It's been quite a while since I've posted. The obvious answer to this is that I haven't been at my hobby table in quite a while (except for dusting). After my last post where I built a gaming table, "my hobby" shifted from painting to woodworking in a drastic manner. I've worked on a model here and there and I'll hopefully finish it at some point in the future, but currently I'm very much into woodworking and it's filling a void that painting used to. While I could post my current projects here from time to time, this blog has always been about miniatures, and I don't want to stray too far from that. So I'm here to say that I'm on a painting hiatus and I don't know when I'll be back, but the miniatures hobby has always had ebbs and flows for me; I'd wager I'm not "done" with the hobby. And for those curious, I'll post my finished woodworking projects below since it pertains to the subject (and because I'm kinda proud of them).
So the hobby table has been pretty vacant for the last month, but only because I've been creating a gaming table. I've always wanted to make my own, with all of the bells and whistles, but without time, space and knowledge on woodworking and electrical work, I never really got around to it. Until I moved to a new place with the room for such a project. And so, I dove in. More after the jump.
Any DnD druid that lives long enough to see level 8 wants their very own Awakened Tree, my druid being no exception; having already picked out the name Broot for his future buddy. So, in preparation of hitting level 8 soon (I hope), I got this "miniature" off of Mierce Miniatures. I put quotations around that word because this thing is pretty damn big. Like, throw it at somebody and cause a concussion big. And maybe it was the size of this canvas, maybe it was feeling like I had more freedom with all of the randomly placed foliage or maybe it was simply that I wasn't painting those dumb vampires, but this project was a lot of fun. More pics after the jump.
