Larry Leadhead

Larry Leadhead was one of my favorite running series of gaming cartoons by Doug Hamm & Eric Hotz.  Several years there was a link on this site as the top most blog post (I changed the date to Dec. 31st each year) to their larryleadhead.org website which had an on-line cartoon that the cartoonists would automatically shuffle.  Then for a long time it was the same cartoon and several months ago the website seized to exist and nothing would post on this blogpost.  I don't know what happened but I suppose all good things must come to an end.

So, in memory of Larry Leahead, I've taken a picture of two strips which I've had taped appropriately to my "to be painted" shelf.

The first strip is actually dated the later of the two (September 3rd, 2010) and depicts Larry purchasing a castle, then the castle guard, and then an army before announcing that his workbench should be cleared right after the funeral.

The second printout is a very early strip (January 30th, 2001) which shows what happens if you actually paint all your figures - and between Reaper's Kickstarter and Kickstarter II, like the cartoon, I too should get to 147 years old.

I just found your blog, and I really like it. I subscribed, so I can follow it regularly. I found this list of Artist sites particularly useful: http://minipaint.blogspot.com/p/links-to-miniature-painters.html

There was a lot there for me to look at. Thanks for putting that together!

You're a pretty good miniature painter yourself, too!
