GB46 - Double Barrel Dice Tower

Post by bugbait_nz » Sun Jun 09, 2013 6:23 am

Two tubes made with three partial cuts for some plastic inserts to bounce the dice around, will drop the dice in a toxic sludge pond, I dont have a final design in my head yet. . .
Infinity is all about the face to face rolls, so even when its not your turn you still get the chance to shoot back, think overwatch, only with a posibility of cancelling out all of your attackers shots!
Im hoping this wont turn out too big, I think smaller is better for Infinity.

Thanks N

Progress
PVA weld lines on one tube
Foamboard support structure for the tubes
Fan painted and 'coolant tubes" that will go behind it and hold it in place.

Progress

Cheap plastic handles used for the pipe bends and green heavy paper tubes for the pipes.

Slow progress

Internal foam board supports for the tubes

Based on 3mm MDF, there will be some 10mm wire mesh to add around the dice landing zone not that it needs it, the 3 internal slats in the tubes slow the dice down so there is no chance of them bouncing out.

Not too shabby!

Is there anything inside the tubes to make the dice tumble around more?

Thanks R92

@NC, if you have a look at the first pic you can see two of the three cuts that I did in the brown tube, about 1/3 the way though, I cut a CD cover to fit, these rattle the die around really good.

I seriously underestimated the time to paint this, so much more to do . . .

Ok Im mostly happy with this now! Only one week late . . .
3 drybrush layers of red, I went very bright because I knew the dirt wash would dull it down a lot.
Sludge pools are painted in a circular swirly motion going from black/green to brown, 2 layers of polyurethane varnish to make it look wet.
Signs are coated with PVA so the dirt wash would not run the printer ink.
Pipes are dry brushed from dark grey to grey then white (Im starting to use Vallejo paints, they are very very good, like GW paints used to be)
