[Song of Fork and Heroes]
Agyptian Watchtower

Fully painted, oil washed and flocked - done.

Agyptian Temple

I applied the usual oil washes used for my Agyptian scenery to the model:

After matt varnishing the model, I applied the flocks as with the other scenery items. Why would flames be burning in a desolated temple, that fell in obvious disuse...? Because these are mythical flames of course! That is also why they are green and can never be extinguished.

Fully painted, oil washed and locked - done.

Agyptian Watchtower

After applying gloss varnish to the tower, I applied the oil washes.

Agyptian Watchtower

I painted the tower in the same colors as the rest of the Agyption scenery.

Agyptian Temple

In the center of the temple I placed four pillars with a burning flame on top. Above them is the hole in the ceiling, so I placed fallen down parts of the ceiling, around which over time a small sand hill has formed.

I first glued the floor to the base.

On the floor I then built the walls of the ground floor, including small parts of the floor of the first floor, which will serve as a jig to hold the first floor in place.

The first floor was then constructed the same way, including parts of the floor of the second floor.

The second floor was built with a flat top.

The roof has blocks on its underside to keep it in place ontop the second floor.

Agyptian Temple

As I did not want the roof of the temple to be open to the sky, I constructed a ceiling from Hirst Art floor tiles. Laying them on their tops, I glued the tiles to each other. I then strengthened the construction by gluing a piece of cardboard on the underside.

Agyptian Temple

According to the building instructions from Hirst Arts, this is the rear center wall.

Which does not look right to me. So I changed it to the same top pieces as the rest. Here is the completed enclosure with the roof not glued in place (the top of the colum is still missing).

I again used a 5mm MDF base, bevelled the edges and strengthened them with filler. Then I applied acrylic caulking and spread it out in a thin layer.

This was the base for me using a Textured Green Stuff World Roller Pin for the first time. I used water to wet it, which was too much, made the acrylic too soft and took away too much material. But as I only wanted to have the pattern show through sand here and there this was fine.

On the still not cured acrylic caulking I placed the temple as well as four pillars with torches on top.

When everything was dry, I marked the width of the entrance to place some steps leading to it.

Then the base was sanded.

Agyptian Watchtower

The third and last Agyptian building I was casting for is a watchtower, using mainly the Egyptian Tower Mold #93.

The blocks went together well, only for the top of the door I needed to modify some of the blocks. The instruction says to sand the back of the decorative blocks to the angle of the wall, but I found it more easy to attack the wall.

Ground level done. This will remain one large, big, high room, here the supplies are stored, and horses can be sheltered. I glued the blocks, so that on the outside there is a row of glyps running up the center.

This is how the first level will look like, having two windows each side.

I ran out of some blocks (the smallest for example) and have to cast some more now to continue construction.
