It's about that time...a chill in the air, the smell of woodsmoke, the crops gathered in. And despite hardships it's been a bountiful year. Time to celebrate with full heart and full belly.
This doesn't just happen, of course; it takes work.

And to make use of these ingredients, we have three worthy community members.
Hock Metzger, the butcher (with his loyal pig Not-For-Eatin', here to dispose of scraps and waste) brings great hams, sides of beef and mutton, and cured meats and sausages of all kinds.
Side note: it is very very easy to sculpt a ham, especially if you have a pin or small round-headed nail to serve as a bone. And cylindrical sprue bits make exceptional salamis and deli meats.
Next up: Tub the Baker. Here with an assortment of coarse and fine breads, ciabatta, baguette, cakes, pastries, and pies, along with some confectionry for the children.
He is a skilled enough baker to have created a gingerbread Pastry Golem. It is very helpful in running errands (runs very fast) and about as helpful as you would expect an animated cookie to be for other tasks. (This, and the lollipops, came from a WotC Free RPG Day candy witch cottage set!)
He will find a use for many of those apples from earlier.
And now we are ready, here is chef and saucier extraordinaire, Pudgin, with kettles, cauldrons, basins, and vats.
And LET'S GET TO WORK! (tripod cauldron from Adventurers' Camp set, Nolzur's, big cauldron from Nolzur's Witch's Study, middle cauldron and tantalizing steam again from the candy witch cottage set.)
The Stonehaven Halfling Cook is also here as a vegetable-peeler and extra set of hands for sauteeing and searing.
Let things boil and simmer and mix while it gets dark.
Gotta have lighting though! Chandler (from Midlam) is here to help. Owes Hock for a bunch of tallow, anyway.
Click for setup shots and more of Tub's fine pastries!
Ah, ready at last!
Stay tuned for Part 2: The Boozening.
elder spawn pointed out yesterday that if I finished 1 more mini I would be at 20 for the month.
since my fire giantess wasn't going to count as part of the Bones3 push, I swithched to a dwarf.
this makes the seventh member of the GoldDigger clan. perhaps I need a snow white, ill question the spawn to a suitable figure.
So I'm going to be starting a dwarven reclamation campaign in the fall, and I had 2 copies of the Dwarf butcher. I though it would be perfect to do one as a living butcher (who I can also use as an NPC townie) and his barbarian ancestor spirit that I can put on the table when he's a ragin'.
So far the living butcher is mostly done (need to do his base and some touchups - I don't know how all of you are doing the eyes, because I can't see them even with a visor), and the ghostly ancestor is mostly done minus the ghostly glow I'll be drybrushing later. I do have a few process pics to post.
