Dungeons & Dragons Airship

Why walk when you can fly?


So a couple of weeks ago when me and my D&D chums had decided on a date to play again I came up with an idea to spice up the upcoming session.

I am still running the Rise of Tiamat dungeon and one of the chapters asked for an ambush type attack for the unsuspecting PC's, so I decided to run this out in the wilds of Faerun and for the party to arrive in style. My original idea was for the party to arrive together in a huge steam powered airship, but I couldn't find the right stuff to build it with and due to a split in the party I had to re-write the encounter so that the PC's arrive in who smaller groups.

Any way, after much searching on Google I finally got a plan together and started to build the airship for the game

Below are the pictures, enjoy.


Bases were made from a resin cast model, these were WWII landing craft.


I decided to add some blue LED's to the base to give the ship a magical glow.

Main cabin was a cardboard house that I bought from Table Top games



I hid the batteries and wires as best I could inside the cardboard house and then weighed the "door" down with pennies

Lights on.

Mast added and base.
I made the base from a piece of thin MDF and propped up the model with some clear acrylic rods


Main sail added.
Downloaded from Drive Thru RPG.
Dave Graffam models


Port and aft sails added

Crew.....sort of
