Well okay maybe not all of it 😉
Here is my big temple. Standing about 8cm tall. The sides are 9cm on each side.
Here it is defended by some Aztec warriors.
A nice size to go with the 15mm figures.
I also built three smaller pyramids (or simple Lizardmen dwellings as they are named on the website). These come in threes, the main one as an individual.
These are about 4cm high and 6cm on the side.
Each of the smaller one has an opening on one face. As seen by the one on the left. They work very well as minor temples too.
They are all made up of concentric squares in two layers with internal supports.
The step sides are then added, these help strengthen the whole thing. I used super glue, but could have used PVA instead. The upside of the super glue is that they were ready to get onto the table in a few minutes.
The thing I really like about these is that due to their construction you don’t get any tab holes showing anywhere. Because of the double layers, the stairs look the right scale.
Now these models don’t have any instructions, but to be honest it took about thirty seconds to work out how they went together.
These came from Dragonfrog games, found here
They both were £6.00 each so in my mind really good value for money. I didn’t have to pay postage as Martin runs his business from Shetland which is rather handy 😁
I suppose I have to now think about what to do colour wise. Part of me wants to leave them as they are and another part wants to make them brighter. Most pictures I have seen of Aztec temples when in use are stuccoed so therefore a creamy white.
In Hordes of the Things the Strongholds (temple) sit on a base 600 paces (15cm) square, with the actual stronghold being 200 paces (5cm) square. So either the big one
It suddenly dawned on me that my Alternative Armies Skull piles fit well on these…
Tomorrow I will work in some form of plaza for the temple to sit on.
The other thing I did tonight was squidge some Greenstuff into lianas and leaves.
The unpainted leaves are to go onto the Triffid base when it is cured. Once dried I will get them painted up.
