Playing around with KS docks, double doors and wooden bridge

Post by NiandoBG » Sat Apr 04, 2020 11:01 am

Hi DF folks,

I painted my wooden KS 6 parts recently. During drying time I started to play a little around with them and thought about different use cases.

That‘s what I came into my mind.

I like theses pieces a lot. They are really cool.
Even if the price for the docks is a little bit high IMO.

Cool, one thing Nate did the other night was take two of the docks and remove any pilings from one side of each and then using some spare pins he had join the two docks side by side to make a 4x4 platform. That platform could even support a City house on it making it a swamp house on stilts kind of thing.

Where is the set of logs/door? you are using on the last few shots as a makeshift roof from? It almost looks like one of the parts in the secret weapon mine set.

You managed a good level of weathering on the wood pilings without going too hard on the lightness. Nice job.

Cool pieces, but I couldn’t justify the prices for basically sticks and twine. Not knocking DF sculptors, but looking at my skillset, and I’d rather pay the bucks for stuff I cannot replicate/construct myself.

I agree that combining the two docks into a single platform was a great tweak.

That‘s quite cool.
Maybe I need a second dock set?

The roof/door is from KS 6 as well. E.g. part of Encounter 2.

Yeah, that’s always difficult. I found out that Karak Stone from Games Workshop work, quite well for me. It is not to bright but you get some highlights.

I wanted to try something else for the wooden bride. I used additionally a terra-cotta drybrush step.

Ah, that explains it, I did not get encounter 2 (just 5, 8,9 and 15) in KS6. always a few nice things in each encounter, but sometimes not enough to make me pull the trigger.

Amazing what come out of just fiddling with pieces - nice work NBG :)

Not seen the Dock trick yet, something you think "well that's obvious" once you see it, but beforehand it just eludes you.

Maybe we should have got more, especially as for the wooden sculpts we bought unpainted as even with our ham pawed painting we can do brown :)

Like how usable the logs from the suspension bridge are, and with Wildlands its looks like there will be more options :)

Very creative, NiandoBG. I do not have such a good imagination for repurposing pieces like that. My wife I suspect is going to give me the “I told you so” look when I show her this thread... since we (on my suggestion) decided against getting the bridge in our Wildlands pledge. It is more multipurpose than I realized.

EEEEK!

My rookie virgin heart this is awesome!

I have the docks and love them (agree the price is a bit high for what you get) plus too many half posts. But I have had the bridge on my radar of should buy and now you have sold it to me and have also sold it to me to paint to match. (I was going to paint the bridges a lighter brown).

These pics and ideas are why I love this forum!
