Hirst Arts – Cast your own blocks – Build your own castles

Steve writes –

Since you pointed folks at Games Workshop’s hobby articles, I thought you’d appreciate the work of Bruce Hirst. He sells molds for folks to cast their own bricks and other bits to make models. What makes him so impressive as a maker is how he encourages people to make their own molds (for personal use) based on his product. His site includes extensive discussions about moldmaking, different casting materials, and even a clear and friendly translation of his legal policy. He hosts his own discussion forum for customers to present their work, and the work in the design derby is worth a look on its own.

    A lot of the scenery of this webcomic was made using Hirst Arts blocks.

    Especially the early adventures.

    I found that site about a year ago and there are so many great models on the site. I would like to get some of their sets but not sure where to begin, and since they are a bit pricey compared to other options I would need to know that.
