Thanks snitcythedog! Storage is a challenge for me like it is for many, so I am glad when i remember to address it at the start of a project, rather than (as has been the case in the past) only considering the issue once the project is complete!

Here is a bit of an update.


The ground floor room is nearly there, just need to add some things to the shelf and table.


I tried to make a rough stone block texture for the stairs and the cellar below. It turned out a bit cruder than I had envisaged if I am honest, although I had not used milliput in this way before and I was in a bit of a hurry. Some of it will be covered by furniture anyway.


I want to add a light source and here is an picture of what I am thinking of (clearly fantasy dungeon rather than actual 19th century cellar, but it is a nice simple shape!). Let me know if you have any better ideas!


Next will be the tunnel level, and here is a picture for inspiration. I will be collecting twigs from the garden and park today for props!

Thanks Blackwood and McMordain.  I think it is going ok so far (it is hard to tell as I  I am making most of it up as I go along!) but it is dawning on me that the fact that it is "2.5D" (as Burgundavia put it) rather than fully 3D means that the quality of the paint job will be key to making it look good.

I did not end up making a lantern as I noticed fellow LAFer Wyrmalla was selling an interesting selection of lamps, lanterns and candles on his sale thread in the Bazaar of Obscurities. These arrived very promptly and safely and will be used to dress the lair.


I have also found a Reaper Bones rat, who will be another lair inhabitant, and I have made a metal trap door for the cellar.


The ground floor room has progressed a bit further. Still need a rug, and possibly curtains and something on the table.


The cellar now has a floor.


And the tunnel section has been propped. I think this section will be accessed by rope ladder.

There is a hole in the floor of this section as an obstacle for adventurers to navigate.

This one is so cool! Especially the storability factor which is an issue for me too.

The 2.5d reminds me of the really old gw rogue trooper space marine displays mcvey did.  Great work, looking forward to seeing the results.

Already looking like a serious contender - love the story that each room is beginning to tell

Thanks for the encouragement guys!

Not much of an update, I have just applied the texture to the walls of the final level which will be a sort of natural cavern.

I did, however, feel a distracting urge to paint a figure, and I realised as my build is vaguely inspired by a story about Russian vampires I ought to have a Russian hero to investigate it. I got this chap in a mixed bag of metal Napoleonic figures on eBay and I am now in the process of painting him up as Sergeant Popov, holder of the Order of the Silver Halberd Fourth Class.

The Order of the Silver Halberd is a secret award given to those who have defended the Tsar's Empire against other-worldly creatures and is broadly equivalent to the perhaps more well known British Silver Bayonet. Recipients of the Order are presented with a halberd tipped with real silver which as well as looking jolly smart on parade also makes it a more effective weapon with which to tackle rogue Werebears. In preparation for his current mission our brave Sergeant has left nothing to chance.  After washing the blade with holy water, he then polished it to a mirror-like finish before carefully coating the point in some of his Aunt Olga's famously potent garlic sauce.

I hope to get a chance to progress both the lair and the Sergeant this coming weekend.

I have added a few details.

What is in the cupboard?


Some spikes to catch anyone who fails to jump the gap:


I think there is someone at the window!


A captive. The chains are probably unnecessary now. I made this chap from a plastic skeleton from the Frostgrave Undead Encounters set. The figure was designed to be bursting from the ground which meant that: a) repositioning their skeletal arms was exceedingly fiddly; and b) the figure has no hips or legs. Maybe they have fallen off and been carried away by the rats? Or maybe I need to acquire/create some?


And I made a bucket for my well.
