Looks like both Dale and I were busy this weekend. I'm posting too.
First I wanted to show a hallway tile for a cavern instead of a dungeon. I wanted the "spaces" to be somewhat irregular, but still be "fair" in terms of it being easy to see what spaces are diagonal to and lateral to another space (this is important in some games). Also I wanted to use a color other than gray so I went with brown. Nothing earth shattering here, I just wanted to show you all the tile. I did paint a rat's skull on this one to though.
And I don't mean just any Troll, I mean a classic, 1st Edition AD&D Monster Manual Troll.
I have always been a sucker for these rubbery, bug-eyed, no pupil eyes, regenerating terrors with the "blown back" look hair. The more I look at this guy, the more I find him oddly terrifying ...
Construction is a tall shaker peg (I can't remember how long, I think something like 1 and 1/4" long maybe?) with a split egg for a head, a tapered rounded plug for hair, and two disk-like beads for his bulging eyes. The arms are actually large tile spacers that I cut to shape. The nose, too, is an "arm" of a tile spacer glued to the split egg.
And now, for you old timers, a scene out of D1 or D2, or maybe even certain parts of Q1. If you don't know what I'm talking about, that's okay, just enjoy the picture.
