"...end's well?"

A final Wishing well joke about shy but consenting adults...
















There a number of water well models in 54mm/ 1/32 scale around that fit in a toy set-up. Two are MARX repros recast by The Hobby Bunker folks and easily available. I chose this "vintage" wishing well that is a  Snow White fast food toy. I liberated this from my kids and painted it. It just looks more magical to me. Wells and water pumps (there are MARX repros of those to) make good center pieces for stories and set ups of miniatures. If you war game 54mm, a well is a good objective.

Ned and Miss Amy are two heavily converted LEMAX figures and the "ideal" Miss Amy is a repro MARX Bathing  Beauty. Poor Miss Amy was interrupted by the Reverend before she could make HER wish for a more hunky Ned.

"Hell" is an unpainted MARX Gold Rush mine tunnel entrance. Armies In Plastic Chinese "Boxers" stand in for Satan's minions.
A string of Halloween lights (thanks Captain) are the "Lake of Fire" in the background.
 Revelation 20:15 "...And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."

So watch what you wish for!
