Sur la pont...

While I am waiting for the prototype kits of the walls and watchtower, I thought I'd play around with a few bridge ideas..

These first ones are variations on the Tew-Fah Bridge. Same length, but rising from a single storey to a double storey in height. These images are just shown as the very basic block styles without detail - the slopes on them are soo great to be viable so some steps are going to be necessary in the finished models.

One bridge could be made into a ground floor ramp of sorts and form a modular staircase rising up to meet buildings. With a little thought, a number of different layouts could be achieved.

These seem to be good options to help make 'platformer' style table layouts. Particularly good for games where line of sight and such are important or skirmish games like Mordenheim.

On another bridge theme though - what if you just want to cross a river?  These block models are curved in both the x and y axis but each individual styrene piece is only curved in one axis so its probably as close to a double curved shape as I can make easily. Again with a little thought it's possible to make these into a modular bridge type. And by making the top of the bridge a single storey tall, It will mate with existing buildings to make a grand entrance perhaps...

Welcome also to my latest follower Galpy. Pull up a comfy chair and roast some marshmallows over the fire.
