For those who might not know, Eric Larson (aka Engineer) has been making awesome trophies for many tournaments this year, and virtually every tournament at GenCon got at least 1. A lot of time and effort went into making these. They are 3-D versions of portions of our maps. They have the terrain squares, as well as some walls, doors and objects.

I took some photos of the ones I won this year. To make them look even cooler, I put some of my minis on top to make killer fight scenes from the movies.

Thanks again Eric, they really are cool!

Thanks for the comments. I have pics of all but the top 8 trophies. Must take the time to put them on my FB page.

I did buy 10 new molds at Gencon. I already have a pile of casts.

Yes, they are very cool. My 4th Place Chicago trophy currently sits on the mantle next to a George Brett commemorative baseball and a taxidermied trout my girlfriend acquired when a local watering hole went out of business.

Awesome job, Eric!

Everyone at the WI Regional loved the trophies and wanted to go home with them -- not just to be able to say they won, but also to be able to have a great memento and showcase for their figs.

Thank you again for providing them.


The others look great also! I'm getting ideas for next year ... :D

After 1500 casts, I've learned a lot about dental plaster. If you want to get into molding, give me a call. I can give you some pointers.

That would be cool, thanks for the offer shoot me a pm with dome info and I may take you up on that sometime when I get some molds. This is something I have been looking into for a while now :)
