Thanks guys
I have finished the right side, not sure if i will stay with just the ring or put a celtic cross in it. I still havent done the stained glass window for the other side yet, as i havent found what type of materials i should use for it, so still searching for that. Also am undecided on the top, i thought of maybe making battlements such as the ones on top of castles but thats still in consideration. I may have to build a fan port on the front under the gargoyle to accomadate another case fan, maybe make it look like a drawbridge or something. Im going to add more color as Crimson suggested (thanks for the idea):) A hammered look will go well with some nice color on this. To Cevinzol, i used regular old bondo (car putty) for the effects, all i did was spread it around and clump it up in some areas. I let it dry completely and then went to work with my Dremel, and shaped it to look like stone, then painted it flat black for a base coat, then started dry brushing from dark to lighter colors until i had the desired look you see here.

This site has inspired me to get back in touch with my creative side, I have always been an artist but never really pursued my talent for it, (thank the Marines for that)8) Anyway here are the pictures of the right side, it may stay or i may change it, who knows. ;)
