Turnip28 and The Kings own 23rd Boggy Marsh Rutabagas – Part 7 

Hello good folks of the blogosphere. I hope you all survived a messy, dirty, alcohol fuelled, maniacal rampage of a New Years and are recovering well. 

My News Years was spent at a mates house who I have been friends with for nearly 31 years! Wow! 

This is my last day of my ten day break from work so I decided to spend a little time in the old hobby cabin. It’s been very, very hot here for the last few days but tonight it’s cooled down significantly allowing me to do a little tinkering. 

A very old statue of Sir Walter Black Radish 

This was an idea I was toying with before I started the Turnip28 project

I decided to build this little plinth for my lead knight statue with a little broken brick wall around it and discarded crate. This piece will act as some scatter terrain for my Turnip28 project but I’ll also be able to use it for the medieval project too.

The only thing left to add, apart from a paint job, is a beak to the helm of the statue. I’ll be sculpting this out of polymer clay. I’ve never done anything like that before so it will be interesting to see how I go. 

I did do a little research on Sir Walter Black Radish and here’s what I found. 

Longeth ago, longeth bef’re the creepeth of the most wondrous root, a young squire bravely and selflessly tooketh upon himself to squasheth the radish which loom’d menacingly in the fields yond’r. With pike in handeth and pocket did fill with salt that gent did charge the unscarr’d root and tooketh it down to the mud in three hefty thrusts. Upon its falleth the young squire hastily did drop the salt into the roots wounds and bef’re his v’ry eyes the demon thing wast vanquish’d. Ho’rah to the squire the people hath called and hence f’rth that gent becameth known as sir walt’r black radish.

  1. Looking good mate, how are you doing the pointed “snout”? straight of curved? if straight why not roll it around a cocktail stick then drill a hole in the face and glue it in place, the fill around the gap, curved roll it out, curve it let it dry, then again drill a short hole in snout and face, add length of stick of rod glue in place and fill the gap.

    Just a suggestion. Cheers Roger.

      1. It is a video game series that has a dark fantasy feel. Its known for being difficult but I think it has some of the coolest designs in any video game going right now. So I’m paying you a high compliment in other words 🙂
