Starting Hirst Arts



Most of you who read this are already familiar with Hirst Arts. If you are not- they sell molds for plaster-casting construction sets of buildings and terrain for use with miniature gaming.
I've been eye-balling this stuff a good long while not wanting to take the plunge until I felt I had some serious modeling experience under my belt. I put this simple Ruin together with the blocks I got (and cast myself)at the Hirst Art's Seminar I participated in at Adepticon this year. I like the final results as the stuff paints up quite well. It's finally time to pick up some molds so I'm going to borrow a few to get some ideas on what direction of a project I want to build, With long holiday weekend coming up, I should be able to get a few days in to mess around. (I should mention the statue and the tree stumps in the rear are Armorcast products) In an effort to make the blog more informative- once I decide what to build, I will try to document the procedure for a future article.

has anyone else noticed that the hirstarts website has been down for like 8 months or more?

Am wanting to find a supplier of the molds so I can do some terrain stuff. (and am certainly not wanting to pay for the pre-cast hirstarts blocks that some people are selling.
