Mid-Week Snippets

We've made it to another Wednesday. And at the time of this posting, it's halfway through the workday. It's like the Wednesday of hours on the Wednesday of days. If only it were the 15th of the month, too. Then it'd be the Wednesday of the month on the Wednesday of the week on the Wednesday of the hour.
... or maybe I'm just taking things too far now.

Figone now has their own website

Figone was away, but now they're back and online and expect new things coming from them soon.



From the announcement:

Hello
You have won an invitation from jeremie_lastminute.com!
You, yes you!
No, you’re not dreaming! You were selected in our prize draw and you have won an all-expenses paid visit to the brand new FIGONE site.

Two years ago I told my parents “I’m off to tour Africa, I’ll see you later.” So, after a long period of withdrawal from figurinism I’m back in my new tent, this time with brick walls, a roof and an internet connection. Perfect conditions for plunging back into the world of miniatures, starting by getting back in the saddle with … FIGONE.

OK, its not “real” new miniatures, but I didn’t show them before. News will arrive in September.
