Hirst Arts Elements Part III

My first Hirst Arts elements post was dominated by doors. This post features pillars.Here we have a corner pillar, a crate with a removable lid, a keg and a pillar section.
Here are two additional pillar sections, a plain pillar and a 3/4 corner pillar.
The top corner pillar has some interesting runes on the edges. There is also an alcove pillar, a pillar with a hooded figure, and a tubular pillar in the bottom corner.
Here are some other interesting elements, including another crate, various sacks of grain, a crystal ball and a lion's face.
Finally, we have a pile of coins, a broken barrel and pail, a pile of bones, and a campfire with flames.

We were just having a conversation tongiht at our game about such things. Rob (Bat in the Attic) made a few items and painted them. Nice work Paladin, errr Aaron.

@Christian: they'll look even better when painted!

@Brian: if you can find someone local that is already using hirst arts, i'd get together with them first to see if you like it. At $35 per mold, you can drop a lot of money on this hobby. As for molds, it depends on what you're after. A buddy of mind likes the fieldstone; I like gothic. Even within the broad categories, each mold has different elements. The first thing is to decide what you want to build, once you have decided that, I can give you some pointers on which molds will give you the most bang for your buck.

@Tim: hirst arts has some really neat elements, i'd love to see some pics of rob's stuff. :D
