After a lot of consideration - I've decided to give a go at building Minas Tirith using a foam modelling approach. I plan to follow the approach laid out by the crazy man of the famous Zorpazorp. If you are unfamiliar with Zorpazorp you may not follow Middle Earth/Lord of the Rings stuff ... or perhaps you've been hiding under a rock for many years ...
I highly recommend his YouTube channel ... he does a LOT of LOTR stuff and also has a lot of Warhammer 40k content - which, even if you are not into, is actually very entertaining because he builds absolutely massive terrain and hidden within his videos are some excellent terrain tips, tricks, guides, etc.
You can find Zorpazorp on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/c/Zorpazorp
Specially to what I'm doing ... there are three videos that explain it all ...
Basic wall sections and painting guide: https://youtu.be/uuja0FO7erI
And finally the third version of the walls: https://youtu.be/k30HdMAYOTc
I really can't stress enough that even if you are not into LOTR I still highly recommend watching these videos as they really in a very clear way show you how to do foam terrain - from start to finished product --- and it doesn't require advanced skills, this is something anyone can do with just a little effort.
Finally, I have lots going on as usual. I've been thinking of doing a "hobby talk" series of posts that go over a little of my wargaming history, thoughts, inspirations, plans, tips, tricks, favorite products, and more --- if you think you would find this interesting please leave me a comment below (not that anyone really gives a poop about this). I may do this regardless, just to document my thoughts and so I can remember things when I get (even) older ...
For example, some recent inspiration I've had is to look at finishing my Necromunda terrain after seeing to great layouts ...
While GW stuff is expensive, you really can't argue with the results.
