Tall pillars adorn every significant hall of the dwarves. Carved out of the rock, with hammer and chisel as well as unbridled strength and dwarven endurance and a certain degree of stubbornness. Or should we call it single-mindedness rather. Anyway, tradition and a dwarven hall call for pillars and stonemasons.
The columns are magnificent and can be painted quickly and easily with a little dry-brushing.
