Troll Kriel Shrine
By Pat Ohta
This tutorial was originally published in No Quarter issue 21 featuring Dr. Twitch.
A massive obelisk of carven stone rises from the rocky ground and dominates the surrounding landscape. The low guttural voices of stone scribes fill the air, causing it to buzz and hum with ancient power. A massive troll emerges from the darkness into the flickering torchlight that illuminates the sacred site, hauling an enormous stone carved with runes that flicker and pulse. The troll gingerly and lovingly places the stone within an alcove at the base of the obelisk, and the runes burst to life in a frenzy of light as the power of Dhunia courses into the krielstone.
The Stone Base
The stone tile base is comprised of two pieces. Start by making the bottom tier. Cut two 9”X9” pieces of ¼”foam core. Glue these two pieces together.
Cut out 2 6”X6” pieces of ¼” foam core, and glue together. This will be the top tier.
Table Top World Abandoned Factory
The Abandoned factory is a fantastic 15 piece polyurethane resin kit from Table Top World. The building is very realistic looking and has tons of character. The casting quality is very good, and the molds have captured the tiniest details. The wood grain and stone texture are very pronounced. Normally, I would expect to find some air bubbles where the rivets are, but on my piece there was none.
The first thing to catch my eye was the stonework. The lads at Table Top World build the master model stone by stone, and bypassed the easy route of using textured plastic sheets. There are even missing bricks and sagging sections along the walls, which really show the building’s age.
There was very minimal cleaning required, and all the pieces dry fit perfectly. After a quick wash, I let the pieces dry over night.
The building goes together very logically. There are clear demarcation lines for the ramp and smoke stack, and the pipes connect to the flange parts on the wall and boilers.
The kit gives you two options to attach to the pulley. You can either attach the bucket or the basket of ore. I opted for the bucket and drilled two holes to insert a piece of wire. Then I connected it to the pulley system.
The completed building measures approximately 8” X 6” X 8”. I should also mention, the windows of the building are filled in and can be painted to look like glass or left black. I used a rotary tool to remove the glass so I could light up the building. This building was fun to build and to paint. If you are a terrain collector like me I would highly recommend picking up one of these.
