Custom Human Plank Bridge - done =)

Hi Scaper!

I made a little wood Bridge for HS (my first custom terrain )



Thanks for your advice & ideas Here are some step by step images:


first i placed some small wood pieces to make the bridge snap on the hexes.


glue three wood pieces as base on the edges.


Place the little plankes on the base sticks to check spacing.


Glue them, but not yet the edges, as they will be hexshaped and cutted before glueing and left some spaces, these will be planked later...


Time to check if the bridge snaps onto the hexes in each directions, yep


On a little height.


The black rope.

Next steps:
- Brush the wood into a darker brown tone.
- Make more of the little poles to hold a black rope on each side.
- Some more eyecandy, to make it more heroscape-ish... not sure yet what it could be... any ideas? thx!

ok... second round

missing poles and planks are ready and i think iīm gonna use that spit


one side ready.


structure ready! now iīm going to paint it, so that the woods gets darker, weathered like Dennys said.

Third Round... Paintjob =) Well not yet the Kroot Warrior, but the Bridge (-:


Does it look good? mmmh, to late to change the color anyway... :P


heeey, i like it =)


Detail


really looks a bit like old wood now.


I put the ring screws on one side again to check the rope. the black rope is 4mm this one is thinner, 2mm.


Thinner rope hangs down a bit between the poles that looks good, black rope doesnīt... Perhaps it will be the golden one, letīs see...



So i think this is the last round on this Bridge, there wasnīt missing much, just... The Rope:


a bit of weight to make the rope hang down a bit between the poles.


itīs done =)



Bye, Chicano

Awesome so far, Ch1can0.
Hey by the way, those figures? Nah, they couldn't be....could they?
Are those the Kroot warriors from the glyph contest?

I agree.

Ch1can0, would it be possible to bulid two sections, and make it where they slide into each other? That way you could make it "stretch" longer and shorter? I hope I am explaining well what I mean, but if you were to build two pieces that would make one hell of a long (but compact) bridge for varying terrain.

WONDERFUL!!!
Very great idea.
Question: the two "semihex" piece are build by you? so you have cutted/shaped/glued 3 little wood pieces?

About make it more HSish i think you should not paint it TOO MUCH realistic. Give it the aspect of a piece of plastic with a " fake wood toy paint" and you're in HS style

Very beautiful

Would you like to listen to my music?

You could splinter some of the cross planks, make holes, making it look old and weathered.

Optionally, a trap door?

... yes and thanks again! Actually the blisters lay around quite a while and i decided to assemble and paint them. In the hobby store i saw some wood pieces so i had the idea with the bridge. The kroots arenīt finished yet, but i think the minis are really cool and the size fits well for heroscape. Then the bridge is done i will finish the paintjob on the kroots and make them hs custom.

interesting idea! But i think that would be pretty tricky to build with wood. I should have considered it from start on, but perhaps on the next bridge!

Thank you parduz =) yes, the semihex are made by me, itīs really no big deal, you could place some matches in the gaps between the hexes and then glue something on it, ready
fake wood toy paint.. mmmh, ok perhaps it would fit better to the rest plastic stuff, but i would like to have it bit more realistic...

Old and weathered, sounds good, i hope that the paint i choose will give that effect. A Trap Door.. mmh, tricky i canīt make it on this one, perhaps the next!

Thanks all for your comments

structure ready! now iīm going to paint it, so that the woods gets darker, weathered like Dennys said.

If the finished bridge looks good, perhaps i make some other. First i thought of general-themed bridges, but the themes arenīt to... different i think perhaps i will try it with races, to make an orcish bridge, an evlish bridge and one metal painted soulborg bridge. perhaps +1 defence for figures standing on their bridges..

But now iīm going to paint this one... see ya later scaper...
