AGW: The Deniersplits Song

One Denier, two Denier, three Denier, four.
Four Deniers are so dumb and so are many more.
Over blog and Op-Ed the Denier browsers go.
Never on the science ‘cos they don’t really wanna know.

(CHORUS):
Makin’ up a mess of science,
pukin’ up a mess of FUD
Lots of FUD for everyone
Troll la la, la la la la
Troll la la, la la la la
Troll la la, la la la la
Troll la la, la la la la

Four Denier, three Denier, two Denier, one.
All Deniers JAQing off in the bright warm sun.
Flippin’ like a pancake, popping like a cork.
Goddard, Watts an’ Booker how low can they all go ?

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Two Denier, four Denier, one Denier, three.
Swingin’ like a bunch of monkeys, throwing shit from a tree.
Hey there, ev’rybody, won’t you come along and see.
How much the Denier shills can lie.

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Mordheim: Spring Cleaning

Some more Mordheim buildings spring cleaned (ish)…these are from the main boxed set now OOP. I first built and based these more than 14 years ago.

I’d built the basics, based them and added some clay (or Das Pronto), sand, a few snips of balsa wood and an old Citadel plastic skelton horse for some features. Oh and the obligatory card flagstones.

Nothing wrong with it, but it just looked a bit sad and flat.

Another building, with the same basing and painting, though this was my second set, and I’d added the chimmney piece to this building.

So the spring clean involved the usual washes and highlighting I’ve been doing on other buildings.

This gives it a much better depth of colours.

The washes seem to have a weird opauqeness to them, but on this scale makes it much more like the watery puddles in the ruins I wanted to make. (You can see the white-ish patches)

BoB: Bolshevik Artillery & Support

Another week of seemingly meagre pickings, sorry ! Here’s the first of several updates that I have been working on in between community meetings, funerals and other stuff:

Copplestone Bolshevik field artillery. As per previous comments, I have replaced the commander figure with one from the Bolshevik Heroines pack to make it a bit different.

medic and Ammo carrier from Musketeer, now Footsore Miniatures WW1 Russians packs. Though slightly smaller and not as beefy as the Copplestone stuff these figures fit in nicely and help expand the range of poses on offer.

How not to file things

Well I was hoping to:

  • have a games session;
  • finish off the Chinese Warlord Cavalry;
  • photograph the Bolshevik cavalry.

Unfortunately, having offered our ex-Parish Clerk an excursion to the County Court, I instead spent most of yesterday and all of today going through the paperwork he dumped in a bin:

Yes, two green recycling sacks in a recycling bin.

Cat’s tail and bottom for scale purposes only.

The contents of this bag and the other filled 3 lever arch files, and if that wasn’t enough I had to crreate an inventory of everything so that the temporary and new Parish Clerks know what they are getting.

As commented to my father, this level of filing should be achieved by vacation students aged 18+, and are indiciative that our former Clerk failed to satisfy the most basic requirements of his job for over a decade.

My time spent doing all this filing did at least aloow the glue and paint on some of the Bolshevik models to dry/set.

Rant over !
