Dwarf tomb

Monuments and reliefs are easy to make with spare miniatures or their parts

Tomb of a dwarf lord

I think the pictures explain the idea how to make this thing:

1. Build the basic shape of the tomb from a stiff card stock

2. Glue some bits, especially spare shields, to its sides

3. Paint the whole thing (black undercoat then grey drybrush)

4. The epitaph was typed on a computer and then printed and varnished

See the pictures as separate pages: Tomb of a dwarf lord * Unpainted dwarven tomb * Fantasy cemetery

There is a fine balance in making a tabletop hill the right mix of a gaming token, a unit display stand and an eye-candy. When you let it slide in one of the directions it will lose its unique capabilities of elevating your wargaming experience to the next (excuse the pun) layer.

When you are building your tabletop castle you may get carried away with all the alcoves, plasterwork, gargoyles and other medieval gubbinz. Real castles were often way much simpler than that.
