The Diary ends today...

...because I am on my way to conquer the  
Mountains of Lead !

My fellow Bloggers of Conquering the Lead Mountain and The Doc´s Diary and I decided to put our efforts together in the never ending struggle to explore the tops as well as the deep and hidden valleys of the Lead Mountains.
To all of you who followed my Diary and supported my hobby enthusiasm: Thanks a lot! Please follow me to the Mountains of Lead, I think you will not be dissapointed!

All the best

Sharpe´s Gun

 It´s been a while, but I of course I´ve painted more 40mm French. First the magnificent Perry Cannon, Resin miniatures and absolutly fantastic to paint, but a bit fiddly to assemble. It´s finished, sorry for the crappy pics. The gun will be the objective in our TACTICA participation game.
 A Sappeur to guard the cannon. He will get a melee bonus, cause he´s tall and strong and has this nasty huge axe. My favourite miniature of the range so far.

A happy New Year (2013 preview - 2012 review)

I hope all of you had a nice party yesterday and a good start into 2013. Again Christopher inspiered me to write this post.
The review of my plans for 2012 is quickly done. The only project I´ve finished was the Trojan Project with Tilman, which I really enjoyed. But I didn´t paint any Future Wars or Fantasy stuff as I planned one year ago. Instead I did some various miniatures for the Lead Painters League, but I didn´t perform well.
BUT then I was hit by the Musketeer Miniatures gorgeous Germans, and started painting Germans for the Migration period. I painted a lot of them, a 4 pt. SAGA army and almost a Dux Britanniarum Starter force, plus some terrain. I really stayed focused (OK but bought a lot of other stuff for my Lead Mountain) on this, to my own suprise. Plus the 40mm Perry stuff I frequently painted.

Do I have plans for 2013? 

Hell yeah!
40mm Nappies: I will finish my french and spanish guerilla , the deadline is end of February. I really enjoy painting this scale at the momment, and would like to paint up some 8 or so British Light Infantry And/or 95th Rifles as opponents for the french. But it´s possible that I get tired when the TACTICA is over.

Incursio Barbarica:On Top of the list. Paint the remaining Germans and a Late Roman force, really lookig forward to this! Plus a gaming matt and more scenery, more civilians. Play Dux Brit. with Tilman then.

That´s what I will do for sure.

Other ideas (at the momment):
Russo-Japanese War with Tsuba´s excellent miniatures.
Something in 15mm with Tilman, most possibly FoW.
40k Eldar (no GW bashing please ;-) )

Let´s see how long this ideas will last...
