Hirst Arts Bridge Inspired by Video Game

Last week while I was working on the sewer tiles in the den my wife was playing a PC game called Divinity – Original Sin.  Occasionally I would look up and see what was going on when things start getting a little excited.  At one point I looked up and saw this bridge and said “Whoa – I need to build that!”  So…

The inspiration:

I started by using some of the balcony support blocks from the 3″ Tower mold #79 and floor tiles from the Egyptian Floor Tile mold #290:

I wanted to give the bridge a little more length so I extended the middle a couple of inches.  This build was a challenge because I actually had to assemble the entire piece upside down:

I added pillars from the Gothic Arena Mold #42 and let it dry overnight before flipping back over:

I built a stair case based on Ruined Field stone Tower tutorial on the Hirst Arts website:

This bridge will align itself with the castle project, the Narthrax tower and give the dungeon set some vertical interest.

I added a few details to the ledges just to break up the flatness:

I can’t comment on the game play and although it appears that most of the PC game is outdoors it is still full of inspiration for terrain builders and every time I look up I see something else I “need to build”!

Here are a few screenshots I found on Google:
