This most wholesome of hobbies is a wonderful thing, it allows me be creative, to escape any real world difficulties and has introduced me to some truly wonderful people. One such individual is Dave Stone of 'Wargames Terrain Workshop'. I have already made mention of Dave's generosity in the past, but he also has an unerring knack of bringing a smile to my face at just the right time. At the start of the academic year, I had dropped off the blogging scene due to the difficulties at work, a sad portent of what was to unfold. There I was quietly going about my business when I was roused from my lethargy by a sharp rap on the door.
Having padded to the front door, I thanked the Postman for the parcel he was delivering and headed back upstairs to my little corner of the spare room. Having seen the W.T.W. sticker on the front of the box, I could hardly contain my excitement as I opened the package to find more exquisitely wrapped goodies inside. As I carefully unwrapped each piece I was somewhat overcome at the generosity of the gift. Dave had gifted me a collection of bespoke Star Wars miniatures, crafted by his own fair hand, and not available for sale.
I wiped the tears of joy from my eyes as the largest smile broke across my reddened face; this was just too much. As I arranged each piece carefully on the table in front of me I realised that I was now the proud owner of a complete set of Jabba the Hutt's dancers and indeed the rest of the band that played in his courtroom. It gives me great pleasure to finally present the dancers here and therefore have the opportunity to publicly thank Dave for his incredible generosity.
The dancers include, Oola, who met her grisly end in the Rancor's pit, Greeata, Lyn Me, Rystáll and Yarna d'al' Gargan. They are cast in resin and although the extremities are delicate, they take paint rather well.
So all that remains is to once gain thank Dave for his wonderful gift, I am just sorry you have had to wait so long to see them finally posted here. I would like to say that the rest of the band are next, but it would seem that I have been somewhat distracted of late, but rest assured I will get to them in due course.
