Beware the Were-Chickens of Beesdone!

Uncle Rogipoos and Jose survey their new premises!

A few weeks ago Tony Harwood asked me to do him a little favour.  What is it you ask!  To send on a gift to Roger Willcox, or as he is better known to the Notables Yahoo Group ‘Uncle Rogipoos’.  I was delighted to do this for Roger as he is a very entertaining and stand up fellow who often makes me laugh with his crazy tales of adventure on the group.  Also to help out Tony who is a very talented modeller and fan of Flintloque.  Above you can see the item which was the gift.  The coop of the Were-Chickens of Beesdone.  I could not resist having a look and taking some pictures.  This image shows the coop along with Uncle Rogipoos and his pet Armadillo Jose, two miniatures from the VLE10 set based on Roger’s characters.

I can say that Roger got the gift in perfect time for Halloween as Tony asked me.  He did open it a day early and I accept the blame for this as a recent bad head cold made me forget to email Roger and tell him not to open it to the 31st!  But hey ho.   I know Tony is planning a book on his wonderful terrain, perhaps the coop will feature in it.

  1. Best present I`ve had in ages! It stands in my “very special models” shelf and has already attracted a lot of interest! Ali and I have a friend who is tempted to try Flintloque and was delighted to find that her name Moon Willow is now a part of Shirewood lore. Oh no! “Moon Willow wider than a…” best not go further! The sagas of the Were-Chikens and Trevor the Ferret (and other stuff) move on apace! I must go out now and shut the Were-Chickens in. Huzzah!

    • That will mean a lot to Tony. Speaking as one who saw and held the coop it is a lovely piece of unique work, modelling at its best.

      Yes…don’t finish that sentence for gawds sake sir!
