Curious Plankton DoD 2012 WIP
« on: September 27, 2012, 08:20:51 PM »
The beginning of my entry as yet untitled...



We have an all heresy line up with:

Vincent B Ruddock
Kane
Bob Jones (a late addition)
And some robots (I'm just waiting on another body)

The next few photos will be smaller honest  :whistle:

Hopefully I will find some time in the next few weeks to so something!


Edited to make photo smaller  :D

Great to see you in the competition mate.

Those heresy sci fi figures are brilliant and so versatile for dioramas like this.

I'm really looking forwards to see what you do with them.

Looks interesting. I can already see how I would put it together.
Good to see you entering. Took me 3000+ posts before I took it up.  :lol:

Hey I recognise those models! I'm interested to see how you make use of them; good luck with your scene ;)

By the choice of minis, I'm guessing some kind of tea-break scenario.

Working on base construction at the mo. Camera issues have delayed posting pics and my phone camera is just rubbish. Hopefully sorted next week...

Yep. I think there's a couple of us on here.

Seems to be the same anywhere you go. Hang around long enough and someone else from Chesterfield turns up  :lol:

My Grandparents used to live at Wingerworth just outside Chesterfield 30 odd years ago - just upset myself by finding the house on Google - the large area of woodland we used to play in during the summer holidays is now a housing estate !  :(

Sadly much of the area is going like that :(  Although there seems to be a fair bit of brownfield development too. Still there's always the Peak District on the doorstep.

WIP photos tomorrow when I get into work (the only place I can upload at the moment).
The base it coming on nicely I think.

As promised some WIP photos. Just had chance to work on the base really but here they are:

the basic base with some self adhesive paving slabs attached. Although they aren't actually self adhesive so application of PVA is required



The basic wall, balsa, art card and some bits of takeaway box



Then more paving slabs added to this along with balsa sill and step, metal door from aluminium sheeting and a matchstick door frame



So it roughly looks like this



Paving darkened and floor boards with a first base coat



Wood primed



Other angle



Hopefully I should have time this week to get the base paint finished and work on the outside of the building... It still looks quite untidy but you get the basic idea

It's CD size for the 1 mini company category. Doesn't leave vast amounts of room for construction but I need a bit for the idea

Did some more over the weekend

Inside wall...



Outside wall...



It's actually a little further along than this but new photos needed.

Might start painting minis soon  :smile:

Looking very good - and the fact you have gone for a cafe has just altered my base idea to plan 'B'  :paranoid2:

Started on the minatures, I've not been happy with the results to be honest but I think they are starting to get there now.



Took a while to get something approaching a decent photo too, the light in our house is rubbish!

Anyway enough moaning  :roll:

The working title is now '6AM Apocalypse'

I'd better get started then  :crazy:

I like the colour choice for these guys.
