Great work here, Crioux!

I love the idea of the separate Wizard's Tower or as part of a more elaborate Castle set-up. Either way Stefan may go with this, I can't wait for the DF version to be released! As always, I'm quietly waiting in the bushes to pounce on the newest pre-order.

You can tell when you have used to much HA, as you read/listen to the debates of which is better Resin, Plaster, Hydrostone, Hydrocol, Dental et an take a keen intrest in it.
I love Resin, but my gosh is it expensive. So far i have used it for mostly stuff i have made the molds myself. I have as of yet (other than the clear resin) not used it in a HA mold, I am tempted oh so tempted to though on many an occasion... Becuase yeah you can crank the casting in minutes as compaired to the hours to do a plaster/cement cast.

I am about out of the last batch of resin and Hydrostone i bought back in January, mainly do to switching to a cheaper and i think better resin, than what i was using. It's less viscous, but comes out very nice, just wasn't used to the mix by weight, as compaired to volumn, and well lets say i need a bettr scale than what i was using to start with becuase there were some really messy un cured product to clean up 1 and one that looked fine for a few days then did some REALLY strange things...., once i got the mix down (remember read directions first....) i like the stuff a lot. I must order more once my job situation levels out.

Got to say i like these and ugh it makes me want to get more HA... or have DF get it out now... but i want more Sci-fi first...

oh well great look.

Crioux,

Looks great! For color match: Add more yellow for the stone color, and every occaisonal brick should be solid light brownish...the lighter and more yellowish drybrushing afterward will unite the two stone colors together...

the nice thing about this is that you can use it as part of the Mastermaze dungeon or as a freestanding outdoor tower, or attached to a castle...

Thanks for the color tips, I will try.

If you make a tower, there is the option of making halves, instead of quarters. A little less modular, but a lot more stable when stacking, never need to use the central pillar.

As for castles walls and interiors, I have some ideas too, I'll see if I can make the time to make some prototypes.

Uh-UH, Ghostmage!

I'M in the bushes on an ambush; YOU can wait behind me!! :P :P :P

Seriously, crioux, Stefan;

I hope either DF gets to work on this FAST, or crioux changes his mind about making sets for sale! I want enough for 4 levels, counting the top, that's the base, two intermediate levels, and the top.
And YES, a gatehouse with murderholes IS perfectly good!

See ya!

Way way way COOOOOOOL!!! Yes more pieces the better. Have you considered doing a larger diameter ? Something that you can even make the interior usable with DF?? Don't know how sable it would be though. I mean perhaps there could be a dowel at the same "along each side or floor" place for stacking.

Very Fine.
I would add more yellow or ochre and a touch of red to your coloring if you want to match DF color...
