Started in 2011 as a therapy for my Dysthymia, this blog currently jumps between several projects - The French & Indian War in 28mm, 'Travel Battle' by the Perrys, Romans & Britons in 25mm and WW2 'Normandy' in 15mm, so plenty of variety!

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.
