My Beasts & Barbarians campaign starts soon, and I wanted to take a few inspirational photos while waiting for the game. These diorama-like photos have only few pieces of terrain, but represent situations that might well be epic moments in a Sword & Sorcery game.
One of the earliest terrain items I've created, after dungeon walls and some woods and rocks is winter terrain.

A Small experimental diorama made as a gift.
