I've also been fortunate enough to see an exhibition of the Terracotta Warriors -- mind-boggling!

This is a really interesting idea -- Bob isn't in the office today, but I'll pass this idea on when I next see him.

We're currently discussing whether we should use the originals (once we're arrived at their final forms) to form casts, and to then create two sets of identical trolls and matching dwarfs. At the other end of the scale, each piece could be sculptured individually

A while back I went to see an exhibition of the terracotta warriors. The cast for a warrior was made up of several pieces. I don't remember quite how many, but for sake of argument let's say three: the head, torso, and legs and there were n samples of each, say 5 different heads, etc. By changing the combinations they got quite a variety even with the multitude of warriors that have been found. Add paint and each could be unique on your Thud board.
