Tar Pits

Post by Terrainosaur »

These are tar pits, 27 pieces in all. I made them in a day.

The bases are thick plasticard. Using liberal amounts of hot glue, I attached beads, old miniatures, giant rib bones, bits and piecs to the bases. Then I gave them a thick spray of gloss black paint.

Fathom's Reeking Ruins

Post by Terrainosaur »

The purpose was to represent the bubbling sludge caused by a demonlord struggling to burst through into the mortal realm.

A large pit of seething black sludge bulges as if about to give birth. Then a shape breaks the surface and slowly rises. Forked prongs first appear, then a long blade ascends. None of the pitch sticks to it. The edges of the otherwordly sword glitter. Glowing blood-red runes hurt your eyes. The weapon is easily twice the height of a tall man. No hand holds it aloft. The blade's grip emits a constant flow of hot, black pitch.

"Hello," she says in a maternal voice. "I am Fathom, Demonlord of the Devouring Pit. Free me and free yourself!"

Bits n bobs

Here are some with parts glued to them. The solid, glossy black makes it difficult to see what they are - not what I expected.

Demonic statues

Post by Terrainosaur »

What scared the players the most were the pits with winged statues in them.
