You know the kind of thing, - very popular addition to various fantasy worlds, - but how would you suggest I make one as a printed paper terrain piece? I'm not talking about a particularly large island by the way, - one big enough to put a medium sized tower on or perhaps a small copse of trees with a waterfall spilling down the side of the island, or a not too large ruin.
I did consider taking something like Fat Dragon's Mountains and Cliffs set and modifying some of the pieces considerably to create the base of the island. Light and strong is the design criteria so while I could do a major crafting exercise to make a 3D island using lots of corrugated cardboard and hot glue or start carving up styrofoam I don't particularly want to. Storage isn't a problem as this is my house, my daughter is always deeply burrowed into her software development work and doesn't mind what I do, so I can store stuff where I please.
I have a good sized table that I built a Lego town on, only while I wasn't so well my cat 'Devastator the Terrible' (not really her name) went and busted it all. If I was to clear away the ruins I'd have a great place to start laying out a fantasy landscape (While patiently waiting for the Elven Terrain kickstarter to bear fruit).
Any suggestions, methods and ideas on building a floating island or two would be gratefully received
