So, I was about to sit down and start building a moc, when I realized... "I have no idea how to do the base."

See, the idea is that it's... at the top of a mountain, or there's a large chasm under it... basically, it's a castley sort of structure built on top of a series of bottomless pits.

But... I'm not really sure how to represent the face that there's is no base... on the base. A couple of ideas I had were black (to represent darkness, for chasms); sky blue (not that I have enough of it... to represent sky); white (against my white photo backdrop, it could be taken as nothingness); trans clear (might have enough of that, but only in 1x2 plates... so it'd have to be above another colour, which might look odd); or just have no base at all (so it's resting on just the bases of the towers or whatever).

That last one seems aesthetically best to me and I think that's the one I'll use, but it might cause structure issues if the rest of the MOC is too spread out.

So I figured I'd post this and see what you guys think, which one you like best or if you have any other ideas.

I'd say either no base, or a white base so you can wash it out or photoshop it out after taking photos. Smile

That seems to be the general consensus on other forums as well... think I'll just go for no base, saves bricks. lol!

Why not go nuts and make the mountain peak poke out above the clouds?

Hmm.... good idea. But then I'd need a design for clouds... scratch

Do a flat base, with white and medium blue, and if you have white arches you can make it 3D...Just a thought.
