A Black tide sweeps down from the North
« on: June 04, 2010, 00:06:04 »


Kindly Abbott Hamilton recently sent me a delegation of six Nuns to join the single Nun I had acquired previously. One of the rare religious figures that Playmobil has produced, they stand here on the porch of my church with their Mother Superior, alongside father Dougal. I knoe very little about nuns, but will be reading up more.

I had intended to combine two churches to make one big cathedral, to house all my nuns, monks, priests and Crusaders, but there is am slight overhang from the roof that prevents me just joining two side by side.



I know others have overcome this problem, and I will too, probably by ordering more of the 30 28 6830 solid roof piece that has no overhang, and making a whole solid roof.

A nice little nunnery there!

Is Father Dougal expecting a visit from Father's Ted and Jack ?  ;D

Superb Martin  :wow:

I love the fact that you individualised them by giving each one a different hair colour. Glad you like them, they were causing far too many problems at the priory of Abbot Hamilton.  :lol: What are we going to do about Maria? :lol:

The popping wimples are a bit of a nuisance, that I haven't bothered to fix yet. I'll probably hot glue them on. Of my seven nuns five have loose wimples.
