Last post I alluded to going to the picture show to see Hansel and Gretel, Witch Hunters. Well, I did and it was good. Really, even the boss liked it! Not a movie to take the kids to see, way too gory; but with a tongue in cheek attitude and enough anachronisms in technology to make me smile.
Also screened was Jack, the Giant Slayer which we saw yesterday; we are on a roll as all the silly movies are out. Another good romp, not too far from the story we already know but with a couple of inventive changes.
If you have a child or two under 12 but over six, this would be a good one to take them to see. There is violence, but less graphic, more old movie style.
After the movies, I have done some basic catching up on a few chores but little time for painting. This should change soon, at least I hope. There supposedly will be a few days with daytime highs over 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which will allow me to spray prime for the first time in four months.
On the 'oooh, shiny' front, the Hinterland miniatures line now has crew variations, Empress has some really cool Natal Frontier Horse figures and the Perry's continue to telegraph the next few purchases I'll make as the limbers for the Austrians are announced on their 'metal on the work bench' page.
So much time, but so much more to do! Next 'project' is to get ready for the Snappy Nappy game coming up April 20th at the Time Machine in Manchester, CT. For more details on that, see Peter Anderson's blog at:
