Throne Room... Kinda 8 Years, 7 Months ago  
Back when i got those Anisty "flower petal" consules i knew i wanted to do a throne room set up at one point. But my biggest complaint with the Anisty stuff is well it's not the right scale, so after a lot of time with a dremel... and some Crazy glue i now have them mounted on a DF style floor piece. And they look better and are much more in scale...

This set up is very off, i only have with me a few bits (the rest is stored where we play), a little over one room one set, and a few odds and ends like the 4x6 from Alpha, and a few pasage peices so i had to kind of make do with what i had... I didn't even have any doors to make a turbo lift :(

But i was having some fun and trying to paint the Anisty to look like DF and the consules from the Throne room at the same time, they aren't perfect but i like them....

Becuase i had so little stuff, the upper level is resting on Platformer, which unfortunitally becuase of the connectors made it very uneven, the Throne/Chair is a massively cut down item from Grendel, and the stairs are from Orbital.

Wow -- that came out looking great! That's pretty much spot on!

I couldn't believe the stairs were Orbital -- they didn't look like cardstock to me at all. And I think you did a great job painting the consoles -- they match the originals VERY well.

That middle pic is just about perfect. Great, great looking stuff.

I am happy with them, but man it took some work getting them mounted and painting them, i had debated doing them all black (and did two) more that style, but the silver look more in line with the DF sets.

I Almost cut off one side of the Orbital stairs so the handrails would not be in the middle, but Darn those are a Pain in the butt to put together. The first try came out horrible, but after some practice the next ones were very good and now i have 4 made, cutting two down would have been painfull to do, so i left them.

Your base conversions on Ainsty's Base Camp Reception Desks look good GS.
I am still looking to do a serious order to Ainsty; last Spring's fell apart with the guys; did not want to pay all of the S&H myself.
Silly me!

Keep up the good work GS.

Rabid--bummer about getting stiffed (or almost getting stiffed) for the shipping. I had a group try that on me once before. Told them, "Well, looks like nobody's getting anything then."

Ghengis--cool pics. I like the stairs. Where did you pick those up from? Did you scratch build them or were they from a toy/train/play set of some sort?

Dante, they are paper, but darn sturdy for paper/Card stock products, they are pretty tricky but well worth the effort

They were put out by, possibly a now defunct, company (Stones-Edges), in the Sci-Fi set Orbital, you can find it at RPGNow, under card stock terrain. But it may be gone now i remember hearing that it was being retired, (the guy who did it Eric has moved on to other projects but is now doing free card stock from swminiatures.com), it really was a nice set in my mind, the scale is a bit off, it was designed with Hero Clix style figures in mind (being 1.5 inch squares) but even at that scale it is not to far off, and can look pretty good.

So those stairs are paper. Great. I think the paint is great. are the to look like the carbonite freezer on the cloud city? I've not seen it for a few months so can't remember. for some reason they make me think of that room.

GhengisSka,

Great Job on the Consoles! And also on the Throne. (Any Chance of getting a Close up of that?

Also though it may seem Minor, I have to Say that Your Use of a Printed Floor is Excellent too... And a really good Example of Where the Design of the Sci-Fi Floors is Superior to Either the Fantasy or What I Believe the DoE is Going to Be... Simply Beacuse you can do this type of "Stacking" without Losing the Effect of an "Intentional" Step... Kudos!

Ghengis--You're kidding?! Paper? I thought for sure they were from some other sort of playset. Those look really good for cardstock scenery. Man... I'm going to have to start looking at some of the fantasy stuff I've seen online then.

Yup it is just 110lb cardstock paper, run through my cannon 4400 printer that was cut, cut cut, fold, fold, fold, glue, glue, glue.

My opnion of cardstock up untill Orbital, was pretty low too, the stuff put out by Mirco Tactix was always what i had in my head as what card stock looked like, then companies Like Denny's World Works, Erics Stone Edges, Mels Ebbles Miniatures really turned my head around on the idea of Card Stock. And i man some of the stuff they do is mindblowing that it is in paper...
As it is now i mix and match CardStock and Resin regulalry becauase it increases my options soooo much. When i took the plunge into Terrain i went head first and i'm not going to limit myself in any form.

Partly becuase of like what MLV says, you can really add extra dimensions with the paper. Print out some of these floors is by Eric, but from the recent SWminiatures stuff (although having orbital i noticed all of the floors from that were the same texture, colors etc, just done in a 1x1 grid instead of 1.5) or Mel, or any one else, and if you got the walls you can add in a nice base, for multi level. Add in lots of the 6 inch walls from Beta, a few more Alpha and you have a three level set up, sure one is just a smidge lower, but it can really add a nice terraced, step look...
If i had checked the paper in my printer it would have been on card stock and more rigid, but it's just on paper. But even with that, mount it on Foam core and you can get some cool stuff to add to your layouts.

People mix and match the Caverns and the dungeons, caverns and Sci-fi, for me it's the same thing Paper and resin, with this i can get a different look to some of the walls, or floors, add levels, through some stairs in, ( i almost actually put in the gantry/walkway on the sides, but i never did it for lack of space in this set up, and couldn't find a good enough refrence for it's location, same level as the throne, higher lower, etc.)


oh MLV, the "throne" is just a massivly cut down Grendel Captains chair. Loppoed off the side computer consule, and the base, and it does a decent job of looking like the throne, i am working with some sculpty to make it more like the real one, but the main thing i was interested in showing was the consules.

whitewind the consules are first seen in the Death Star Two , and they showed up again in Revenge of the Sith.
