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|
|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.|
