With the summer winding down, and autumn arriving, we come to the end of the Hirst Arts casting season in Canada. Good weather is required for plaster casting, as the heat is needed for the plaster to set up. It gets too cold in the autumn and winter to do much casting.
Most of the Hirst Arts molds have been put away, as well as the plaster and the related paraphernalia. A couple of days have already been spent on scenery building. The above columned chamber will serve as a "throne room of the gods" in an on-going campaign.
The second piece of Hirst Arts scenery is a traveller's bridge, useful as a choke point over a raging river. This will be brought to bear once we return to our Lord Of the Rings tabletop battle games.
I've got my eye on a couple of additional Hirst Arts molds, but there's no hurry buying them, since I won't be getting back to casting until next summer. Hopefully the Canadian Dollar continues to ride high, making the molds more economical to purchase.
