But there is more …
Some of you may also remember the two unsuccessful duels fought by me with Curt in the Fourth and Fifth Challenges … with the wager of one completed grey-scale miniature for each contest. Although made a reasonable stab at completing my figure target in the Fourth Challenge, my Challenge last year (the Fifth) fizzled out. The victor in both contests – one Mr. C. Campbell Esq., of Regina, Canada. And yes, as you may have guessed, circumstances had conspired to make the delivery of Mr Campbell’s prizes somewhat late also …
Some of you may by this point in this post now be too overcome to read more ...
There is, however, a happy ending. So read on, dear fellow-contestants.
So here they are – my (very late) Curt-geld from the fourth and fifth Challenges and Curt’s duelling prizes.
First up – one of the Wild Bunch, with a touch of the Warren Oates about him. Advancing in years (like so many of us), but deadly, none-the-less.
They say, a Lannister always pays his debts ….
… and, finally, I can justly claim that a Roundwood does also!
Ahh, this is fantastic work Sidney! The two WWI greyscale models (with their evocative flourishes of colour) will be honoured additions to my collection. In addition, I can see both the grizzled Mr. Oats and the ranting Rocket Trooper as future villains in our upcoming Pulp games. Absolutely brilliant.
It would be negligent of me not to give a just reward for such wonderful figures, especially as you did not benefit from them in the previous Challenges. 50 points for you Mr. Roundwood, paid in full and thank you very much!
