John Carter Miniatures .......

Well, I am furiously attempting to paint a bunch of 70s lead miniatures for the end of May - this being the deadline for the OSFMapa journal.  Almost finished my article but need the pics....if I don't finish them then it's down to unpainted ones - not a problem either way but it would be nice to have finished them at last...they've been waiting 35 or more years.

I am still annoyed that the film bombed at the box office. Rich Ross, the head of the Disney film making studio has resigned..... personally I feel he must have had an enemy in the ranks so JC was bombed from the planning stages. You don't f**k with Hollywood boys.

"The film, which was based on a series of books by Tarzan writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, eventually cost more than $250m (£155m, 189m euros) and last month Disney said it expected the film to lose about $200m"

If anyone from Disney is reading this please let them know that I would be willing to take his place. I have both teenage and younger children and am aware of what sells in the movie world. I will also take a pay cut from whatever he was on. Win-Win situation...................I can be there within the week....................
