Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is once again a double bill. As I have mentioned previously, the Baron’s War range of figures is not just about knights but also other members of the rank and file too. In this instance we are talking archers. Not a great deal to say about them. Both nicely cast figures and, given the historical period, not overly complicated in terms of clothing and attire to paint.
One of the things I have enjoyed about buying so many figures up front is being able to vary what I paint. So far I haven’t found myself bored or stuck in a rut and for now at least long may that contnue.
Well It Made Me Laugh
Give Me Five
Sticking with the theme of “cool” from last week I took a look at male musicians who, for me, fall within that genre, needless to say I could have included plenty more. I have no music talents of my own, unless in days gone buy putting an album on the record player counts (confused young people please message me and I’ll expalin), but these are people I would have liked to have been in their heyday and my youth given half a chance. So my top five cool dudes in no particular order are:
- John Lennon
- Bryan Ferry
- Keith Richards
- Marc Bolan
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Sweet Caroline” by Northern Irish footbaall fans.
Now I don’t mention it very often, mainly because this is first and foremost a modelling blog but I am a huge football fan. With the European Champioships on this, along with numerous other video’s, popped up in my feed so I gave it a listen. It did two things for me. Firstly, it reminded me just how much fans are such a huge part of a game and the atmosphere it creates and secondly, just what a buzz it is being part of a large gathering that unites as one. Not everyone’s cup of tea I know but it is so raw and gives me goose bumps
This week TIM has been watching …
“Mare of Easttown” starring Kate Winslet. A seven part series which I binge watched over a couple of evenings. Very watchable with a couple of twists and turns along the way together with some good actng and believable characters.
The annoying thing about house work is just when you’ve finally made the bed and washed the dishes six months goes past and you find yourself having to start all over again!
