FLASHBACK: HOARD WORLD GARDEN PARTY featuring PREDATOR, ZODAC, GREEN ARROW, CAMILLA THE CHICKEN(S), JUDGE DREDD, MAX LEGGE AND MORE!




Some time ago now (October 2012, to be precise), we had some very special guest Hoard Worlders in the sunny backyard of Hoard World's previous Earth Headquarters.



MAX LEGGE & KEIRA SWAIN.

Before we knew it, a Hoard World Garden Party had begun. These impromptu events are rarely planned ahead of time, and it's even rarer for them to be captured by those soul-stealing digital camera machines, so it's quite a coup that these pics even exist! And, since Hoard World HQ relocated, we no longer have a backyard, so this may never happen again! 

Here's what went down. 86% of these photos were taken by Max Legge. 100% of these photos were taken outside.





My memory is a bit hazy, but it appears that some sort of illegal chicken poaching was taking place here.
 Pretty sure none of these guys had a permit.



There was a lot of sun and great natural light for pics, so Max decided to bring out the (now-defunct) Hoard World light box and patented white background for a few shots. This touching photo of Juggernaut and Camilla clearly about to embark on some interspecies cuddling, is a Max Legge original. And I'm pretty sure this was previously one of the only photos to ever make it out alive. It turned up over on Facey B last year some time.

Bravestarr's Scuzz & Fuzz. About to settle some old scores. (Relax, they're only cap guns.)
DRAW!
Who knew that Dutch Schaefer's love of cigars had rubbed off on his old pal?

Max and Keira were onto something with Six Shooter (from The Puppetmaster films) making the Kingdom Come incarnation of The Toyman into a makeshift marionette.

And that's when THIS happened.

Max's Pièce de résistance. It was like Gulliver's Travels meets Superhero Comics. I loved it.




And there we have it.

It's Max's 30th Birthday today. While I'm not there in person, I hope that him and Keira are having an amazing time, and that when they read this, they've had an amazing time.

Somebody somewhere once said, "When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put aside childish things."

My partner Eye-Shadow Weaver is a firm believer that you're not a real person until you hit 30. If that's the case, and based on that old timey saying, now that Max has "come of age", I disagree.

Don't ever put away those childish things, Max. What's so good about being an "adult" anyway?

Happy Birthday bloke. Here's to another 30 years. You and Keira are welcome on Hoard World anytime.


LOTS OF LOVE,

HOARDAX & EYE-SHADOW WEAVER.

Boooooo-oooooh.
