Howdy howdy howdy!

I got the NECA "Final chapter" BD Jason (Can't recommend it enough; fabulous figure) and was left a little disappointed he didn't come with a base. I know we all used to dismiss the bases, but now I've grown to like them, and I felt he could really use one. So, I started work on my first diorama, which has been a dream of mine for a few years now. I figured I wouldn't overreach and settled on a forest floor.

I bought a dio kit for miniatures, and just scaled it up; one of those super useful little kits from Michael's crafts. I used spray adhesive to adhere to sandpaper-like surface to a blank wood canvas, and a combination of spray adhesive/super glue/hot glue to create the details of the terrain. I made the sign from a printout and some foam. the sticks are...well, sticks.

Not everything can be fancy

It's still got plenty left to do, but I was pleased with my progress so far, and wanted to share. It's getting a background wall, borders and some more accessories, but here's the start.

thanks for checking it out!

I too am starting to dabble with custom bases and dioramas to help accentuate some figures that I really feel deserve it.
Hopefully I will be posting some here shortly.
Great, great work here my friend.
Love this base.

Your Camp Crystal Lake sign is almost identical to the one I made and posted last week here on the realm. I thought you were inspired by mine especially since yours looks a lot like mine considering I left out some key design elements from the original sign. But hey, coincidences happen.

Total coincidence, man, though I did love your old-school take on Jason and the sign. My sign is just an image from Google I cut out and glued to some foam, and more lazily than I intended.

I was inspired while watching the films the other day, where the sign does indeed hang like yours. But I felt the hanging part was beyond my skillset, so I just glued it to a post and into the ground. We were inspired by the same films, amigo.

I wonder where you got that sweet idea or inspiration to do that?

Um...I suppose from NECA? I'm gonna be honest with you; I don't really know what you're implying, here.
