Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is another Knuckleduster figure and my last one, well for now at least anyway. This little chap goes by the name of “Valentine” and is based on the character Liberty Valance played by Lee Marvin in the film “Who Shot Liberty Valance” which also starred John Wayne and James Stewart.
The figure is the 4th of the six figures in the “Bad Guys” faction. I will get around to doing the other two at some point but for now I feel the urge to paint something different.
Well It Made Me Laugh
The Wednesday Whinge
I’m thinking of making this a new feature. Bottled up indoors as we go through probably our longest and most dangerous lockdown in the UK I feel the need to vent my spleen on somethings which make my blood boil. If I don’t get some of them off my chest I will simply explode.
Will you agree with the my rantings? Possibly, possibly not but please bare the following in mind. Firstly, my aim is to get things off of my chest, in other words this is therapy for me and not to be confused with rational behaviour. Secondly, I am always willing to concede to a better argument or explanation as to why I might be wrong in my ranting. Worst case scenario we can agree to disagree. In any event we will kick off next week.
Give Me Five
As we are in Fembruay I thought it only right an proper to consider the best 5 female movie characters having done the chaps a week or so ago. In no particular order my top 5 are:
- Sarah Connor – Linda Hamilton, Terminator franchise
- Ellen Ripley – Sigourney Weaver, Alien franchise
- Clarice Starling – Jodie Foster, Silence of the Lambs
- Hermione Granger – Emma Watson, Harry Potter franchise
- Katniss Everdeen – Jennifer Lawrence, Hunger Games franchise
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Mama Weer All Crazee Now” by Slade. I felt the need for a return to my teens and to clear my head with a good blast of loud music. Classic BBC Top of the Pops recording with no speakers or anything plugged in!
This week TIM has been watching …
“The Serpent” starring Jenna Coleman. Given my on/off love affair with Jenna Coleman (she’s not phoning me again at the moment!) I was always going to give this eight part mini series ago. Based on a true story it is a little creepy at times and you do have to concentrate because it jumps backwards and forwards all over the place. Nevertheless an excellent watch in my opinion
