Today I got another BIG haul!!
Starting with the biggest pieces. These two are about 26 by 24 inches, though it's not the highest quality or strongest foam I've found. I don't know what I'm doing with hardly any of this (if anything), so feel free to make suggestions!
These two big blocks are also 26 inches long, and are similar to some of the other chunks I've acquired. The usual castle/fortress/high landmass ideas come to mind. So far I haven't thought of a good use for the various indentations and what they could turn into when widened or punched through to the other side.
Ship for scale! XD (The Thomas Jefferson was not sunk in CTO lol)
I took this one to show the large size in addition to how deep the farthest indentation is.
More nice flat boards, these ones are about 13x17 and 13x12. Could be cut into a variety of things - good for bases of large objects or for making a lot of similar wild islands.
Random pieces... the one at the left is cool since it has been sheared off like a beach slope, so it's almost good to go without any additional shaping. The L/corner shaped pieces are intriguing to me, but not much other than castle walls/etc has come to mind so far. Especially when turned upside down, perhaps like a breakwater or levee. Now that I think about it, perhaps they could be like exterior fortified docks on the edges of harbors.
The smallest pieces are actually what I found most exciting!! DRYDOCKS!!! XD
These are cardboard moldings that you could find easily - they are from the tops and bottoms of boxes that hold fluorescent tubular lightbulbs. Here they could be PERFECT as drydocks for ships that are being built (such as in Captain Vendari's campaign ruleset that has been incorporated into the World ruleset), or ships that need extensive repair work. Almost as soon as I saw them I knew they would be a perfect size for this idea.
Here I envision a massive amount of drydock space connected to a larger harbor/fortress area. Maybe sometime I'll be able to have a full Royal Navy Dockyard!
Not nearly as good or historical an idea, but flipping them over reveals yet another solid submarine hideout spot.
The whole haul. This alone could be turned into a solid entry for this contest, and this is just a portion of all the stuff I've been accumulating since August. Though most of this likely won't be used in the contest, I'll try to save it for future projects. There's only so much stuff I'll be able to make in the coming months, but regardless of the contest it would be great to utilize the resources I now have available.
Any ideas/feedback welcome!
