I'm a bit behind on my show-offs. Here's one from July.
From Reapercon 2020..... I wanted to give this fairy tale classic a modern twist, thus the tie-dyed shawl and the green apple. Granny might also have some other "organic" produce and specialty home made items behind the counter.
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.

Ah, ready at last!
Stay tuned for Part 2: The Boozening.
Hello! I recently had my first in-person game in a year and a half, and started getting the yen to paint my vast hoard of unpainted Bones. Having painted a few, I thought of the Forums, and thought - well, I should post them here! I always love to search for other people's paint jobs, perhaps they may want to look at mine.
I did, incidentally, participate in Bones V, but I messed up my pledge (I thought I closed it in like October, but apparently didn't,) but it's not like I didn't have enough from II and III. Anyway, this is a sculpt I marked down as "I really want to paint this," -- Olivia. For some reason the look on her face just appealed to me. I generally start off with Brown Liner on my Bones, and in this case that was probably a mistake - since I wanted her to be dressed in a de-saturated yellow robe I never quite got rid of the brown. Ah well. I also tried to make the vial she was holding half-full and look like glass... I think I succeeded but I'd love to know your thoughts.
