So this is the tomboys as their older selves. I see the custodian helmet was retained...

Indeed, mostly the same characters as last week, except the Upper Sixth's archeological trip is being led by Young Miss Lucton (centre, with two pistols), Mrs. Lucton's daughter. Mrs. Lucton herself is now a bit old for this sort of thing, and has to keep the school running anyway.



Real nice job on those Boot Hill guys, Goliad. Those patterned trousers (and the pinstripes) look like they might have been a nightmare to do.

Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

Lovely painting on both these entries.

Plynkes,

Who is the figure lurking behind the column on the left?

Oh that's Baldrick from my Round 1 entry. It's a little LPL tradition that began with Hammers that some people occasionally do in the LPL. A sort of Where's Wally/Waldo? game where you hide a figure in all your entries for people to spot. I guess I haven't done a very good job of hiding him here. He has been somewhere in the picture of all my entries so far this year.


Edit:


As to the specific figure, he's a TAG Elizabethan from their Renaissance range, based on the character Baldrick from Blackadder:

Genius!

I love the idea of grown-up versions of a previous entry. Clever continuity there. Plus they look great!

The painting on the trews in the lower entry is damn sweet!!

a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

Genius.  I had to go back to each of your entries to find him.  I must admit that I hadn't noticed him amongst all your other wonderful figures.  lol lol
