The nice thing about this hobby is that if you've been in it long enough, you open up some box or look on a dusty shelf, and it's like Christmas all over again! grin


Or in my case, I was doing some reorganizing and stumbled upon these wonderful Scrunts that were painted up by a professional painter for TMP, but ended up in a box during my house move of a few years ago, so missed their original date of appearing here on the website!


Scrunts, for those of you who may not know, are sci-fi Dwarves. They are a specialty of Bob Olley of Olley's Armies.


Now, you're probably wondering which Scrunts these are… and, unfortunately, I don't know. I checked their online catalog and didn't see them currently in production.


Bob sells off some of his lines from time to time, so perhaps they are in production under another company now.

Scrunts (back)

I expect that one of our readers will chime in with more information…


So, for example, I don't know what this cool 'football' gun is called…


…but I know it comes in two sizes! grin


And there's a cool gatling-thing.


Similarly, I can't tell you who painted these, because that information was lost in the great hard-drive-and-backup-crash of a few years ago. I think I know, but I'd hate to guess and get it wrong.


This looks like a flamethrower team to me.


When I commissioned these figures, I told the painter to do them any way he wanted. Sadly, there was probably a complete workbench article about how he painted these, lost in the crash. (And he didn't keep a copy.)

The only thing I did with these figures was to slap LITKO FlexSteel rounds on the bottom, for storage in magnet-lined containers. Hope you enjoyed these!
