Ah it's a crooked staff!

 

Anyway I like them all, and the idea of a bunch of rampaging Shrooms is awesome!

 

 

 

It's a pretty strange staff; i.e., it's twisted with a crescent moon symbol adorned wit feathers & topped by a wreath; there are two leafed twigs in the mix as well.  It is all rather woodsy, which fits nicely with the Faerie Folk image.

The Mushrooms are a rowdy looking pair. I gave the open handed one a lantern on a staff (G.W.). He looks like he's lighting the way for the more wizardly looking one, I think there will be a few with spears & such as well.

Anyway, thanks for the reply, X.

Oh no... they're on the move...

 

They are pretty scary even when they are confined to one spot. Having them moving around gets really spooky

Of course, I imagined they could keep up with the Folks they were chatting with somehow...the somehow adds to the creepy feeling.

I added a Wizardly Fly Guy to the mix today:

...seen here with the Flying Sorceress. For those interested in size/scale, the two are tall; i.e.,  just a little over 42 mm from head to toe:

AND the Mushrooms got some attention as well:

...they may be based together as a little vignette...or not...the Mushrooms that is.

Today I also received two full color Mushroom reference books. This could be the start of something BIG.

...I'm sure the various & sundry Little Horrors that spring from my fevered, twisted, thoroughly silly imagination can't be all that bad for you, depending on how long you laugh or how susceptible you are to hiccuping fits. I have, however, been told that my Mushrooms have caused nightmares. I'm sure if the Surgeon General gets wind of the Thingies I'll have to issue a caveat & avoid showing them to minors.

 

All that side, thanks for the kind reply, canuckotter. I am delighted you are enjoying the Stuff. SO I had best not keep you waiting. Here's the Faerie with the Horn:

...that is all the Faerie in the house..thus far. I have a feeling there will be more.

These are such wicked beautiful little creatures.  I love the colors!

 

It's fascinating watching your creative process and how you take inspiration from so many sources.

Thanks for the kind reply, Pingo. I am happy you are enjoying it all...especially the colors.

I do seem to draw inspiration from all sorts of things. In some instances it's seeing things a little differently. I think it is a matter of never actually grown up.

You've had quite a productive week, I see!

The gobbo-faeries look very good together, as well as with their prettier cousins. I'm looking forward to seeing the winged spell-flingers get some color, and the mobile mushrooms are an interesting development.

 

Keep up the good work, sir!

Thanks, Wolf. I am glad you like the stuff. It's been a struggle the past week avoiding napping out, but I did get some stuff done.

I have a few Mushrooms & a Tree Guy to do for a couple of Guys on the D.M. Craft Forum. That should take about a week or so to wrap up...I'll do a thread in the W.I.P. section.

Once those are done I'll split my time between the minis & The Blight. I hopefully will have snapped out of the doldrums by then.

This is the Tree Guy in the works:

I have similar ones moving around the Spooky Woods. This one will be going out unpainted...its a how-to-model.

That aside, thanks for the reply, X. I'm glad you like it. eyelids & mouth will be next. There a a couple of spots where an extra eye or two may appear.
