Thank you all so much, but I get a lot of ideas from everyone here.

I have to take off till later today, but I'm shocked at the lack of questions or specifics.
Not one Wormtongue comment yet. ;) Hmmm :? :?:

Somebody send a link to Nate and Stefan. :lol: jk

Yes, astolat. I had this ready to post then it got held up by your post, so it gives me a chance to answer.
I will be taking it down in steps (with pictures), but I have a few weeks of plans to modify the upper area scenes a few times. I have a few evil ideas to introduce into the celebratory feeling of the Stepwell, not ALL will die, but...
I also plan to upload more pictures here and a bunch the higher-rez pictures on Imgur. I apologize, I am unable to get it all done today, (1) because I still need to change layout, then take pictures and resize them and (2) I have limited internet with up/down-load restrictions on a satellite connection. Just stay tuned. ;)

Honestly there is some gratuitous multiple posting on multiple threads and a little annoyed we had already waxed lyrical on the other thread.

But bollocks to that this build is worthy of many threads and much waxing :D

49 bunnies on their knees worshipping their new build god - all hail William
We are not worthy.

going through these pictures we have changed our view - we assumed it was an ancient stepwell now used for water sliding, bathing recreational purposes, now we see it as a ritual sacrifice to the Shark god Gnasher as we now see the watersliders are the tortured figures from the Reaper tree of misery (thanks astolat for the confirmation).

The use of the grand stairs as a flying buttress is truly breathtaking

Here have another golden carrot :)

William, this is completely beyond epic, and I could flail about it in a million different ways, so instead I am going to start by gleefully wriggling over how you've used the poor tortured figures from the Reaper tree of misery as the happy waterslide users. \o/ <-- unusually applicable emoticon

I'm sure it must be taking up an inordinate amount of space, but before you tear it down, if you had the energy and time, I would really love if you turned this into like, a "building masterclass" thing where you repost photos of one section of it and break down in more detail how you built that part. It deserves more than a single posting! I want to keep "visiting" it for a while and imagine games set in it. :D

And if by any chance you could post higher-res photos somewhere, I would love to look at it blown up across my entire screen.

I don’t know HOW I missed this for so long, but oof! There’s epic builds and then there’s EPIC. BUILDS.

That underwater effect is just breathtaking. And I love the use of the Bridge of Valor roof on the DoD arch piece - it’s like it was meant to be! All very clever.

Truly one for the ages.

Me reading the introductory post: These images are great, but there's no way any build is going to live up to the hype these are instilling.

Me seeing the build: Holy ****, this is exceeding all my expections...

Amazing build! I agree with AnimeSensei; Sorn level build here, man. Absolutely fantastic.

I say this is all honesty here.

You have a Sorn level build here.

Insanely awesome. Hands down top 3 diorama build on these forums. Thanks for the time and effort to build it.

I bow to your awesomeness! How much resin and what type did you use? Did you have any curing issues? Wow, this is just exceptional.
None, it's a 3'x4' sheet of 1/8" plexyglass (it spans past both sides almost a foot) and a green colored cellophane sheet (see-thru wrapping paper) set on top. That's it.

Thanks - no bowing necessary. ;)
