Urgent! Report! Operation: Colonize has failed! Repeat: Op-zcchh! 5 Years, 2 Months ago  
Is anyone receiving this? Is anyone out there? Our attempts to colonize Planetoid 001138 have failed! Repeat -- Operation: Colonize has failed! Planetoid 001138, a.k.a. Hotel Alpha Delta Echo Sierra is NOT capable of sustaining human life!

Our terraforming measures were not able to maintain adequate breathable atmosphere, and the constant planet quakes have prevented us from maintaining consistency in even the most basic environmental controls. The methane and carbon monoxide atmosphere, which ever produces torrential downpours of sulfuric acid -- the rivers of molten lava which no efforts to dam have stemmed -- the electric firestorms... it has proven too much!

Our power is rapidly failing, and communications have been intermittent at best. Hopefully someone is receiving this. If you are, send an evac team immediately! Come down to the co-ordinates I am transmitting! I don't know how much longer we can -- what was that?

Another firestorm! The power won't last! And a planet quake is --- oh, Lord, please -- !! Is anyone receiving this!!?"

EXTRACTION SUCCESSFUL! Words cannot describe the hostility of this terrain, nor the strangeness of the foe we encountered there. The last bastion of man lay waiting in the ruins of a smoke and ash covered outpost, and we fought gallantly and fiercely until the last man was aboard the craft. It is finished. Do not ask me to speak of it again....

YES!!!


great story. and the images look awesome. that's what I thought these two set would look like together.it's perfect, the oozing effect is very nice too.

Thanks for posting these images. This is exactly what I want to do too.








I just need some more money, anyone want to donate to the 'give Ron some Dwarven forge sets' charity. it's very worthwhile charity I guarantee 100% of all funds donated go to needy Ron's

Thanks! I really love this look, too (obviously). It's funny, I originally thought of all the cool things I could do with demons in Hellscape, and I thought of how I'd use it with MBS -- but I'm finding myself doing a lot more SF stuff with it.

Here's a pic from the SW session that I didn't post -- it really shows off the combo well, I think.

I did have a question about the "conversion flow" piece. in the picture it looks like the top of conversion flow is flush with the rest of the hellscape, did you raise the rest of the helscape pieces to achieve that look or are the Hellscape pieces a little taller than other Dwarven forge set's

I thought the conversion pieces would look more like speed bumps, and that the rest of the hellscape sets would be the same height as other Dwarven Forge sets.

The height should be approximately the same, remember, each piece is cast by hand...but the conversion flows are REALLY thin...you can cheat a little by putting like a folded piece of paper under the Hellscape piece to raise it just a hair so that the flow piece is perfect...but it's not really needed...
