AHPC8 - Flight - 25mm Roman guard dogs

Well its time for the first Bonus round entry. 
Curt's once again killing me with his choices, this one is "Flight"
Now my problem is I don't own any periods past the year 1763 so its a tad difficult
finding something that could fly?
So its lateral thinking time again?
After a rummage in one of the many unloved and forgotten boxes of unpainted lead I found these
I think they're old Gripping Beast figures, although I can't find them on their website? 
They were in a bag with some GB civilians, so who knows?
So here's my entry 12 Geese!

Is anyone else having trouble commenting on blogs recently?
I have to press publish several times before my comments posted?

AHPC8 - 1st entry 25mm Last of the Mohican's

My first entry into the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge 8.
Is this pack of figures from Warlord Games, containing all the main characters from the excellent 1992 film The Last of the Mohicans. 
From left to right Cora Munro, Alice Munro, Hawkeye, Chingachgook, Uncas 
and the darstardly Magua.
I won't be using the figures for these characters, mine will be leaders, heroes and other
 characters for my Indian Donnybrook force.
This entry earned me 30 points

Santa Claus, Secret Santa and other Christmas goodies!

It seems that I did rather well this Crimbo!

Santa Clause
Three ECW/Late 1600's figures that'll be added to my Donnybrook collection.
Centre and right are 2 Col Bill's figures, but I'm not sure of the chap on the left?
Thanks Santa!!!

Secret Santa or not so....Thanks DaveD!
Three packs of ECW Musketeers including command
Once again these will certainly find their way on the painting table, to be used as militia/settler
types for early America.

My two eldest daughters were struggling to buy me something. I gave a few helpful hints!!!
I already have the book above on a CD, but a book's a lot better, I'm sure you'll all agree?

Now I wasn't expecting the book, I'd asked for a subscription to the Pike & Shot Society,
so then I could buy some of their books myself, but I got both!
Also copies of this year Arquebusier mag too!
Thank you No 2 daughter Abi

Lastly, the mystery pressie from daughter No1 Emily
Thank you Emily!
11 packs of figures that'll hopefully make it on this years Challenge?
But what are they?
They could be Donnybrook or could be En Guarde?

All for one!

AHPC8 - Respect my Authoritah!

Well its started!
Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge 8 that is???
and it's nearly my time of the week to be Minionated 
I've been studying the War & Peace sized file sent over by the newest honourary 
Reject, that stats mad Geek, Sir Miles of the Lake.
Don't know about the rest of the new Minions....but do you understand that stuff?
As for my Wednesday victims, do what Cartman says above!
Curt has given me permission to take points off my victims, if any of their posts mentions 
Badgers, budgie smugglers or Sandbags.
And what makes it even better is I can transfer the points to me!!!

Mwah ha ha!
