Last month I treated myself to some of her unique products. I got myself the Food Supplies Basing Kit and Bunnies. While I was in her shop I figured I'd get some stuff for Middle Earth too: Dark Age Defending Villagers (I should've gotten 2 packs to be honest) and a shieldmaiden/Queen: Aethelflaed Lady of Mercia. I suppose they could end up in early medieval Europe, but really Rohan is more likely these days.
Why Bunnies? Well you obviously are a recent reader and think the title for this blog is mere whimsy. It isn't. Or just follow all the "Rabbits" tagged posts. So I obviously had to paint 6 of the bunnies as tributes to past family pets. The Dutchie (the white and dark brown bunny) is our first pet bunny, Blaze, who lived a long time (12 years!) despite our inexperienced care. If she had had the better diet and conditions of Nigella and her off spring who knows how long she'd have hopped about?
I don't know what they will do on the table, except provide amusement. But I had fun painting them, because bunnies.
The food all came as separate pieces (even the tiny bottles) and I grouped them onto bases. In hindsight getting her other pack of food supplies already grouped might have been easier.
She's a positive delight to do business with and her miniatures are great. In her WW2 range there is a pack of British housewives fighting off downed Luftwaffe or German paratroopers. One of them has a tea cup and pistol. I really think I should get her for Pottersville. So I hope Annie at Bad Squiddo carries on "ruining the hobby" and angering the ignoramuses. The rest of us will get some delightful miniatures.
