Authenticity in politics

These days, the quality that people want more then anything else is authenticity. In film, in literature or in food. Imperfections are embraced and the mass produced, packaged and processed are dismissed.

Is the same thing happening in politics?

Anyone who was wishing on a star for a non-miniatures post is about to regret that.

Malifaux: Crossroads Seven

So; I got the band painted. I don't normally do large group shots because they rarely turn out well, but I thought I would have a go.

Crossroads Seven
 I enjoyed painting most of these guys, they are very nice models. One of the nice things about Malifaux is that you are usually painting single miniatures, rather then trying to paint a squad. Which, I think is why I am able to paint them more often that I can manage to paint 40k. Also unlike 40k, almost every model in Malifaux feels significant. It's hard to really get into painting Tactical Marine with bolter #12.

Malifaux: Titania

So I decided to finish off my early GenCon loot. Titania and box.

Malifaux: Loose Ends

I had to go back to work yesterday for the first of two non-pupil days at work, which obviously means I have come home and painted more 'faux. I'm something of a boulder, in that if I am made to start doing stuff I feel like doing more stuff. Whereas for most of the summer holidays I was content to sit and look out the window. It's funny because you come back after the Summer break and colleagues tell you about all the far flung places they have been, and all I can think is "my word that sounds exhausting". However, I assume you come here to look at painted miniatures, not to learn about my infinite capacity for doing nothing.

So, I had a little backlog of miniatures which don't really fit in any big group. First up is the spawn mother and gupps.
