Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature is another Footsore Baron’s War double bill. I’m still doing my level best to focus on the foot figures which need to be completed and managed to get the Maid Marion figure, which I had forgotten about, along with another crossbow man done. Both help to swell the ranks and take me a step closer to completing the outstanding foot figures which I still have to do.
Well It Made Me Laugh
It suddenly hit me that I have just over a week to get ready for Telford. There are only three of us from the Plymouth Model Club going up for the weekend and with 12 feet of display space between us there is a lot to take. Just how much painting I get done this week therefore remains to be seen. I suspect it won’t be much but if I can I might try to get a couple of quick things done for future posts because I won’t have much time in the week I get back either.
I’ve no idea what the Internet access is like at the show but maybe, just maybe I might be able to put out a post while I’m up there. We will see.
Give Me Five
This week I thought I’d take a look at films starring Tom Cruise and came up with this list as my top five. It was tougher than I thought because I love pretty much all of Tom’s films so to make things a little easier I left out the Mission Impossible films as I will deal with movie franchises as a seperate subject going forward. I was still left with a tough choice though and some great films have been left out. In no particular order I came up with the following:
- Top Gun (1986)
- Risky Business (1983)
- Rain Man (1988)
- A Few Good Men (1992)
- Far and Away (1992)
This week TIM has been listening to …
“River Deep, Mountain High” by Tina Turner. I do love Tina Turner, in fact I’m a big fan of singers who can really belt out a bloody good song. This is very much an oldie but still a big favorite of mine.
This week TIM has been watching …
“The Great Outdoors” starring Dan Aykroyd and the late John Candy. This film came out in 1988 but still makes me laugh every time I watch it. Some great moments and well worth a watch if you have never seen it. I still fancy having a go at an old 96’er steak!
If Covid restrictions prevent you from going on holiday just drink until you don’t know where you are.
