Hirst Arts Elements Part II - Altars

I promised I would post a couple of pictures of painted Hirst Arts elements. Here are a couple of altars that I built and painted. These were my first efforts at building and painting.
The great thing about the Hirst Arts elements is that the configurations are endless. Here is a 1 1/2" x 1/2" altar, painted brown. The corners, edges and centre blocks are separate pieces and in 1/4" sections, so you can make something as small as 1/2" x 1/2", or as large as you want.
Here are two 1" x 1/2" altars painted blue and white. I laid the white on too heavily, but it's easy to build new ones, or repaint these.
My favorite altar of the three, and i'm sorry that the picture is so grainy. This 1 1/2" x 1" red altar will be perfect for an evil shrine or the sacrificial altar for a death cult.

Your Hirst posts have really got me thinking about heading this route. I think my wife would kill me! ;)

These look really good -- I would never have guessed these were your first attempt at building and painting. Funnily enough, my favorite is the blue and white set. It reminds me of the interior of an old European church or cathedral. The white doesn't appear to me to be laid on too heavily, though maybe you can see things that don't show in the photo. They all look great to me.

Those are all totally rad. Can't wait until I can get a few hirst arts pieces for myself!
