The Labyrinth & The Ruins

I finally managed to complete the labyrinth a month or two ago and I’ve just realised that I didn’t share any pictures of it. The idea, as you’ll remember, was heavily influenced by the wonderful Yggdrasillium board that came to fame a year or two ago. It’s taken me that long to put together first the shore line, then buy enough Zone Mortalis boards to finish it off. That said, it’ll be an ongoing project. You can never have enough Zone Mortalis.

In addition to the underground labyrinth, I also started putting together a smaller board to represent the surface of Seccundus. It took me a while to work out what to use as a basing material for these pieces. Then I hit upon Foamex. Foamex is used to create graphic signs and can be picked up quite cheaply at any printer’s or online. Unlike foam board it is solid all the way through, so it stays rigid and is much lighter than the equivalent width of MDF. It takes superglue and paint really readily too.

Chimera Quad launcher

So here's my latest conversion kit for the venerable Chimera. I've always liked the idea of mobile mortar batteries. Whist the Thudd Gun is great I wanted something that was mounted inside a turret of some kind.

Once I've got enough of these kits lined up I'm looking to get hold of a vacuum chamber and start trying to reproduce in resin. This one is a two part kit, it slots in neatly into the  back compartment of the Chimera.
