Hey Bobby,
I've been sitting on this idea for a while now but I always thought your gaming room
looks very stark and lacking in atmosphere.

Having done some work in theaters with set building and design etc. a few quick and
dirty tricks could be used to liven up this room which would be nice seeing as it looks
like it is going to be the main social area and all that.

Not sure how latitude you have to decorate the place but I can imagine as long as it
aint anything structural your land lord would be OK, hopefully [smile]

Here is an example of a set I did where I built the stove from scrap wood and the
walls and floor are simply textures painted on using a ragging technique with 3
different colours ( a bit like the chipping effect where dab with a torn off bit of sponge )

It's a relatively quick and easy and quite effective at getting a nice stony
texture then it's black for the outlines with white for the highlights.

So anyway, I slapped together a wee mockup in photoshop of what your
"Dungeon" could look like.. if you also paint a wood texture onto the doors
and frames and skirting boards and ceiling etc.

add some oldy lanterns of some kind, any kind, and maybe some wood
shelves that go all the way around the room above the height of the
doors so they don't impact upon precious floor space, age them up maybe ....
and Voile' !
The effect is complete [biggrin]

[228045-o] 


And when your landlord sees it you can reassure him that it is just
painted on and can easily be put back to how it was etc. [smile]

I reckon two people doing two full on days to do it, I'd be happy to
help out on this one, just in case you like the idea [smile]

Anyhow, would be interesting to hear what you think

That is a fantastic idea and love all the photoshop. Really helps to see more the end result. I have been thinking of something like this but maybe a bunker type theme or my be a Ork scrap metal look.

Put as always it's finding the time... damn you time.

Thanks

I did think of spaceship things but no sliding doors,
they don't have swing doors in space don't you know....
But they do occasionally have castles [wink] [biggrin]

Anyhow, I suggested this scheme as it is quick but effective to do
seeing as peoples time is always at a premium [smile]
I do think a Millennium Falcon style room would be cool,
stick a curved couch in the corner and paint the rest etc.

Like I said, I'd be happy to help on this one,
and whilst I'm there perhaps we could get your
green screen working properly if you like,
up to you of course Bobby [smile]



And cheers Ted [smile] [thumb]

Awesome, I like the idea of that. 

Star Trek or the Millennium Falcon interior would look brilliant.

this is just me personally but I think the Star Trek theme is a bit too clinical and
sterile looking to be conducive to a warm, cosy, relaxed social environment [smile] 

Also the Sci Fi themes would take more money and time to do where as the dungeon
theme would be cheap and quick and lends itself more readily to that relaxed man cave
games room styley thingy ma'bob wotsits [smile]

One could add a few Star Wars style piping and wires up the corners to get that
orkish hybrid sci fi dungeon theme going on, add a few cardboard box false beams
maybe. Nice thing about that the Dungeon theme is that you can get it looking finished
quickly and have a good basis for adding things to later, it's a more flexible theme.

But that said anything is better than those bare walls and red doors [biggrin]
