So I find that I am throwing 1-2 of these things in the recycling every month, and every time I do I think to myself that there must be something more useful I can do with them:
The obvious idea was to turn them into big hats, but they’re too large for chorf infantry in my book. Here’s one with a Mantic Immortal for scale reference:
(Yes, I know I said I wasn’t buying any CDs until my squats were painted but I have no willpower)
They might be about the right size to sit on a bull centaur, though I don’t have one here to compare size against.
But it seems to me that the hat idea is the most obvious use, but perhaps it isn’t the smartest one. It’s a well engineered little doohickie, it has this nice patterned texture and these interesting cutouts and I’m sure SOMETHING interesting could be made from it. Maybe a brazier or something?
So I thought I’d mine other people’s imaginations, since a lot of you here seem to have magical vision when it comes to this sort of thing.
So what would you guys do with it? Part of a mini? A component for terrain? Stop overly analysing everything and just throw it in the recycling? If any of you have any ideas, let me know, because at the moment I’m just hoarding trash with no particular purpose in mind.
