About a month ago I showed a few of these ice crystals that I had made from cork. No not the best thing to make very clean cut crystal formations from, but I had a shed load of wine corks and they needed using, so I had a go anyway.
I finally got them all painted up and I don't think they came out too bad to be honest, perhaps not ice crystals but they might pass for crystaline rock formations. With a vaguely cold feel to them.
They cost me absolutely nothing but some time to make and I will definitely use them in my games, from Frostgrave to D&D to Five Parsecs.
I also became aware that I often make small pieces of terrain like these in groups of eight. Heavens knows why but it seems I do. There will be further evidence of this in the next week or so.
