I get together most Monday nights and paint with a group of folks at our local nerd store. One Monday I showed up and didn't really have anything to paint. My buddy Dave jokingly pulled out this Nob, mentioned he was going to paint it Bad Moons colours, and said I could paint it for him.
He was very much kidding. Of course he didn't say "no" when I jumped up and said "yes." I've wanted to paint this model, in Bad Moons colours, for a long time.
Dave was quite pleased and I got a limited edition Space Marine model out of the deal. Good times.
