Michael O. Varhola
H.G. Wells’ Morlocks (Cardstock CharactersTM), $5.99, SKP E 1015, William T. Thrasher and the Skirmisher Game Development Group, 8 pages.  Before there were Orcs there were Morlocks, the original cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers created by science fiction genius H.G. Wells! These grim humanoids first appeared in the post-apocalyptic classic The Time Machine.  This set of miniatures follows the author’s characterization of these creatures as cannibals, slavers, and the custodians of subterranean machinery and includes nine man-sized Morlocks, four juvenile Morlocks, and two large Morlock monstrosities, along with 10 weapon and equipment counters.  These miniatures are designed to be compatible with other 25/30mm figures and can be printed out and assembled, as many times as desired. Two versions of each miniature are provided, one in full color and the other in black-and-white.  H.G. Wells’ Morlocks is part of Skirmisher’s Cardstock CharactersTM line of figures that can be downloaded, printed out, and used in a variety of different sorts of games. Other currently-available sets include ones for use with Mutant Future and other post-apocalyptic and science-fiction games; anthropomorphic ducks and pigs inspired by the Quactica wargaming rules; Forbidden Monsters of Foree: Wan-Ti Snakemen; The Sex Cult of Cthulhu; and the MILFs series of sexed-up monsters that you would just love to be able to roll d20 to hit!  We hope you enjoy both H.G. Wells’ Morlocks and Skirmisher’s other Cardstock CharactersTM! A variant on one of the miniatures that appears in this set is available in the Cardstock CharactersTM Free Sampler (http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=80990).
