From EdwinK: 28mm Santa (7 points)


Edwin sends in this wonderful Santa, who by looking at him, would seem more at home in a B-25 than a Christmas sleigh.

From Edwin:
I owe it to the kindness of fellow painters.  I casually observed on the Facebook page that I thought that North Star's Christmas freebie (28mm) would make an nice entry in the non-combatants' round and Paul Brewerton promptly offered to send me one.  Of course, I later put in an order to North Star of my own, so I've an extra.  I shall have to put on my thinking cap to see what I'll do with that one.


As we see, Santa is armed and determined looking.  Those Sky Pirates could stoop to anything...

Excellent work Edwin! Is that a DFC that I see pinned on his chest? Very suitable I think. 

This grimly jolly (is that even possible?) St. Nick will give Edwin 7 points. I know he should be 5 points, but it somehow seems churlish to score less for Santa (and besides, he's due at my house in a few hours...).

  1. Perhaps send the spare on to some lucky blogger ;-)

  7. Great mini and nicely done. He looks like the sort of Santa who has an extra reindeer on the quad .50 calls. I hope he did indeed visit Curt's place and left him and Sarah something nice in exchange for the extra 2 points.
