    I think it will deliver a more suggestive backdrop for the inquistion trails.

    This is only the basic canvas Joseph. It needs a lot of manipulation before I'm happy with the actual backdrop. Tomorrow I will bring the complete kit and see what the others have to say.

    Agreed that it is basic and will need enhancement, but I feel that this style of building gives a more sinister view - like a horror movie, just my impression.

    It's the gothic architecture of the time I'm after, because my figures are medieval period.

    yep, gothic architecture, if not mistaken it started around the 12 century and definitly related to religious buildings.

    Well after a lonnnng break (had to stop because of Voss), last Saturday I stayed indoors and started scratch building a four-seated b=medieval bench for the jury. It's turning up quite nice imo. Hope to find some time this week to finish it and post some pics.

    I never stop being amazed at the level of detail they manage to put into such small subjects. They are really nice. Looking forward to this project, it will be quite unique.

    Very good Ray I really like it ... maybe it helps to elevate certain key figures so that you shall not leave everything flat especially due to the death spec you'll be having on top, though that would help out to control with a very dark shadowed stone work and stained glass. Gothic architecture shadowing works the opposite, dark on top and light coming down.

    Personally I would have elevated the inquisotor on some kind of platform to make him look potenet, and the martyr or victom central it according the light the roset will give you, probably would be almost the centre of the group and be the focal point ... prosit for the idea, it is very unique!

    Ejja we have to see this finished now!

    Yes Ivan I thought of elevating the inquisitor, but then the eye contact wouldn't be good. He will be looking over the victim's head and will lose a lot of drama.

    Regarding the light, I'm very unsure about the torches on the wall (which I still have to make). I think it would be better if I made them spent and leave only the daylight coming down from the windows above. What do you think? I'm not so keen on using light bulbs to represnt the flames on the torches, will look very amatuerish IMO.

    Regarding the torches I agree, leave a daylight effect coming out from the stained glass, regarding the inquisitor I think it needs an elevation, it gives him a more important role, if eye contact is minimal as is, just push back the victom, he does not need to be the exact centre ... try it out mate, might we are discussing for nothing as it might not work at all ...

    I'll second that please and on Sat as well and Mon and Tue and Thur and Fri lol!

    Joking apart, I agree with Ivan re trying to elevate the Inquistor and moving the victim a bit further back. How about making the Inquisitor stand up and lean a bit forward with hands resting on table, so you'll show that he's stressing his point even more and thus winning back a bit on the eye contact issue. But either or, I would try and dislevel things if I were you pale

    Just my 2c worth
