Thursday Minion

And so it begins, 
Curt asked me to join the ranks of the minions and although I've been occupied with moving, training, school athletics with the children, the holidays, AND my own wish list of AHPC possible submissions...
I of course said yes! 
I've been looking forward to the challenge all year and have a large tote filled with prepped models awaiting a brush. Since we've moving into a new home, I've even rescued my massive drafting table from it's former spot in an unheated garage to a now climate controlled basement where it is now groaning under the weight of the first wave of my own possible entries as well has hurriedly assembled holiday gifts and butterflies that need a quick airbrush prime.

I really should just focus on one thing at a time!
Yet today is not about me, but about the stalwart guinea pigs  er, participants that have been enslaved. . (Strike that) assigned to Thursday.
I have been given access to an infernal spreadsheet of dubious nature that I am told will allow me to calculate the entries.
I'm a little foggy on the whole sacrifice part, but perhaps a yard bird from KFC or Popeyes will suffice.
I have also taken advantage of the blogger schedule to preload this as I have last minute training scheduled for Thursday.
I'm not a desk jockey sort, so I will be off running, exerting, and visiting ranges like a proper eyeball thumper. 
Since this is for my civilian job and not the military ( that will be this weekend) I should have periodic downtime to enjoy coffee and wifi. I will also be home well before supper, so any issues can be resolved easier then.

Note: Any complaints about the service will be given a force slam or cake....that will entirely be dependent upon the quality and quantity of my coffee supply.   ;)

Now get those brushes to work!

  1. Welcome to the ranks of miniondom David! :)

    As for the rituals required to make the infernal spreadsheet work for you, my own experience showed that the copious consumption of 12 yo single malt whisky, preferably a Skye or Islay, was the most important part and you can't skimp on that :)

    1. Great advice on the scotch Tamsin, just have to get your regions right, tasting peat and dirt ain't fun..... Go with Speyside! (And let the scotch arguement begin!)

    2. Admittedly the Glens do have their charms, but you can't beat Talisker :)

    3. But I LOVE peat and dirt in my scotch! It could only be made better with a bit of dung from an Aberdeen Angus and a few drops of blood from a McDonald. ;)

    6. Whiskey is a grand notion! I have a bottle of Jameson lurking somewhere, I hope it is NOT still in a moving box! ;)
      There is also the back up of Guiness or Founder's "Ole Dirty Bastard" a thick stout drawn from aged whiskey barrels! ;)

  3. Love the picture of your painting table - I paint on the dinning table so have to pack away paints to make way for dinner.

    Cheers Jez Todd

    1. At our old home I had a smaller table in the living room. In this new house, my wife has decreed no miniatures or paint allowed in the upstairs.
      A strange quirk has banished me into a mancave, I have no idea how the stars aligned, perhaps I shouldn't pry too closely!
      My Gym and Game room are also in other basement rooms....I have a Lair! ;)

  4. Love that painting table photo! Just remember: focus is for the weak...
