Mines of Moria


I needed the pillars for another scenario so I thought I'd paint the whole Mines of Moria terrain set while I'm at it. Pretty basic but it gives me some nice scenics I can scatter around most dungeon tables. I've been playing the older edition of the LOTR game with my kids, and I suppose we'll get to Moria eventually. I have to paint the whole fellowship before that though. And the Balrog!

28mm Winter War trench section

No Winter War set is complete without a trench. Soviets making WW1 style charges against prepared Finnish positions is one of the iconic images of the war, even if in practice it makes for dull wargaming. I actually pretty much completed this during the summer, but it took me quite a while to find a suitable snow product. I was looking at several cheap alternatives, but ended up getting some Woodland Scenics soft flake snow in the end. It worked like a charm for that freshly fallen powdery snow look. I just hope it doesn't become dirty with dust and stuff.
