Kick Starter


Tanks for the memories...

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.Over the last couple of weeks, I have mostly been absolutely shattered... so things have happened in fits and starts.Work has been very good and I am still loving it. A few changes have happened but the team is pulling together and making everything tick along nicely so Kudos to everyone there.From a charity perspective, I have been very humbled by the massive support I have received from my work mates and visitors, for my "Boldly Goes" event. I have collected over £150 in sponsorship pledges so far and that will go very nicely towards my goal of buying a new 'Flexi Porter' chair for my care home. I have also been invited to carry out the little shaving event at my local pub "The Rodney Inn", in Helston so that's where it will happen and many thanks to Terry and Emma for that wonderful gesture.As for the on-line fund-raiser, I could do with a bit more support so if you are able to, please see if you can add some funds here:Steve Boldly Goes LINKIn other charity news, I

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

Woooosh!

Hello again! Is it Sunday already?! Welcome to Inso's World again.This week has been mostly about work... lots of it. That means that I haven't had a huge amount of time for very much else. It also means that when I did have time, I wasn't really in the mood for hobby stuff... so not a lot has been achieved.I must admit that it has been nice having a couple of days off, with my wife. We have spent some quality time in each other's company so it has made up for me not having a Christmas holiday a bit.Work is still great... although the 'politics' can be a little jarring. I am loving the work though... so that is where my focus is going.So... all the hobby:Click the Pic!This represents all my hobby time this week. The whole bike squad is now converted and the bikes are all in the process of paint. One is more or less finished, the other five need the green tidying up before a wash with Agrax Earthshade and then highlighting etc.In other hobby news, I have received my Onna-bugeisha Kick-starter from Bad Squiddo

Grinding advance.

Hello again and welcome to Inso's World.What have I been doing this week? Painting a tank. Sadly, I haven't been able to get as far as I would like because I have had work and family distractions... plus a strained back... that has meant that my hobby time has been restricted. As it stands, I have a painted tank with a WIP tank commander and the model will be finished by next weekend... here's some paint:Click the Pic!The fully painted and assembled tank:Click the Pic!This image shows the base-coated and washed tank commander. She is ready for the highlight stage which will probably start tomorrow because I have to go to work very soon:Click the Pic!It has been a nice change to work on this tank... but I still don't enjoy the stippling part of the painting process... however, it does create the effect I am looking for so I guess it's just something I have to put up with.What happens when this is finished? I'm in two minds. I'd like to get more APCs converted and painted but I have a few distractions that are

Back to work!

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.It's a gloriously sunny day and I've been removing the remains of the fence in the garden. It was a victim of the recent storm and needed to be removed after some of it was blown down... that led to removing a 'seat' made of cement blocks and some slabs; which were obviously built by someone who never played with Lego as a child... I'll leave the sweep-up for another day.Anyway, I digress.This week has been one of training and pottering about. It is just like being back in the RAF... sitting through induction training. Mind you, I am getting to learn and use the new equipment that is required for my new job so it is most certainly worth while and is fairly enjoyable.This coming week, I have more training and some proper work shifts... obviously with maximum supervision but at least I will be able to start working properly, rather than being limited to what I can do.As a result of some of the more 'interesting' challenges I am expecting to face, I am also required to tak
