Modeling HS1 The Slaying Stone

So now that I’ve had my Hirst Arts molds for a while and have had a chance to do some casts, I’ve been thinking about the next obvious question:  what should I build with them?

After a bit of thought, I think I have the answer:  The maps from module HS1: The Slaying Stone.

In order to figure out how many bricks I’ll need and how to arrange them, I’ve begun analyzing the maps.  Here’s one from Encounter 4:

First I’ll break out the rooms, indicating what sorts of floors I’ll need:

Encounter 4 Rooms

That gives me:

Two 4×4

Four 2×4

One 2×5 (possible as one 2×2, one 2×3)

Then it’s on to the walls:

Which gives me:

Thirteen 4s

Four 2s

Two 3s

Seven 1s

And other miscellaneous things:

Two stairs, 2×4

One secret door, 1

One door, 1

One door, 2

One trap door, 1×1

Two sacks, 1×1

One pillar, 2×2

Secret tunnel floor: 5, 2, 1

That sounds like a lot of assembly work, and maybe it is.  I won’t know for sure until I build it.

    I’d love to see the finished product. I myself built an inn with Hirst Arts last summer. It was pretty fantastic.
