I have four different rock moulds from Woodland Scenics that I have moulded ‘rocks’ in already. I used DAS Modelling Material instead of plaster as it isn’t as brittle.

Some of the rocks have been used already but most were stored (read: forgotten) in a box.

The first use was when we did our Chain of Command Western Desert games. Here I used mainly C1231 Surface Rocks and a few pieces from C1232 Boulders. They blend in well in the desert landscape.

The moulds C1230 Outcroppings and C1233 Embankments are bigger and higher and just didn’t lend themselves to the desert. But they do look great as cave walls and that is where they will be used in the future.
I’ve used all sorts of ways to represent dungeon walls in our D&D campaign, everything from sketched walls on paper, to chains to whatnot. Nothing looked even remotely good, but his does in my opinion.
This is a good beginning, now I’m going to mould more of these bigger rocks for even bigger caves. Fun!
Welcome Google+ follower Michel Bernard who seem to have a very widespread interest in miniatures, sort of like me.
