Hirst Arts: Pairs of Stairs

I have a small box of Hirst Arts stair elements, so I decided to build a couple of 10' sections of dungeon stairs. 

The front-most staircase is made from Hirst Arts chipped stone stair elements, while the staircase in the rear is built from the smooth, marble elements.  The stairs descend at a 45 degree angle. 

You'd need to put three of these staircases together to repesent your typical 30' staircase, found in many dungeon designs.  Suddenly a 30' staircase seems awfully imposing!

I find these interesting but your pictures are far too small. Why are you uploading such tiny resolution images? If I was you I would go back and replace the pics youve shown so far.

What are you looking for, in terms of information from the photos? Would it be more valuable to publish a how-to series, rather than the finished product?

Love the stairs. I can imagine goblins - sans heads - rolling down them as a burly warrior stands at the top, hacking the greenskins down like wheat.

I assume you took the photos and you are uploading 25Kb pics which is unusual these days. Why not upload 500Kb images so we can see the detail. If possible stick a miniature in to see the scale too.

A how-to would be great but at this point I just want to see what you've made. I tend to improvise terrain with stones, twigs and so on at the moment.
