Boat and Dock platforms frostgrave ghost archipelago

Recommended Posts

Have been stealing coffee stirrers for a while and thought I should disguise them. 

 

This is a modular set of docks for pirate settings/City docks, ghost archipelago. All I did was make platforms of various heights with layers of foam core board. Then Iaid cross pieces and laid the decks on top, just using different thicknesses of coffee stirrers. The stanchions are just pva glued to the side of the foam core, under the decks rather than showing above them. I painted the foam core black and am painting the wood using the Crafting Muse video on YouTube as a guide. I won't be basing these. 

The boat is a lucky find. It is a decoupage model ocean liner. I cut the top off and had a curved boat shape 15cm / 6" long and perfect for 8 models. Only £1.25 on sale. All I did was lay a deck of coffee stirrers then took some of the bits I cut off and glued them back on to the sides. Painted like the Dock. I don't want to add seats, mast, similar detail to this model to maximise how many based minis can stand in it.

Nice work! I was just starting to noodle about a scenario involving moored Heritor ships this morning, and docks would be great for that...

      About this project
      Hello! We are Small Terrain Miniature Scenery, a small business run by myself (Andy) and my partner, Donna.
      Last year we launched our first ever Kickstarter to raise money for a new studio. The campaign was a huge success, that not only bought in much needed capital but an amazing new customer base.
      Since then we have had a second successful Kickstarter project with our "Take Cover!" sandbag range. Based on this we have decided to follow up with another project based around "Bricks and Mortar" themed terrain. Although aimed at  28mm WW2 systems like Bolt Action, these pieces will be more than suitable for 40K or modern settings like "The Walking Dead".
      We are looking to raise £500 to pay for the production of our new resin bricks and mortar themed terrain. The money will be spent on make both the masters and production moulds for this range.
      We have a great choice of pledge levels on offer that won't break the bank. You can also find all the measurements for each product at the bottom of the page so why not take a look!

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      @malefactus sent me some old Games Workshop plastic night goblins, and instead of putting them together properly I decided to stick the heads on the bodies of some Frostgrave plastic gnolls.
       

       
      There's another one but he's badly unbalanced (in more ways than one) and keeps falling over.
