GW releases updated book for Orcs and Goblins

Yeah, it's fantasy stuff.  The Aracknarok spider is pretty neat looking.  Sits on a 100x150mm base so I doubt it could be converted to a new Spider Queen.

Instant Mold quick project

So as I said last week I purchased some Instant Mold from Cool Mini or Not.  Here are the results from a quick, and I mean quick grab whatever I had on my desk and try to make a mold in 15 minutes quick.  This stuff really is pretty easy to work with.  I placed the sticks I received in 208 degree water for about 5 minutes, pulled it out with a sculpting tool and flattened it with my fingers.  Then proceeded to push these pieces into the flattened mold.  Waited for the Instant Mold to cool ( couple of minutes),  I then pulled out the object. Using  green Milliput I pressed it into the mold to make the copy.  I used two separate bases to make molds, one was simple and another was complex , to get an idea of what this stuff was capable of.  Also one of a Rohan Royal Guard arm bit like the gun they did in the video.  Overall, this stuff is easy to use and really does recycle.  I tried it and yes it does work when you heat it up again and remold, the arm bit is proof of that.  So two thumbs up from me.
Here is a second batch.

WoTR quick start rules not updated, I am just in need of LoTR love from GW

Edit: not updated, just an old release that I missed at some point.  Sigh, we need some LoTR love GW, I am going through withdrawal.

GW have stripped down the quick start rules, no more spells, maybe something else.  They have included a new QS scenario and army suggestions though.  Interesting.  The two armies are Gondor and Mordor with others in the option list.  Starter box anyone?
