Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is Robin Hood. Last week I painted Friar Tuck who is paired with Robin as a pack of two figures in the Baron’s War range and this week I manged to get the prince of thieves himself done. Images of the iconic rogue below along with a couple of him together with his religious side kick.
Well It Made Me Laugh
Well my little ninja turtles I discovered three websites a few weeks ago which I thought I would share with you. All are very much geared to basing, specifically in respect of flora and fauna and although they may not be new to you they are to me.
Tajima1 is based in Cornwall, not a million miles away from me, and a small order I placed arrived very quickly and the quality of the items I bought was excellent. They don’t have a huge range of items compared to the other two sites but still we’ll worth checking out in my opinion. I’m sure I will be buying from them again.
I also bought a couple of items from Model Scenery Supplies. They are a railway accessories stockist but OO gauge is more than good enough for 28mm. In their blurb they rated MP Products as the dogs bollocks so I targeted a couple of those items and was again most impressed with the quality.
Finally I came across an Italian company, Diorama Presepe, who I have yet to buy anything from. Their range is very impressive and they have some great looking stuff. I will all most certainly be making some purchase once I have trawled the site and decided on what I want to buy.
Give Me Five
This week I thought I’d take a look at badass females. Now whilst I wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of any of these young women I’d be more than happy to be dominated by Jennifer Lawrence and/or Scarlett Johansson! In no particular order my top 5 female characters not to mess with are:
- Ellen Ripley – Alien (Sigourney Weaver)
- Hit Girl – Kickass (Chloe Grace Moretz)
- Katniss Everdeen – The Hunger Games (Jeniffer Lawrence)
- Sarah Connor – The Terminator (Linda Hamilton)
- Black Widow – The Avengers (Scarlett Johansson)
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Lying Eyes” by the The Eagles. I was in an easy going mood for a change this week which is another way of saying I couldn’t be arsed to do much. There is no better music to listen to when in that sort of mood than The Eagles. If I wasn’t horizontal before I put the music on I was afterwards. I should also add what a cool album cover this is too.
This week TIM has been watching …
“Snatch” starring Brad Pitt and Jason Statham amount others. For some reason this film passed me by but my brother reminded me of it so I finally managed to sit down and watch it.
A most enjoyable couple of hours I must say.
No matter how bad things get don’t let gravity get you down.
