Yes, it's that time of year when we celecrate the winter solstice on a pagan holiday and like many others. I'll be doing the same without most of my family (sadly), but happy in the knowledge that they're all safe and well and I'm still awaiting the opportunity to hold my new grandson of four months, but I'm a patient chap!.
[All my new, soon to be, citizens of my old west set-up]
The photograph above happened by a chance visit to a "Pound Shop" (Not Poundland), where I took the opportunity for a quick visit, whilst SWIMBO was doing someboring shopping elsewhere (food, presents etc.). I came across a whole section of these figures and quickly bought a couple of packs to scale them against my 54mms.
[The two 'sample' packs]
After testing for suitability, my daughter volunteered to set out and buy what she could as they scaled up well and here's the proof:
[The three gentlemen, flanked by two timpo figures]
[They'll require a bit of work, but they have a great deal of charm imho]
[The ladies, there'll be a lot of cutting to do and the fifth figure is a rear view of the preceding one]
As a bonus I also had my daughter nab a few lamposts! :-
[At least double the size of a figure and the wreath is just snapped on and easily removed]
The children will require a lot more work, they have a lot of extra bits (snowbaords ffs!), but it's the adults that will get seen o first.
A very welcome find and a something that has amanged to cheer me up in these dismal times.
No matter how or if you celebrate this holiday, I hope you all keep safe amd have a good a time as possible.
Thanks for taking the itme to visit and of course your comments are always welcomed and appreciated.
Happy Xmas, Hannuka, Mithrasmas or whatever, I'm off to slaughter a bull and drink its blood before the exchange of presents for Saturnalia.
