As you walk through the woods perhaps being less careful than you should, you graze your face on a sharp twig sticking out from a low branch.  You flinch as the scratch stings deep and feel the warm blood trickle down your cheek.  Purely an accident right?  But what if it wasn't?
A Jubokko is a vampiric tree, malicious and always thirsty for human blood.  Born from the tear soaked grounds of ancient battlefields, it waits, silently until a passerby strays too close.  A quick scratch for a few drops of blood might be all it wants, but if it hasn't fed for a long time it grabs its unsuspecting prey with its gnarled old limbs, squeezing and crushing until all of the victim's fluids have moistened the tree's roots.  Empty husks of former victims litter the ground around the jubokko, attracting all manner of evil creatures with a taste for flesh...






A nice quick build and paint for this one- starting with a GW plastic tree with minimal retexturing and resculpting, and a bunch of plastic skulls and bones.  Hopefully a useful bit as background/scenery as well as a fierce monster  :)
This kind of tempts me to attempt at an Aokigahara themed board using a mix of reality and some of what I remember from Samurai Deeper...
