Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This weeks miniature goes by the name “Turanil” and according to Reaper he is an Elf Paladin. It is a two piece model, the shield being separate. A lovely lot of detail to pick out made this one a pleasure to paint.
Well It Made Me Laugh …
I belong to what I suspect is a rare breed of people. Each month I reconcile my bank and credit card statements. I have been doing so ever since I started work. I didn’t earn a lot of money back then and the idea of running up debt, spending what I didn’t have, was a concern to me. These days some people do not seem to care about such things but each to their own.
So why mention this? Well only because I couldn’t believe how much I had spent on modelling bits and bobs in the last month. Self isolation has been the biggest driver of course but the money is there to pay for it so all in all it’s no big deal. I say it’s no big deal but She Who Must Be Obeyed would doubtless make it one if she knew. Which of course is another reason why I reconcile the statements. If I didn’t she would!
You may recall I recently posted a review on Dixon’s Miniatures, one of my favourite online stores. Now I am pretty sure I am not alone in having preferred suppliers but once upon a time they all began life as sites I simply found from surfing the net. Typically any site I think might be of interest, either now or at some point in the future, I bookmark as and when I find them. The reality is I have rarely, if ever, bought anything from most of these sites. That’s not to say they are no good, it’s more likely that I have forgotten them or what I found that interested me no longer does.
The thing is these sites don’t justify a review in their own right, not by me at least, but they may hold an interest for others and therefore could be worthy of sharing. Some of them you may already be familiar with, others you may not. In any event as I trawl through my bookmarks I have decided to share some of them with you through my weekly musings. I may start next week.
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Angels” – A live version (after a brief intro) performed in front of an amazing Wembley crowd at a Taylor Swift concert at which Robbie made a surprise (I expect Taylor knew he was going to be there) guest appearance.
This week TIM has been watching…
Ricky Gervais in “Extras” – Series 1 and 2.
It seems to me that you either love or hate Ricky Gervais, rather like Marmite (Vegemite). Personally I love him. For me he is the best in his business by a country mile. Whether we are talking sitcom’s, stand-up or award ceremonies this guy is the dogs bollocks as far as I am concerned. He says it the way it is and no subject is out of bounds. I do get why peolple don’t like him and why he divides opinion, She Who Must Be Obeyed for example can’t stand him (but what does she know?).
If your wife asks you to whisper dirty things in her ear it’s best not to use words like kitchen or bathroom!
