Signs of Life

The Prussians are back on the Painting Desk!

Well, to call 2013 a weird year is pretty big understatement.  This blog started off well, but soon fell off the tracks (for various reasons), and we completely missed any opportunity to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the 1813 campaign with our blog posts, painted miniatures, terrain, or any games.  Sad, but not a huge deal since we do wish to continue gaming for the foreseeable future, not just the Fall of last year.

This was a long term project from the get go, but we're certainly hoping to pick up the pace here a bit in 2014.  :-)  No promises of daily updates, but certainly hope to have at least a trickle of posts coming month to month.  For now Prussians are back on my painting desk, and although we all have other projects in the fire as well, there should be some new painted toys coming to welcomes you all back with.

Andrea Color

One investment I made last August for this project was to collect a number of the Andrea Color sets.  They all sit on the top row of my paint racks, still waiting for me to properly give them whirl on my Napoleonics.  Many of you out there in the gaming blogosphere have highly recommended these so I'm pretty excited to potentially revolutionize my paint collection.

First thing is to finish up my Prussian fusilier battalion including convert up the chap above (Belgian mounted infantry officer from Perry Miniatures #DB3) to be my mounted Battalion Commander.  After they're done I'd like to knock out a few interesting and unique projects to really help kick start my inspirational juices before I dive back into some more Line Infantry.  So watch this space. :-)

Immer Vorwärts!
