Take me to... the volcano!!! 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
This idea sorta grew up organically once I decided I wanted a jungle layout for my newly painted GW lizardmen. I had some aquarium plants lying around that I figured I would use with the cavernous river pieces to make an Amazon basin kinda locale.

Then I threw in bits from the woodland set, the ROTA set, the regular dungeon set, the ruins set, some of WA3, some old Hirst Arts pieces I had (from a defunct company called Mystic Moldworks that made awesome vine-and-fungus encrusted jungle pieces), some Mage Knight accessories.... it just kinda exploded.

And then I realized -- VOLCANO. I decided to use the Hellscape sets (both of 'em!) to add some real local color.

And behold -- VOLCANO. There are many pics, so I'll add more when I can. And I plan to tinker with this, changing it up and showing off different ideas as I find the time.

A few more. I particularly like the "spawning pool," since this is the best use I've come up with for the whirlpool...

A few more. There are some close-ups of the spawning pool, including a swap-out with a Hellscape piece for a "throw them into the volcano!" moment. Although, to be fair, we'd need a larger "lava pool" piece for this REALLY to work... hint, hint!

Awesome!
Particularly like:
- how you have built up the volcano.
- The Whirlpool incorporated within the building structure.
- All those plants look great and make the scene!
- Blue Lizard men. (I have a blue and a green faction that war with each other all the time!)

Brilliant photo's. (Never can be too many!)
Thank you for sharing. Real food for thought.

WOW! I love this setup. So many things to say:

- Seamless integration of several different sets. Using Hellscape for a volcano is inspiring!

- The plant life instantly establishes this as a tropical forest setting

- Great paint jobs and color selections on the lizardmen. When deciding on color schemes for minis I'm often torn between a preference for bright colors and a desire to make the minis look realistic. For lizardmen, especially in an Amazon setting, the bright colors seem perfectly realistic. Hmmm.. maybe the boss lizardman even has poisonous skin.

- Great POV pictures...as dandare said there can never be too many :)

Thanks for sharing!

This setup is very nice. Lots of good ideas.

Can you tell me from where those pieces are coming from?
(the ark, this kind of star gate, the altar and also the beetle)

Thanks everyone! I really like how this came out. More pics as soon as I can.


The accessories in that pic are as follows:

The throne and "stargate" are both from the GW lizard men stegadon. The gold dais is just a repainted floor tile from Realm of the Ancients. The red turtle shell is a shield from the lizard men saurus warriors set.

Glad people like my jungle!
