Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is yet another double act. Not sure how much longer I’m going to be able to keep it up for but a change in weather meant outdoor jobs and other life inhibitors were put on the back burner and as such I was able to dedicate more time to painting. As a consequence I decided to press on with getting the two remaining “Foot Sergeants with Hand Weapons” done so I could complete pack 1 and also take a couple of group photos.
The shield design for the first figure is called a “Per Pile” while the design for the second shield is a “Bend”. Nothing difficult but the variety of design will help to make each figure different once the eventual army is all grouped together.
Well It Made Me Laugh
Give Me Five
This week I thought I’d take a look at Gangster Movies. Another genre with plenty to choose from and as a consequence a few good films left out along the way. After some consideration I short listed the following in no particular order.
- The Godfather Trilogy – (OK I know that’s three!)
- The Untouchables
- Miller’s Crossing
- The Long Good Friday
Footnote – of late I’ve started to struggle to keep this article going, time as ever being the biggest problem. If any of you have any thoughts on future topics of any description or genre please feel free to comment below. 🙂
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Freelove Highway” by Ricky Gervais aka David Brent. Can’t believe it was 20 years ago that The Office first aired on the BBC. The series was not everyone’s cup of tea but having worked in an office all my life the level of accuracy and character portayls were simply amazing and so cringe worthy! Loved every minute. Must break out the box set once again!
This week TIM has been watching …
“The White Queen” starring a very hot Rebecca Furguson (Mission Impossible; The Greatest Showman) and Eleanor Tomlinson, the stunning female lead in Poldark. Based on the book by Phillippa Gregory it’s a great drama. I’ve watched the box set a couple of times before and will doubtless watch it again in the future.
