Great writeup Wm.

Keep it up
thanks for sharing

Coffee! lots of Coffee! I have been working on this background for over a year. The Universe background and Saharamanji. Plus I haven't posted "Styler's Point" yet. Kind of doing my own sorta Space Opera thing here, hoping to inspire others.
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

You're going to have to work a floating village into that narrative!  :)

Gives me a good reason to resurrect the old "Barge Town" project!

Sci-fi barge town? Hmmmm, I'm getting this vibe of Jabba's barge with all the little skiffs all lashed together and floating over a desert. It is an interesting mental image.

Good guess, the "Barge Town" project was/is that I was working on is based on an idea of a Post Apocalypse earth has a 600 foot sudden rise of the seas, power grids go down, conflicts break out around the world trying to stop the flood of people trying to get way from the rising waters yet over whelming other countries resources, food shortages are abound because farm lands are flooded, floating towns on barges pop up along the new coast lines because folks just couldn't relocate, were left behind or were not allowed to seek safer grounds.

Of course a floating town on sand skiffs would be really cool too!  :D

It would be a great idea
I'd imagine the gravitic motors or fans on those things would be enormous to keep those things afloat as would the power plants needed to supply energy to them.
Or go solar? With large areas of surface area given to solar farms with the town underneath them.
Needs a lot of planning for sure.
Keep 'em coming.

Maybe a floating village in the still functioning canals of a long forgotten empire?  Donít limit yourself to a post apocalyptic Earth scenario.  Floating villages canít be an Earth only anomaly.  :)

I have an idea of rocky terrain under them to help hide the supports. Each section barge/boat would be it's own piece that way can used as just one piece or many using catwalks and gangways connecting them all together. I just have to remember not to make them to large!  lol

Re: My 15mm Sci-Fi Projects First Sculpture (7/14/2020)
« Reply #194 on: July 15, 2020, 12:12:40 AM »
Okay so here is my first sculpture, ever! so I took the dive and bought some Green Stuff and some tools plus 1/4 inch washers to which I use also for basing my figures (Which in storage are sitting on magnetic tape glue to the bottom of Craft/tackle boxes) So as to keep me some what with in the boundaries of the washer.

So with out a real plan I figure lets just see where this goes and here is what turned out;





Here is is with a GZG 15mm Figure;





I needed some creatures and this is the first, plus my first attempt at sculpting, there is I feel a lack of creatures in the Sci-Fi range of 15mm, fantasy games have a fair choose but I wanted something a little more.

So I will be doing some sketches and see what I come up with.

Thanks for looking/
