It seems to be solid, but the rope is real rope. It's definitely dipped in or painted with something to stiffen it, but it's not as fragile as I would imagine the trees are. It's about as durable as the DF resin line, in my opinion. But I'm not willing to do a durability test. ;)

I have to ask, only owning some of their trees.
The trees are hollow and very fragile, are the rope bridges bulkier parts solid resin or like the trees?
I understand the rope pieces are probably fragile, I'm asking about the two end bases.
Only concerned because the trees are fairly thin and very brittle.

Thanks, Bill

I agree with both of you.
Agreed - you cant have enough bridges, roped, vaulted or otherwise :)
I spoke to Kirk last Sunday. The MBA bridge will be an add on in the August Kickstarter.

Just in case no one has mentioned it recently, a ROPE BRIDGE would be awesome!

I think the encounters should include lots of elevations.

I keep the pillow ticking in a box. I use black and gray for battlefield effects.

I am finishing up 24 4" by 4" lava floor tiles for the Massive darkness.

The Lighting effect was created by holding an LED coaster in one hand and the phone in the other. :lol: :lol:

The stair parts William was asking about are on the top side of the photo holding the bridge.

Fog monsters are cool! I am afraid they make a mess. Painted pillow ticking or even cotton wool is often more practical.

This is the bridge I started yesterday. I base coated it. PVA/white glue takes longer to dry with foam because the air can not get to it. I will dry brush it tomorrow.
Cant make anymore of a mess than my 11 year old daughter!

But agree you don't want anything that would absorb water anywhere near your fog monster and ventilate the room after use and would not recommend prolonged use.

Cool bridge though and that cotton wool is really effective and great for a static terrain piece. Fabulous lighting too :)
