    castle interior diorama wip

    hey! i've been mia for too long. this is one thing i've been working on for a while. it was inspired and expanded from the exclusive dungeon base i made for last years german motu con.

    i've wanted to share this for months, but wanted to wait till i had all the basic structure together.

    please lmk what you all think. thanks


    the lower right corner will have pegs to hang weapons.


    here i'm using printed stand-ins for details i intend to add in 3D later, and a lovely chair i borrowed till i build a throne.


    this is intended to be a cut-away view of part of the castle, so this is an exterior wall with vines.


    stained glass window, inspired by original tower fla


    weapon room floor with spirit of grayskull design.


    dungeon holding cell wip.


    and this in the original dungeon base i made for german con last year.


    here with a few motu classics figures...


    and here with 200X figures.

    That is wonderful. I love it. It really takes me back to how realistic and detailed the Castle's interior seemed as a kid.

    Great work Nem!!!! Such brilliant ideas you've worked into that whole piece!

    Note to all: I believe Nemesis plans to cast these! I think it will part down, so it'll cast into smaller pieces.

    i'm so pleased with the comments so far. thank you so much. i too remember that awesome feeling the original castle gave me as a child, and i wanted to really bring it to life and add some of my own ideas and re-interpretation. this thing is huge, as you can see, but i honestly wish i could have made it even larger. the nice thing about it though, is that i can always expand it... it has no jaw bridge, which i know is so important to the exterior of the castle... but my diorama has no face or front, so working in the concept of an opening just didn't seem necessary or practical.

    yes, steve is right, currently this is only placed together. there are 19 peices (so far) but nothing has been permanantly attached together. if there is enough interest, i have designed it to be replicated. time will tell.. feel free to contact me. for now i'm just having fun making it.

    Simple in design, yet stunningly detailed and beautiful. I love it.

    I think it was a good plan to skip the door. To be authentic, it would be a huge tongue on the wall! That would be hilarious, but I like what you've done more.

    Huge tongue on the wall would be great to give Battle Cat a bath! (sorry, you brought a Far Side comic to mind with the subtitle "Cat Showers")

    it's mostly foam board at the moment, the stone walls have a layer of tile that was then carved and textured for the look i wanted. i'm having fun being inventive and looking at things in a creative way. example, the stairway collumn is made of simply orange juice bottle caps. from the back, the diorama is mostly open and hollow. i'll post pics of that when i have updates.

    So what's the status on the diorama? Got more of it done and maybe got it ready for casting duplicates?

    Understand. I recently started a new job, so things have been strange/hectic a bit more than normal. Cool. What kind of support you want/need?

    in order to mold and cast something as big as this, i would need enough reliable backers to make the investment cost effective. that's really as far as i can discuss it publicly. for now this is just a one of a kind custom project. anything is possible in the future, but i can't promise anything just yet.
