierschnitzel Mausoleum.I still wanted both detailed interior and full access for gaming. my solution was to build the 3D version with 2mm mounting board for the laminated sections. This makes for a very solid building but it may have been wiser to miss out the layer between the door and interior. The roof lifts off to view the interior with a false floor. Taking an idea from Fat Dragon Games, I cut out the centre of the floor to accommodate the sarcophagus. The actual floor was glued to the platform, with the sarcophagus, and step, attached.
Initially a test of how easy the Papierschnitzel fences were to build, I created this family plot. The insert is removable to give the option of moving the graves to another part of the churchyard. Without the insert, it makes a very gothic dice rolling tray.
