Treebeard and more (not hobby-related)

As some of you know I have a little collection of Prince August's Mithril-figures. They weren't that expensive when I bought them and now they are stored in the cellar (5 shoeboxes of them and some GW-figures). Sometimes I look in those boxes for old times sake and bring out a figure or two. This time it was Treebeard with Pippin and Merry. Probably painted Pippin blonde to get some variety and the same for punkrocker Merry. Treebeard is painted with Humbrol's enamels 110 and 30 (or 80) is my guess and the hobbits are painted with Humbrol Acrylics. I won't repaint them, but let them sleep in their boxes and wake some up from time to time and show my little world of followers. This was painted 20-25 years ago.

A little continuation from the previous post. The view from our skislope:

And the back of the skislope. This is the way I use. Not long and not steep.

Sunday me and my brother (and Valter of course) kidnapped Valter's girlfriend Zelma. Her owners knew that we were going to take her so it was no problem with them. :-D We went south to an island to the East-South-East from here. The castle on that island is one of Sweden's most haunted places and also the church is said to be haunted. But we just walked in the forests there. They are only haunted by wild animals like boars and deer and hares, etc. We were lucky and didn't meet any boars so we just had a good time in the sunny weather. Even Zelma, when she realized that it WAS fun to be kidnapped by us. And she also enjoyed the pancake we had brought for her.

Here is Zelma at a holy tree. :-D Ah, yes, she's no boxer. She's a Staffordshire Bullterrier. Just like the one we had when I grew up.

Here is the haunted castle. It is called Ängsö, just like the island. If you see something strange (I don't) it is probably a ghost. :-D

And here is the church. Also haunted!

Hope to get back to the hobby-related stuff later, but right now this will have to do. Who knows, next post can be a fictionalized version of my life as a local, not very succesful, rock musician. Or some other Mithril-figure maybe. :-D
