LPL round 9: Susie and the Snow Goons! RUN!

Round 9 has concluded, and here is my entry:

Susie and the Snow Goons! RUN!


In homage and reference to the seminal comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. Here we have Calvin’s instantly recognizable wierd snowmen, and Susie, his neighbor/friend/schoolmate and part-time nemesis in addition to Calvin and Hobbes themselves.


You can read more about Calvin and Hobbes here.

We’re walking in the air (…)
Suddenly swooping low
On an ocean deep
Rousing up a mighty monster from his sleep
And walking in the air
We’re dancing in the midnight sky …

(from The Snowman, 1982)


I used Warlord Games WGS-STG-10 Melting Snow for the snow on the bases.

These were painted in November.


In other news, I have managed to deliver the tenth and last round in time. This one is a squad with a vehicle within the optional America theme. There is only a six man squad and the vehicle on the entry, as there were four minis from the original 10-model squad that I did not have the time to finish up because of work-related obligations. But there are enough of them finished to count as a team for the league, so that is now a wrap. At last I can move on to other things in my own good time, without any more deadlines to stress out over.

Well, after I finish last four of the squad that is.
