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)

  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.
