Instead of just attempting to do comps through the gallery (which is what i’ve been doing), i figured i’d start a thread just for comps. Which means, technically, “projects i never finish.” However, it might be the incentive i need to complete things.

I did manage to enter Comp 19 and the Mad Robot Comp, I guess that’s something.

So, Comp 25: Scene It. My plan is to do a Spyrer base and (hopefully) some defense pods for the scenario Home Defense. This is my starting point: the “base” the Spyrers return to to level up and unlock new abilities in their suits. A kind of charging station, i guess.

I am imagining Borg like scenes where an unwary juve is wandering by when all of a sudden spyrers start unplugging from walls :)
that was my first image (and the Aliens unfolding from their hidey holes). While i intend to have lots of wires and plugs and stuff, i think it will look more open, like cryopods. Of course, it could be nestled in among other scenery, so maybe the Juvie Surprise could be a possibility.

Update (no pics)

So my younger Yaklings have managed to mess up our sleeping schedules with unscheduled late naps on the couch... after managing to get everyone to sleep, i had a second wind and did some prep for the Base.

The white piece is the spinner plate from a cheap Easter egg decorating kit. The blue platforms for the Spyrers to “rest” on are baby bottle tops (from the newborn ready-made bottles) and are hollow. i want them to look like a grating that hive grime and ganger viscera could be flushed down. So i trimmed up some granny grating (finally get to use it!) and some cardboard plugs to go under it (the stuff is so flimsy) and i’ll glue that on the inside of the bottle tops.

@Kitcar :LOL:

these particular ones are her older brother’s bottle tops. although i have added her newborn ones to the hoard bits box, since she turned 9 months today and is working on sippy cups now.

So i think the plugs/granny grating look pretty good. i may add a couple extra “plugs” underneath incase they get pushed in by accident. the clear pieces hanging down are christmas bells from a string of lights that died. and i put a big mechanical piece in the center to contain all the tubes and wires and stuff.

i’ve used most of them in the past, so i’m thinking it should be fine. i’ve never used granny grating, but it’s been used all over the Tribe an no one’s said anything bad about it and primer. All of the plastics have been washed, so there shouldn’t be any release agents or anything left on any of them.

Thanks @cainex1. my hope is to actually get it finished. (and maybe place higher than 13th ;))

So i added some cardboard filler to the spyrer’s platforms so they’re not truly hollow (yawn) and did some detail work to the top.
View media item 21102I had originally planned on leaving space to place minis, but the black piece in the middle was too big (and i liked it), so i put a bunch of bits around the edges as machinery or techno bits.

That's coming together nicely dude, really fitting the ideas, I can almost see the spyrer's eyes flicking open and stepping down from the grated platforms with dripping wires and cables popping out and trailing behind etc :)

Then sparks due to a short circuit caused by a arrow slicing a conduit. Spyrer X starts talking like Max Headroom and his weapons starts discharging randomly... Spyrer X retreats to the station again for repairs, a shield drops and the Redemptionist gang grins with the success. :) :D :) :D
