I built myself some shoals from scratch, and from scraps, and they came out fairly well I think! So I figured I would shars my little tutorial. Sorry wrong link, now fixed!

Nice terrain items but you are using the wrong name for them.

Shoals are submerged features whereas your models are above water level.

I would call them islets or rocks.

Nice rocky reefs! Keep up the good work.

Aaww man, I have been using the wrong word for years. Oh well..

Very nice. I think they would work for most wargaming scales.

Yes, I think you can make them quite a lot bigger if needed, and certainly a lot smaller
