@Makatishi
Just remembered: when cleaning out my Ral Partha stuff 3 weeks ago I found 3 tears, on your site you mention you are looking for some more, still interested?

If he's not, I am  ;)

OMG :o
You are so right, I'll change that immediately.
My apologies DD I am not sure how that got mixed up.

edit oh, and no thank you, I don't need any more but several others will no doubt want to take them off your hands (see above)

Wow, I love that watermark effect you got on the hippo - top stuff.  :-*

And that is one mean looking croc. Best remember to run in zig-zags, mate. (Does that actually work against crocs? Anyone know?)

technically no, crocs and alligators are both ambush predators at heart and therefore prefer to jump out at you (lunge) than to chase at all. alligators are more willing to follow but there approach is quite lazy and is more of a fast walk that you could probably outrun. you would literally have to shoot one in the face to provoke it enough and i bet then it wouldn't be able for obvious reasons. i think the myth comes from gators having there legs on the side and people imagine them breaking if the turned to fast and collapsed on themselves.

Malamute,
Lovely figures you have!

and a humble suggestion:
