Real Terrain Hobbies does some amazing work showing off impressive tabletop builds that would be a dream to roleplay, skirmish, or wargame on. Their latest project has now come to an end though as they showed off the final steps in creating an absolutely amazing The Shire board for Middle-earth and The Lord Of The Rings fans.

This project has been in the works for a while and Real Terrain Hobbies has been showcasing the process HERE in more detail but I think you'll agree, the final result was worth it. Whilst some of the work was done with a bit of the ol' DIY many of the resources used here came from Woodland Scenics.

It all came together to create a frankly stunning tabletop that I would be happy to play on. I could imagine playing out some of the final moments of the books as Frodo and his fellow Hobbits battle Sharkey and his Ruffians for the fate of The Shire.

Talking of Hobbits, Real Terrain Hobbies is also looking to head to Kickstarter soon with 3D Printable Files of the very Halfling dwellings that he used as part of the table build. These are going to be coming to Kickstarter later this year and you can sign up to be notified of more news HERE.

These look superb and they would be a shoo-in for anyone seeking to replicate even a fraction of the tabletop that Real Terrain Hobbies was able to achieve. As someone who is really into their Middle-earth gaming on the tabletop, it will most likely be pretty hard to resist building something Shire-like in the near future.

An Army Of Hobbits!

You couldn't have an excellent Shire board without some Hobbits to go on it. So, Real Terrain Hobbies also drafted in the help of wargaming YouTuber Zorpazorp to paint up a couple of forces for him. You can see how this painting project came together in the video below!

This really was a labour of love and I can't imagine how hard it would have been to send those miniatures out of the door! Regardless, they ended up looking fantastic on Real Terrain Hobbie's tabletop.

I always love big, grand projects like these. It shows that anything can be achieved once you put your mind to it. You'll fail a bit BUT it will all pay off in the end! Maybe it won't be so hard to build all of the tables from the Quest Of The Ringerbearer after all?

I hope that has given you a burst of inspiration for today!
