Right well before I begin I’d like to apologise for disappearing over the last couple of weeks, real life has reared its head and snaffled up all my time of late, so this is going to be a quick post with no painted stuff in it (sorry), I will do a Mo’vember round up in the next week or so detailing all the entries you lot have done.
Right now onto the “Challenge” mentioned in the title of this post, my wife and I were talking a few of months back about “Advent Calendars” and she asked if I’d like one this year (I have had a “Thornton’s Chocolates” one in the past (yum!!)), and I said no but it was a shame you couldn’t get one with figures in. Well resourceful gal that she is, she went and found one, from “Mighty Lancer Games” that contains 24 Reaper “Bones” figures, now this is not an official Reaper product (hence the somewhat generic look of the box), but instead is made up by MLG themselves, and so probably contains all the stuff they haven’t been able to sell! 😉
It also cost £50.00, which seems a lot (to me it did!) but I guess that is only a smidge over £2.00 a figure, so not bad really (mind you, you aren’t picking what figs you want, so I leave the final decision up to you). But anyway she bought me one (lucky boy that I am) and I have been staring at it hungrily since mid-September dying to know what’s in it! (I’ll start finding out come Wednesday), but what to do with them once I have all twenty four, well I’ve taken inspiration from Keith (Dead Dicks Tavern) who has been painting up a D&D character each month this year, so I intend to paint up two figures from this calendar each month throughout 2022, Now hopefully there will be something in there that I can also lump into our other challenges, such as Mo’vember, Monster Mayhem, Fem’bruary even possibly Dave’s Season of Scenery (I really have no idea what’s in there!) and so kill two birds with one stone (No pun intended Dave! 😁).
As they say in a famous film…..
“Life is like a box of Chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get”, likewise I don’t know what I’m going to get in here, though it’s obviously more like a chocolate advent calendar than a box, except of course you know what you’re going to get out of a chocolate advent calendar, a piece of chocolate, so not really like that either….OK so bad analogy. But you get the idea, anyway we shall see what I get over the next twelve months.
Till next time, Cheers Roger.
