I'm building an old west mine. My goal is for the mine to burrow into a mountain with tunnels and miners inside. The front view will be railroad going into the entrance with a light bluish gray foundation. the back view will be of inside the mine with miners, gold deposits, maybe some spiders and other creepy crawlies. For the mountain itself, my current plan is to play a series of receding facet pieces on either side topped with some 1x5x4 arches. Here's some pictures of what I've got so far: google link.
My questions are
- Do you have any advice for building the cavern into something closer to a quarter sphere - more cavernous, and less like a pyramid?
- What are some good creepy things to put in the back of the mine, besides spiders?
- I'm considering putting in a small body of water in part of the mine. Is there a way I can put some creepy little tentacles coming out of the water?
