The Tower Of The Inquisitor Die Tower

Hey there,
I'm FINALLY done with this darned thing...it's not just ANY dice tower - it has a gearbox and pulley that actuates the dice trapdoor, an axe that beheads a Nikita Agent, and a working chain portcullis.

The body is made of 1/4" thick Basswood, covered in plaster for the purpose of making it look like an adobe building. The paint is a textured sand paint, and although the color isn't what I envisioned, it's pretty decent in person. The knob on the front sits on an acrylic rod that turns a keyed internal gear sprocket that is attached to a pulley which actuates the portcullis, and the rod itself rotates the trapdoor to release the dice into the catchbasin area. The gear also actuates an acrylic piston that raises and lowers the axe to 'chop' the agent's head off. The thought there is that if I sacrifice the chick every time I need some skulls I might get one!

Front view, from above the basin:

Speed Custom Poll #14

Yet another custom project by SuperflyTNT - the Boneyard of Despair. This is a completely original work, and was inspired by the Zombie Horde. I was going to be using Runa as the 'Queen' of the area and was going to add a bit more detail, but I misunderstood the instructions on the rules thinking that only one ARMY CARD was to be the subject. Looks like I am doing alright - at this writing I am in second place with votes.

The graveyard is almost 100% original sculpture and paint - I got the walls from a "Christmas Village", you know - the kind that old people put up at Christmas time to remind them that the world once was a simpler place. Everything else is 100% sculpted and hand painted with custom color mixes - some airbrushings, mostly small-brush freehand.

Personally, my favorite parts of the whole set are the tree, since it's so creepy looking, the stone casket because the little dead guy inside really does look pretty desicated and nasty,...
