Ideas for improvement?

Postby Vortai » Tue Mar 29, 2011 1:17 am

So at the moment i'm working on making a forum battle, which'll probably fail very painfully but anyway i'm currently working on the battlefield (got the "armies" worked out already). Now this is my first time doing something like this (making a battlefield). I know this is quite pathetic compared to most other things found here but I aim for a fun battle, so I would appreciate any help available.

Oh and I know this looks a loot like Zarhu's medivo stuff, but I just really like that type of thing, no references are made and this a completely irrelevant battle but if you (as in Zarhu) don't want me to make it then I am quite willing to scrape the whole idea.

The left side of the field.

Image
The right side of the field.

Image
A zoom in on the "tower", yeah i know it need work but i'm trying to get a broken down look.

Image
some ruins, not much to say bout this stuff.

Image
Moar ruins. :)

Image
A very, very, VERY cliche guardian type dude guarding sum cliche loot

Image
Just the stuff they I really want to use, got moar if needed but I doubt it.

so thats about it, won't be able to post for a while, studying for a science exam. Bloody forensics. :P

oh and many thanks in advance. 8)

You know, just because your battlefield is fantasy-styled, it doesn't mean you are ripping off Zahru.

Also, Cliché Guardian is awesome. Build him a huge castle with those bricks.

Thanks for your kind words, just have had some bad experiences with "copyright" happy fellows in the past. :(

I will endeavor to fulfill your your request, I hope it looks right tho, because I kinda suck at building buildings (wow that was puny). :oops:

Exactly.

Btw gosh you have the big crownie castle... I jelly. Why don't you build some small forts, or towers?

And yes, the Guardian is indeed a very badass looking fellow.

I jelly... :?
anyhow I didn't build the guardian a huge castle (soz arkbrik), but I did improve it a little bit, think he might need more loot to protect now. :P

A front view of his new "humble" abode

Image
A top view with the roof off so you can see the loot, gotta luv loot

Image
The back of his house, probably won't be seen during the forum battle but watev, its not that purty.

Image
Finally an ACTION POSE, well not really but who cares?

oh and thanks for you input zarhu, anything specific? oh and thanks for the kind words bout old guardian, but I mostly just sloped him together with leftover stuff. :lol:

oh and before I forget: HAIL! ZARHU HAIL!, ALL HAIL TEH MASTER OF MEDIVO!!!1 :P :P :P

Sure, I can never afford to buy any big castle set. EVER.

Anyway pretty nice 'shrine' going on there. If I may have a suggestion, I'd put those flags on the pikes, they look a bit funky the way they are now.

I like the idea of a cardbox battlefield. You could even draw stuff like rivers, rough terrain or whatever suits your battle on it.
The guardian tower thing also looks intrigueing.
If i were you i would not put so many single terrain pieces on the field because a) the do not look good, b) serve no purpose and c) you will accidently knock them over all the time.

Hoboman is really jealous of the following picture and wished he had such a nice set of castles. :wink:
