PostSubject: Floating Summoning Stone   Wed 2 Jun 2010 - 21:50

Here is a piece of terrain that I made recently for a competition over at TG. The competition was to represent rocks. I was inspired a bit by the recent movie Avatar. Initially I wanted to create a piece with a herd stone for my beastman warbad, but as I got to working it took on a life of its own. I intended for this to be a playable piece of terrain for our Mordheim Empire in Flames table.

The idea is that off in some clearing there is this circle of power. The details are left somewhat to imagination (or fluff as needed), but needeless to say something went wrong or the power couldn't contain the magic etc..

The aftermath is what you see here, the magic used at the circle ripped the ground apart. The circle of power now cracked in two floats above its original location the residual magic keeping the resulting rock islands floating.









You can see all the WIP pictures on my Pbase site.

Let me know what you think.

The piece is actually very strong, while doing the engineering on the piece I did a stress test. The piece as it is finished normally sits about 3 1/2 inches above the the base.



Loaded with figures it drops to about 2 - 2 1/2 inches but even with a good deal of figures it doesn't seem to go lower than that. The test with figure was metal, including an older Ogre, but 2 are plastic.

Thanks guys.

I was waiting for the table WIP shots till I had a little bit more to show, right now I only have a few WIP shots and some 1/2 painted details. I will make a post for it soon.

My wife is due with our 2nd child any day now so I haven't done much work lately.

Is it just the bridge part that is holding this up? That is very impressive! and a very cool idea.

I do believe it is just that wire. Brilliant made! And gives the impression that it really floats!

Best wishes to the Mrs. and good luck when the kid decides to come out.
