This blog might smell a bit...

but it's not dead, I assure you! My focus has just shifted a bit to a couple of things in real life e.g. looking for a new job and working on my songwriting for my first solo-record. The Early-Swiss-Project is 14 figures short from finished. And I'm working on a Cordoba-influenced DBA-camp for my muslim-morph-armies. And playing DBA as much as I can - and that's not too much. So, dear readers, have patience and hang on. Thanx!

That's great, I am eagerly awaiting the Swiss :) Now that your Parthians are done and your Swiss are almost done, you can start thinking about ordering more figures! Have you been able to keep from ordering more figs since you posted that back in May 2008? I know I've made similar resolutions and failed to keep them ;)

Ay Nel,
just saw you post...as time flies!

Yesterday I finished my last swiss Halbardier! The bases still need to be made...But they look so good already! I love these 6Bd elements, I put 7-8 figures on a base though!

More figures? No, just but a used car and my money went down the sink, so, no new figures.

But there's still enough lying around. I have to paint some medieval germans next so my Early Swiss have someone to play with. The focus is still on the Battle at Laupen 1339...

greets and thanx for posting!
read you on fanaticus

Hi Menic, great to see you back posting. Even when you where away doing other things, I always found new and inspiring stuff to look at on your site.

All the best

This is one awesome blog.

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!
