This post, although a bit late, marks yet another momentous occasion!  This blog has, as of now, received over ten thousand views!  For those of you who don’t know, that’s how many uruk-hai attacked the Hornburg in The Two Towers.  The title of this post means “Three hundred against ten thousand” and I thought it fitting for a milestone such as this.  Indeed, I remember when the blog had only received neled herain views, and now that it’s reached a number as great as caer menig, I have decided to publish a new guide on Snapguide.  This guide should prove useful if you are unsure about how to base your miniatures.

I just made a new guide on Snapguide.  This one concerns detailing a miniature’s base and has taken me a while to make.  Now that it’s published I hope that it will be of some help to those who have had difficulty with basing their miniatures.
