My Evil Underdark Thomarillion Library 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
Crazy Herald`s library is in my opinion the coolest project/thread I have ever seen on this forum. For the past 10 months, I have been painting my own Bookshelves from Thomarillion during spare times. Something like 150 hours of painting later, this is what I got. I aimed at a painting scheme slightly darker than what crazy herald did. I`m not a painter as talented as he is (my highlights are far more crude) but I`m quite satisfied with the final product. Please understand that I lack the proper photography skills and material.

A truly beautiful setup. You did a great job painting the bookshelves! I liked the dragon head on the one shelf!

Dude! That's awesome!

I've always been convinced that the DoE couldn't really be "accessorized" into anything other than a big empty series of rooms, but you've shown me the error of my ways. (I, too, was convinced into buying some Thomarillion bookshelves by CrazyHerald's awesome library -- good thing, too, because the plaster Thomarillion stuff I had before I moved all got wrecked by the move, so I'm happy to have the sturdier resin recasts now)

I really like the paint job you went with, and the other accessories you've used work really well. Is that little round table with the maps also Thomarillion? It doesn't look like one the DF round tables, but maybe I'm just missing something. And I love the DoE pyramid in the middle -- leeching dark energy from these sinister tomes, no doubt....

I have also undertaken building my own library (although much smaller than this magnificent set-up).
I am in good company here.

Your painting skills are superb! Very daring mix up of literacy & evilness..

Thanks for the nice comments!

Law, The round table is simply from the DF Tavern Accessory Set.
On it stands:
a Thomarillion map
a Thomarillion candleholder
and a silver coin pile from the old DF Treasure Set

Great Job! Your library looks great. I know what you mean about painting. I have 2 library sets and a few extra pieces, total almost 60 pieces. I "cheated" by airbrushing the whole set brown and then painting on top of it. I did not do the shading as you did but I did do some other touches. I can tell you it took forever.

Beautiful!! I applaud the time and effort you spent. Your results are wonderful. And using Den of Evil to showcase the library is sheer evil genius!! Great job Biowizard!

Another amazing project biowizard! The painting and setup are both great. As others have commented, the use of DoE for this setup is both creative and very effective in creating an eerie atmosphere. I love all the little books and scrolls lying about, my favorite being the map table. The level of detail you were able to achieve in painting the maps is impressive.
