the BBC suggests 6 uses for Pringles packets :

Somehow they missed out "make terrain for WH40K"

I was going to cut them down into African huts. Silly BBC guy.

All well and good gentlemen, but what are you going to do with all those Pringles--eat them??

Wackmole, I've thought of tubular dice towers--though not at the price of having to eat Pringles--but I keep thinking of elliptical baffles. Is there an easy solution I'm missing?

Just make a spiral master for the holes. Drill throught both sides of the tube. Then stick glued toothpick in the holes. After it drys cut the tooth picks flush to the tube. Cut a hole at the bottom and you have a dice tower.

African Huts are best made from old tape rolls.

@Giles nice models.

14+ years for the ruined castle that's a good pace. I'd hate to put a date to my oldest unfinished project.

I use the metal base discs for bases to trees, asteroids, air bursts, etc. Different sizes from different products not just Pringles.

Its not a hectic pace to say the least. ;-)

that said, I have finally got some dolls' house flooring I like to start the process off, of finishing this piece as I really would like to sue it for Frostgrave.

I probably have older projects, but have been slowly finishing stuff off ahead of my house move and winnowing them with the will I / won't I rule. :-|
