More Terrain, an Unknown Giant and a Caption Competition

Apologies in advance if this update is rambling and makes little sense but I've only had around 2 hours sleep due to my nose and eye deciding for some reason that they were under attack and the only thing they could do to fight the imaginary invaders was to produce millions of gallons of tears and snot along with blasting said tears and snot around the place with bone shaking sneezes. I was seriously contemplating gouging off my nose at around 4 this morning as I'd probably have slept better with a gaping hole in my face.
Anyway moving on, not a huge amount of mini progress this week as I spent my time making some more ruins which seems to be what I do as a form of procrastinating. Before we get to the terrain I finished the unknown Giant who still needs IDing

I'm not sure if he needs something in the way of tattoos or war paint to break up the big areas of skin.

Here's the terrain that I put together this week, it's more hunks of polystyrene covered in poly filla:

Here's the full thing that for some reason I couldn't get in focus but these two shots are more so you can see the size, it's mounted on an old 12" LP.
Here's some arty close ups:

Here's some pics of all the ruins together, with a roving band of Villagers and Gnomes searching for their lucky sheep. The pictures are a little on the dark side as my spot-lamp is on the way out but it kind of adds a moody feel to the shots:

Here are a few shots of how I hope the new terrain piece will act as a kind of raised arena or centre piece for future skirmishes:

That's it for this update apart from to leave you with a Caption Competition for the pic below, the best entry (judged by me and the missus) by 5pm GMT on Sunday (9th Sept) will get a random couple of mini's from my lead mountain, so get your comedy hats on and make me laugh.


  1. 'I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass.' et cetera.

    More cool minis and terrain!

  2. 'Daddy loves me more and you know it...'

  3. Sorry, forgot to add - loving the rocky terrain - thanks for the tutorial, by the way.

  4. "If you promise not to eat me, I'll give you the catnip I have in the hand behind my back!"

    I love your terrain!

  5. "I wonder if he would look in the kitty litter for this after I eat it?"

  6. Yup, this is why we rule the planet and you have to beg us for food and mouse-shaped toys. Thumbs.

  7. "I can haz Dwarfburgerz?

    Is it cheating to submit two captions?

    Ah well - in a similar meme-tastic vein -

    "I iz on ur gaming table

    stealin' ur Dwarfz"

  8. "Screw you cat,I'm going home"

    Nice terrain ruins.

  9. Excellent terrain work, really creates an awesome environment.

  10. Cats.

    Mmmmm. I want food now. Failing that I want your attention. If I get neither I will destroy everything you hold dear. Then I will take over the world!!!!! MuHah Hah Hah hah hah. The world I tell you. And maybe I will catch as small bir too. Then I'll sleep on your freshly ironed laundry.

    Or alternatively,

    Why are you keeping me awake with the bright lights and what's all this stuff doing on my bed?

  11. "No, cat, I'm not smaller than you - I'm just far away"

  12. "Hey cat, you'll never guess what I'm hiding in the hand on my back !"

  13. Amazing scenery. Very inspiring!
