A very Geeky Valentine

You may have been wondering why I was sculpting 28mm food. It as was for the Geekiest valentines day present that I have ever given. I knew that my girlfriend was really into hobbits, so I made her a diorama of the hobbits having dinner. She really liked her present. Which was good since I wasn't sure if she would like it.

The hobbits are the excellent GW Lord of the Rings hobbits. Their swords have been removed and and replaced with eating implements and food. Te rest of the diorama was built with wood styrene, and a healthy dose of green stuff. I was pleased at how the model turned out. I'm particularly pleased with the source lighting, which is a technique that I don't often use. I need to buy a more saturated yellow to get a better fire effect in the future.

Stay tuned for more Arabs and perhaps a whole new recurring segment.


  1. That turned out really nice. Good sculpts of the food.

  2. Awesome, Joe! You're the king of romance!
