Started in 2011 as a therapy for my Dysthymia, this blog has taken many twists and turns along the way! Now based in Spain I'm returning to Napoleonics, The Peninsular War using 40mm Sash & Sabre figures to build French & British/ Portuguese armies. Also dabbling in Napoleonic naval warfare customising models from the 'Sails of Glory' game.

Russian Monks and Jimmy Page!
Lovely set of figures, from an unknown German maker - a set of 8 Russian Orthodox Priests/ Monks. Enjoyed painting these, blacks not always easy to get right. A smattering of gold helped to lift them slightly. I had a crack at the Icon .... tried for a Godly sort of head, but it just looks like Jimmy Page! I can't help laughing when I look at it. Well, it is only 10mm x 5mm!
The other three figures are a cowboy and two mountain men . Not sure of maker as I type this, John will know. Lovely castings again.
