Stonehearth Real Life Models (WIP)

Well I couldn’t contain myself any longer…I was talking to @Avairian when the idea hit me to make real life stonehearth models. I have done woodwork crafting and sculpting in the past and I have plenty of craft paint laying around. With this knowledge in mind I immediately started planning it out, in the end I went the easy route and bought 1/2" wooden cubes. I am currently irl modeling @Pandemic’s katana for Nihonjin. So far I only have the handle done, but I couldn’t contain myself any longer :wink:

So here is a low quality picture of my progress so far. (I promise the end version will be shown in a much better quality picture)

I hope you guys are as excited for the finished version as I am :smiley:


Impressive, this will be all wood?

This is something I considered doing back when Cube World was popular. I would recommend 1/3" cubes, they aren’t too much smaller but significantly cheaper.

Someone needs to make a hearthling. Or maybe I’ll do it. :slight_smile:


You mean like this?:


Well, not quite. Those are little moveable action figures that must by 3D printed and require a lot of work to prepare. These are somewhat simpler.

Does anybody have any idea as to how we can attach the hearthling hands to their shoulders?

Clear tubes or rods of some sort?

Oh, clear tubes would work. I was thinking of metal rods but those would stand out too much.

Very carefully placed magnets! :wink:

You can try using fishing line, but would need a base or other supports to tether the pieces in place


Could someone tell me the voxel count of a hearthling?

Okay, after doing a bit of math…

The best (read: smallest) cubes I could find were 3/8" wooden cubes in bulk prices. Without leaving hollow spaces, a hearthling head alone would be $90, not including the price of the rest of the body. Assuming the body and head are hollowed out, the entire thing will still cost around $80-150 just for a wooden model.

tl;dr Wooden models of hearthlings are way too expensive compared to what they’re actually worth.


Sorry for the delay on the finish product, I’ve caught a cold and I’ve been feeling pretty miserable. Hopefully I’ll get it done soon.


i feel strange liking a comment that says your sick…
