Hi all, I have been thinking about making a set of ruined ancient buildings for a long time now and have decided to go for it, this is my first go at building something that hopefully should look ok when done,
I have loads of ideas about building things similar to the acropolis in athens but think i should start a little smaller, Im going to try a mausoleum first , something like this
I need loads of columns, porticos, urns and other greek/roman looking bits and pieces to add character, are there any suppliers you can recommend for these bits? I had a look through the suppliers list in sticky but drew a blank,
Any tips or advice greatfully recieved
Have you thought about using molds? If so may I recommend the Hirst Arts Molds, they can be a little expensive but if your going for an on going theme they would make their money back.
Hirst Arts Mold Page, for a roman theme. Cool thing is he also teaches how to make molds if you happen to sculpt one yourself.
I had a look at the site, some nice kits there.
I checked Hobby haven but they dont have much, they have wedding cake columns but are about £8 for 4 so too much ( I need about 40 for the whole board)
so have used wooden dowells to get me started, hopefully should have the first building built by the week end , and painted the week after,
will try to get up some pics
got some photos but having trouble getting them inserted into a reply, I'm clicking on the insert image icon but then it prompts me to enter a URL, also images are 2.5mb is this too big, how do i down size them or does this happen automaticaly?
help needed for a noob poster
Cant help with the photo problem - only just worked out how to post photos myself sorry. LINKA, a now defunct company, used to produce some excellent moulds that might be useful if you can find them on Ebay or something similar.
My only advice would be to go back to your original plan and try a small temple or something first. I built a whole castle with moulded Linka kits, it took me years, it was not very useful, and it got terminally damaged during a house move. Unless you have a permanent, large room to keep it in, this project could easily become very expensive and painful.
I'm not trying to put you off, hope you dont get that impression. I would love to see the finished thing. But if i put the same cash and time into my marines as i did that castle, i would now have a complete chapter.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
not quite what i hoped for,
you can tell i dont use a computer to make a living
Looking good, cool combination materials. Only thing I might say, if it isn't glued yet, try straightening out the columns.
That looks good, getting paint to stick to a vinyl ball is going to be fun! a good automotive primer is probable the best shot!
