Otherworld Artifacts - 1986 Catalogue


Wonderful old resin company back in the day.....also cast in dental plaster (thanks Chirine) so not sure at the moment if just smaller pieces were resin or if they moved into resin later etc. Info appreciated!




























Took a while to scan and upload so hope you enjoy it!

3 pics taken off ebay from a while back not sure who's so unable to ask permission - apologies in advance but hope it's ok!

Cavern Expansion Set (cast in dental plaster)

Nifty-looking scenery. Do you have any of these, David? Love to see some pics of the actual items if possible.

How wonderful! Thank you for posting this! I got a batch of these sets back in '84, when they were being done in plaster - dental stone, I think - and being sold in white foam take-away boxes. I can shoot photos, if you like; in the meantime, may I download your images to figure out which specific items I have? Thanks!

No probs. at all downloading the pics, just post a link or whatever if you use them! Would love to see some pics of the actual. I've added some I found on ebay a while back.

I managed to pick up some Hlaka by the way.

I wish I knew where the moulds were... My cheque book would be out!

Wow! This is a blast from the past. I knew Chris Bulis as I used to frequent his shop when I was 10. I remember when he first launched his range and we used them in our Tunnels and Trolls games he ran above the shop.

If you have any good memories please post them, that's what I'm trying to get hold of...besides the pieces themselves!!!

Oh my goodness! I splashed out with my very first paycheck on the fortified manor house. Sadly fifteen years of happy gaming took its toll in the end and the model is no longer with me. So much fun to build though. Thank you so much for posting this!

Glad to bring back the memories Matthew. I had the Wizards Towers set but sold it on to a young lad who used to frequent the Manchester Games Workshop where I worked in the early 80s.

I have a fortified manor house from Otherworld. I am the 3rd owner of the piece, having bought it @2002 from my friend when he needed to clear space and some money. If you are interested in pictures, I can do so.

Would love some pics Rick - if you could send them via the deartonyblair@virginmedia.com email I'll add them to this post.
