Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is another Footsore Baron’s War Foot Sergeant. The shield design goes by the name of “Party Per Chevron”. A neat and simple design but one I rather like. I manged to get the figure started last week and just about found the time to finish it these past couple of days. Little else to add but at least it is one more done and off of the lead pile.
Well It Made Me Laugh
Give Me Five
This weekend just gone we took my daughter off to Oxford for the start of her University experience. She was emotional, not so much for me or She Who Must Be Obeyed, although I’m sure she’ll miss us, but more for her boyfriend who’d previously left a couple of weeks ago to go to Bristol. The joys of young love! Which leads me nicely into this weeks choice, Teen Movies. I think this genre is one of my favourites, so many great films. If I’d known life would be as good as over when I’d reached my twenties I’d have put so much more effort into my teen years. In no particular order:
- The Perks Of Being A Wall Flower (2012)
- Some Kind Of Wonderful (1987)
- Ferris BuellersDay Off (1986)
- The Kissing Booth (2018)
- The Edge Of Seventeen (2016)
Hitting The Wall
I’ve enjoyed my journey thus far with regards to my Footsore Baron’s War project but I’m reaching the point where a brief hiatus is called for. I’ve a pile of other figures I want to paint, a wish to do some basic base work, a need to prepare for the IPMS Nationals and a growing desire to begin work on planning and building a couple of dioramas. Something has to give but I am determined to finish what I started so in the coming weeks expect to see a few figures interspersed with the odd Baron’s War figures for a while.
I thought I’d give a heads up to anyone who might be considering going to Telford this year. The event takes place on the weekend of the 13th and 14th November but as a consequence of Covid some changes to the format have been announced already. I must stress these might be subject to change and up to date information will be on the IPMS website but as things currently stand admission is via advanced ticket sales only unless you are an IPMS Member. ALL attendees are required to provide evidence of double Covid vaccinations too. Feel free to contact me for further information but as I say the website is the go to place for full details.
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Smoke On The Water” by Deep Purple. I thought I would take a dip into the past and have a blast!
This week TIM has been watching …
“Let Him Go” starring Kevin Costner. I think it is fair to say that I have enjoyed most of Costner’s films. I hadn’t heard of this one though, probably because it came out it 2020 and passed under the radar due to Covid and lockdown perhaps. In any event it turned out to be a good watch and a little different too.
Pleasing everyone is impossible but pissing them all off is a piece of cake.
