Ok, so I want to add a warp rifts to my Eldar Warp Spider bases - either behind them, hovering in the air as if they've just stepped through, or beneath them as if the warp is flaring up around their feet.
The problem is, I'd ideally like the warp bits to be transparent... Is it possible to melt flying bases and then have them retain their transparency once they set? Or can you think of any modelling supplies I could scour eBay for that might work?
The closest I've come to finding something that could work is with acrylic beads shaped like small flowers (here) that, with some encouragement, could possibly look like a wormhole of sorts. I could cut them up and then use plastic glue to stick them back together, but again I don't know if they will remain transparent. It's ambitious I know, but I love the idea...
Thoughts? Ideas? Am I really mad, or just eccentric?
One thing my hobby store and I for a terrain did was:
Found a really nice picture of a nebula! (Try NASA they have some wonderful pics or google it and search photos from there) Then using that picture we found we print it to a transparent paper (used for presentations) and stuck that to the terrain where we wanted it!
Easy to do and with low money needed! 8Y
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
You could also use the plastic of transparent PET bottles.
Just cut out about the form you want, heat it and have some fun trying to get little whirls and stuff into it. Carving into the heated material should work. But be careful not to burn you fingers with this stuff. It will get very hot!!! And try to keep it from braking. It is a hell to try and glue a piece of PET to another piece of PET...

Cool idea chasut, I would probably do something like that, and like cut the model in half so he's stepping through.
Maybe you could get a non-stick surface, paint glue on in an interesting vortexy shape, and then peel it off.
like so? :
a whole lot more eldar examples from here:

Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

I'm going to highly suggest the use of what I call "overhead sheets", or translucent vellum, for making this. If this doesn't ring a bell, think of it as very thin, flexible, transparent plastic which you can mark or paint on. Then just use a ring of metal from a craft store to make a frame in which to glue to the sheet. It should look great. Hope this helps!
As cool as that looks, stationary portals wouldn't be very practical, they kinda make a tear in the warp and walk through.
