Serpent is now available from The Riverside Woodshop!!

This model is created by the Amazing Patreon: Great Grimoire! We at The Riverside Woodshop are a proud Merchant for their art work. We print and/or paint all models in-house. We currently print the Serpent in 32mm and 75mm Scale and it comes ready for you to paint. You can see in our pictures, we provide screenshots of this model next to a scaled ruler to help you get a feel for the actual model size vs scale. You will also notice this model comes in 2 pieces - Serpent and The Base. We print them separated to ensure the least chance of damage when shipping and also to help make it easier for you when painting!! If you need another size just ask and we can try our best to accommodate you :)

We print our miniatures using a high end resin printer with extreme detail! We use only premium hard and tough Epax resins mixed with Siraya for these to make sure they are as durable as possible. Like all miniatures though you will need to use caution if you will be handling them repeatedly! As with all 3D printing it our models are printed with an extreme number of supports to ensure the best printing. We make every effort to remove all support material and clean up the surface area before shipping but it is always best to go over your miniature once again when you receive it before you prime it :)

Just a little backstory from The Great Grimoire: Serpent

“Do you know why they tell the villagers not to come near the swamp? The ground is treacherous there, for sure, but it’s not the main danger. Let me tell you a story of a girl who once lived in this village. What a pretty girl she was! Slender as a withy and graceful as a swan, with a voice as sweet as honey and hair as golden as the bright morning sun. Every man, every lad, every boy was charmed by her heavenly beauty. They gave her flowers, jewelry and begged for her hand in marriage. However, not every villager was pleased by this turn of events.

Women became extremely jealous of her goodliness and stood against their husbands, sons and brothers being bewitched by this unnatural force of attraction. They held a private meeting and decided to get rid of her once and for all, to exile her out of her home to the wild swamplands where she would certainly perish. If not the bottomless marsh, then the poisonous snakes would surely end her.

Jealousy, vengeance and violence filled their hearts as they stormed her house, torches alight, chanting “Witch! Witch! Witch!”. The poor girl begged for mercy, insisting on her innocence. But the crowd was relentless. With her house now on fire, she had nothing left to do but to flee towards the deadly swamps. “You will regret it, I promise you! I will enchant every one of your men until all of them are dead, and you are left alone to rot away”. No one saw this girl ever again, but the merchants travelling through the swamps started whispering that an eerie female laughter could be heard there at night.

Some of them would even say that they saw a large snake dragging workers, farmers and even soldiers away, drowning them in the abysmal bog. The others mentioned that the body of the most splendid girl could sometimes be seen in the waters, singing a beautiful song, calling for their help. Is any of it true? I don’t really know. Was she actually a witch from the very beginning or did she become one when the crowd turned against her? No one can tell for sure.

One thing is certain – each year almost a hundred men go into the swamps and never come back, leaving their wives penniless widows”.
