Acorn

18 months after Father Oak first appeared in Pulp City the Heartwood tree called to him once more. Following the voice again the great tree yielded up to him a small child. This was Acorn the daughter of Father Oak and the tree, or so he claims.

This has been the longest time I have taken on my a single mini in my self-imposed challenge from start to finish (thus far). I started Acorn at the same time as I started Father Oak. But whereas I really got into painting Father Oak, every time I picked up Acorn, I would tickle the mini with a dab of paint using the hairy stick, but just couldn't get around to doing a great deal. I don't think it is a bad model, it just hasn't engaged me and I found it awkward to paint in places.

The colour scheme was intended to complement that used with Father Oak (particularly the wood parts, the greenery, the green medallions, the tunics). I will try to photograph both together soon.

In game terms Father Oak and Acorn are very much intended to work together; Acorn can be fragile but can offer some destructive capability in her own way.

The mini was sculpted by Sergio Alonso Leon, who also crafted Father Oak.
