'L'amour' from GregB - 'It All Depends On The Caption'

"I've found a solution for the local teenagers, love..."
In past Challenges I have mostly ignored the bonus theme rounds.  So far this year, I've stuck with it, but this one was difficult.  Couldn't really find anything too creative, or more challenging, the time to do much that was creative.  But I did find these two Wargames Foundry sculpts from their "Darkest Africa" range.  How can it be love - "l'amour"? Well, from my point of view, it all depends on the photo caption...

"THAT is an indecent proposal..."
"I repeat, sir, that I'm NOT interested..."
"I do so enjoy sport hunting Madhists on the Khartoum battlements dear.  The blue Nile is lovely at this time of year..."
You see? With photo captions, you can just do whatever you want.  Here are a couple more photos of the figures in question - I believe the lady with the double-barrelled gun is "Mrs. Capstone", and the chap is "Mr. Poirot" - both 28mm sculpts from Wargames Foundry.

In addition to garnering whatever points I can scrape in this bonus round, I can see these figures playing a part in a pulp game, or even interesting characters in a Sudan game (or other colonial-themed table adventure). 

Not much more to say, other than happy Valentines everyone!
