    RuinCcake pillars are just the right size to dress up ruins and add some hard cover for troops in desert or jungles , ect … I fill mine with expanding foam then hack them up for mounting .

    The shorter one also make great statue bases.

    They also look good for for archways at large/government entrance’s for a centre piece on the gaming table.

    @boaz if you hunt about you can find older cake pillars made from plaster. Less messing about having to fill them, just drop them on concrete and naturally shatter ^^

    Or you could be more directed and precise in your damaging

    Yeah. Wedding cake pillars are great for terrain. Not so easy to find plaster ones nowadays but plastic ones are dirt cheap. None of the pics above are working. I shall try and load some pics of the terrain i made for shadespire.

    @warzan  Cheers. They were really quick and easy to make. I’m happy with them and they stop my shadespire plans going horribly wrong when i realise that i cant go across the blocked hexes on the map which aren’t quite shaded-out enough in my opinion.

    Knew it was just a matter of time for the pic upload thingy to get a fix …

    … these are from an unfinished set I brought with me when I moved … I left a desert set and jungle set , both having ruins (with pillars) in them …

    Another cheap and easy terrain trick … seen a little in the above pics … try running old model / mini plastic sprue through a hand cranked meat grinder … instant rubble that glues to plastic terrain or base easy peasy and paints up just fine … by the by them old grinders are cheap in 2nd hand stores or at yard sales …
