    I have been off the forums for waaaaay too long, but still working on terrain. Dug out an old project and worked on it a bit: fully light up roof tops table. Here are some pics

    @WiseKensai and @natetehaggressor were kind enough to beta test and... meh, needs lots more work. I got some really good feedback on where to go next though.

    Here are some closeups of the radio tower. Its designed to prevent placement on the highest part effectively making it a two story with 6 inches of ladder between stories. It is meant to act as the highest ground on the board.

    Bassis was a kids toy astronaught tower i will link below (dont know the name). The antena are those little table that come in pizza boxes, pens, plasticard, cheap plastic paint brushes, and the inside of a shampoo pump bottle for the very top. One string of ten battery powered $1 shop xmas lights runs from top to bottom. Bird droppigs are rubbed sage from my spice wrack. Nest is a desert grass tuft (like for basing) that i covered in thin glue and rolled to shape, then used mustard seeds for eggs.

    I quite like the whole effect, though it sucks to transport (as does the whole table).

    Next update will be on holo signs made from plastic containers (tupper ware, xbox cases etc)

    I'll just leave this batrep here for posterity: Rooftop Table Beta Test

    There are more pictures in the batrep of the table in action, for those interested.

    I love it. I can tell a lot of the pieces have been recycled, but none of them look out of place. Absolutely awesome. I would steal the idea, if my workbench wasn't already overflowing with unfinished projects.

    Very nice work. A pro tip about this:

    This sort of plastic can be filed with a fine file or even a nail file to tidy up the ragged edges of the cuts and to smooth the curves.
