Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is the second one I have done from the Knuckleduster Bad Guys Faction which goes by the rather odd name of “Blue Duck”. Of the six figures in the faction this one is probably my least favourite.
Well It Made Me Laugh
Some habits are hard to break and gripping figures to tightly when I am painting them is something I am finding impossible not to do. Unfortunately it is now becoming a physical problem in my left hand. For a while now I have started to find if I paint for too long my hand cramps badly and I can’t continue.
Unable to break the habit, something I have been trying to do for some time now, I have started to set the alarm on my phone to remind me to take a break after a certain amount of time. So far, so good but the up shot is I have found myself painting less. In itself that’s not a problem, in fact longer term it will help me with my ever growing storage issue. The concern I do have is more with the blog.
Whether or not I can produce a figure for Wednesday’s and Saturday’s might become an issue. I will continue as I am but if I have a bad week, and if things continue then I can see that happening from time to time, I might have to substitute a newly painted Miniature & Musings figure for one done some time ago adopting my Memory Monday concept.
Time will tell.
Give Me Five
This week I thought I would consider my top 5 male film characters excluding Science Fiction and Fantasy as I will deal with the likes of them another time. In no particular order I came up with the following:
- James Bond – Various Actors but Daniel Craig is the best for me
- Vito Carleone – Marlon Brando, The Godfather
- Indiana Jones – Harrison Ford
- Hannibal Lecter – Anthony Hopkins, Silence of the Lambs
- Harry Callahan – Clint Eastwood and the Dirty Harry series
This week TIM has been listening to …
“One Step Beyond” by Madness. I do like Madness, they’ve produced some fun music and this particular track is one of my favourites.
This week TIM has been watching …
“Planes, Trains and Automobiles” starring Steve Martin and John Candy. John Hughes directed some great films and this one was one of the best. Certain scenes still makes me cringe.
