Started in 2010 as a therapy for my Dysthymia, this blog has taken many twists and turns along the way. Now living in Spain, it will focus on my 40mm Napoleonic Peninsular collection and the wargames I play with them.

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.
