So what in the hell am I talking about? I'm talking about a make-believe me as a painted miniature in a make-believe world called Franonia that is ruled by the dictator Fran (aka The Angry Lurker). If you follow Angry then you're aware that he's building his own world over at his place. Well as soon as I saw that first post I said to myself "Anne you've just got to become a citizen of Franonia." So thinking that two women coming at Angry would be better than just one, me and fellow blogger The Whisk asked if we could be part of Franonia. He said yes and painted a figure for both of us and mailed them to me. I got them in the post on Monday.
That's me on the right and The Whisk on the left. As we had a sunny day, I photographed these outside under my tree. Aren't we sexy? We can lure the enemy into Franonia and then the Marines can pick just pick them off at their leisure.
And this is us from behind. Be careful boys because I'm hiding a gun behind my back and I'm not afraid to use it.
I have to admit that getting this figure made me very happy and I wanted to put her somehwere special.
So I'm keeping her on my music stand in front of my drums where I can see her while I play.
And I think she goes well with the roses I have on my bass drum.
Now that I've actually held a figure in my hands, I'm even more excited about painting my own. I ordered my brushes, Kalinski sables in sizes 4/0, 3/0, 2/0 0/0 and 1. If any of you gamers think I need another size, let me know what it is, because 1 was the largest they had. I also bought 2 figures from CoolMiniOrNot. I got a female warrior and a male warrior at a very low price and these will be my practice pieces.
Normally I get sick to my stomach when I spend money on myself, but I didn't feel guilty about buying this stuff. So I decided "What the hell, I really want those frog figures from Dark Sword Miniatures and I'm happy, so why not?" I'm getting the Frog Jester, The Frog Master of the Hunt and The Frog Dragon Slayer.
I have however managed to distract the Hubby from how much I'm going to be spending when buying the rest of my supplies. I told him to go buy himself a new laptop computer and he did. Now I have all the leeway I need for my new addiction.
