Now moving on to accessories to spice up your setups. First up are some stalagmites made by Galeforce 9. The set was called Caverns of Underdark.

Next we have Wall Antics Giant and Wall Antics Skull. Both sets are from Thomarillion. They are made out of metal. I have to fill in the back with greenstuff and then drill it out for the magnets.

Next up is a piece called an Oriel, also from Thromallian. Makes a nice little piece to make a building look a little different. Used an 1/2 magnet on this one.

I use 1/4 magnets for the small pieces and 1/2 inch for the larger pieces. That seems to work pretty well. I use a drill for the small ones but have to use a dremel for the larger ones, since I don't have a 1/2 drill bit.

Good stuff! I actually own some unpainted versions of the statues... I'll try out the magnet idea!

Next up are the Soulthief and Knight. These are also from Thomarillion. I also installed magnets in the back of them. I think they should work really well with the Castle pieces. I have used them in regular dungeon builds and in tombs. Placing them along the walls or flanking altars or thrones.

I was familiar with the dragon heads and was this piece by Thormillion that I thought of when I saw the DF version of it. I was not aware of the windows though. Very, very cool. 8-)

Next up are Dragon Heads, also from Thomarillion. They come with 4 in a set, so you can paint them with a little variety. I installed rare earth magnets so they would work with the metallic walls.

With a paint job to match, they look like they would match the slate roof sets a little better. Very nice work!
