Simple Bridges for Sartosa

12.30.2009

Post by Bill

So, for our Sartosa Campaign, that’s still moving along, months later, we needed to have some ready made bridges to go along with our stone platforms.  These are super simple to make and they took longer to paint than anything else.

Popsicle sticks or craft sticks, they all work!

Each bridge ranges from 4 inches to 8 inches long, they all vary in length.  There are two runners on either side that are made up of 1/4″ basswood dowels (square dowels).  They were all put together using wood glue and they seem to be holding together just fine after many uses.  I’m hoping these will last, but in reality, they are easy to make, so I could always make more.

Painted beastial brown and then washed with a black wash

Here's an example of our Sartosa Terrain in a basic layout

These bridges will also have other uses, gang planks between our ships as well as ramps from our modular dock that was created.  More posts on these are in the queue and you’ll see more as we go along.  I’d also like to mention that I’m planning to start  posting more about the hobby in general here, as well as about terrain.  These posts will not go away, but they will be scattered in between other hobby related items, for instance, I started playing Warhammer 40k, and I’ll be posting the hobby side of things here for my shiny new Imperial Guard army.
