As I was working mostly on Sci-Fi terrain and miniatures for the last month or so, I needed a distraction. I tend to get bored rather quickly if painting or modelling within a single period or army - and doing some pieces for fantasy gaming seemed an obvious way to go.
If you happen to be in a railroad modelling shop, you may take a look at a stuff called 'Decorflex' or textured foam. These are large (12,5cm x 37cm in most of the cases) textured and prepainted sheets imitating various surfaces. A package of two such sheets costs about $6-$7 - a reasonable price, I'd say.
There are a couple of terrain projects I plan to use them for somewhere in the future (namely: a 15mm Helm's Deep) - but at the moment I decided to go for a couple of small pieces for LotR/Mordheim/Song of Blades and Heroes gaming.
But enough talking - what can these be used for?

I got back to work on a Splintered Light miniature I have started quite some time ago - a giant I plan to use in my Orc army. I presume I will be able to post pictures of a finished miniature somewhere next week.
No Sci-Fi? Wait a minute...
