Yeah, I know, I was the man who even wasn't there. I didn't attend this year's BOYL yet I got this commemorative mini. What can I say, I didn't thought I was that resourceful!
Ahem. Sheer luck and good will. One of the attendants (whose true identity will be kept in secret as he/she/it has stepped into the witness protection programme) was so kind to get one for me (Thanks again!). No threats were done, or at least not too serious ones. That horse head incident was just an innocent joke.
(Ahem again) Speaking of beheaded stuff! The thing is that I am the lucky and proud owner of Olivia the girl with a head in her hand! I was so excited that I interrupted everything I had on the workbench and put my brushes on her...
|No, I don't think BOYLivia works for her|
|Olivia Giraffepants is neither suitable|
For all of you who don't know where the mini comes from, its origins go back to 1987 and this illustration in the Rogue Trader rulebook:
I've seen a couple of painted Olivias so far, and two really fine masterworks; one by Master Axiom and the other by Monsieur Asslessman. You better check their magnificent paintjobs! If I've missed any other one please let me know! I love to see how different people interpret the same mini from a B/W illustration, this is a perfect example of that.
I've begun another project, but that will be the subject of a future post, when I have some actual stuff to show. Soon, soon...
