These two have a bit of a story ... they began as one type of structure, but due to the changeable nature of board game rule design, they ended up as something else ... having to both undergo slight sculptural changes.
The first one here was originally created to be a Workshop...
...and this was to be a Wainwright...
The Workshop though, after a bit of a nip-tuck, became the bustling new Bakerythat is found in the game...
...and the Wainwright, transformed into the Barracks we see here, also found in the game...
I must say, it was a bit scary taking to a finished piece (as they are baked solid) with a scalpel, and then re-sculpting various parts and adding additional detailing ... but it was quite an enjoyable challenge on the whole - and one I was pretty sure I was up for.
The final results I am very happy with.
These two were the only sculpts that actually were required to become different types of buildings during the creation of the rule-set ... but they were not the only ones I (due to my own personal preference) performed nerve wracking adjustments upon during creation, ha ha :D
I can now reveal some of the figurines I created for Tapestry - from Stonemaier Games - found within the box, and a few more game components too...
The various buildings - cast in durable plastic and carefully hand painted.
All at home in their handy insert.
Each player has their own board where their Capital City takes shape.
The various miniatures - shown on the back of the box.
The board from whence the structures can be claimed.
I'll be posting photos of my original sculpts over the next several days ... so feel free to check back here if you'd like to see what was sent to Panda to undergo the casting process.
In fact, here's a peek at one now - the original Apothecary sculpt... :)
Note: the colouring on the casts in the game are not exactly as per the original sculpts - they are very close - but slight adjustments had to be made in production for various reasons. The actual colours themselves are a match - but the colours of certain areas may vary ... for example, the items on the small Apothecary bench (in the casts) are brown, not grey as shown here in the sculpt.
