I'm very impressed with that. Where is the patriarch model from? Space Hulk box or just a regular GW creation.

Super painting on the Magus robes Suber! The weathering on the mining tank is amazing too. Great collection mate.

Cheers
Matt

Thank you all! The basic shape and stuff is quite simple, but the details took longer than the room itself.

Might I suggest a bit more dirt, darkness and detritus in the corners?

You are totally right, now that you mention, it looks quite obvious to me. Thank you, I'll solve that!

It's the one from the Overkill box:



I cut it at the waist and made some greenstuff work on all the belly to make him fat and bloated like the old model ::)

It's taken me some time, but I have a second room for my Genestealer dungeon ;D. I wanted to use the rest of the Hobbit core box scenery, so I needed to build a proper space. Foam board and 1 Kg of Das (yes, I used a full kilo set ;D)




You will see it better with some paint on...



The idea is having a large hall with small caverns around, where the Genestealers and the Hybrids dwell and hide from the Imperial society on the surface until the moment arrives.



Next stage was painting the wooden platforms:



This is the basic disposition:




Unfortunately I don't have all the rubbish I would have liked to deploy in my bits box. Well, less is more:




"I told you to take that other turn"


I don't know how I am going to store them :?



Anyway, two rooms make a dungeon :D

I have more plans and silly ideas; still to prove if they are achievable though ;D

Love them Suber.. I hope you have big storage space for them and do much more.
Although I would do them sans one wall for better gaming visibility and display potential.
You could have backgrounds for many Lead Painter League rounds :P

That's rather cool  8)

Got a definite 'warren' look about it.

Love it!

That is a great use of that Hobbit scenery.
It makes me wonder what I did with mine......

Got to agree with the comment above though

They would be better having a open/removable wall

Thank you!
I really want the rooms to have four walls when possible. I pretend the dungeon to be immersive, oppressive; that the Space Marine player feels suffocated, as you might expect from a Space Hulk :D. I will necessarily have to break the fourth wall (quite literally) for some of the rooms I have in mind, but I'll build the four walls whenever it is feasible. I believe that the fact of having the platforms and caves both sides in this large room reflects the atmosphere I want to achieve.
I'd like to explore the 3D aspect and build an abandoned mine/catacombs/whatever with two or three levels, but that involves a degree of planification I haven't even started yet to think about! :D
