First attempt at a magic floating island, 6mm scale.

Very neat and tidy – nice work.31/05/2020 at 20:10 #137331ThomastonParticipant
Can you post a guide for how to make this? I’ve been wanting to make one for a long time.
Tired is enough.

I’ll take some pics later but it was dead easy, it’s a Noch hardfoam rock, broken free from the sheet turned over and painted grey. The flat side painted in Stirland mud and dry brushed then given a liberal helping of static grass. The greenery is just bog standard foliage and the building is from the Brigade Models 6mm desert dimes range.

Here’s the progression for the island using a few others I’ve got on the go.

The creme anglaise must be freshly made, then gently cooled and the meringue must be light and sticky. 🙂

Sounds good! I think I’ll go high fantasy and drop the scale a bit so I can try and squeeze a Brigade Models modular castle onto one of them. I just wish I’d picked up some Sky Pirates from Uncharted Seas before Spartan went under.

The fantasy naval units from Microworld might be a good place to go. Some interesting Dwarven ships that might take to modding as “Spelljammer” style air ironclads with a fantasy style.02/06/2020 at 06:51 #137398ThomastonParticipant
Thanks for the in progress photos. Never occured to me before to use upside down hills.
You could probably find some Uncharted Seas stuff on ebay.

Sadly the Sky Pirates are hard to come by (at least for a price I’m willing to pay). I’ve ordered some new smaller scale buildings to add and am thinking I’ll go for the Warlord games Black Seas ships with a suitably Spelljammer makeover.
Death to all fanatics!
