Here some images from the watchtower I build for our gaming clubs Border Town Burning campaign.





It is build from Hirst Arts 'nerd bricks'. The watchtower consists of three separte parts, to accommodate entering and moving inside the tower (at ground level) and transport (see below).



More pictures can be found here

EDIT: I fixed the image links for you. They need to link directly to a *.jpg or similar image file.

Thanks!

You can find some pictures of our scenery at our blog: http://somegamers.blogspot.com/search/label/scenery .
About half a year ago we purchased some Hirst molds and since then there are several projects going on.

Wow! Very cool! I've been looking at the Hirst Arts stuff for a while but was worried it wouldn't live up to what they advertise. This stuff looks excellent though.

How hard were the molds to work with? Would you recommend picking them up?

I would definitely recommend the Hirst molds. We (Gaming club friends and me) ordered some together (and later some more) a little while ago. Before hand I was a bit skeptic about how this would work out, but the molds and bricks really are top quality and it's rather easy (and good fun) to build with them.

What really surprised me was the relative ease of getting good paint results. The brick have a very nice texture and they become very good looking just by dry-brushing. The basic way I use to paint the building is by spraying with black undercoat, and then two or three layers of dry brushing.
After that I give some extra attention and details to 'special area's, but about 90% of the building is finished after the dry-brushing.

My advice for starting with this would be to buy one or two molds with some good basic blocks in them. For example, for the watch tower I mainly used brick of molds #50 and #61. I borrowed some bricks from other molds like the stairs (#60) and some floor pieces and decorations (#281, #282). (Another tip: The tiles in #281 make great bases for miniatures).

Hope this advices is useful (I really really really don't own any Hirst stocks :-)

Regards and thanks for your compliments!

Very nice!

My wife has an extensive collection of Hirst molds. They are top quality (he has cast some of the older ones scores of times) and produce very nice results.
