    Wip February 2012 Entry: Workarikhash

    Workikhash is a fantasy version of shogi (japanese chess). Roughly translated from our orcish language Workarikhash means Warteacher... Rules are the same as shogi the rest is different ^^

    The symbols on the gamestones are based upon our orcish languages (Djschhabuk Maah).

    The stone design was done quick with Autocad. It resembels a claw.
    Everything will be done physically. I'm going to laser these stones out of black plexiglas and do the fine work with a dremel ( is a multifunction rotary tool also called dremel in english? )... have to buy a mask for that first -_- forgot it today at the hardware store

    The "gameboard" will be made out of white rough velour leather

    I agree with dangerdog15. Quite an undertaking can't wait to see the end results. Laser etching ?? HMMM Can you buy one at Walmart ??

    What a really cool concept! We call them Dremel's here too (name of the brand). I have one but I've never used it!!!

    We've got a laser cutter at our University of applied sciences (studying architecture). usually we're using it for creating models... but we can use it for other things too if we want ^^

    It's hard to compete against someone with a laser cutter...

    Nice work, though!
