Speaking of orcs

Especially Mordor orcs.

So I got "The One Ring" RPG from Gencon (thanks to my brother who attended).

It sure is purty. I've been trying to sit down and read through it, but haven't much time or mental energy for learning yet another new system that may never get played. It's not that I don't have Middle Earth fans in my group, but gaming time is limited and switching between campaigns (and rules sets) can feel like more trouble than it's worth.

Gen Con by proxy

Mr. Joel, my cohort at Faster Monkey Games, is currently at Gen Con. I decided to take advantage of this and have him pick up several Hirst Arts molds I am lacking. Namely from the Water Cavern series and a Gothic floor tile mold. Now I can buildings/dunegeons in "finished" Gothic style, rustic Fieldstone, or make caves & tunnels. SQUEE!!

I plan to have a major castng frenzy after I get the molds from him. I'm going to try and expand my "Hirst Arena" project I started a while back. You can see most of what I've made so far in Fieldstone:

Check out the customized secret door!

Hirst Huts painted

I finished the two CD based huts I made from Hirst fieldstone blocks. Apologies for the blurry pix:

PS- I should mention I finished 2 more genestealers! YAY!
