Welcome Back to the Labyrinth

"We have been away far too long, my friends," Ashoka declared, his face lit by the eldritch green glow of his staff. "But we have finally returned to the labyrinth whence our adventures first began."

"Just imagine the treasures that lie within," said Yun Tai, flexing his mighty muscles. "Wealth enough to live in luxury the rest of our days."

"And arcane artifacts of great power," added Ashoka his words dripping with avarice. "All ours for the taking!"

"Umm...guys?" Nysa interrupted. "Do you hear something dripping?"

Scratch-Built Hill

I've been devoting a lot of energy, lately, to painting my Warhammer Dwarf army, and I've also been building some terrain to match it.  My first ever attempt at terrain building was my dwarf fortification, and I've just finished a hill.




The top of the hill is large enough to hold a large unit of Thunderers or Quarrelers, or a couple of artillery pieces.

This was a pretty simple piece; I just cut out a kidney-shaped piece of styrofoam insulation, sanded it and glued it to a piece of MDF board for durability, then took some smaller pieces of styrofoam, shaped them with sandpaper and glued them around the edges.  Painted, added grass and snow, and done.

Very impressive! Hard to believe its a first attempt.

Thanks, Trey! I bought GW's How to Build Wargames Terrain, which has lots of advice and ideas.

Great stuff! Be sure to share pics of the hill in play!

Will do, Jim; I hope to have a whole bunch of Dwarf terrain built for my next Warhammer campaign. My next project will be a dwarven brewery.

I'm digging the grass and the snow. Very cool. Happy Halloween and I hope you have an oogie boogie week.

Thanks, Whisk! I've spent the weekend watching zombie movies, so I'm in the right frame of mind. Tomorrow I take my vampire daughter trick-or-treating.
