The Fountain of Yoot!

There are stories told of a Saytr named Yoot whose desire to guzzle wine oft led to his having to relieve himself in the most offensive places. However one noble found this quite amusing, as he was never the receiver of the Satyr's attention.

Thus he decided to thank the gods that be by creating a monument to the exploits of Yoot.


"Yoot" was another of my garage sale finds. The look on his face immediately set in my mind that I would use him in a fountain. The next step of putting thoughts to deed is what took some time.

Finally I opted to use another of my CD coasters to form the base. Some white foam & my foam cutter provided a quick wall in which to encase the water effects. 


Then after getting the fountain painted, the multiple thin layers of Water were added, & allowed their 24 hours drying time. Some Secret Weapon Baby Poop paint squirted & spread through a couple of the layers allowed the murky effect.


Last was a piece of sprue, trimmed & drilled with a pin vice to insert a piece of wire which forms the spray. Then some of the thick water effects was applied & a bit of a spume/circle added to the water within.

One last image showing the fountain with a couple Frostgrave adventurers. 


 Now its time to get back to painting some more of the miniatures I have festooning my paint table.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. What a hoot Yoot is! Fabulous bit of scratch building, guaranteed to bring a smile to even the most hardened of adventurers.

    1. Thanks Michael, I looked ahead & it appears we are still 3 scenarios out from using it in the campaign, though it will likely debut at my running of Frostgrave at Fallcon.
