Here goes the next stage! After reconsidering different sizes and angles for the roof, I finally came up with a rather not so high pitched version.

Image

Image

This door won't open.

Image

The balconies will be supported by some stone wedges. They are already cut but have to be painted first before being applied.

Image

I plan to cut some pattern for the rosette from plastic card and then backlining it with some transparent coloured paper or foil.

And another update!

So the Rosette is finished now, so only the walls have to be painted and the roof finally added.

Image

I cut a transparent plastic from a one way plastic salad bowl, then painted it with permanent marker. I then blacklined it with black colour and brush. Thus I saved the transparency of the window.

Here some pics with diferent lighting:

I hope you like it! Please feel free to comment.

Looks great!

I completely copied your styro construction idea and used it on a Bloodbowl pitch I'm making. It's an excellent technique. I'll put up pics on this forum when I'm done.

I am interested to see how the roof will turn out, looking good so far.

I'm not a fan of the stained glass window myself, I think it has a few too may colours for my taste and therefore doesn't meet my idea of what it should look like. How you have set it into the stone looks great though.

Keep up the good work.

Hot. I wish I had the space to store foam. Stupid tiny apartment.

Well, it has been a while since I could report any progress on my project. I was sabotaged by my wife, who simply put the parts away, on which I was working. Not that I could not find them, but it nevertheless presented a complication hindering my artistical creativism.

But today the community will notice the last steps to the final stage in building the chapel, after which "only" the painting stage is to follow.

Image

This is the rear balcony. The door is not openable and still lacks a ring or grip. The parapet was cut to a width of 0.4-0.5cm. It is not as slanting as it looks, must be perspective of the camera.

Image

The roof in its final appearance with the set-back supporting constructions from the front. I decided to place some models at the front section would be nice without having to abandon the whole roof as planned, instead setting it back about 1/3, and linking all the balconies together except the rear balcony.

Image

This is what the sides look like now.

Image

The new front view with almost completed parapet. I will cut the parapet so the 3 Parts will go even more smoothly together.

I hope you enjoy the progress and the pics as much as I do. I think you get the idea how the chapel will look like when finished.

I'm glad to see the project is back on the move again. It's coming along really nicely, will you be adding a bell tower to the roof too?

Can't wait to see the finished project... and the start of the next piece!

Your polystyrene foam work is awe inspiring, really top notch stuff. The hopes and dreams of underhive youth will never be safe with this thing on your gaming board. If you keep your chapels and cathedrals looking sinister enough the Vatican might hire you as an architect.

I'm not planning to incorporate a belltower in the roof, maybe as an extra piece of terrain.

Thanks for the feedback, after over 100 hits without an answer I was already worried if anyone would still be interested in the project.

This is my first foam building in this size. I constructed some walls with the same technique and also some fences from foam and mesh. I also made two statues [one 40k (Spacemarine) and one fantasy (knight on horse)] If you are interested I may post them in another thread.

Awesome work! It looks tremendous.

Say, how did you basecoat the foam? Normal spray paint would melt that foam, and normal latex primer paint would (I imagine) fill in the cracks and obscure detail. So how did you manage such a great-looking finish?

possibly an airbrush will do the job?

I simply painted the foam without basecoating it before. I used some cheap paint from a do it yourself market and watered it down. Don't overdo this as the paint won't stick to the surface if it is too thin. I then drybrushed very carefully, to get that dark grey tone.
I also won't seal the paint on the foam, when the chapel will be finished.

I know, thks is doubleposting, but I wanted to share the next stage with you all.

Image

The primed, yet unpainted roof and the already coloured balconies with parapet.

Image

Detail of the balcony-door. Added handle-ring and imperial aquila. Since the red colour was too bright compared to the entrance doors, I aged it with another layer of grey drybrushed on top of it to match the front doors.
