Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks figure is from Hasslefree and goes by the name of “Joanne”. Clearly she is a woman with an attitude but if I found myself in trouble I would prefer her on my side. I went with a Union Jack freehand flag on her T-Shirt and an Anarchy symbol on the back of her waistcoat just to add some more interest.
Well It Made Me Laugh …
At some point in the distant past I considered doing a model tank. I think at the time I was painting some figures based on the film Kelly’s Heroes and fancied the idea of a Sherman tank to accompany the figure of Oddball, the charachter played by Donald Sutherland. In searching for a suitable manufacturer of model tanks I came across the site Blitzkrieg Miniatures.
Whilst the figures got finished I never did get around to purchasing the tank. Maybe one day I will but with so much in my to do pile and so many other things on my “essential, must have, purchase now before they all get sold out, shrewd investment for the future list” I can’t see that being any time soon.
Just over a week ago it was my birthday, my third time of being 21 and my first in a Covid-19 woŕld. Under normal circumstances I would have been taken out for a meal and a few drinks. Presents typically would comprise of some items of clothing, a DVD or two and something pointless that I just don’t need in this world or the next.
This year though things were different. Wisely putting health and safety first I was the recipient of nothing but a few cards and some money and offered the line “We didn’t think it was safe to go out to eat and we didn’t know what to buy you as you have everything already don’t you?”.
Actually as it happens I don’t have everything I want but as luck would have it I’ve got this bloody great “essential, must have, purchase now before they all get sold out, shrewd investment for the future list” to spend the money on.
This week TIM has been listening to …
MC Hammer and “U Can’t Touch This”. I’m not abig fan of rap music but this is one of a very few commercial tracks that I quite like.
This week TIM has been watching…
“The Cry” starring Genna Coleman. As Genna is is the girl of my dreams I couldn’t resist watching this when I discovered it on BBC iPlayer. Set in the UK and Australia it turned out to be an excellent 4 part series.
Don’t buy pre-shredded cheese, lets make Britain grate again.
