Fulimbar Badnickel was a dwarf of some renown amongst his people. Working tirelessly in the mines he was the one who always seemed to strike the richest veins of ore. Fond of brew and battle, Fulimbar was in most ways a dwarf's dwarf.
However, according to his wife Isibeal, he had one very annoying shortcoming.
Fulimbar like colour and the brighter the better.
"Every time we go above ground you embarrass me!" Isibeal would yell. "No self respecting dwarf goes around dressed in blue." she spat the word out like it was a bad piece of tobacco. "We live below ground, where it's dirty, smelly and brown! One of these days the Fantasy Police will come along and take you and your painter away in shackles!"
"Let 'em try!" Fulimbar would roar. "Between my hammer and her temper, those boys don't stand a chance!" And so it was that despite the pressure exerted on him by his wife and the threats of imprisonment of his painter by the Fantasy Police, Fulimbar strode proudly above ground garbed in the brightest of blues.
I have an update regarding my Painting Challenge. There were a number of people who felt like it would be unfair not to have a gorgeous Red Head painted up for the competition. And they were right. Paul from Paul's Bods offered to step into the breach and paint up a 28mm Red Haired beauty.
So now we have what Clint has dubbed The Neapolitan Challenge! ( Not to be confused with the Napoleon Challenge which just winds up in a lot of childish bickering).
Okay folks it's Thursday and that's not the same as Friday. So play make believe if you have to and pour yourself some tequila and put on a little Salsa and dance like you've got the weekend in front of you. I know I will.
