More Gelatinous Madness.

This has now officially become an obsession, the quest to create the perfect Gelatinous Cube. Here is the latest effort:

As you can see this Mark II cube is somewhat larger than his Mark I brethren, hence the use of a Dwarven Forge corridor to house him. I'm getting there quietly I think; this version is nearer to the 10x10x10' cube described in the Moldvay Basic D&D rulebook and the sheer size gives it some impact  compared with my earlier ice cube efforts. I'm still not happy with the finish though, the current batch of clear resin doesn't seem to de-gas as well as it might leading to the slightly 'fizzy' look; also this disguises somewhat the old helmet and coins held within, which again have settled to close to the surfaces to look right.
Hopefully Mark III will be better, back to the drawing board!

    I kind of like it. If you don't want it, let me know. :)

    1. I like it, and the size is perfect. For my taste the cube you've got here is a little two uniform and machined-looking. I like those I've seen with a slightly more rounded look and concave sides. Of course, it's easy to go too far in that direction as well.

      BTW I've thought about trying my hand at a G. Cube myself but once I start thinking of the R&D, the materials needed, and the time, the Otherworld one starts to look like more and more of a bargain. ;) Anyway, best of luck!
