It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

It’s June, and that means it’s time for my most favoritest, bestest painting challenge ever, Forgotten Heroes! I look forward to this every year, and I will always take part unless Carrion Crow says I can’t, or I’m dead.

What is Forgotten Heroes? Go here. The Crow will explain all.

So…what do I have planned for this year? Two submissions; one that’s going to be easy as pie (I hesitate to call it a proper submission); and another that may take a little more effort. Two submissions is not much for me, but I’m still trying to get through my Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps miniatures, and finish up my British Vospers for Cruel Seas; both of which were put on pause for Monster May(hem) last month. Plus, I will have June’s Character of the Month to do…

Still, a mere two submissions isn’t sitting well with me. This is Forgotten Heroes, man. It’s time to bring it, brah! (I call people “brah” now.)

So if YOU want to take part in Forgotten Heroes, drop by Carrion Crow’s Buffet if you haven’t already and let the man know. Bring something shiny (crows like shiny things) and/or something dead (crows like carrion) to improve your chances.

Just kidding. He lets everyone join. Even me.

Don’t bring him anything dead.

      Right back ‘atcha, Dave. I first became aware of you through this very challenge when I marveled at your green stuff kung-fu, and you graciously gave me advice. I still can’t sculpt worth shit, but it’s not your fault I suck. Your advice was sound.
      Forgotten Heroes is more than just a cool challenge. I get to see what talented folks do every year! This year looks pretty great, considering who’s already RSVP’d for it!

    I love your enthusiasm for my humble little challenge, Keith! I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone does this year. My first post is up, and is suitably bonkers… as usual.

    As for bringing me dead stuff…yeah, probably not a good idea. My fridge/freezer has just died and the temperature over here is not conducive to storing carcasses.

      We are clearly cosmically connected, Jez. I am also having refrigerator woes at present. I am presently drinking heavily to avoid heading to Best Buy and turning into the Hulk. They delivered a new refrigerator to my home today, and it is broken. When I called to report the problem, they told me I need to call the manufacturer. It has been in my home for less than 8 hours, and it cost me $1500 US dollars. I haven’t even put any food in it yet.
      The scotch is doing its job. So far.
      Tomorrow is another day.
      I should also say that it has been a while since I have merited my Internet name. But rest assured, I am called such for a reason. And that reason is stirring. Like a shadow on the door of a cottage on the shore of a dark, Scottish lake, many miles away.

    Do you know I think it’s just all new stuff is sh*t!! we bought a new cooker, a fridge and a washing machine last year and not one of them works properly! (also the new car had to go back and be fixed three times after only 200 miles but as I work in the factory where it was built, I’ll let that one pass ).

    Great to see you taking party in this again this year, I hope to post a few WIP shot’s at the weekend of my first entry. I’m only doing two (and a bit) entries too, so we can both be under achievers together!

    Cheers Roger.

      My refrigerator is all set.
      It’s amazing how things work out. Especially when you ask to see both managers on duty, shoot one, then explain to the other what your problem is.

      Just kidding, of course.
