This post has attached to it a high-resolution PDF containing a printable miniature of Ordin, an Orc Wizard/Bartender (along with his familiar Sleipder, a tiny blue fiendish spider)! 
 
This miniature is bonus content for “Into the Mines of Moira,” an adventure by Skirmisher Publishing for the 5th Edition role-playing game system that can be found on the DriveThruRPG at RPGNow online game stores. 
 
"Into the Mines of Moira" can be used with Skirmisher's Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting or easily dropped into traditional fantasy campaign setting. 

Probably the nicest tabletop gaming model I have collaborated on was this castle that my father, brother, and I made in our storage room in Munich, West Germany, back in the early '80s! It was in storage for about two decades but is now at Skirmisher Publishing LLC and I will presently be using it in a game for the first time in about 30 years. 

During my recent trip to Washington, D.C., the end destination for the Skirmisher Publishing roadtrip from Chicago, I stayed at my parents' house for a few days and checked out some of the miniatures that we used to use in our very earliest Dungeons & Dragons games, starting in 1982. Some of the are still displayed in a shadowbox that we picked up for these purposes during that era and it appears in two parts below.

Wreck someone before someone checks you.

After getting my battle force together I realized there was one thing I needed. That thing was wreck markers, tokens used to represent destroyed warjacks, the steam & magic powered robots that dominate the game. As a modeler and collector of sundry machine parts, I new I had a project on my hand.

Little Orc Wars is a war game created by Skirmisher Publishing that calls for the use of live siege weapon fire and has the flexibility to accommodate any miniatures at hand – even homemade ones. A co-worker (Sam) and I decided to test that aspect of the game by building our own miniatures using only the materials available in our office. Thus “Little Corporate Orc Wars” is born, a game for long days at the office that need a little bit of fun (but be ready to explain to coworkers what the hell you’re doing)!

Following is the Pass in Review section from d-Infinity Vol. #4: Dark Future! It includes models and miniatures from ArmorcastFantasceneDungeonstoneDwarven ForgeMiniature Building AuthoritySavage Mojo, and more. 

 

Dungeonstone is the ultimate 3-D dungeon setup.   It is affordable, strong, detailed, and consistently well made.  To be fair, my latest purchases were 98% perfect.  In one of the two sets, ONE piece seems a bit malformed, causing it to not fit perfectly as all the other pieces do.  A defect I can CERTAINLY live with.  

A source for gaming models and accessories that gamers should be aware of is craft stores in general-and craft stores during post-holiday sales in particular. In the days following Christmas, such stores are eager to dump seasonal stock to make room on their shelves for incoming product, and gamers can benefit as a result.

One of the tasks that I engaged upon at Space City Con 2012, in Houston, Texas, was to reach out to other vendors, craftsmen, and artists. In doing so, I was happy to meet Blackwolf and Skully of Wulfenskul Designs from Katy, Texas. Wulfenskul had the most amazing-looking wooden miniature scale catapults I had seen to date. Through some collaboration, I negotiated with Wulfenskul to playtest their catapults with Skirmisher Publishing LLC’s Little Orc Wars demo game.
