Church of Dagon
« on: October 20, 2012, 05:10:54 AM »
I had finished this church a while ago, but without the graveyard.  I wanted to build something small to fit in with my urban/Innsmouth table.  I have to give most of the credit to Grim.  He totally inspired me with his Tactica board!

Nice work, Oldben1!

Looks like a nice bit of weathering there.
The atmospheric pictures are a bonus, too.

Wow awesome piece! Love it!

Nice and compact fella. It looks great. How/ what materials did you use?

The church is more Plasticville/k-line goodness.  The walls are brick sheets glued on to 1/4 inch mdf.  I was able to get some o scale grave stones and a grass mat.  I then detailed the grass with textured spray paint for the the dirt and some small pictures and posters from the net.  The side walk is picture frame matting.

Thanks for all the compliments.  This site really makes you step up your game!

I suppose I could, but you've discovered my terrible secret!  I only do the outside of buildings.  The threshold agents never make it very far in a game of Strange Aeons.

I have seen some people print wall paper designs and such for the inside, a church could be easy, glue some balsa wood to the bottom, add some pews, get a Cthulu or other Mythos style statue...you could build the pews from balsa wood also...paint the walls inside dark grey.

Wow!  I was inspired by your farm buildings to start buying Plasticville stuff.  Now I'm discouraged again thinking I can never get my church looking that good.

Was that a complete model or did you modify it?  I don't remember seeing that style Plasticville church before.  Even the windows look different.

You have to hunt around.  The first building I ever bought was Plasticville, but there are tons of other companies out there selling O scale stuff.  K-line and Lionellville have some plasticville looking buildings.  There is also Marx.  Most of it is on eBay or try web-sites like trainz or Walther.  If you need some help Black Cavalier just pm me.

The church is from k-line.  I had been eyeing it at a hobby store for 4 years.  The owner laughed when I bought it.  She never thought she would be able to get rid of it because it was discontinued.  It is one solid structure.  I bought it because it looked timeless.  I've seen it on eBay a lot.

It's surprising how little these cost. The unpainted stuff I've gotten from JR Miniatures is US $22 for a really underdetailed, but reasonably large structure like their mosque.  I think this model train stuff is actually quite a bit more apropos as well.

God love this site. Lots of great ideas and great work to look at and fiendishly copy. :)

This would probably make a better Masonic Dagon hall.  I spied it a couple of years ago but thought it was too big.
