Wowo ! I never build the old Shellendrak, mainly because of space issues... With TLX, I may be tempted !

I like it a lot as I have always considered the original Shellendrak set to be my favourite WWG product. One thing I do miss in the TLX sets is the option for transparencies for windows. Any hope of seeing them return?

Oh I was just looking at this after I posted and I am VERY happy with this set and will be buying and printing LOADS of this as I think it looks close enough to mix pretty nicely with SoH.

With out a side by side comparison the walls look to be about the same color and this could do nicley for fantasy, modern or even old section in sci-fi with SoH to get a sprawling palace/mansion with a nice stone fence around it.

This one includes transparencies (TITAN has some as well). We'll always give the option for transparencies when we can.

Very excited about this (and transparencies!)

Thoumont's TLX also has transparencies. This set looks great, and (hooray!) suitable for fantasy and mixing with Thoumont's TLX! Will be buying for sure!

Man this is nice looking, money and time :roll: . I would love to build out the whole mansion just because, but my Titan calls and slowly I build up my collection for my players. -D²

Thought the picture made the presence of transparencies obvious enough ;)

Alternate GSDs are provided for cut-out-windows to make transparency options easy. Transparent windows are avilable in both standard and stained glass variations.

And yes...Shellendrak West has the Terrain Box, so if space is an issue, it comes with it's own pack-away-and-store option.

That's great news, Bob. I was hoping those were transparencies in the picture you posted but I thought it best to ask, just to be certain. You guys sure know how to deliver!

Shellendrak looks like it would make a great Institute of Higher Learning. I need to see if I can find some lab equipment for it. Bwahahahaha... :twisted:

Look closely at the old Shellendrak, and the new Shellendrak Props They both have some of the trappings for a mad scientists lab.

Tesla coil, Surgical Gurney, Cadaver Gurney, Control Panel, Iron Maiden...

Everything a good school needs :D

I was thinking it would make a good residence for a certain Dr. Herbert West professor at Miskatonic University. Some Mad Scientist lab equipment would definitely go well with that. :D

Heh, rereading The Haunting of Hill House by the late and long missed Shirley Jackson -
No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.

Still one of the best ghost stories ever written. :)

And the more recent one was so very bad. :(

The '63 The Haunting is my fourth favorite movie. :) (On the flip side - I also liked Return to Hell House, with Roddy McDowell. It is filed under Dumb but Fun. :P )

Oh, yes. Wildwood, please.

The Auld Grump, the grave's a fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace....

Working on it, working on it...the pictures are taken, but finding the time to push them through post-production (sizing, branding, logoing, etc.) is taking a bit.

\(^o^)/ Great to hear they're on the way! Was kicking myself for not getting the manor last Christmas, and then you folks decided to TLX it, so I'm VERY excited. The props page has some images, I know, but--as will all addictions--I'd like more (^_-)v

Thank you in advance!

LOL I classify films like that as 'Guilty Pleasures'. HellHouse sits alongside Lifeforce in my 'dumb but fun' category.

The '63 Haunting (directed of course by Robert Wise) is a masterpiece of suspensful storytelling. The editing and use of sound to build tension is achieved so well, and at a level almost never equalled by its contemporaries and more recent films in the same genre.

The remake of The Haunting was a dissapointment for me too. There is much to appreciate in the artistic design (and some pretty nice early CGI), but the plot was muddied to the point of embarrasment. Liam Neeson looked like he wanted to phone his performance in...

Back to Shellendrak though, and very much looking forward to purchasing the new wing.

I haven't been through all the TLX threads here and was wondering what happens when a product like Shellendrak gets the 'treatment'. Do owners of the original product get a dicount on the upgrade? From what I have read it is obvious that a lot of effort goes into the modification of the files.

I don't own any TLX upgraded products, and I definitely didn't mean to step on toes by asking the question. Just unsure of the process that has happened with other products.
