Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is the Baron’s War take on Friar Tuck. I nice little sculpt which will sit alongside Will Scarlet and Little John who I painted a week or so ago. Tuck is sold as a pair with Robin Hood which surprised me as I would have paired Robin with Maid Marion who is sold as a single figure, not that it matters a great deal. All being well I’ll get Robin and Marion painted soon.
Well It Made Me Laugh
The Knights On TIM’s Modelling Table
Outside of my WordPress blog I’m not a great one for social media. The main reason for being anti social on the World Wide Web is mostly an age thing but I’m also aware from what others have posted that various platforms have there pros and cons. The biggest con being that far to many people are incapable of being kind to one another, the complete opposite of our little WordPress gang.
Nevertheless I recently posted a few images of my knights on Facebook having discovered by chance that there is a Baron’s War group. On a number of levels it’s not a patch on WordPress blogging but I have to report that so far it has been a pleasant surprise. Time will tell if I continue to contribute but I must say some of the posts have been very informative and as a further research source it has proven quite useful.
Give Me Five
This week I’ve been pondering unsolved mysteries. In reality there are hundreds to choose from but if I live long enough I’d like to see these five resolved before I expire. Not much chance though! In no particular order:
- UFO’s and Alien life forms, do they exist?
- Who was Jack the Ripper?
- Does the Lochness Monster exist?
- Was there a city of Atlantis?
- Was George Mallory the first man to climb Mount Everest?
This week TIM has been listening to …
“You can Call Me Al” by Paul Simon. I remember when the Graceland album came out. It was very different at the time and was a very popular album and one I played a lot. I’d forgotten just how good it was.
This week TIM has been watching …
“Kill Bill Volume 1” and “Kill Bill Volume 2” starring Uma Thurman. Classic Quentin Tarantino. Totally over the top but fun.
When having sex it is OK to say “Yea”, “Yes” and “Oh Yes” but not “Yep”.
