Cereal Killers

You know you’ve been at work indoors and on lockdown for too long when you start looking at breakfast cereals and think not “Mmm, yum …” but “Hmm, trees, people shapes …”

The darker-skinned people of the Bronze Fish tribe win a small victory over the paler-skinned Krispi tribe, who flee leaving their dead and wounded on the field of battle.

Snap! Crackle! Pop! The sounds of battle?

The wounded were unceremoniously eaten, and not by wild scavenging animals.

Some more of the Krispi tribes people, fleeing the “blood bowl” of battle and the cereal killing, were later found floating face down in a small bowl-shaped lake of milk …

The model and craft shops are shut, online orders may take ages, some days you just have to improvise.* I’m not suggesting we all take up edible gaming, especially not after coating them first in PVA and sticking them to tuppenny coins.

The source of these cereal killers did not require an “essential” and “infrequent journey” to a food shop. They were in the cupboard.

* Do not worry, I have plenty of other figures to paint and repair.

Stay Home. Stay Safe. Enjoy your hobby and blogging.

  1. Games Workshop’s April Fool’s Day video is apropos!

    That said, while this is actually an inexpensive idea I’d love to try at work, in the current climate we’d get in SO MUCH TROUBLE for passing germs…

    1. Thanks Jennifer, hadn’t seen this video. I was hoping for more fantastic shapes in the bowl. I think if you introduced edible gaming (generals – eat your ‘winnings’) into your library gaming setting, you would probably fail not just on germ terms but on a nation of victorious gamers with obesity and no teeth from the sugar content. The losers would be the fitter.
