Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is not one but two figures again. As planned I manged to complete the two remaining figures which comprise Spearman Pack No: 1 of the Footsore Baron’s War range. As well as images of the two figures I’ve also added a group shot of the four. As facial expressions go l think the sculpt for the first little chap is spot on for the pose.
Still plenty more to paint and I’m growing conscious of the need for some sort of group shot of those I’ve painted to date. I’ve still not got my head around how to do this. Ideally I’d like to do some sort of base but right now I don’t want to take my eye off of painting so I might just have to go with a green table cloth if SWMBO has one I can use without moaning!
Well It Made Me Laugh
Give Me Five
This week I decided to focus on Super Hero films. The problem with this genre is there are several films involving the same super hero and various remakes which take advantage of better special effects. I decided to simply base my top 5 on those films I enjoyed the most. Clearly I haven’t enjoyed much since 2010! In no particular order:
- Superman (1978)
- Batman (1989)
- Kick-Ass (2010)
- The Dark Knight (2008)
- Spiderman (2002)
Last Monday I attended my first model club meeting in over 18 months. It was good to meet up with some familiar faces and enjoy some nerdy conversation for an hour and a half. It will take a while for somethings to return to normal, particularly with regard to attending and participating in shows. Although restrictions have been greatly relaxed in the UK it takes a good while for such events to be organised and arranged. That said the calendar does now have a couple of events on it and fingers are crossed that this November will see the return of Telford in particular.
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard. Thought I’d go for this remix version, something about it caught my eye. 😉
This week TIM has been watching …
“Vanilla Sky” starring Tom Cruise. I like Tom Cruise (we could be twins) and thought I’d seen just about all of his films but this one l never managed to get around to watching for whatever reason. Truth be told I wish I hadn’t bothered. Great cast but far to confusing for this old brain of mine. With hindsight I should have seen it 20 years ago, then I might have made a lot more sense of it.
It’s only appropriate to say “My, aren’t you big?” to children, adults tend to get offended.
