You don't need to drink it, just rip them open and pour out the contents and glue it down.

May the wind under your wings bear you to where the sun sails and the moon walks!

I use coffee grounds as part of my ground material. Its just my personal rule that i do have to use them first. That way i get lots of terrain material plus a really good work ethic.

The key to building terrain is a good eye for similarities. I looked at a sponge, and realized that it was the same texture as a rock. I looked at popsicle sticks and realized they looked like miniature planks. I've never spent more than $20 on a piece, it all comes down to how well you can see household items.


Take this piece, one of my favorites. Pure styrofoam insulation ($8 for a pack of 4 boards 8'x2') and popsicle sticks. Some imaginitave building, some tacky glue, and some painting techniques, and you have a 2'x2' board to work with.

Good luck with your building!

very nice
it is a pity that our friends lie in between, if no land divided Isengard and Mordor then they could fight while we watched and waited.
