Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This week’s figure is from Footsore Miniatures and goes by the name of “Odin The Allfather”. I chose him as my free figure when I spent over £35.00 on a bundle of knights. The online images for the figure show Odin in a snow setting and as I liked that very much I decided to do the same. Unfortunately the two black crows sitting on his shoulders don’t stand out against the black background but the alternative of a white background would probably not have shown the snow!
Well It Made Me Laugh …
Colour Wheel App
In a recent exchange of comments between myself and Wudugast an interesting point was raised, specifically choosing colour schemes for your next gang or army. Clearly this is not a problem when dealing with historical pieces but when your interest lies in the worlds of fantasy and science fiction and you have already built numerous armies then coming up with something new can be a challenge.
Now I am sure you are all aware of colour wheels and how to use them. I have a basic knowledge but certainly don’t claim to be an expert my any means. However, in an effort to learn more about colours and what best goes with what I found an App titled “Color Harmonizer”. Not only does it give you the appropriate complementary and split complimentary colours but it also gives you the best colour tones for upto four (Square), five and six colour tones too.
Is the App any good? I have no idea just yet as I am currently engulfed in historical pieces just now but I will have a proper look futher down the line. In the meanwhile though I thought I would share this discovery in the hope that it might be of some use. If anyone does elect to download the App I would be interested to know what you think.
The new WordPress editor hasn’t hit me yet. My home screen says I can start using it but as yet I haven’t. From what I gather I will be forced to use it in due course. Not sure when that will be but I guess it wont be long. It is probably an age thing, I don’t take kindly to change these days compared to the younger me.
I think what makes it worse is I don’t like change for the sake of change, I rather like the old adage “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” and as far as I am concerned the current editor works just fine. I just know that once the switch is made it is going to result in a lot of swearing and I really could do without the aggrevation.
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Something Else” by Sid Vicious. A punk take on the Eddie Cochran classic. Not sure about Sid’s pants but each to their own!
This week TIM has been watching…
“Law Abiding Citizen” starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx. An OK movie and quite cleverly done but that’s about as much as I can say for it.
We don’t get smarter as we get older, we just run out of stupid things to do!
