Pyramids of Mars - Scenery Progress Update

Well not so much a progress update but since Hugh asked I thought I'd list out the Egyptian ruins I have collected thus far. Many of these items will be used in Death on the Nile, while some will also populate rooms in the Priory.

The following items are all by Fenris. I bought a £50 loyalty card which entitled me to £100 worth of models. Not bad!

 

 

 

 

 

This small arch may be turned into a tomb entrance. I've bought some cork and I'm now after some hard foam.

The remaining Fenris models are smaller items that will be used to decorate larger pieces of terrain and act as objective markers.

 

 

 

 

 

The next three items are all by Scotia Grendel and will be turned into tomb entrances.

 

 

 

 

I also have a Renedra tent set for the archaeologist and intrepid explorers.

 

 

As if that lot isn't enough I've also bought a few bits of aquarium scenery. An arch is currently being painted. The rest you'll have to wait to see!

Lastly, just to prove I am moving forward with some of this...

 

 

He's now under coated and I've started to base coat. In the show, the back wall is dark purple. I'm planning on making Sutekh's prison more tomb like and have an idea...

    1. Hopefully I'll be able to do them justice. The tomb entrances in particular will be a focal part of one scenario.

  3. That's an excellent collection! Much more extensive than my own meagre efforts in this area.

    1. I've spent more time than I dare admit looking for bits and pieces for this scenario! There are a few more items that I'll reveal soon ;-)

    1. Just finished a test piece to get a colour scheme. So hopefully I can crack on with the rest.
