How long to go before the Army is complete?

All the Best

Life gets in the way a lot at the moment. That's good actually but painting is slow, especially in 25mm. I think it will take at least a month to finish the missing elements for the following muslim armies of the magreb and from syria:
- Two Camel-elements for Fanatic Berber III/74
- Two Cavalry-elements and two Bows for the IV/20 Ayyubid Egyptians.
Playable muslim armies are:
Early Muslim III/33
Andalusian III/34
Syria IV/6

The Tuareg III/69 I'd love to do but I haven't got enough camels yet. Other projects are waiting and I promised myself to order nothing new until I get the following projects finished:
15mm Parthian II/37
25mm Early Swiss

It's going to take me years! Sigh

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!
