They look good, better even than ones made from "lava rock". I expect that a similar technique might be used to make rocks and rockfaces for the (planet-bound) wargames table.

Another method that I have seen is to crumple up aluminum foil, spray paint it black, dry brush gray, add flight stand, done.

I used to make sponge-chunk asteroids, but the scissors work can really be hard on the hands, and dry-time is rather long.

I prefer the foil method above, but using crumpled paper inside and a thin coat of PVA glue over the surface before spraying and dry-brushing.

Nice looking work though! I refuse to play x-wing with the lame 2-D asteroid counters!
