3" x 3"
The iron game piece. I asked myself the question recently. Which game piece always insures victory on the Monopoly board? While researching my question, I found an interesting commentary that I will share with you.
Firstly, the dog zones in on the hat and just tears it apart. While that's going on, the shoe is kicking the dog in the butt long enough to distract the dog which allows the cannon to take the dog down Michael Vick style. I love rooting for the dog, but that cannon saw an easy target. With the shoe's efforts directed at the dog, the battleship shoots enough ammo into the shoe to make the shoe into swiss cheese. Shoe down. Just as the battleship rips apart the shoe, the thimble comes in and pounds the battleship into the ground. Look at how sturdy that thimble is! The battleship ship had no chance of piercing the thimble's armor with their tiny little guns.That leaves iron, wheelbarrow, cannon, race car, and thimble. This whole time the wheelbarrow is off working on its secret attack. The canon figures the car is its next target. The thimble is too tough and the iron just doesn't have any meat on it to aim at. The car is a big target and doesn't have much armor. It can be shifty and move around but what else can it do? It can't ram into anything. It will just get stalled. The thimble and cannon team up and the thimble manages to slow down the car a bit by getting the car to partially crash into the thimble. This allows the cannon to blast the car away. Just as the cannon finishes off the car, the wheelbarrow arrives and dumps a big payload of dirt into the cannon. The cannon reacts and attempts to fire back at the wheelbarrow only to self-implode. Cannon down.Now it's down to the iron, wheelbarrow and thimble. The iron melts down the wheelbarrow. Easy as that. It's a long, drawn-out battle, but the iron eventually melts down the thimble. The thimble managed to pound off the iron's handle, but the iron remains hot and victorious.
So there you have it. This is painting 305 in my miniature painting series. Painting Sold.
