Hey guys and girls,
since I've gotten my grubby little hands on a new sheet of foamcore, I've started building terrain again. So far I've got a crooked watchtower, more fit for Orks than IG and a few entrenchments. The current project is: a rocket installation.
I've invisioned it as follows:
3 layers of a square with a hole in it (to fit the rocket), the rocket itself in the center and enough bits and bobs at the bottom. Now what I was thinking: how many paintbottle tops should I use as thrusters? 3 or 4?
Also, what can I make the top of? I have the body of the rocket made with the roll of kitchenpaper, but what would lend itself best to make the warhead?
Thanks for any replies!
A drawing might be helpful, Having a hard time imagining what youre planning. I myself am in the middle of planning a missile silo. I would think that majority of the sturcture would be underground, with a very large missile housed inside. If youre using 3 levels of HD polystyrene (ie about 3 inches high?) the bottom of the actual missile would be very far below ground so you wouldnt see the thrusters. If kitchenpaper is the same thing as paper towel tubes (sorry Ive never heard that terminology before). If so then its a pretty big missile, are you having it 'sit' at tabletop level with most of the missile exposed, that would make it a very large target and easily destroyed. Just wondering.
Yeah, it is like a standard toilet paper roll but twice the size.
However, they might differ since I'm not from Canuckistan.
I'll measure it later today (or tomorrow) to give you an indication.
I'll make a quick drawing in paint later. Just to transfer the general jist.
The idea was to make it either a random piece of terrain OR an actual target for a kill-team to destroy. Either way, stand by for drawing!
Ok, i get wht you mean now. I was assuming that the three layers of foamcore would be directly on top of each other to form 'steps', i see now that they are levels. You could try finding some stiff cardboard (like from cereal boxes) and cut out a shape that could roll up into a cone. Might be difficult to deal with the seam. I cant really think of anything off hand that would be that big. The only thing I can think of is the metal cap I have that covers the top of a lava lamp.
well a very cheap and easy thing would be to use paper but that may be too thin for you
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
