Been a busy month, but I've finally gotten round to finishing up vHemlocke. Well, her at any rate. Not the base, which means this week's game will still be Hemlocke free...

Sewing, painting, sculpting and baking ... it's a whole craft fair of skills! Now I'm wondering if anyone out there has knitted a Guild Ball jumper!

Now this is a blast from the past, but after a fair bit of planning and many hours of fiddling, I can now conclusively say someone has done some Guild Ball knitting...

That's a 74" double-knit scarf that any Alchemist's fan could wave at a match :)

And by "someone" you mean you. You've pretty much done it all haven't you @Mako ? :D

You're very talented and I'm very jealous :) Nice work - again... :P

I'm very impressed ... I'm not sure what we could challenge you with next!

Thanks guys :D

It was surprisingly zen to do, once I got the pattern laid out (that was one massive excel sheet by the time I finished).

I won’t add up the hours I spent on it, I got through a lot of tv series while I knitted! And of course haven’t painted my alchemists to use while I wear it...

 But it’s lovely and thick and soft, so even on a cold November day in Manchester I should still be nice and toasty warm :)

Hilariously, I totally forgot to take it to Steamcon - lucky it wasn't that cold really!

I've finally done some more painting. Or basing, at least. Finished up Ox with a simple but (I like to think) effective base. I like to keep gaming bases under control, so they don't get in the way when they're on the table:

Hard to see at the moment, but I've set it up so he's standing on part of a wood and dirt version of the butchers logo. I've got it all rigged up in my 3d printer so every member of the guild will be standing on part of it, and they'll all line up to make the whole logo :)

Thanks man :)

And of course, I did it the traditional way - 1am the night before, cursing myself and the varnish layers for taking too long to dry. (Side note, PlayStation exhaust fans provide just the right amount of heat to dry things quickly without causing tidelines or other problems ;) )
