Custom Objective Room Doorways


Here's the current status of my custom doorways that are intended to match-up with the various Objective Rooms:

Fighting Pit
This was an easy one, but kind of cheaty... I just used a set of animosity orcs.

Tomb Chamber
Praying knight fig from Reaper. Starting to think it may need some banners or something hanging as well.

Quirrick's Lab
This Objective Room is from the White Dwarf expansion (two views)

Lair of the Orc Warlord
Still need to put some GS on the spear pole to blend the plastic/metal join more smoothly. Not sure what else should go on here, but it seems to need something more.

Deamonic Portal
Doesn't specifically go with any particular room, but I wanted it for some Chaos Dwarf scenarios.
Still needs stuff, maybe deamonic horns coming out of the skull over the door instead of the regular horns that are there... that and more GS, which will look like twisted deamon flesh-type stuff when it's all done. Skulls maybe?

Firechasm
Felt very uninspired with this one. It's supposed to be a lava room, but that's about it. I decided it was going to have a Chaos theme to it. The Battlemasters mini is going to be painted as a statue, and one of the carved faces on the backside is going to have lava pouring from its mouth down onto the base of the door and into the opening in the floor (which I'm hoping is going to look like lava has eaten it away). Other than that I'm not excited about this one.

Still need ideas for the Idol Chamber and the Fountain room. If anyone has suggestions let me know. I was thinking maybe the two faces on the one side of the doorway could have water pouring down from them and into small pools on either side of the doorway... and maybe lots and lots of moss given that it's watery.

I would think a Skaven theme or maybe Chaos Demons. But, you already have a Demonic themed one...

Perhaps a Skaven Sorcerer/Grey Seer or Plague Priest 'statue'? Hmmm... what about a 'stone' head of a Skaven Vermin Lord? Skaven Assassins peeking around the doorposts? A piece of warpstone glowing and jutting out from the top of the archway?

Re: Custom Objective Room Doorways


As always I am impressed by the quality of your work
Don't forget to show the result painted

For the idol doors, I imagine
2 braseros near each pillar...
And the skull is remplaced by a head of a Daemon...
Some cabillistic signs on Pillar.

For the fountain room, definitely a water them is needed... So blue color and a touch of yellow. No idea how to sculpt a door of water

Well I see no problem with making a second deamon-themed doorway as there's lost of creative room to make them very different. Part of me was even thinking of just using up lots of left over bits from some Daemonettes, Bloodletters and other guys to make it look like the doorway is just a mass of writhing twisted bodies. Another idea would be to just base the theme on one of the common Chaos daemons such as Nurgle with little Nurglings around the doorway, crumbling stone, rusting metal, dead bits of vines and maybe some pustulent boil type things on the ground. Khorne would be another good one with a banner beside the door, maybe some hacked up peasants with their upper bodies mounted on pikes sticking out of the ground, a cauldron of blood and skulls EVERYWHERE!!

As for the skaven idea, Quirrick's Lab is already pretty Skaven-themed what with the warpstone, rats, warp-powered lamps and such so I'm not sure where else to go with the idea. It's certainly my most elaborate one so far.

Well if it's sculpted as a fountain-like waterfall on either side of the doorway it should work - with water pouring out from the wall. I have some stuff called "Water Effects" that's good for making frothy/foamy sprays of water and also flames. To make it less frothy I just mix in a little white glue. Then you can just paint it on in gobs and gently sculpt the surface with a toothpick. Anyway, I need to have some of these ideas roll around in my head a little longer before I get down to business emoticon

Re: Custom Objective Room Doorways


I started a speed painting blitz about 2 weeks ago, trying to get through a pile of stuff from the past 4 years in preparation for some Winter Warhammer Questing. The doorways were in the list of to-be-painted and have been done for a while but I only got around to taking pics of the first 3 tonight. Still have work to do on the others. Painting standard is no where near what I put in on figures, but these work well for what they are. You'll notice as well some pock marks and holes in some of the doorways. They are barely noticeable IRL... except to the camera emoticon They're the result of small bubbles in some moulds I made for casting doorways. And before anyone gets worried for me - I honestly did contact GW about WHQ doorways specifically, they said as long as it was for my own in-home use and would not profit from them that it was permissible.

Re: Custom Objective Room Doorways


For the Idol Chamber, what about a large brass skull in the centre of the arch instead of the existing one, and add some panels on the columns with fire and skulls and maybe Chaos starts and arrows, like depicted on the original board section...

Loving your work!

Re: Custom Objective Room Doorways


Awesome work Nic . Both the Floortiles and the Doorways ,perfect. I've been gaming since 1985 and I've always wanted a 3d dungeon ,but the ones that were on sale were either too expensive or too crummy . Now seeing your dungeon gave the inspiring kick in my hindquarters to try it myself. Thanks for the great work. It's funny just days ago I found my WHQ box coverd in dust in my own dungeon which is my cellar and thought about reactivating my friends to couple of games ,but on seeing all the contributions here , I think about a longterm campagne .Thanks all.

It seems the WHQ community is growing -- OR perhaps being reanimated! Mwahaha!
