I have been a bit remiss in getting this posted , and I am playing catch up. I have long been a fan of Nicks work that appears on his fine Blog (Molterei's bunte Welt
) . We met up in person at Crisis in November, and just after I sent over some bits for his ongoing Spanish Civil War project that were languishing in my lead mountain with no plans to see the light of day. However just after christmas a parcel turned up from Nick with an absolutely wonderfully painted figure - a Centurion of the dromedarii
Nick tells me the camel (or precisely the dromedary) was by A&A miniatures, the shield by LBM Studios and rider from Aventine Miniatures.
I really appreciate the time and effort here Nick and he graces my display shelves with pride, and who knows while I have never done much ancients stuff - if i can get army with these in it could swing it!
The other item that arrived around Christimas is my copy of Pat Smith's (Wargaming with Silver Whiste
blog) Setting the Scene book.
If you ever want to know all about creating winter scenes - this is the tome for you . Full of advice suitable for the beginner to veteran terrain and model maker - top job Pat.
Again - not a project I have definite plans for , but your never know where the interest takes you do you. I am glad I have a copy that pulls everything together in one place.
Pat has announced a second and probably fina
l print run - so don't miss out on a copy .
