‘Twas the night before Hogswatch and all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even the Death of Rats.
Hogswatch is fast approaching and Micro Art Studio have brought out two new additions to the Discworld range. You better watch out…
The night before Hogswatch kids all over the Disc are waiting expectantly for the Hogfather to come bringing presents to good kids and bags of bloody bones to the bad. But where is he? There isn’t an entirely appropriate human word for it so let us settle for… gone.
This leaves Death the job of keeping faith in Hogfather alive, or else the sun will not come up.
With a pillow up his shirt, a false beard and a little practice on the HO HO HO’s Death is ready to take on a slightly different job to what he’s used to.
And where Death goes he is sure to be followed by Alberto Mallich, founder of Unseen University, manservant to Death and the only man ever to have tried to fry porridge.
Taking on the role of the Hogfather’s pixie helper, Albert is always there to give his master his rather cynical advice on the customs of this fine holiday and also to take care of any sherry and pork pies the little kiddies have left for the Spirit of the Midwinter festival. Oh and one turnip.
As usual with Micro Art Studio’s Discworld range the miniatures are absolutely top notch, sure to brighten anyone’s stocking this year.
This just leaves me to ask, have you been naughty or nice? HO HO HO
