We Bid a Fond Farewell To John Bonnet, Pro Painter.

25 posts in this topic

As some of you may know, John Bonnet ('GoldenEagle') of Reaper Miniatures has been called back into the Army for ten months. On Friday, July 21st, friends gathered in Denton to say goodbye. John decided to cheat the military out of the fun of shaving his head. It was an historic event.

Bonnot Chops were the look of the evening. Vogue says, 'They're the new black.'

Members of the tribe gather to witness the ritualistic shearing. Locks of hair will be carefully preserved by tribal craftsmen, who believe the victim's mana will thereby augment their own skills.

Hmm. Suddenly even Reaper Bryan's looking pretty hot. In comparison.

By the harsh light of day, the true horror of the night's events is revealed.

At least he got a cake. Chocolate cake, even.

 

We will miss you, John! ::(:

It would be a great time to work on some desert camo schemes as well.

 

Keep your head down, and stay safe!

I have repeated this Mantra to my Business partner every time we speak (as he has also been overseas with the army).

 

Stay Safe

 

 

it seems to work...

 

Remember in the hot, hot weather. Methol Gold Bond works wonders (according to my sources), something about a thousand faries.

 

 

Stay Safe, and get back soon.

Thanks for the well-wishes ::D:! They're still trying to figure out what they want to do with me (for though I am a Deathseeker I am still a broken one) so I'm not gone to play in the sand yet. I gotta say, I miss having hair, but at least I still have my monkey-osity. Thanks for posting the pics Jen!
