Croquet Dwarves

This is a picture of two NWOBHM Dwarfs with earrings and ponytails, in a dungeon, playing croquet. In a gamebook. In 1985.

I defy you to find a more Brit Old School picture than this. Go, on I bloody defy you to beat that!

(Jon Glentoran for Warlock No. 7 from the solo adventure The Temple of Testing, December 1985)


  1. Uh... nope. You've got me there. Wait... uh. Nope.

  2. Hallo! Fellow subject of Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II here, from the cold wastes of Canuckistan...

    The picture I would suggest as possibly coming close to the Croquet Dwarves only exists in my mind:

    The Sea Elf named Air Dressair who wields the enchanted sword Stylinn Coam.

    'Nuff said.

    Thankye, Coop!

  3. I suppose a Ranger holding a Union Flag stuck in front of an Ogre and an orc fighting a lizard man on the front of the Regiments of Renown box is a little too blatant.
