28mm Hinterland Princess Viktoria-Luise, Anonymous Book, Dice Shenanigans and........

...........how will you die if you found yourself in a slasher movie!

28mm figure from Hinterland Miniatures of a Princess who is a colonel in a Hussar regiment hence the death's head emblem, nice figure but deserved better, far nicer painted version on the Hinterland site.....





Andras found this picture!



Received this book from Edwin but not..... as when he ran his competition I was interested in this book in the give away but did not win as my luck with most competitions is atrocious, so anyway this arrived in the post with a note......


The note.........and thank you to my anonymous giver......much appreciated, half way through it already........


BigLee and his awful, awful dice rolling..... incredibly awful luck with dice and usually when I'm on his fecking side in a game and the challenge issued by Ray was is he the worst dice roller ever? I tried the challenge and yes he still is!!!!!


This little picture challenge tickled me.........

Seemingly I would end up as"The sinister stranger who is taken hostage at the very start of the film (pre-credits!)".

Compared to some of the outcomes this is not too bad..........



Have a good week if you can and don't forget the Google+ button for sharing and more communication between blogs,,,,,,,,,,,

BLOG-CON draws closer and Sidney Roundwood has asked for some help, BLOGGERS FOR CHARITY has had some good news and PR due to our mate Loki!

Still not started painting but getting there, just found out where I left my Mojo:D

  6. A very generous gift from someone.

    Take a look down the back of your sofa - your mojo may be there, but if not you'll probably find some loose change, pens, sweeties etc to make up for it.

    As for that picture challenge:
    "I am the big-chested (big chested? *pfft*, bimbo? *harrumph*) who is crushed to death but returns from the grave to seek my revenge"

  10. I wouldn't die in a slasher movie because I'd be the slasher and in my movie, evil always wins because good is dumb.

  29. Well thanks for that Fran. I'm the quiet, depressed one who gets raped before death and who's body is never found. I'd better carry a tin of starters in me pocket then . . . .

    I'm going to take lee's dice challenge now - that should be a laugh.

  37. Nicely painted Fran.

    I don't die in a slasher film. First of all I'm too classy to show up in a cheap film and secondly I'm too feckin' smart to get myself killed.
