Rum and Goblins!

Hey folks :) Just watched the freshly released Part I of this very amusing battle report for Stronghold 2nd Edition, where Peter and Will at The Esoteric Order of Gamers battle it out at the castle walls.
I have no idea *wink* who crafted those war-machines they're pushing about, but the game sure looks fun! Great stuff!

Edit: Be sure to check out Part II of the siege too ... it's most amusing :)

While you're at it, take a peek at the huge list of truly amazing downloadable Board Game Player Reference Sheets created by The Esoteric Order of Gamers. If you have any of the games they have created them for ... and you likely do ... you WILL want their handiwork included within those boxes! They are fabulous.

I recently also got to make some new pieces among a batch of hand-crafted comestibles.
This time for Jamaica, a colourful pirate-themed race game set in the Caribbean.
The haul of morsels, including new sculpts depicting tasty sliced legs of ham, and corked jugs of rum, are off to a discerning gamer from Boise, in the US of A.

Meaty, beaty, big and bouncy ;)

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!

Surf and Turf.

Smoked fishy goodness.

...followed up with a nice fresh fruity desert.

Happy Gaming!

Return to the Cursed Island!

A new set of my sculpted board game components, for Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island,  has arrived at its destination in the UK, and are now safely in the hands of their owner.

I got make a few variants on some of the pieces I had previously created for myself and others in this lot. New look Weapon, Roof and Palisade markers, as well as a double-sided Morale totem ... one side - with a smile - for when morale is high, and another - with a scowl - for when morale is down.

Individually personalised Cross markers displaying stones engraved with epitaphs included, and Traps for the King Kong scenario ... with bananas for bait!
A Military Might marker for 7 Wonders: Duel was also requested.

A glimpse of the motherload.

A most enjoyable (and pretty lengthy) commission.

One note I would like to make for those who may be interested in placing commissions. Please be aware of tariffs/import taxes you possibly may have to pay to have your parcel released to you by your postal service. Many countries don't charge a fee, but some do, as the UK resident who placed this commission discovered!

I do make note of this within my price-list/ordering info pdfs, and also on the invoices I send out.

I don't like the ecstasy people should be feeling when receiving my pieces to be marred by an unexpected fee. So please, hit up your local postal service if unsure, before placing a order! :)

Determination tokens,
plus a few alternate ones for special situations. 

The "two-faced" Morale marker.

New Palisade, Roof and Weapon markers.

...and their backs.


A nice, warm, home away from home.

Wasteland markers.

Have a heart, or four.

Food glorious food.

Furs from the local wildlife.

It's a TRAP!

El fuego.

A tiny desert island... as the Round marker.

The 7 Wonders: Duel, Miliatary Might marker.

The grand collection!
