Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature isn’t. Well it is but it’s actually four figures with an added bonus. This week I managed to churn out four Footsore Baron’s War Levy’s and, as well as taking a couple of photo’s of each, I also managed a group shot of the four of them. In fairness these figures were, in contrast to just about everything else I’ve done to date on this project, quick and easy.
So what of the added bonus? Well, not quite what I had intended but conscious of the fact that I needed to do something, I took a group shot of the seven mounted knights I have completed and another one of the foot knights and sergeants too. I’ve still to work out any form of base that works for me and of course I haven’t included a photo yet of the spearmen, archers, crossbowmen and levy’s. Hopefully this is something I will eventually put right but for now it provides an indication of the progress I have made to date on part of the project.
Well It Made Me Laugh

I never appreciated just how big the “Biopic” film category was. As far as genre’s go this one is one of my favorites, I do like a good true story (even a Hollywood interpreted one). This time around I’ve placed no parameters on the genre but as and when I revisit it I will look to break the category down. In the meanwhile five films, in no particular order, which I have watched more than once and will doubtless watch again.
- Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
- Schindler’s List (1993)
- The Social Network (2010)
- Philomena (2013)
- Into the Wild (2007)
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Fake I.D.” by Big and Rich Featuring Gretchen Wilson. I have to say I enjoyed the Footloose remake and this particular track, not least of all because it featured Julianne Hough, a very hot young lady who is on my hit list of potential wife replacements.
This week TIM has been watching …
“The Green Book” starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, neither of whom I’d ever heard of before. The film won Best Picture at the 2018 Oscars although I confess to knowing little if anything about it until I watched it. Turned out to be a good film and one which was based on a true story. Well worth a watch if you haven’t seen it already I’d say.
To err is human but to blame it on someone else shows management potential.
