Amazing! I've been a fan of many of your custom pieces, but when I saw the rotating wall I was blown away. I can only imagine the look on your players' faces when the wall started moving of its own accord.

Thanks for sharing.

That game looked like great fun. The rotating idol is a awesome. I may have to steal that idea. And I particularly liked the "spider bots." I had an 8-bit flashback looking at them!

Thanks thebigteacher. I'm planning to do a tutorial at some point, but it'll probably be more of an overview on some of the pieces I customized. I'm curious - did the Youtube videos work for you? I had problems getting them to play correctly.

Thanks,

Hey Richens,

First off amazing work! I too would LOVE a tutorial or at least some insight on how you created the torches as well as the spinning wall!

Thanks for sharing =)

Many thanks to everyone who posted all the positive comments. I sincerely appreciate it.

This project took a long time and a lot of patience to complete, but I'm glad I did it. And I'm equally glad it's done. I posted some info about the construction on my blog if anyone is interested. I didn't go into extreme detail because it would take way too long to write it all and it's already an extremely long entry (I did however go into a bit more detail on the flickering torch pieces because there was a lot of interest in them).

Project Codename: Tears, Sweat, and Blood

Just an FYI, there are a LOT of pictures and a brief video showing a teardown of the setup. If you have a slow internet connection, it might take a while to load. I hope you enjoy it and find some inspiration.

Here are a some pictures:

about the time i reached the console wiring I think my brain said
"why are you even trying to fake like you know what's going on here? i know you dont have a clue"

Great stuff man. I am waiting to do something similar with torches myself. I will have to compare my plans with yours after.

Your wiring skills are off the hook though. great work

Thanks for posting the write up on the work you did! The initial presentation was inspiring, but this really helps get the gears turning so to speak...

I understand the frustration of an 8 month project, its not easy to get the time to tinker. Glad you toughed it out though, it is a pleasure seeing the results of your skills and effort.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

...and I thought my use of LEDs in my crystal clusters were "advanced". Hats of to you for an amazingly challenging project and a dedicated execution.

Richens,

Awesome Job on all. I am going to be "that guy" who throws out the question of would you consider a commission to do another Stained Glass window?

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone.

dartagnan4 - Thanks for the interest on the stained glass window. Unfortunately, I don't think I want to get into commission work at this time. I won't rule it out completely though. Maybe at some point in the future...? If so, I'll let you know. Sorry!
