Dungeon catacomb 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
So with the new GW items I picked up, not to mention the Thomarillion library stuff, it's been awhile since I used the Catacomb set. And it's one of my favorites! Problem: I only have one, and while it's extremely flexible, it doesn't have a large enough footprint to do the kind of crazy layouts I've been doing lately. So I decided to combine it with the regular dungeon pieces to make a massive catacomb. The two settings fit together very well, and the narrow dungeon pieces combine with the freestanding catacomb walls to extend the crazy claustrophobic vibe I like for a location like this.

For some of these I spiced things up with some ruin pieces, and for some I topped the whole thing with a medieval building set library. In any case -- enjoy!

I didn't take any pics of the library layout, it was kinda dull. But I did get some interesting closeups.

Anyhoo, more pics.

A few more shots. The regular dungeon walls merge very well with the firepit corners from the Catacombs.

Some of these figures are older figures from when I was just getting started painting. I've touched them up a bit where I could -- they're better than they were, but they'd be much better if I went to the trouble to strip them completely and start over...

Fantastic setup and photos, as always! This one really rocks, Law. It shows so well how DF pieces from different non matching sets can still work so beautifully together. Thanks for taking the time to show us that.

As usual, excellent job Law. All those close-up pictures make for a nice dark mood.
Take a look at the contraption on top of this creature and imagine it inside a Realm of the Ancients build. What do you think? Would it be worth a try?

Such an awesome idea!

I did a low-rent version of that, myself. The GW Stegadon is vaguely similar in design (as you know) so I bought two and built the second without his little gantry. I kept the throne as a free-standing (albeit small) throne, and I used the platform and the various hemispheres as ROTA accessories. Giant Aztec-calendar-lookin-things, they're just too fantastic not to use!

I'm sure my old ROTA pics have them in the background amid the treasure somewhere.

Very well done as always, Law. I like the mixutre of the 2 sets- makes it seem real, as if there was original construction done with one material, then expanded with other building materials sometime afterwards.

Excellent job, Law!
It confirms my imagination in that I thought all those nice Lizardmen gizmos fit well into the RotA stuff with it egyptian-like style.
Well done!
