Hm, Chaos Dwarfs can't take Giants, can they? As sad as it sounds, but intended to have him sit on a shelf and jealously watch my progress with my other armies... ^^

So far as I know Chaos Dwarfs cannot have giants but I think it's ok if you field it in a friendly game. I do not think your opponent refuses... but if he is blind! Wink

There should be plenty of shops on the internet offering that kind of resin. Just google "casting resin" or something. It might also be available in artist supplies shops.

Update: Artisans VIII Entry - Floating Darklands Watchtower

Aaaalright, since voting is over and everyone guessed already (I think I need to try a totally different colour range next time! LOL) I am happy to reveal my entry.
The great thing with this one is that I was able to pull the original concept trough practically from day one of the announcement till shortly before the deadline, without a lot of rethinking of the idea or different construction than planned. The only thing I was quite unsure of up to the last week was the design of the roof.. but I'm happy with the final result.

I wanted a round tower on a piece of soil that floats above a pool of lava and is chained down so it won't fly away (dark magic tends to be fickle after all ^^). As a basic size for the tower I used an empty DVD and divided it in 8 segments, I then measured how large one block of stone would need to be.

The most time-consuming part of the whole project was casting the ashlar, something around 40-45 pieces or so, which were needed for the whole thing. I sculpted a slightly rounded block with structured surface and pulled a mould of it. The idea was to have a mean looking dawi'zharr face sculpted on each block, but it looked too weird so I opted to use the face only on every second block and made another mould for the ashlar with the face removed.

I cast the first few pieces in resin but then gave a different material a try - "Marresin", which is a plaster-like material that needs to be mixed with water at a 2:1 ratio and will set within about 10-15 minutes. It's also quite a bit lighter and harder in the end - and ridiculously cheap when compared to resin, at a mere EUR 2.90 / kilogram. It needs a few days to fully dry though, so I cast lots of them on each weekend to stay on schedule.







As it turned out I was not nearly as precise as I thought when I calculated / measured the size of one ashlar. In the end I had to do a lot of gap filling and also cut some of the stones on the upper rows to get a full circle. But that irregular, somewhat aged / weathered look was what I had been aiming for anyway, so it was not a bad thing. Happy

The lava pool was made with several layers of Citadel water effects which as it turned out does not get really hard and I squished quite a few nicely sculpted bubbles when I accidentally got with my fingers into that thing. I used a filler to sculpt the surface of the "foam" landscape - one of the assets of having moved into a new appartment recently was that I had a large amount of DIY stuff lying around.





The uppermost floor and the stone pillars were made using FIMO and for the roof I used an air-drying lightweight modelling clay. The surface structure was made in the same way as the metal on my Shatterer Beast, making dents into the material while still soft with my pen.



The sculpted 'brass' bull's heads that hold the roof were a last-minute addition after I had *finally* figured out how the roof would be shaped. My very last silicone went into the mould for these, then I just had to complete the casts with horns from some chaos bitz and defiler masks. Apart from the door which is an "Advanced Heroquest" piece I used few but essential other GW bitz, like the chaos star and skull, the spikey additions to the top and the pillars and the flame braziers from a friend's corpse cart sprue.

Painting was pretty straightforward, I first painted the lava pool and base, then fixed the tower forever on an IKEA screw, painted the tower with several layers of drybrushing and weathering powders, then added the chains and painted the final details. The roof remains detachable, I want to be able to put some blunderbussers on top after all!

Nuff said, here is the final piece in all its glory. Happy Cheers!

Very nicely done, and well deserved. I'm especially fond of your choice for the roof, as it's a very visible component that heightens the appeal Wink

Great contribution.

All I'm gonna say: BAH!!

Also, its not the choice of colours that gave you was, Ishkur, but the texture of beaten metal. Very nicely done, and that's what gave it away. Next time you'll have to make a really crappy entry - just quit trying so hard, or make one with your feet. Happy
