Description:


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.


Inspired by the works of classic swords-and-sorcery authors like Fritz Lieber, Jack Vance, and Robert E. Howard, Swords of Kos: Hekaton is the second entry in Skirmisher Publishing LLC’s fantasy fiction series and follows Swords of Kos: Necropolis. In this anthology, the island and city of Kos and the lands around it are explored through the stories of eleven authors and original illustrations and cartography by nine artists. All are set during the Hekaton, centennial observance of the great volcanic cataclysm that reawakened magic, the elder races, and all manner of fell monsters, in a fantasy world that draws upon the myths, legends, and history of the Mediterranean, Europe, and the Middle East.

Stories in this compilation include “Bloodsuckers” by Michael O. Varhola, “Rogue’s Nightmare” by R.M. Aislin, “Chasing Shadows” by Richard T. Balsley, “The Misadventures of Bjoric” by Brendan Cass, “The Rite” by Christopher Van Deelen, “To the Dragon Apeiron” by Lissanne Lake, “Unfamiliar Ground” by Sharon Daugherty, “The Day Pateon Fnordseeker Gave Up Drinking” by Eric Lis, M.D., “Nithernons the Ale’er” by John Giddens, and “The Price of Land” by D.M. Fitzgerald. Join us in our adventures through the dark and fascinating swords-and-sorcery world of Kos!

I've always had a fascination for the work of H.G. Wells, so I was interested in seeing how Skirmisher Publishing portrayed the Morlocks in paper miniature format from his 1895 novel, The Time Machine. These paper miniatures are provided without expla [...]

I quite liked the art on this set so I decided to order. (You can see it for yourself in the preview). The price is fair and comparable to industry standard. Even if you don't use them as Morlocks per se, they would also make a passable substitute for [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
