    He showed up for the lesson on how to avoid drawing feet in detail but was off sick when they did eyelids.

    How not to be seen.

    Don’t s̶t̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶u̶p do this.

    What, exactly, is the second Slith in the line going to do with that “weapon” he is carrying?

    Or is he the troop musician, playing his skull maraca with a menacing jangle?

    Knowing nothing of Silth physiology, looking at the beards warlocklike could possibly be more appropriate

  6. Max Bathroom Says:

    He’s the standard bearer. That’s a Warhammer command group, so presumably the lad with the stylish hat is the musician, and the corpse is either the leader or the champion…

    They were stalking Doom, unaware that Doom’s surname was Baggins.

    It may just be the scan, but it would be understandable if Silith is freaked out by someone whose face looks like bad AI art.
    (Is Silith a people, or just one witchy Evil Overlord?)

    Where are the archers that put down the (presumed) defenders? Or are those MAGIC ARROWS?

    Figured it out The kid is the mythical Dooms Talker – Talker of Dooms.

    Doom’s Talker — Gladys, and the earful (and those are big ears) she’s going to give her husband after dinner.

    He couldn’t even be bothered to butcher the meat, just leaves it lying around in the yard.

    The barrel also makes me wonder if she’s thinking, “Now I’ve got to pickle another damn head too! Someday it’ll be his!”

    I can see this as retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as reimagined by Tanith Lee, aaaaaaaaand it’s not gonna go well for Gladys G this time around!
