TIM’s Miniatures & Musings (No: 48)

Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!

—000—

This weeks 28mm figure is from Hasslefree and goes by the name of “Wolsey” and is based on the Scooby Doo cartoon series.  There are two verions of the figure, this is the Apocolypse version and the figure was one sent to me for free on account of the fact that I had placed an order over and above a certain value apparently.  Not a figure I would have chosen to buy but as it turned out it was one I really enjoyed painting.  I may now have to get the other figures which make up this little set.

Coronavirus – Self Isolation Week 7

Day 43 – If this is the apocalypse then I must say I am rather disappointed in it so far.  The current situation is a long way from taking on hordes of zombies with a cricket bat whilst trying to reach the Winchester Arms.

Day 44 – The coronavirus has resulted in being able to claim all manner of refunds for things being cancelled.  With this year rapidly going nowhere I’m wondering if I can get my money back on the 2020 wall planner I bought?

Day 45 – In the “Game of Life: Covid-19” addition we have reached the 1st May or as I prefer to call it Level 5.

Day 46 – Now left to go natural She Who Must Be Obeyed’s hair would be completely grey.  As things currently stand she has adopted the appearance of a rabid badger.  Obviously  I have said to her that she looks fine, I’m not completely mental.  Does make me wonder though how many blonds there will be once we are let lose into the wild again.

Day 47 – Although I am not a gamer I found myself once again thinking about the apocalypse.  Now that we know it wont be played out by bat weilding humans breaking skulls I am curious how the figure designers for future games will depict Covid-19.  Any thoughts?

Day 48 – I’m not much of a Facebook user, more a Facebook stalker.  One thing I have noticed though is how few people have updated their profile pictures.  I assume the inability to update ones wardrobe, acquire cosmetics and complete a make over has had a baring on this.

Day 49 – I’m not sure further proof was required that women can be fickle creatures but today I spent a little time contemplating the hypothetical question “Who do I think is the more desirable women between Jennifer Lawrence and Jenna Coleman?” posed by She Who Must Be Obeyed.  

Without a moments hesitation I said Jenna Coleman (possibly the most beautiful women in the world as far as I am concerned but I wouldn’t say no to Jennifer either).   I then simply asked her what she thought of Micala who lives up the road and all hell broke lose!

This week TIM has been listening to …

“Simply Irresistible” by Robert Palmer.  I love this guy’s music and although I can’t quite work out why I love his video’s too.

This week TIM has been watching…

“The Irishman” starring Robert De Niro et al.  Very disappointing and three hours of my life that I wont get back.

Remember…

If all the psychics you know are either depressed or angry then try and find a happy medium.

  2. Yeah I wasn’t a big fan of the Irishman either. It started out well but then just went on and on and on. Love the mini. I like his stance, that lean forward is kinda quirky. Great work on the paint too. I like how you’ve done his boots. With all the beauty salons closed due to covid-19 it’s getting pretty ugly out there 😉

  3. Interesting figure, and I do like what you have done with it. Who knew that Scooby Doo made the transatlantic trip – let alone inspire a line of post-apocalyptic figures? I particularly like the work on the long face, and the highlighting on the back of the fatigues. It’s these little details that are so fun.

    And I did get a chuckle.

    Man, I love any Robert Palmer stuff. Dead at 54, way too young and oh so cool. I for some reason thought of 54 as an age to make it ppast because then I’d be older than Robert Palmer was. Come to think of it, I had the same thoughts about Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix way back. Now I’m shooting for passing Chuck Berry (or Keith Richards if he makes it past Chuck). 😁

    1. I never really thought about having a style before but I guess I do have one, other painters/modellers too I suppose. Of course we will have to die first but I wonder if one day our stuff will find itself on Ebay as an original “Wudugast” or an “Early TIM”? Sadly we will probably never know.
