Monsters, Zebus, Hills and Mice

Marty Feldman’s Monster sketch:

I can’t connect with this sketch at all, this never happens to me when I take one of my feline miscreants to the vets. They’re always quiet, docile, never trash the contents of their cat box, and certainly never draw blood by reaching out through the bars and slash me (or passers by) with their claws.

A grossly under-rated comedian, Marty Feldman also appeared in Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein.

Here’s the second version of the Zebu, as described earlier. This time with the top hatch open.

For my sci-fi stuff, I have some flat chipboard 4×2′ boards, painted but not very exciting. I had a spare GW plastic hill, so I used the baseboard emulsion paint for the abse, coat followed by Foundry Granite, some GW Thrakka Green wash for the gullies, Foundry Slate for the stone flanks and then some dried grass static grass.

For 15mm scale, this gives quite a good sized hill, with some interesting terrain, as you can see from the size of the two figures on the top.

Whilst writing this post, my Furry Feline Fiends, have brought home the Food.

Yum !
Just what I wanted after my sausages, mash and ratatouille…
They say that cats bring home their prey to their Human owners/servants because they are teaching us how to hunt and get proper food. That was the third mouse in 30 minutes, so I guess they found a nest and systematically brought it home to me. I suspect, tomorrow morning I’ll find the rest of the Family Mouse scattered around the front door and back door in various states of dismemberment.
