I have to agree...of all the great things in this paint job, (and there are quite a few), the first thing my eye was drawn to was the pie and the layer of flour on top of it. It literally looks like you baked a tiny pie and put it in his hand...flawless.


The layering on the clothes and skin are wonderful, and I'm liking the value transitions in the beard. The fact that his hat and apron appear to be from a matching set is also inspired. An all-around masterpiece.

Thanks, all!

@Rigel: Yep ... them teeth!  <gnaw gnaw gnaw>

@Grand Slam: I worked the paint on that pie back and forth a few times, because a real pie would have its darker color on the raised areas where the oven browned the pastry, but that's at odds with how we usually apply highlights to minis.

@72moonglum: Right, he's just a baker in the town, rather than an adventurer ... or is he?! Now I'm imagining him in a dragon's lair.  In the next moment he will toss the pie a few inches up, quickly two-hand his rolling pin like a baseball bat, and hit a line-drive of magical deadly pastry at his foe.

Adapting Tolkien's lines for Bard the bowman:

"Pie!" said the baker. "Blackberry pie. I have saved you to the last. You have never failed me and always I have baked you anew. I had your recipe from my father and he from of old. If ever you came from the ovens of the true king under the Mountain, go now and speed well!" :;):
