Hirst Arts.

I've placed an order for three of the Gothic range of molds from this company, as I think they'll suit scenery-building for 18th Century wargames very well. I'm impressed by the thought and skill which has gone into them and I'm looking forward to using them. Looking at the dungeon designs, I wish I'd been able to obtain them back in my D&D playing days.

Hey AJ, I have owned a few Hirst molds for a few years now and have made a few buldings (originally for fantasy gaming, but suited to 18th century Europe, too - you can see my inn on my Soweiter League blog).
The molds are excellent and fun. Mr. Hirst is a pleasure to do business with and the members of his community forum are a helpful, creative and friendly bunch of people.

Thanks Fitz. I was humming-and-hah'ing over buying some molds for a while. I did see the picture of the inn on your Soweiter League blog, and that tipped the scales. ;) Thanks!

Good Morning AJ,

A former D&D'er, huh? I'll bet there are many of us lurking around here at E vs. E.

Best Regards,

Stokes

D&D - Yup, guilty as charged. ;) I still get the occasional game in with one of the old gang who didn't move away from the area.

Bruce Hirst has emailed me to say the molds are on the way. The more I see of his designs the more I look forward to trying them out.
