Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is in fact another double act and no prises for guessing they are both Baron’s War figures (are you bored yet?). First up we have a foot Sergeant from the “Foot Sergeants with Hand Weapons Pack 1” followed by a cossbowman from “Crossbowmen Pack 1”. Both nicely composed figures which I’m happy to add the my expanding army. At some point I must do a count up of just how many I’ve now done. Whilst the figure will be encouraging it will still fall well short of even half way. For now though, and with the limited time I have available these days, the figures are filling a need and keeping my painting level up. The summer will come to an end soon enough and then it will be time to mix things up a bit.

One of the things which intreagues me is people’s surnames. My own surname is Green, derived perhaps from a family which once might have resided near the village green. Some surnames recognise trades such as Baker or Butcher while others reflect a family member, for example, Jack’s son giving rise to Jackson. Simple actions and occupations often lead to names which stick and are handed down through the generations. I’m sure you get the idea but some names make me curious. All I’ll say is I’m glad my surname is what it is but what exactly were these people once up to?
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Victim of Love” but Erasure. I seem to have found my self indulging in another decade of late and as such YouTube has throwing some memorable tunes at me of which this is one of my favourites.
This week TIM has been watching …
“Timeline – The Victoria Cross” – Narrated by Jeremy Clarkson. My brother brought this documentary to my attention and I’m glad he did. If you haven’t seen it then it is well worth a watch to learn about some truly remarkable people. Even though Clarkson is like Marmite to some (I like Marmite) don’t let that put you off, his narration is terrific.
There is no better feeling than someone playing with your hair or running their fingers down your back. Unless you thought you were alone.
