DF Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Build 8 Years, 9 Months ago  
Here’s a concept using only a “skeleton-type" setup to allow for easy access to levels during play.





I left out most of what I guess you’d call exterior walls so again there can be easy access to the passages and levels. It also allows for a cool uncluttered hallway skirmish.



“HEY! You two can’t fight in here…this is the War Room"





A lift could lend to some interesting P.C. mishaps…



“Captain, I am currently tracking one-hundred inbound Soviet I.C.B.M.’s"



“Get me S.A.C. on the line; I want conformation from one of our birds before we go starting WWIII"



“Hostile inbounds confirmed sir….Launch code complete" “Turn keys to upright position."



"On my mark, three, two, one Launch!"





What’s the damage dice of an I.C.B.M. anyway? :lol:

IO!!

STOP THAT!!

Damn. EVERY time I think I can relax and stop worrying about what you're going to do THIS TIME, you go and create ANOTHER masterpiece!

WOW!!

Freak me OUT!

That is just incredible, man. Law called it right, the liftoff looks great. How did you do the launch, flight stands again? Whatever you did, it's close enough to real for MY gaming table, that's for DAMN sure!

Where did you get the Titan/Minuteman (whichever one it is) model to cut up? And how did you put it back together, pins? Glue? Duct tape?

After all, duct tape is like the Force; it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the Universe together.

Fantastic, just fantastic.

See ya!

PHEW!!!
What out for the booster wash!

IO, you are [i][u]INCREDIBLE!!!![/i][/u]
I truly am going to have to find the money to go to GenCon-Indy despite all of my medical outlays.
Shaking your hand and saying, "Thank you!", is becoming a priority.
Your creativity and imagination is boundless.
It is a shame that your pocketbook is not as well.
Think folks, what wonders he could show us if it was!

I love the two Grendel cargo hatches as silo doors.
They work so well as such.

This is a set-up that the Grendel ladders actually work well in.
(my thought before was of the ladders had to be one of the most useless bits of terrain any company had ever made)

This set-up even gives decent use for the 1.5" Grendel hatches. (talk about creativity!)

I am not sure which derricks you are using here IO.
Are they DP9's?

I LOVE the lift!
Did you use computer-printable sticker paper to get the warning stripes on the SF floor piece you are using as the lift?

BTW, where did you get your safety rails?
I have seen them in multiple set-ups and I like them better than the ones I have.

All of the Grendel terrain, that you invested in, took the time to paint and now use, works beautifully in this Dwarven Forge set-up IO.
Scotia-Grendel may have a serious increase in sales in 2006 all thanks to you.

What’s the damage dice of an I.C.B.M. anyway? :lol:
I would imagine several D100s.

Thank you IO for sharing with us so many cool set-ups.
I am sure you have been an inspiration to far more than just a couple of us.
Thank you for agreeing to go to GenCon.
I hope to see you and the others there in August.

Sometimes the poorhouse dudebird, as long as it is your poorhouse, is truly worth it and can be quite fun.
That is, as long as it is your poorhouse, not the bank's or the government's.

THAT'S why I'm waiting for the Infernal Revenue Service to pay back the loan I gave them all through 2005!

Too bad I can't charge THEM interest!

Foxman, you are AT LEAST 100% right about IO's Incredible setups.

We may have to force a name change on him, from Invincible to INCREDIBLE; I know it's not usually Politically Correct, or kosher, or good 'Net manners, to even suggest changing someone's user name by force, but in this case, it would be even MORE highly descriptive of this man's talents and skills.

Of course, if I don't SHUT UP, we may never get a hat on him again, but then again, deserved praise usually doesn't cause cranial swelling anyway, does it?

See ya!

IO,

That setup is sooooo good, it really is beyond description.

I would like to mention though, that your innovative idea of leaving-out some of the outer walls, (for greater access and viewing) is another awesome idea!

Thanks for all of the great ideas and innovations posted recently. They're appreciated!

My f'in head hurts from looking at all of your cool setups. I quit. <g>

is way too cool for words.
