'Desert' Isle finished!

The weekend saw me finish work on my Desert Isle... OK, its not exactly 'desert' like, it's got a fair bit of grass cover for starters! But you get the idea I am sure, right? ;-)

Anyhoo, I went round the edge of the cliffs and beaches with some Woodland scenics Realistic Water, to add a 'wet look'. Once dry I then mixed some white paint and Water Effects together and went round again adding in wavelets on the beaches, and water splashes against the rocks.

I also painted the top of one of my games tables sea turquoisey blue (It's a Dulux paint, local shade known as 'Otaki Forks')


So there you go, basic Isle, suitable for many settings and scenarios... but you know I couldn't resist dressing it up a bit, so dug out my jungle vegetation and some rocks and let my pirates have a brief explore!



"Arr, there be treasure here mate!"



"So, where's that darned 'X' ?"  !!!



Hope to see it in action, sometime soon! Though I will need to finish off my little jollyboat, so my pirates can at least get from ship to shore! ;-)

  11. Great work Scott. The island is much bigger than I had imagined and works really well. I'm imagining a LOTR beach landing and siege now!

    1. I agree, I made a Corsairs themed ship many moons ago, but never got round to painting up the crew... now I have a reason, and of course some Gondorians to defend it... I've got about 30 half painted on the painting table at the mo', just trying to find time to finish them off...
