The sun rises on the fortress of the fortress of the Cloud Giants. Our heroes have still not breached the the main keep!
'C'mon Reg wots the old up?'
'Well the Ram keeps bringing back the bloody stick! I mean who knew it could fly'
'It had flaming wings! though they might given you a clue. So ow did you get rid of it?'
'I told it there was a cat sneaking round the back door.'
'nice! .... so now wots the old up'
'Its this high and mighty.... Saltor?, Maltar? Shmeltor? or sumit, cant understand half of wot he is sayin'
'Just ask for directions to the nearest tavern I need to go'
'Go? go where Fred?'
'Go go! you know, if we don't find a tavern soon its gonna be raining down below!'

Tune in next week to see if our heroes can communicate with this mighty Sorcerer, will the Ram bring Reg a new cat. Will Fred be able to prevent the golden deluge that is threatening the peaceful inhabitants of Valoria.
As a final post from the clan on this now defunct thread we felt we should tell our fellow DooFers what happened to our indomitable heroes Fred and Reg :)

'Hey Fred his name is Zaltar!'
'Zaltar what kind of poncy wizardy name is that?'
'what!? .... don't let him hear you or we might end up as sheep again'
'Bugger that, the smell of mint sauce still makes me shudder'
'Anyway he says there is a garderobe round the back of the keep'
'No its ok'
'What do you mean its ok?'
'No Reg its ok'
'Fred.....?'
'wot Reg?'
'Why has that cloud got a golden streak?'
'oh has it? no idea how that happened, no... none at all'
'Bloody hell Fred lets get out of here before it rains'

These look really gorgeous! I bet they create great atmosphere with the lights off.

"Oldent you need to sack your architect, that pillar is all to cock - did you contract it out to Edifis? "

:lol: I always enjoy your comments, RabbitBurner.
I needed to tune up my wire cutter and practice with the template cutter.A new wire,spring and a true fence and guide hole for the wire took care of it.

Image

I added a bar for the Guide slot to the Shifting Lands template to prevent it from shifting in my Avalon wire table. The template was for a Proxxon cutter.

Image

I should be able to get better precision from the cutter with a better fence.I was getting frustrated with foam and considered MDF. The second Hall of Khazad Dum would be too heavy constructed from Hydrocal or wood.I will use the hexagons for a Halloween display.

Back to the subject of lighting.
I usually make an effort to hide the light sources in displays and dioramas. For role playing games consider using theater style lighting.Watch for interesting pumpkin lights during Halloween. I also use Lemax spotlights.
I also have a small smoke generator for fog effects.

We are playing with some lighting effects on a little Erinthor mountain build. Do you use any colored lights to create different moods in your games?
Image
We don't as yet but have plans and KS lights on their way soon, expect to combine with a Fog monster to get some eerie effects

BTW you should get some fog on that build would look so cool with the bottom obscured with the peaks poking through and with those lights would look amazing we think.

Great build btw :)

Cant anyone else see what is wrong with this Diorama?

Oldent you need to sack your architect, that pillar is all to cock - did you contract it out to Edifis? (more British humour and obscure Asterix reference .....again very funny)

Always a joy to see your pictures, some great mods and use of everyday tools to enhance your builds, some of which are breathtaking and we get a small insight into the wise and wonderful mind of Oldent ;)

How much dwarvenite is recycled?
People only recycle things they aren't using anymore, so we hope they never need to recycle the Dwarvenite!

Today's fan build was done by Dean Krahn. Here are a few pics from his players trip through the Amber Temple in Curse of Strahd. Thank you Dean!
Nice sprawling build :)

'few pics' ? are we missing some ?

Some more would be fab as there is plenty to see.

It also seems that Dwarvenite is recycled through eBay.
You are right, I missed a few pics, will add to original post!
