Raising the rocks

So following on and inspired from my bronze age round houses I decided to make some more terrain which fits nicely into my models and the way I have based them. My original idea was based on the picture below of some rock bluffs on a grass plain, so a mix of sharp contrasting colours of dry hardy grass, with strong wind exposed rock formations covered in lichens all topped off with a few sparse leafed tree's leading to a denser tree line.

With that in mind I felt it important to build lots of these rock bluffs, so here is what I came up with.

and a close up of one of the bluff formations

I felt I needed some sort of ancient ritual site as well , so came up with this.

As I was really getting into the making of them I also made up these five 40mm ritual stones for use in my unofficial scenario "Powering the Ritual"

If anyone wants I can go into a step by step guide how I made them, its decently not as complicated as the round houses thats for sure but does take a few resources.

let me know what you think and I will keep you posted on anymore terrain productions.

Damn, those are awesome. Your inspiration for them is also very much the way I would envision some 'bronze age countryside', if there can be such a thing.

Fantastic stuff.
What did you use for the rocks - hard styrofoam?

Thanks guys, I am doing a "how to" for them like I did with the houses so I will show you all how to make your own.

I have to say those are really nice.

If you can knock them out in a reasonable time I'd say you could make some money selling your terrain.
