What Prowls the Wilderness II
Posted: 23. 01. 2021.
I'm working on a small range of sculpts inspired by scary European folk costumes, traditionally appearing around Christmas, New Year's, and at winter's end. I presented the first batch last month, and now here are five more monsters of bell, horn, straw and bone.
The Ooser and Straw Children
The Bellmen were inspired by particularly fierce-looking Croatian carnival bell ringer costumes of Grobnik. The horned armless thing is the Dorset Ooser, an English folkloric figure/costume of debatable origins. The two little Straw Children came from straw costumes widespread accross Europe.
If you want a custom miniature or piece of scenery made for you, drop me an email - you can find it in the bottom of the page, together with the Gardens of Hecate Facebook, Instagram and RSS links.
Hello! Are they gonna be on sale? Where can we buy them?
They are properly weird and creepy–great job!
@ El Soldado Tranquilo - As far as I know they will be on Kickstarter this year. That’s all I can say at this point.
@Swaelg - Cheers!
it’s the Perchten!
fantastic stuff, love the wobbly christmas trees
Big fan of these! Looking forward to the Kickstarter. Count me in!
I like the Straw Children especially, adorable and a bit creepy at the same time.
Thank you potsiat!
I can confirm that your sculpts paint up really well. I am REALLY looking forward to getting my hands on these!
This weekend I painted three of your Custodian Wraiths. Very excited to get more of your sculpts, I hope there will be these and others from the previous Wilderness blog post maybe?
@Wonky Dog - Thank you! Glad to hear they paint up well.
@neuzd - Yes, all the wilderness sculpts, plus one that hasn’t been revealed yet.
