Dystopic Islands

I had a minor brain wave to use some old dvds for bases for various islands and things. I was looking at the oil rigs and thinking that they looked a bit delicate...

In general I have used cur up sheets of cork and then cork pieces for the rock outcrops. The silver pieces are waves that I made from since foil and then glued down with pva. I'm going to add layer of some resin or other too, Then result looked ok on my larger board so we'll have to see whether they transfer over well to these smaller islands.

A simple island with some waves.

A slightly bigger rocky outcropping

Look carefully and you can see the oil rig legs there. I used waves to hide the hole in the middle of the disc

Slightly blurry oil rig legs straddling and island

Same again. legs and rocks

A simple lighthouse. Man I struggled attaching the central tower piece.

  1. Nice! I am a big fan of recycling for hobby purposes. I can't wait to see them painted.

    1. Cheers dude. May take some time for these to be painted though. I've been looking back at my iron warriors and thinking that they need some attention. So many things to paint!
