When I first started coming back to the forum here again on a regular basis a couple of months ago, i somehow kept bypassing this section of the forum. I saw mention elsewhere of the Diorama of Doom entries but figured the contest was ending soon and didn't really pay attention to what it was about. Well, now that I know more of the details and also know that the deadline is Halloween, I realized I had the perfect project already planned and the contest just gives me more impetus to get it done.
As some of you know, I'm also into Model Railroading, and the local train club whose displays are located in an restored train depot built in 1922 has allotted me space for my S Gauge. I've already built the table and put down a basic loop of track on some bare foam until I finish the planning and implement the terrain. I've been wanting to do a special scene for halloween for every year but haven't had enough minis in the scale for the HO table (15-20mm) to do a proper halloween train table. Because S Gauge or American Flyer Gauge is the equivalent of 25mm, the miniatures may look slightly large but will fit in close enough. Since part of my table is going to be a small town main street, my diorama will consist of an invasion of the supernatural from zombies and ghouls to demons and vampires upon sleepy small town america.
EDIT: I have started a thread in the Colouring In Area for my diorama and moved the shots of my blank slate there.
