Elf Ranger, companion and asteroids

I bought my daughter this Elven Ranger figure to represent her character when we get around to playing Warhammer fantasy role play. She particularly likes the model due to the accompanying panther. She has named the figure Galadriel and the panther Quirky! My daughter picked out most of the colour schemes though changed her mind on the blue leggings to red after I had painted her up.

After putting in a few games of X wing I've decided to purchase a second box set to get my hands on another 3 ships. This proves much better value than buying the 3 ships individually, especially as I already have 1 each of the xwing and Tie fighter expansion sets. Also to add a little scenery to the game i decided to make up some asteroids. You do get card templates with the game but they lack a bit of realism. So far I have made up 6 asteroids. I got a pack of flight stands from Black Hat miniatures, enough for 20 asteroids. The asteroids themselves are made from some off cuts of high density polystyrene leftover from when I sculpted the Viking raid terrain boards. Taking a Stanley knife to each piece I created a more irregular shape before giving them a coat of burnt umber. Before the umber had dried I gave them each 2 further highlights of varying shades of cream. Think they turned out okay. Now just got to make some more.
