Hey folks.

Been forever since I dropped by but since Terrarin decided to pop up in the Wyrd forums I thought I would reciprocate.

This is the table I did for the Wyrd booth back in 2009 for Gencon. I was able to finish it finally at Origins this year. It was also around the Wyrd booth at Gencon this year.

Lots of things learned here. Biggest lesson is to make sure that your armatures for sculpy based trees are really stout. The large tree keeps breaking and I have had to repair it several times now.

Some related links:

That is awesome. I kept meaning to go over the the Wyrd booth for a malifaux demo, and I kept getting distracted by Matt DiPietro or other cool things in the exhibitor hall and not making it that far. I didn't have enough time in the exhibitor hall, that's for sure! It's a shame I missed it. I love the Baba-Yaga hut.

Very nice! Has a very natural feel to the whole piece. Not something easily done.

Why is a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich that much better, whenever its cut diagonally?

Thanks for the kind comments folks.

@ LazyPeon: If you can make it definitely go. It really is the best four days in gaming.

As for the natural look, it's done in lots of layers. I paint before I flock. Then I flock and paint that. Then I flock and paint that layer as well.

Using an airbrush really helps too as all the edges are really soft. The shale parts are drybrushed though. And then airbrushed to soften the edges a a bit as well.

Interestingly, the hut took me almost two months to create. The two trees took almost a month.

I did the board itself with the water effects in three days.

I have only seen this piece in video so far and I have to say it is absolutely magnificent - by far one of the coolest pieces of terrain created (outside of france of course ;-))
