Very nice article Azog, easy to follow and good pictures ...
Perfect scenery for beginners and even advanced terrainmakers I think. I think I'll give it a try soon! I need some of those anyway!

Well done Pete, and thanks for submitting this article - the very first new article in the Library from one of our members.

The techniques are easy to follow, the descriptions are well written and the results are great.

I somehow managed to miss this great article. Very nice step-by-step guide with excellent pictures that make following the whole process easy. The method presented is perhaps not the most sophisticated one but the final result is very impressive.

I will definitely try it when I have more free time!

Hmm - this one slipped in under my radar too. A very good article on thr sort of multipurpose terrain piece that can be used in many scenarios or in creating some rock feature for a diorama or a vignette.

So it was nothing to do with Ozzy .... ah well! Maybe he will appear in part 2! ;-)

Hello,

I'm new to the lord of the rings Miniature's so i wanted to make some scenery, but i didn't know how and i ended up finding this website. i have been looking through them and plan on making a lot of these, but one thing i cant understand (Forgive me if its something that seems stupid to the more experience players) but, why not just use a normal rock?

Thanks in advance,
Talbot

P.S I've seen all your Guides Dagorlad and i think they are great, i was just curious on this one :D

of course you can use normal rocks but sometimes they lack the detail that you want to achieve and they are a lot more heavier than polystyrene, so if you want to make a gaming board and you want to be able to move it around polystyrene is what you are looking for.

Thanks so much for this article. I've not made a lot of scenery so far and was really keen to make something simple that looks good. The instructions were so clear and I've now made a couple of these and they look great!
