Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
TIM’s Mid Week Miniature
This week we have another 28mm figure from Hasslefree Miniatures. This one goes by the name of “Shayda Diovol”.
Now according to IRO, who seems to have gone all lardy-dar, the Fembruary challenge shouldn’t include scantily clad females, however, if you look at the rules set down by Alex no such restrictions apply. Clearly IRO is just sucking up to his female following oblivious of the fact that they have him worked out. Women are not easily fooled.
Now “Shayda” may well be scantily dressed but she is not a girl to be messed with. Never underestimate a woman who has a bigger chopper than you.
Well It Made Me Laugh …
I promised She Who Must Be Obeyed that after Christmas I wouldn’t buy any more figures. She was right to point out that I have a very large pile of forgotten figures and that it was high time I began to do them. But then I remembered that nearly 38 years ago she promised to love, honour and obey me and I realised that my promise was there to be broken just like hers.
With that in mind I went and bought some new figures and earlier this week I took delivery of four figures from Lead Adventure Miniatures, a company based in Germany who I had never used before. They do a very nice Steampunk range and the words “Limited Quantity” were enough to send me into panic mode and place an immediate order. Just as well because two of the figures have now been labled “Sold Out”. Proof indeed that if you see it and want it you should buy it.
Needless to say SWMBO spotted the recent acquisitions and questioned the value of my promise to her. Bravely I argued that she too had made a promise 38 years ago to obey me and had rarely ever done so. It seems when you make a promise with your fingers crossed behind your back it doesn’t count. I need to remember that.
This week TIM has been listening to …
Rod Stewart and “Maggie May”. This is a Top of the Pops mimed version from 1971.
I do like a bit or Rod and he has had his share of classic songs. This track is one of my all time favourite songs. I love the song itself but it holds a great many memories. In our day my mates and I would always look for this record on a pub Juke Box and give it our all after a good few beers!
This week TIM has been watching …
“Spartacus” – the classic 1960’s version starring the late Kirk Douglas. Following his death last week it seemed appropriate to watch this awesome film.
Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, “I’m Spartacus”.
When you get dressed in the morning try to remember that if you die what you are wearing will be your ghost outfit for ever!
Until next time.
