 Welcome to the third and final stop on our Back Lot Tour! Today we pull off the road at the, Sign of the Prancing Pony.

Our Lord of the Rings crew was hanging out after another successful Adepticon tournament back in 2010. We got on the topic of the next Gathering in the Desert event ran by Tim at Cursedtreasures.blogspot.com . I was again offering my time to build him some new terrain and decided to represent a SBG board with ideas from games like Space Hulk and Legends of the Old West. A good old fashion bar fight was in order
 The entire piece measures around 26in by 26in. The walls are made out of foam board and all of the wood work was hand cut balsa wood. The stone work was a Hirstarts kit, the prison tower, that I ignored the directions on and just built a custom building to fit my needs.
 Without having to scratch build chairs, tables and stools, I ordered a lot of those supplies from dollhouse accessories companies. 90% of their products fit the scale needed and pretty much was the icing on the cake. Don't mess with this bartender.

Beer selections include New Belgium's Fire Tire, Guinness, and Budweiser. Chosen as tournament attendants favorites.
 Materials went so far as cutting the back preview image from a Lord of the Rings calender to make this picture. Remember that stone guard house? The roof lifts off and serves as an electrical storage room. All the wires go under the board and hook up inside the building.

Some extra resin fire moldings finished off the fire place.

 With Tim's help he fleshed out the rest of the table for the 2011 Gathering in the Desert Tournament.


This is going to conclude our Back Lot Tour, so keep checking back for all my NEW terrain and army progress. September first is going to kick off Chicago's Adeptus Windy City Forums, Tale of Four Gamers; where four friends lie, cheat, and steal to get a full 600 point Lord of the Rings army built in monthly increments.
