Interest in Scorpion/Spider/Snake themed Sets? 2 Years ago  
I've wanted to build some evil themed temples with pillars/walls with the following themes

Scorpion temple
Spider temple
Snake temple (yes I realize we have a snake doorway in the wicked additions set)

Would anybody else enjoy building with more wicked addition, den of evil, or accesory sets with these themes?

The following photos inspire me concerning how fun these would be!

Absolutely, yes.

Setting aside statues, since the are any number of minis that can simply be painted as such. And ignoring a number of accessories from other companies, like snake pits and cobra fountains and such.

SNAKE

DF has a snake-themed arch, so a couple of extra items to match it make a lot of sense. Four of the red pillars with the green snakes wrapped around them would be enough to set the theme for a whole room. A small altar with, or a couple of braziers supported by, the same snakes would be the final touches.

Of course I still want a generic coiled-snake stone pillar.

SPIDER

For this, I like the idea of a 4"x4" or 6"x6" floor piece with a web or spider engraved in it.

An arch with a (removable?) web across it would make a grand entrance or trap.

A table or platform with eight legs could be a sacrificial altar, a central meeting place, or a scrying surface.

Finally, eight pillars sculpted to look like spider legs, slightly curved at the joints. If there was a clear plastic disc at the pointy end, they could stand on either end. They could rise up from below (perhaps in conjunction with the engraved floor piece above), possibly to flail at trespassers or weave a profane web; or they could descend from above, suggesting a carved ceiling or a monstrous foe that towers over its victims.

SCORPION

I don't have a clear concept for this one.

A scorpion arch might have a scorpion "perched" at the top, with pincers coming done and forward on either side, and maybe a curved stinger above?

A scorpion poised to strike holdin a bowl with removable flames and/or treasure makes a decent center piece, and makes a nice altar and/or trap.

This is definitely a good idea. I'm a fan of the Conan imagery to be certain, here a few different photos to add to the visualization.




a snake themed dungeon might have round doorways to accomadate the girth of truly huge serpents...


temple of doom- goddess Kali

Likewise I wasn't able to find anything scorpion themed other than the statue above, however there was the movies from the Scorpion King series that might help.

How about scorpions guarding either side of a doorway? They might look something like this tattoo with a doorway between their pinchers! :)

I like that idea jgardner, the pincers of one, clasping at the others... after all the mating ritual of the scorpion is occasionally a bizarre and violent one by human comparison. Although some reproduce through parthenogenesis (like a Dragon I'd like to believe).

The floors might have a scorpion duo design etched into them the theme of a pisces or the ying-yang. Which would also show a good symmetry.

I'm wondering if such a temple might feature surfaces littered in debris, and twisting vines. With entryways aloft, and vertical shafts that would be perilous for a person, but ideal for something like a reptile or arachnid.

Skulls, and remnants of skeletons (man or beast) might be tethered between shoots and vines that have had plenty of time for unfettered, rampant growth. In such a horrid place, even some of the plants could be carnivorous.....

Anyway that's where my mind is going with this...

I think as a theme this is probably too specialized. I do think DF needs
to make some quality accesories like the stuff made by Grendel. However
if they did go that route I would probably want more general stuff(furniture,book cases,
wizard's lab crap, torture devices ect)

The snake set from Grendel covers most of this but I hate painting so I would
probably buy it from DF either way.

Snake pillars and/or snake statues to place on either side of a door way would be two of my favorites types of pieces to see.

Personally, I've always hoped to see a scorpion themed temple set-up ever since I read a great story by Brian Lumley concerning a scorpion worshiping sect. hidden deep in a tropical jungle. Hehe...

Invincible Overlord set the standard for this idea using existing DF pieces and some Grendel accessories. His repaint of the columns really was brilliant to tie it all together.
