|A sultry Vampirella by Joe Jusko|
I am sure there are two questions you'd like answering and the first and most important one will no doubt be, when can we see it? The answer to that is very soon. I'll be photographing it later on today. So, I'll probably post part one of my review this Sunday. Given that it is such a large building I will have to split my review into two parts. The review will be very heavy on photos and it just makes sense to split the review into two posts.I imagine that part one will cover the exterior plus the interiors of the upper two floors. Part two will cover the interior of the ground floor.
The second question I'm envisaging is, what are you going to make next? That's fairly easy. I've started work on making four WWG police patrol cars. I don't have any and now that I have the police station I want some patrol cars to go with it. After I've made them I shall make another building, but at this moment I don't know what exactly. I have so many to choose from. I want to make them all but I can only make one at a time. I do have a shortlist of what I'd like to make and I'll probably make a decision in the next few days.
This figure that you see to the right of here and further down is my Horrorclix SWAT Trooper that I recently converted. He first appeared in my review of the RAFM SWAT Troopers that I posted a week ago. I cut off his rocket launcher and replaced it with a Foundry 9mm Heckler and Koch MP5A Sub-Machine Gun. It was a simple conversion, because being made of plastic made the removal of his original weapon very easy. I wish all conversions were this easy.
Moving on to other news now, I am currently reading Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris. This is the 12th volume of the Sookie Stackhouse series - the books that the TV series, True Blood, is based on. I finished reading two zombie books earlier this month - Zombies - a Record of the Year of Infection by Dr. Robert Twombly and Can You Survive a Zombie Apocalypse? by Max Brallier. Both were good reads and I may do a full review of them soon.
Whilst I am on the subject of books, I'd like to tell you that when I reviewed Domain of the Dead and Remains of the Dead by Iain McKinnon a couple of weeks ago, I received a number of comments from the author, which I must admit did surprise me, as my review was far from complimentary. Still, fair play to Iain, he was very kind and courteous and we struck up a converstion that went on longer than I could have imagined. I mention this because his comments appeared a good while after I had posted my review, meaning hardly anyone will have read them. So, if you want to see our chat just go back to my review of his books and click on "comments." Anyone who collects e-books will be particularly interested in his fourth comment. I must admit that I have a much greater respect for Iain after our chat.
Film news now, and I saw two films at the cinema this month - The Muppets and One For The Money. Okay, I confess, I am a huge fan of the Muppets. I have been ever since they first appeared on TV. This new movie made me laugh, made me cry and kept me entertained from start to finish. What more can you ask of a movie? One For The Money got slagged by the film critics but I didn't care. The film is based on the first Stephanie Plum novel by Janet Evanovich. I happen to be a big fan of the Stephanie Plum series and so I wanted to see if the film did the book justice. Well, in my opinion it did, and once again, I was thoroughly entertained. Which just goes to prove what I always say about films - the only critic that counts is yourself!
Well, that's a wrap for this month. I'm hoping to get a game of ATZ played towards the end of March. That's something I'm very much looking forward to. I can tell you now that the police station will NOT be appearing in that scenario but will feature prominently in the one after it. Take care, folks!
