So today I have a little something that didn't take too long to paint, nor was it particularly difficult. Perhaps it would be fair to say that this model was in now way exceptional or even particularly interesting. However, even if the model itself isn't too unusual the story of how I acquired it is. You see, as the title of this post suggests I found this on the side of the road. The story of which I shall reveal bellow.

So how did I find this little guy? Well I was out walking with a friend one evening and there in the corner of my vision I notice something on the ground. Now after working in litter picking for a while I have developed quite the ability to spot random objects on the ground so noticing this model wasn't too difficult. I quickly picked it up and put it in my pocket. Later when I got home I noticed that it actually worked quite well size wise with 1/72 miniatures. However, I still have no idea what it is, who makes them or why it came to be by the side of the road? If anyone has any clues as to what this may be please let me know. Anyway here are some more pictures.

|Where this guy lives I am not sure yet. Perhaps some strange cemetery? Maybe an ancient temple. Hard to say really.|
|A figure for scale. Decided that this man and his crucifix would be appropriate facing a this unholy creature.|
|Then again perhaps this creature is merely misunderstood and in need of a guy. Probably a good meal too.|
So there you have it my fun little find and the story to go with it. Still trying to guess what this is meant to be. It reminds me of some dinosaurs but I can't place it. Also makes me think of dogs, perhaps it was once the pet of some ancient king who is back to protect the resting place of his master? Perhaps he can be multiple things.
Anyway that is all for now. Working away slowly at various things. Unlikely to have anything to show you for the near future at least. Of course I also have all those new models to contend with too. Perhaps a few shall be fast tracked into painting for some personalities.
Yet until next time I wish you all a good day/night. ::)
