Haunted House Update

Because you demanded it (actually only one person was kind of wondering about it), here's some fresh haunted house action. Finally getting around to the house itself with the addition of windows and front entrance. And yes, that's the twisted, gnarled tree from the 2009 graveyard scene. I'll distort it a little more to fit in here but it's nice to have some ready made props that I can just drop in (click on images to view full size.)

Halfway up the staircase is a small landing with some rusted out wrought iron railing. The missing section is bent out to look like something (or someone) took the plunge right through it.

At the top is the main entrance overhang. The stone wall in front will also get some railings in a similar state of decay.

Quick close-up of the hanging lantern. Not sure how I'm going to properly weather and age this to get that 'decrepit' look.

Finally, here's a look at the tower with added dormers and railings on the top lookout. I'll twist and age all that too.

Well, still got a ways to go here. The roof needs worn and missing shingles. The sides need some crooked and weathered clapboards. Basically the whole thing needs to get more haunted. But I'll keep at it and keep you updated.
