I like the way you did the shading on Goldberg. He makes a good figure.

Nice kitbash on Bighead too.

Thanks Jason.

Time for another update.

Custom rundown building armory display.

The floor is foam board, and the walls are floral foam with a plaster mixture I learned about from this guy's videos.
The mesh wall hanging is metal mesh cut and wrapped around the edge of a wooden frame. The other posts are just small finishing nails pushed into the foam walls.

The rest are just lots of guns I've accumulated over the years, and other assorted accessories.

Looks cool, but I don't think I'd leave a gun hanging by a hook through its trigger guard. Especially if the hook was then pulling the trigger. :)

Hey, Cole likes to live dangerously. He's been with Zealot, remember? :lol:

New diorama time.

This one is a dungeon filled with flesh rotting liquid and bits of skeletons scattered about.

This is going to be a multiple post custom as I took a lot of pictures to get as many of the small details as possible.

This piece can rotate or be taken out completely, depending on the kid of shot I want to take.

The entire thing was made from foam sheathing that you put under siding on the outsides of houses. The pieces were cut to size, then the stone patterns were carved into the walls, and the jagged rock look was carved into the floor sections.
The walls were glued in place, then everything was then painted with acrylic black paint, and 3 shades of gray to get the textured look. I then glued the floor down, and mixed up the liquid mixture.
- Equal parts latex caulk, white glue, and the lightest green paint. Stirred thoroughly, then a portion of plaster and water to get it to the proper consistency. Once that was dried, I went in with dry brushes of the 2 darker shades of green, and a watered down metallic blue. After that was a thin brush coat of triple Thick Glaze to make it look wet.

Thank you sir.

I have lots of plans for other, smaller pieces. Ones sized for Joes specifically, and some debris for MLs to interact with.

Okay, so ignore my questions in the other thread.

This is really nice work, and photographs extremely well. Excellent job, Salem!

That's a pretty sweet die-oh-rama, sir.

Not sure if it's possible, but if you could put some faint lighting in the muck, that would look really cool.
