Like with any raw material you work with, there’s always some little bits and pieces that come off. So, for those who like natural random surfaces for your bases, here are some half-ounce bags of black walnut bits. Imagine some icy spikes sticking up from a tundra or some shale rocks for your hero to stand on triumphantly. These are unfinished bits so some splinters and splits might be sticking out.
This long piece of black walnut was found on a beach on Seneca Lake and had been quite bleached by the sun and water. It was finished with teak oil and the resulting piece is quite striking. At 9.25 inches long you can easily add a larger forest dragon or a group of companions marching along the ridge. The piece is 2.375 inches wide and 1.25 inches tall. (235mm x 60mm x 32mm)
This piece looks like a rock ridge straight out of Fellowship of the Ring. Imagine your halflings in a line along the top. It’s 6.875 inches long, 2.25 inches wide and 1.5 inches tall (175mm x 54mm x 38mm).
This megalodon tooth like piece is perfect for your sharks or smaller monsters of the deep. It’s 2.75 inches long by 1.875 inches wide and nearly an inch tall (70mm x 48mm x 22mm).
The piece has a neat spur out to 3.75 inches with off the base 2.5 inches and 1.75 inches by 3/4 inch thick (102mm x 50mm x 20mm). The spur would be great for large predator cats or similar animals.
Not long ago, a farmer was working his land and he came upon an ancient black walnut. When he came closer he realized it wasn’t just a black walnut tree but a deceased treant of the Black Walnut Clan. To honor the fallen elder ent, he brought him to a his shop. From the remains he made a grand table for his home. And to ensure that all of the fallen treant was honored the farmer brought the remainder to a wood worker.
So shown here is the mitt of the treant. It is 9.75 inches from wrist to fore-finger and 6 inches wide. Its meaty palm is 2.5 inches thick. (248mm x 152mm x 64mm)
The flat side sits stably on a surface and allows the thick exterior bark lined with lichen in places as a suitable location for your diorama with a monstrous behemoth or grand dragon. Add some grasses and even a branch to create a tree or two for a really awesome piece.
