Competition Sculpt


A whole month?!

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.I know... it's been a month but I have not really been getting up to much that is worthy of comment... so I thought I'd wait until something came up.A date has been set for my head/beard shaving, charity event... the first of October. As soon as I have a funding page up and running, I will post it up but in the meantime...Click the Pic!I have booked some holiday time so at the end of this month, I have two weeks off. That means I will have time to do some things... like get new glasses, see the doctor about my anaemia, get my bike serviced, see my son and maybe even chill out for a few minutes!Life has been pretty regular... still working and enjoying it, still loving Cornwall and still enjoying time with my wife and all the cats that seem to be arriving.On to hobby stuff and I did okay in the sculpting competition. I got 4th for the trooper and 7th for the Sgt:Click the Pic!There were 13 entries and some were by professional sculptors so I don't thing I did badly. It s

More Sculpting.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.This week has been a good one. Work has been great, sometimes challenging, but definitely a case of when the going gets tough, the team pulls together... and team-work, makes the dream work!Speaking of team-work, last night a large clump of my work mates gathered in my local last night and we all had a blast together. I got to introduce my wife to my friends and even threw a few shapes on the dance floor... a cracking night was had by all!I have had my son and his girlfriend visiting this week as well and we have been enjoying a few quality days together. He is in good spirits and it is always nice to see him.I have had notification that a Kickstarter pledge is in the delivery pipeline so it looks like I'll be getting some troops to chop up pretty soon. Which ones? These ones:Kickstarter LinkI have pledged for the Northmen and will have about 42 infantry to turn into men-at-arms for my Primaris Knights:Click the Pic!There will be lots more information, once I have recie

Ogryn

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.After last week's post, I have stuck to my guns and have not added anything new to my army list. In fact, after receiving my Ogryn miniatures from Mad Robot Miniatures (in the USA), I decided to just have three Ogryn for now because it would take quite a lot of conversion work to change the second set of three into individuals, rather than a repetition of the first three.With the Ogryn in mind, I unpacked them and quickly decided that they needed widening and their heads being lower down. As they are, they look like large scale humans and I wanted them to be a bit more Ogre like... not too much... but a bit... so I added a small disk of plastic in between the arm/shoulder and filled in the area to make a tidy join. I also trimmed the neck away from the heads and then pinned them in place before filling in the gaps again. This resulted in a nice little unit of three Ogryn:Click the Pic!I am really happy with the way two of them turned out but the third one (on the right)

A bit up and down, this week.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World.This week has been a bit all over the place.I have been going to work as usual and have had a really good bunch of shifts; as a result of some good team work. When I have not been at work I have been clearing the garden and on one occasion, while ripping out some rotten wood, I found a very cool toad (which I evacuated to a safe area). I still have a bit of a way to go but the garden is certainly getting there.Tuesday was a sad day. We had our lovely old cat, Fred (AKA Bouff and the Bear) put to sleep. He was fourteen years old and had been living with arthritis for a good few years (he was on medication for it) but over the last year, had developed some nasty growths in his neck and throat. We kept him going for as long as we could but he had just had enough so he was peacefully put to sleep on Tuesday.Click the Pic!Rest in peace, Fred.On Thursday, I went to give blood but have been told I can't donate for a year because I am anaemic. That came as a bit of a shock but it cou

Sculpting and stuff.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World.Over the last couple of weeks I have been working, clearing the garden and getting a bit of hobby stuff done... and I've also had to put up with a cold and a continuing lack of sleep.Work has been good. I am now officially part of the furniture and this has been proven by bumping into workmates when I am not at work and socialising with them... so there's that.When not at work, and when the weather has let me, I have been clearing the old fence from the garden. I have a way to go but this sort of thing takes time.The cats are on our minds at the moment. Charmmy is fine, Alfie has had his two lots of jabs and is waiting until it is time for his neutering operation. Sam is still not right. He will be going back to the vets at some point soon and they'll need to look at his tail/lower back... when he's on anti-inflamatories, he is less stiff but you can see he is still not happy. Fred is very much on his last legs and we have been in touch with the vets to discus his humane depa
