One for the kids
« on: December 01, 2012, 01:10:18 PM »
One for the kids.

Okay, following last years successful kiddie painting competition we thought this year we might jazz it up a bit.
We have got loads of spare Oberon antlers. We would like the kiddies to make us a "rudolf".
We will send out the antlers for free and they have a choice of either converting and painting one of your existing
'spare' Hasslefree figures or making their very own version
of Rudolf.
Bear in mind we have kids of our own and we know what abilities kids of varying ages have so we will know if you have
cheated and sculpted it for them.
There are no winners or losers, just a little project that you can do with your kids between now and the middle of January.... for fun.

Anyone up for it?

A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

Does the Green stuff pack have a "Do not eat!" sign on it? Might want to emphasise that...

Hoping this is the right place to put this up :)

Torin has finished his rudolf (with lots of help!)

here are Adam and Jacks versions of Rudolph. Jack is 4 and Adam is 7
Jack's "Rudolph the frog"


Adam's Rudolph the Snail



Adam had no help and Jack had a little before telling me "I need to do it myself, daddy!"
It hasn't been nice enough to get them undercoated yet. A great fun introduction to miniature sculpting.
