TIM’s Miniatures & Musings (No: 57)

Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!


This week we have a Hasslefree figure which goes by the name of “Earl”.  Along with some other figures he was bought to be part of a diorama idea that I had.  Unfortunatley as sometimes happens I lost interest in the diroama but not the individual figures themselves.  If the diorama idea ever gets back on track then I will have to buy the figures again.

Well It Made Me Laugh …



Interesting Site?

It was at Salute 2019 that I first came across the figures which feature on the Discworld site.  I had heard of the author, the late Terry Pratchett, but had never read any of his stuff and was therefore unfamiliar with the charachters of his books, I still am.  Nevertheless the figures caught my eye, specifically the three witches.  The figures don’t come cheap but they do look very interesting.  Looking at the site again I think a purchase will be on the cards at some point!


This week TIM has been listening to …

“Summer of ’69” by Bryan Adams.  As the UK hits the summer, time for a classic track.


This week TIM has been watching…

“Lawrence Of Arabia” starring Peter O’Toole and directed by David Lean.  Having just splashed out and bought a new TV and sound system I felt the need to check it out by watching a classic movie.  They don’t come much better than this one.




If you swerve to miss a tree only to realize it was your air-freshner then you were probably to drunk to drive!

  1. Earl is cool. I think he is a character from a zombie video game. I hope you get your diorama mojo back soon matey. Do you remember the TV series called George and Mildred? Brilliant. Lawrence of Arabia is great. Maybe you could do a diorama inspired by that.

    1. It’ll come back IRO but I’m more than happy just figure painting for now. Yes I remember that series and very good it was too. I did do a little dessert diorama a year or so ago with Loz in it on a camel. Maybe I will do another one day but getting the figures was a problem last time as I recall.

  2. IRO is right – the figure is based off Louis from Left4Dead. I really like how you’ve painted hium,. especially the stubble on his chin and his bald head as well.
    And ouch on Mildred there – that’s ice cold!

  3. love the colour used for this guy, looks really good. Absolute classic film, not seen it for ages, better than the rubbish they do today. Just humming summer of 69 as i watch it rain through the window, yes we had summers then, stay safe and wait for the second spike..

  4. Truly an enjoyable mini – as others have said the soft cloth is so well done on the shirt. And stubble on dark skin – brilliant!

    Nice hat joke – will steal for the golf course.

    My wife (way back in the eighties before she met me) went to a Bryan Adams concert in Worcester and was brought up on stage with several other young ladies by Bryan and given a rose. She got to watch the whole concert from the side of the stage. Of course, I do kid her now about her near-groupie experience (she passed on going backstage). Between that and the fact that she used to date a Chippendale, I have plenty of fodder!

  5. What genre is Earl from? He looks like he was maybe designed to be a zombie survivor but I think he could make a decent henchmen in a James Bond or Mission impossible movie. Either way, I like the sculpt and the expression on Earl’s face is very striking. Makes you wonder what he has seen or done recently!

    1. Earl is classified by Hasslefree as a “Modern Adventurer” so he would fit nicley with all your suggested scenarios. Hasslefree do some fantastic figures, pending what you are intertsted in of course, and are well worth checking out in my opnion.
