Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks mini is another Hasslefree miniature. This one goes by the name “Shamanic Boudi”.
I apologise for the photo’s. I am far from pleased with them. Done in to much of a rush in order to get this post out. That said I could have taken my time and they probably wouldn’t have been much better! For some reason I just couldn’t seem to get everything in focus as I would like.
I used some Green Stuff World acrylic to create a water effect base and although it looks decent enough looked down upon it looks poor side ways on. This really hasn’t helped with the photo’s at all and something I will take on board when I re-do them and, as and when, I use the stuff again.
Well It Made Me Laugh …
Everything I Touch Turns To Gold!
Have you ever had one of those weeks? No neither have I. In fact this last week pretty much everything I touched turned to shit.
So what went wrong TIM?
Nothing major, just all sorts of small irritating bits, one thing after another, enough to wear you down. My mum always says bad things come in three’s. She’s right, the current count stands at 33.
On the positive front my mood got so bad She Who Must Be Obeyed stopped talking to me. Maybe things are on the up and I’ve turned a corner.
Next week will be better
Thanks to all of you who kindly took the trouble to answer my recent question about Work In Progress posts. The majority it seems like to see the builds as they progress although one or two others prefer the wow factor (always assuming there is one!) of seeing the completed diorama first.
It seems the real challenge is trying to keep each post interesting and, if possible, try to hold something back so that the completed model still comes as a bit of a surprise. Not entirely sure how I am going to manage that but I will give it a good try.
As I mentioned at the time this is all to do with gearing up to start a couple of slightly larger dioramas, something I haven’t done for a while now. Slowly I am getting there in terms of getting the bits I need and hopefully it wont be too long now before things get started. My available time though is also competing with a great many outdoor jobs and a room which She Who Must Be Obeyed (yes she’s still around) keeps on about being decorated. I wouldn’t mind but I told her quite clearly that when I say I will do something I will do it. OK so it was more that four months ago when she first mentioned it but compared to how long her headaches last it’s a drop in the ocean.
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Do The Strand” by Roxy Music. One of my favourite bands and one I don’t listen enough to these days. Still, with the onset of winter and the expectation of wet days for the next 6 months there should be plenty of time to put that right!
This week TIM has been watching …
“Man On A Ledge”. An OK film and nothing more as far as I am concerned. Films which don’t take themselves too seriously, for example Bond movies, can stretch the bounds of reality and I am fine with that but this on was a bit to fanciful for me.
Tequila may not be the answer but it’s worth a shot.
