Winter came in with a vengeance this week. We went from 65 degrees F to 13 inches of snow in 12 hours. Then just 4 days later another big storm hit the east coast, but only dropped 3 more inches of snow on our region.
Our planned trip to visit my daughter and son-in-law in Alabama was postponed. So I took the time to build a small vignette based a situation from a role playing game of Dungeons and Dragons. I had never played D&D before despite my background as a war gamer. But a friend invited me to his new campaign and I accepted.
It was a lot of fun. I have played a lot of the computer game Diablo. But D&D is a role playing game where most of the action takes place in your imagination. So I thought it would be fun to bring to 3D a scene from the game. This was the first battle my character encountered. Our party of 5 were attacked by orcs that had just ransacked a farm. Only two of them reached my location where my character had to defeat them in close combat. The other orcs were felled by my team mates' arrows and magic spells.
|The last orc berserker halts to roar. The Paladin dispatched the first orc with one stroke of his sword..|
All these figures are 3D prints that I made from files I purchased on line. The overall vignette is about 6 by 7 inches. It was a fun little project that allowed me to practice my figure painting with acrylics and water based oils.
