Tank and Troll...Ironic I Know!

Mkay, so, I've finally got the time to make a blog post and with that the time to go through all the names suggested for this tank. There is now a poll up, and when it's done it's done. That is the name it shall have! So vote with great wisdom  you are selecting the name of a mighty battle tank worthy of a mighty name!

That aside another blogger that I cannot recall right now and even with very thorough searching of the list of past blog entries is not helping me to recall (deep breath) posted his first even miniature. I dug mine out (he said I had to and he's tougher than me so that was that) and here it is... official Ral Partha Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Troll with the TSR logo on the bottom and all, painted in official Ral Partha paints! This was my first foray when I was around 13 or 14. I got this guy and a handful of other figures, a boxed dragon, and a passel of paints and brushes for Christmas that year. I couldn't get the dragon together to save my life and although I did paint some of the others I'm not sure where they are now. I think he's not bad for my first try, and having nothing to go off from but my best guess.  I had no friends who were painting miniatures and I had no exposure to miniature war games. I lived in the boondocks of Ohio, I'm probably pretty luck I had an f'ing Troll at all, LOL!

Well there he is in all his yellow eyed glory, I've not updated the paint at all and I think it's held up pretty good for 20 plus years. Those Ral Partha paints were something huh?

Don't forget to vote, and till next  time may the dice favor you!
