Okay, I don't know if they'll let me do this, but I figured this project is so massive it need its own thread.
I suggested to JamSessionEin awhile back that he make a bar out of his Forgeworld Squiggoth. he did not take that idea, but I started making Feral Orks and though I might as well do it myself!
I bought two dinosaur models for a meager 20 dollars each and am going to do two Squiggoths. Both will be equipped with weapons, etc, but I thought it would be fun if they also served a dual purpose.
The first Squiggoth is going to be a massive Bar and Grill.
The second Squiggoth is going to be a Church to Gork and Mork.
I am going to photograph it at every stage and update it on the front page, as well as in the thread.
Please note, this is just the first stage, there are walls, pieces of metal, Orks, and all kinds of other stuff missing still but I wanted to document this every step of the way.
Squiggoth Bar and Grill
(name suggestions please)
Please note, these are not necessarily the colors I am going to use. I am going to build it all and then paint it when I am done--unless I need to place something somewhere awkward. The Squiggoth itself, however, is probably going to be a dark to light orange.)
Isn't he handsome?
There are going to be four major features on this model.
1: A bar
...a. A dancing Ork/Human stripper.
...b. A bartender.
...c. Drunk patrons, some hanging off the dinosaurs horns, etc.
...d. Some Orks playing cards at another table.
2: A BBQ
...a. a large pig on a spit.
...b. a smaller BBQ for burgers and sausages.
...c. A 'Kiss the Cook' wearing Chef. (complete with giant spatula.
...d. A walk-up staircase to turn the spit.
3: A weapons platform
with three rokkit launchas.
4: A Hot tub
(space permitting) I'm not exactly sure where to put this yet.
Here is the beginning of the Bar:
Here is the floor with the BBQ on it (It is currently missing the side walls and the food and the big and stuff. I just sculpted them and am waiting for them to dry.
I really want to pack this guy with lots of detail and I'm looking for suggestions on how to do the Sign (also what the sign should say) and where to affix the hot tub (I have some water effects and two shirtless drunken Orks ready to plop down into it)--do I add a third floor?
Here are the rules for it btw: (Last page of this .pdf.)
I might go with those rules, or the Forgeworld/Apocalypse rules because it's just so damn big I don't know if the Feral Ork Squiggoth rules are good enough (assuming the Forgeworld one is tougher...anyone know?)
I made a TD for iphone and windows phone!
