Mold Making and Casting

I have decided I'm going to try my hand (when I get home) at making some clear resin casts of various walls (ice, fire, force) and clouds (stinking, smoke, vapor).

Here's some of the preliminary research:

Fifth Edition?

New York Times Article about a new edition of D&D with "gamer input".

I'll believe it when I see it.

Hasbro killed this hobby.

The D&D Room

My D&D room will never be as splendid as this one, but I can dream (and be envious)!

Jeff's Game Blog

Jeff's Game Blog is pretty awesome. You should check it out if you haven't already.

I'm still in Minot, ND for a family medical emergency, so it will be another couple of weeks before I can get to that New Year's resolution. Meantime, during the long periods of waiting that come with this particular situation, I'm passing time by using my Google Fu on all things mini related. It keeps my mind off the worrying.

DnD Lead

DnD Lead is a web archive of a wide range of out of print miniatures, as well as some current lines. It is not intended to be as comprehensive as The Stuff of Legends but is very nicely laid out and has a ton of really high quality photos of many miniature lines from yesteryear.

They also have a pretty nice section on the history of fantasy miniatures. It is told in a "colorful" character voice, but there is a side bar with a more straightforward historical thumbnail and then each individual page for different mini companies has some historical background too.

For those who like archival material, they also have a section of links to PDFs of catalogs from several miniature companies.

Check them out, and tell them Shandar sent ye!
