Yakcomp 36: "And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al"

Make a character (identity crisis optional) and their bodyguard. Anything goes, like a Mercenary Captain and his trusty Ogre, a Void Pirate Captain/Cold Trader and his Quartermaster, Guilder and the unassuming killer in his shadow or a Wizard with an Owlbear companion. Or even a Van Saar gang leader and his favorite meat shield, erhm protégé. Description of their relationship encouraged. They don't have to be called Betty or Al.

Yaks have 6 weeks to create, make and paint their entry, which must use at least 3 colours and be suitably based.

Bonus yak points* will be awarded for a yaktribe member reference
Even more Bonus yak points** for a dark-skinned Mad Donna and a wimpy, male Escher Kevin Costner look-a-like...

The deadline for this comp will be midnight BST on Sunday the 29th November 2020.
Any yak wishing to enter should fill out the following:

I, [insert yak name], will be entering Yakcomp 36: "And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al" with my entry [insert working title], and will keep an updated work in progress here: [insert link to WIP thread].

e.g.
I, @CaptainDangerous, will be entering Yakcomp 36: "And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al" with my entry ‘One man and his troll’, and will keep an updated work in progress here: https://yaktribe.games/community/threads/the-dangerzone.5324/

PRIZE:
The Yak with the most votes will become the new YakComp Champion, Win $15 store credit from the ever generous @Mad Robot! They will also win a rather striking 1st place red banner, AND will have the ultimate power of selecting the theme for the next YakComp!

Good Luck Tribesmen!

Now I just have to figure out what to make. Too bad I’ve already assembled all my slaveogryn, but I do have heaps of spare Goliath, Escher and Orlock to play with.

I just need to figure out who is guarding who and from what?

I read the comp rules here above, but couldn't find anything related to multiple entries.

Are they allowed ?

(I must admit some Yakcomp had me stay blank minded behind my PC and kept me out of it up to now, but this one is open to a lot of crazy ideas, so...)

So I have two options for this company and I’d like some feedback on if either or both would be acceptable for the competition.

1/ a Goliath ganger carrying an Escher ganger away from trouble, ala Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard, but with the Escher ganger shooting two pistols (either both forwards or one forwards and one backwards). If I get the time maybe also have a big monster emerging from a pipe behind them or some smaller zombies approaching them.

2/ two gangers standing back to back with pistols drawn shooting out at what is assumed to be a hoard on incoming enemies. Again if I have time maybe have some other critters trying to close the circle around them.

FAQ #3:
Can I enter more than once?
Yes, of course! But, each entry is treated separately. Example: AndyT81 gets 100points of voting on an awesome entry. djmothra get 99points for Entry 1 and another 99points for Entry 2 - Andy is still the winner.

@almic85
number One sounds like it will be more dynamic, but I love your twist on the theme and think both would work really well!

This sounds awesome. I can picture the scene. How the two started as enemies but the shared experience bonded them and now the goliath won't just leave her to her doom.

I think the only reason no one does it is time constraints ... But I remember it being discussed in a previous comp that they are allowed.

Yes, it's in the general comp rules (as pointed out above). I don't know how often it's been done before, but I did two once* and it was already in the rules before that, so probably someone else had done it before.

*Which meant one of them didn't come last!
