TIM’s Miniatures & Musings (No: 136)

Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!


This weeks miniature is another double bill as I’m pulling out the stops to complete my army now, well the foot figures that is.  The remaining mounted knights will be done over time.  Just a few more Baron’s War foot figures to go.  Once done I’ll aim to get them all on the table for a group shot.



Well It Made Me Laugh



Give Me Five

This week I decided to take a look at the films of Al Pacino.  It would have been easy to put the Godfather trilogy in for three of the five but instead I just went with the first one but take it that he is great in them all.  For my five I came up with this list which as usual is in no particular order.

  1. The Godfather (1972)
  2. Scent Of A Women (1992)
  3. Serpico (1973)
  4. Francie And Johnny (1991)
  5. Dog Day Afternoon (1975)


This week TIM has been listening to …

“A Hard Rain’s A – Gonna Fall” by Bryan Ferry.  Roxy Music are one of my very favourite bands and their front man  Ryan Ferry was a cool dude in his day.  He also had a couple of solo albums featuring some of his favourite tracks by other people, in this instance Bob Dylan.  A great track.


This week TIM has been watching …

“The Killer Nanny: Did She Do It?”.  A three part Channel 4 documentary based on the true case of Louise Woodward a British teenage nanny on trial in the USA.  I remember this case which happened 25 years ago but only have a vague memory of the details.  A compelling bit of TV as far as I am concerned and I guess everyone will have a view of whether or not she was or wasn’t guilty.  Not one to sit on the fence all I’ll say is the jury should have been shot for not paying proper attention to some of the details put before them.



Remember …

Don’t take criticism from people you would never go to for advice.

  1. Nice work. For the list of Al Pacino films I would say Heat should be in there as well as maybe Scarface, hard to know what to cut though. As for Bryan Ferry – he is still one of the coolest blokes around – the best of Bryan Ferry and Best of Roxy Music are regular listening for me.

  2. The latest infantry look great and I’m even more excited for the group shot! 🙂 I’m also glad that Godfather III didn’t make it to your list. That movie is a real disappointment after the first two Godfathers which are stone cold classics!
