Upgrading the components, wrangling things to make for a faster set-up, adding a bit of extra sparkle and such.
First up is...
Mice and Mystics
A fabulous fantasy adventure game with a superb background story from Plaid Hat Games. It comes with beautiful (unpainted) figurines and many cardboard tokens with very good artwork .. but sometimes you want something a little more.
So I've been converting various tokens to 3 dimensional pieces (made using polymer clays) and painting up the figurines. It's all still a work in progress, but here is some of what has been done so far...
Traditional Camembert, Blue Brie, Brie rolled in Vine Ash and Swiss.
So much more satisfying to grab a nice weighty wedge.
Nom nom nom.
Good morning, Sir. Welcome to the National Cheese Emporium!
I was asked on BoardGameGeek how I had constructed the cheese wedges ... so I whipped this up.
Grapes, Mousetraps, Hook and Thread ...and Brodie's Paw.
The tokens look nice, but... hmmm.
In the Dining Room.
Scratch-built Cheddar Golem ... Stands just over 30mm.
The deadly cave centipede.
Mouse Hero 'Filch', the Scamp.
Rats, Rats and more Rats.
More Mice Heroes; Colin, Nez, Lily, Tilda and Maginos ...primed and ready for painting.
Must get back and finish painting these figures. ~ Distracted by the 'Crusoe ;p
Here are a few pieces I've done for an M&M connoisseur over in Canada...
The 'Essentials' set.
Hook and Thread ...on pine.
Snappy new traps.
Tasty blue ...and his friends.
A new H&T for my set too ;)
Tile vs Sculpt.
And a few more pieces to add to the collection...
Another assortment of cheeses.
Plump ripe grapes.
To the kitchen!
Some pieces heading off to Colorado, USA...

A handful of gaming goodies.
The Cheddar Golem!

Speaking of cheese.
