Alright you King and Queen of Torn, or Mr. and Mrs. Torn, or whoever you are, you won your little beauty contest and now you get to park your rear end on a shiny throne and look pretty. And it's gonna be a very shiny throne indeed - it's made of gold-plated AK-47s!
Now just like the Iron Throne in Westeros or wherever, you could have your throne in some dark, damp castle and intimidate all your subordinates that way. But this is Torn City and only noobs, inactives, and multis live in castles. No, your throne needs to be on a Private Island befitting royalty of your stature.
Your island comes complete with a vault full of xanax...
A cooler of energy drinks...
A palm tree, and of course your GAK throne!
Why aren't there two of them? It's a PRIVATE island, I'm sure the last person you want to run into there is the Mr. or Mrs. who's trying to steal half your thunder. You won! Now go kick up your feet and enjoy paradise in private. Your co-victor will get an identical throne of their own (use your imagination, GAKs are expensive).
^ Some work in progress pics. My entry was made from reproduction GI-Joe accessories, painted as GAKs. Enjoy!
A throne fit for a king AND a queen (I mean it should be wide enough right, it's built like a park bench? Surely?) I was gonna make the back Leslie's tombstone but I don't want to anger everyone's favourite gambling enabler, and besides, his punches hurt. Anyhow, on with the photos:
And some saucy production photos:

For the second time I have taken on something that I thought would be 'straight forward' and ended up taking the better part of a week.
The original plan was to make a 'Gangster' version of the Game of Thrones throne, including Gold AKs and a Sledgehammer. After realising I have no idea what I am doing things changed... quickly.
After multiple trips to a lumber yard and giving some money to charity in order to take a bunch of pallets off their hands, Luna helped me size up the throne and start cutting the pallets down to size.
And first major obstacle... Scottish weather kicking in and its raining. So up went the parasol to keep the area as dry as possible, because who has room to store 5+ pallets?
At this point, the outside of my back door started turning into a Lumberyard as better shown. Trying to keep everything dry under a parasol and in the shed was difficult.
After a bit of perseverance, things started to come together, built the frame to sit on, add the slats, and began adding the 'arms'.
I then popped to B&Q to get myself an engraver... because the engraving is just like writing, right? Wrong.
The plan was to have one arm engraved with a list of those who have passed, taking names from here. Thrones were often made and passed down from King / Queen to King / Queen. Since Torn has no Kings and Queens, I think these people come closest. Having known Avus for a little while before his passing, if the people on this list are even 1/10th of the guy he was, I have no doubt they were incredible.
Also - since this throne is going to become a permanent feature of my garden, I can not wait to explain the names to any guests - especially Sexy Suga Kong!
On the other arm, I have included the dates and the winners of the Mr. and Mrs Torn competitions since 2015. Before 2015 there were no 'positions' so I felt 2015 was a decent place to start.
The names are engraved upside down so that you can read them while you sit on the throne. Never forget Torn royalty eh?
And after a full day of failing to engrave we have my entry to Shame of Thrones:
Overall I am really happy with the finished product. I think I will continue working on it over the next few weeks, and add some color here and there. Figure out how to make the names stand out a bit more.
The final size is pretty huge:
The back is 49 inches high. Full width is 43 inches. Depth of the full chair is 31.5 inches. The seat itself is 36 inches wide and 19 inches deep.
Not quite enough for two people, but definitely enough room for a cat and a large man. #NeverMakingAnotherThrone
