A brillig gift by Matt 15mm Jabberwock and August offers!

A regular customer of 15mm.co.uk recently got in touch with us and showed us the lovely gift he had made for his wife using our HOT94 Jabberwock.  I was so impressed that I wanted to show everyone what this fellow Matt in Australia had done.  He took this excellent 15mm monster and after painting it up placed it on a scenic base atop of tall plinth upon which are the words of Lewis Carroll; the origin of this fabulous creature.

We hope you enjoy these images and a big well done from our team including the designer of our Jabberwock Sam Croes.  An excellent gift.  If you are interested you can see our monster in the HOT 15mm Fantasy range HERE.  Below are three other pictures of Matt's gift showing it from different angles.

If you have not read Lewis Carroll's poem here it is in full:

Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll 

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves 
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: 
All mimsy were the borogoves, 
      And the mome raths outgrabe. 

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son! 
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! 
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun 
      The frumious Bandersnatch!” 

He took his vorpal sword in hand; 
      Long time the manxome foe he sought— 
So rested he by the Tumtum tree 
      And stood awhile in thought. 

And, as in uffish thought he stood, 
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, 
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, 
      And burbled as it came! 

One, two! One, two! And through and through 
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! 
He left it dead, and with its head 
      He went galumphing back. 

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? 
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy! 
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!” 
      He chortled in his joy. 

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves 
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: 
All mimsy were the borogoves, 
      And the mome raths outgrabe.
