Re: Re: What is your next Project ???

still limping along with my Leipzig project. finished my wurtembergers, now painting french voltiguers. and i started back on GNW figures, which a work at every now and then. i hope to have pictures of the leipzig project this year. dave, we've all made a few rash statements every now and then. this forum is a place where people who are passionate about history gather. we often disagree, but i think we all respect each others opinions nonetheless. a forum should be a place where all points are given and considered, within reason, and hopefully with some diplomacy observed. and your projects sound most interesting!

Re: Re: Re: What is your next Project ???

Dear madpenman,

Can't wait to see some of your pictures. Everyone should have a project to share. Enjoying this forum is a priveledge, and I enjoy both the art and the history of our hobby. I know I would box up all of my stuff and never look at it again if I didn't have the "sharing" thing with friends to look forward to. And thank you.

Cheers to ya Mate !!!

Hi Dave; sorry about the misunderstanding the other day - I was just citing an incident which was quite possibly regarded as a legitimate 'ruse de guerre' at the time, or may even have been simply a propaganda story. Anyway, hope your Mom's OK.
As for current project, I'm still trying to cope with the Caesar Biblical 'troop-surge'! Would just like to know when/if the Egyptian and Mycenean chariots will arrive...
Best wishes, Mike.

I'm in a bit of a funk. About a month ago I finished converting a regiment each of reiters and mounted arquebusiers for my renaissance armies and now I'm stuck for inspiration. Maybe its a sign that I should take a break for the summer.

3) then some french horse artillery (full-dress) Italeri guard horse artillery, with zvezda guns, and head swops with zvezda shakos.

4) Some Odemars Olg Guard grenadiers

Target for all this- 6 weeks (we'll see!)

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: What is your next Project ???

Complete my re-paint of French Guard foot artillery and French line foot artillery (Airfix and Esci); working also on an advancing line of Russian heavy grenadiers (Zvezda). Then there's the nightly trimming in front of the tv (Strelets has got me going after medievals and Romans!)

I should be ready for the next project by the time I'm 432.

making a diorama 4x8 ft of 18th or 19th cent's, a sort of multipurpose thing that I can use for awi, war of 1812, or nappy. I'm using hirst arts blocks for buildings.

Also going to make a new diorama 16ft by 6ft for a Napoleonic campaign in 2008. I generally game in the summer months and paint through the winter. My curent layout is in its 4th season and has been used for WW11 in Northern Europe.
