Ishoo Wun-Oh-Free: Albion Stone Circle

Reader with keen ears and heads to match will know I am currently embroiled in The Hoodling's 'The Shadows Return' campaign, in which I have been leading a large squid on a merry and largely random tour around Albion. This has prompted the obvious conclusion - HGC does not have enough stone circles. Or more accurately, we don't have one which is flexible enough to be played over. This, coupled with the cold weather meaning I have to wait quite a while for glue and paint to dry on the second Khador Tower I am making for men of distant lands, seemed like a good opportunity...
I have always planned to make a stone circle for TFH. There was one in the great red 'How to make Wargames Terrain' book of my youth, which lead to me always wanting one, even if I was only playing 40K and Necromunda at the time. Thus, early this morning, I rummaged around to find some CNC Workshop scatter terrain bases HGC won in ages past at the VICCs, and set to work...
A wandering Grot appears!










And there you are, hippo fans! I should have the mighty Khador Kommission done soon, after which I shall embark upon the Necrotite Rig, which has been voted in with spectacularly good timing since I'm about to start a Cryx army...

    1. Summoning Fenbeasties or building stone circles?

    2. Both are good ideas, obviously.

  2. This approach has the advantage that the components don't actually have to be in a stone circle at all. So it's more flexible than stone circles we may or may not already have...

  3. It took a moment to realise that there was a dark emissary in the pics, but it did elicit a giggle. Onward to Albion. I do like the separate rocks for the circle, Hoodling is right, more flexible.

  4. Thanks for a great tute as usual Hippo!

    Question though, what kind of foam is that exactly?

    1. High density extruded insulation foam boards. They are sold by insulation specialists, and occasionally from large hard ware stores (more commonly in Europe and America apparently, they've only just started to be used in Australia). Any pink, blue or in this case yellow foam will work. Avoid the white expanded foam with the visible balls in it.

      BTW, you commented twice, so I've only published one copy of the comment. I have comment moderation turned on, so your comments will not appear immediately you post them.
