I see that the traditional celebration in memory of Burning Heels is to knock one’s enemies off their own heels.
Meat’s back on the menu boys!
If they’re going to take a mouthful, a bit off the flank, I think he’ll feed everybody pretty well.
I’ve always been a fan of Daft Flank, especially after they did the soundtrack for Tron Leg-o-lamb, but they really did dip in quality during the Bacon After All years, though with the notable exception of one of the album’s singles, Prime Rib of your life.
This chapter certainly started on the wrong foot. He’ll not be seen again.
Unless he ends up being the sole survivor.
He’ll show up later in the story arch – at another camp, being chewed by some military ossifier for being out of cuneiform; no doubt with a strange tale to talus about how he got there.
geeze these jokes are getting toey
They might have just started on the wrong foot.
Still your tongue!
Burning heels, eh?
MAY THEIR Soles burn in Heel foreverll
Love his expression in the last panel.
AND THEN THEY MADE HIM KING BRAGGADACIO OF THE BEARDY PEOPLES
I really want the dwarves now trot the big guy off the cliff sounding like ants from those old Tom & Jerry cartoons.
Wow. Are you a wizard?
I like the way they even had time to hand their axes to the single guy on the right before lifting our big guy.
Shouting that battle cry in a Mexican accent makes a lot more sence. A hill on fire is an upsetting sight.
Gulliver’s Travels reference?
The beard braids are also evocative of Gulliver being tied down by his beard.
No, I never read it (there’s probably an movie/TV version too), I just know the general idea – some English guy getting beat up by tiny people. And I think he meets giant people too, but the tiny people (Liliputians?) is the most famous part.
Hmm, that story had Colonialist undertones, didn’t it :/
The giants were the Brobdinangians (I’m guessing on the spelling there). There were several other places as well, but the Lilliputians get all the press. It must be a grassroots movement.
Not particularly. The places he went were less the realms of savage people in need of a civilizing influence, and more a satirical look at the politics of Swift’s native lands. In fact, the Lilliputians specifically represented the British of the time, and made a good deal of mockery of the politics of the time.
He goes to a lot of places in the story, all of which are a satire of some aspect or other of contemporary English society and/or government. Lilliput (tiny people) and its often forgotten neighbor Blefuscu (also tiny people), Brobdingnag (giant people), Laputa (a floating city), Glubbdubdrib (which I never remember), Luggnagg (immortal ever-aging people), and my favorite the Houyhnhnms (horses) and the animal-like Wahoos (who look like humans).
It’s one of those books where the only part commonly known is the very beginning.
I bet Bandit will be hot on their heels for this.
Revenge is sweet. No more Dwarf tossing contests here, no.
And then: *Crunch* the dwarves miscalculated his weight.
In a moment of desperation, Bragg does the only thing he can to save himself.
And all the dwarves promptly suffocated and died.
Then he’d join the party.
Too bad it’s not canon. D:
Why are their Ewoks in my medieval?
This page is highly unrealistic. Those dorfs are standing within throwing distance of that stream. They are at terrible risk of CARP.
This guy is fat we know
So we’ll toss him now like a big fat Sow! Hi Ho! Hi Ho!
Is “remember the battle of the burning heels” like “Remember the Alamo”?
Or is it perhaps more like Guy Fawkes day?
Either way I suppose that the ‘villain’ of the scenario was set afire.
I’m now imaging the Savasi as Texan.
That doesn’t very bloody, for a battle scene …
Speaking of that, it’s typical from those pesky midgets : attacking a small outpost, guarded by what seems to be not even 25 men, and calling it a battle … That’s a skirmish. And it’s a generous call. :-3
That dwarf on the bottom left? Yeah, those are all his.
Hmm, if you take attack penalties for dual wielding, I don’t even want to think about the penalties for septuple wielding.
Fun fact: There is an epic level character in D&D 3.5 that fights with six swords at once and has +20 or higher with all of them.
There’s a scene early in One Piece that deals with this.
