Old Paint

A Knight of either Nidau or Neuchâtel or Fenis I painted in pre-DBA-times a couple of years ago. The model is one of a big lot of refugees from the Evil Empire. I'm working on a way to use these huge WH-Knights for DBA, maybe 2 knights on a magnetic 60x50mm base. The baron of Nidau was a powerful enemy to Berne with his houshold troops and 140 nobel knights from the Elsass and Swabia at the Battle of Laupen 1339. The Heraldry is not quite correct...about the inspiration designwise I only say "Codex Manesse". (Picture: Spiezer Schilling late 15th century, Battle of Laupen).

This blog is dedicated to ancient and medieval miniature wargaming. I'd like to share pictures of my painted armies and models, self made terrain-pieces and sketches of projects still residing in my head or on a piece of paper.
My main interest at the moment is creating armies and accessories, researching for historical or made-up scenarios and campaigns for the fast-play wargaming rules from "De bellis Antiquitatis" (DBA) with 25mm and 15mm figurines.
I use the blog-format rather unconventionaly. It is more like a scrapbook. And I update the older posts so keep checking. I recommend utilizing the labels to the left. So if your just interested in miniatures click the "Miniatures"-label and you will be presented with posts concerning painting, figurines etc. And don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom of the page for more. And many thanks for commenting!
