BSC2023 Vanvlak's Highway shrine
« on: January 25, 2023, 06:43:10 PM »
Let's start this one with a short story. A couple of weeks ago, after setting the poll up, I was walking to work when I found some parts of a wrecked toy excavator in the road, which must have dropped off a car. I collected them with the vague idea that the kids' toy theme was a contender in the poll to find a topic.

Sigh.

Not to worry though. I'll use it as the basis of my Highway shrine, which will not exactly be a shrine on the side of a highway, but one travelling on it.
Itching to start now, even though I can 'see' the build in my head except for one detail - whatever it is that will make it a shrine, not a reconstituted excavator!

I love the idea of fhe wrecked toy. I'm probably going to find some way to incorporate each of the failed themes into my board too.

Are you doing classic Mad Max desert or something different?

Something 'Sacred' e.g. in the second Planet of the Apes film they worshiped
an Atomic Bomb.

Good luck with this.

That would be a very cool idea tbh. I get some Mad Max vibes from this as well. Good luck! :)

The atomic bomb idea is cool, but I have something else in mind, because yesterday I found my inspiration in the same road at exactly the same place. This is now getting weird: is my shrine going to be a gateway for some other-dimensional god?  :o

I am planning something halfway between Mad Max and Necromunda, with a light touch of cyberpunk if possible: in other words, it will be absurd  :D :D

Sounds like a bit barmy, by which I mean inspired  :D

Good luck mate!

Pity about the toy build - the highway to hell?

I have a strong feeling that the toy will feature.
I think the highway IS hell  :D
