I am working on something else with this, and going to finish up the Statues, but for now I wanted to put up the start of the layout I have. Designed as a Temple, the different sides representing opposing forces one “good” one “bad”, around are jars of offerings, the center holds the temples riches, and the back I am still working on, the parts for it are drying.

Whoa! Amazing! Where did you get those beads? They work perfectly! The blue ones look great, but the reddish brown ones look even better! The colors are perfect for ancient Greek vases -- just stunning! And I really like your layout, too. Where'd you get the statues?

Very nice stuff!

Harneloot should be in luck, got them at my local Michaels called something like "antique beads", they are in i think the "yellow" section of beads. I have looked at them off and on for a while, namely for a few of the things on the alters, they just looked like they would work for "stuff" on tables etc, but could never justify the like $4 or so to get a pack for 1-2 items, ROTA was the reason to get them, ended up with like 3-4 different packs of them.

I looked at and picked up about 3-4 times but always put back a series animals like them but didn't like the big holes, in some.

The statues are a left over Mage Knight "minatour" like creature, i cut the tail, horns and axe off, and based it on a HA base, the other was a Heroscape figure wanted a few of the others in the pack, but not that one (didn't fit in with what i wanted0 so it looks decent for an Angelic figure. After looking at the pictures, want to add another base and make the pedistal a bit large (just higher).

I like the use of those beads, I have a bunch of those myself (need to find those in the "clay red" you have). Definitely going to steal that idea using them as pottery.

How did you get that red clay color? I've been able to approximate it in the past, but I can no longer remember how. Red and raw sienna? Orange and burnt umber? I honestly don't know anymore. I just picked up a bag of what appear to be exactly these beads, in silver, and I want to get them to look like yours. Particularly the red, but also a few in blue...

Uhm come on L.... You should know me by now, I hate to paint, ;) :D
Those are store bought from Michaels, no painting on my part, straight out of the pacakge.
In my Michaels' bead section they had the metalics and the clay/ceramics. There were these in Silver, Gold (a mixed set i think of Silver and Gold as well) and then a few "ceramic" . I bought two different Ceramics they both had the same color combos(thoguh the blue was different between the two sets), but a slightly different mix of beads. The ceramics had Blue, Red, and i think the Grey (some of the Gray may have come out of a Big multi pack that had a mix of metalics and ceramics, but not sure).

I just went to the Michaels' page to see if i could find them, and on the beads>products page (click beads, click products, then beads again and it's the last circle on the right) they are actually the example for the Plastic
www.michaels.com/beads

same section and package as these and found them

The beads are a clever idea.

Is that Griffon Studios cargo I see in the sci fi set in the background?

I am at a point where i think i have to pause so i hope to work on this over the weekend.

On Nelvanna Seperatists forces take over the temples of the locals, in an attempt to create a new fighting force for the clone wars.
The Nelvanna's do not know and go about thier business in the temple...

All Hail Michaels, a long time back I found these Decorative Roman/Grecian Style Cake Toppers in the Wedding Section, I grabbed a set of the the 4, 3 inch tall ones to use for 3D trerrain, and when I say a long time back, I think it was even before I was buying DF terrain, I may have at that point just been buying the Accesories like tables, chairs etc., well anyways I think this is the company/one
, Mike's has all of the different Heights but 3 inch seemed best for the scale I wanted.

Remembering that I got them at Michaels, and wondering what other styles they might have That might look "better" with RotA, or just to get more, I went looking back in that section. They had a very similar product (for all I know it might be the same product just like 8 years later new package), but they were taller than I wanted, and mikes may just have been out of the 3 inch at the time, as i have over the years looked and not always seem them. but while looking around I saw some clear plastic "crystal" columns in the same place. I looked at it and was like, on it's side that could make a cool like Power Core or something. So i grabbed the set of 4 of these

I think they are the same ones, they sure look like it, When I get the time (which should now be this weekend) I plan on either trying to rig some Lights up in it (which is beyond my current capacity, but something i am interested in learning how to do) or Well with in my current abilites, fill it with some like blue, or red transparent resin (like the Ice stuff, Invisible figures or the Holograms I have made) so it has some color to it nd look like it is "doing something", more so than just sitting there.

I had to grind down the base a little to get it to fit in the iris peices with out braking of the ladder rung, but that was it.


After going around and trying to find pictures, I have to say I like this style as well, haven't seen it in my Mike's but I think it looks kind of cool. It's a Lattice Column.
