Ok so I'm not going to try baking plastic models with FIMO, but has anyone ever tried it with metal?

Alternatively, has anyone just made small FIMO parts? I'm planning on doing a Blue Scribes model and making some scrolls for it, then depending on my success I might make a disc too (actually planning on making the disc a giant book with a scribe writing in it).

Im not sure with Fimo you can get thin enough sheets to represent scrolls. I would likely try heating and bending some plasticard (sheet styrene). I would also suggest you start with plasticard as the book cover and binding for your scribe so it is perfect, then sculpt the pages and such.

Not having a good hobby/train store near me I picked up some sheet styrene recently in the form of a 'for sale by owner' sign at the local hardware store. works the same!

I do most of my sculpting with green stuff, unless its a weapon or something I want very hard with sharp edges, then I use a two part epoxy from the hardware store meant for fixing ceramics or pipes or something.. drys like a rock in like 15 minutes and can be carved with an xacto or sanded with sand paper/dremel.

Sounds like you know what you're doing better than me, I'll see what's around and what I can do with it.
Still going to five the Fimo a go though, since I already have some lying around. Pretty sure there's some sheet styrene here too, so I'll compare my results and see what is easier/looks better.
