Litko comes through!

"I just love the smell of plywood in the morning..."

Came home to find these in the letterbox- this weekend I'll be immersing myself in white glue, putty, sand and paint. Although the resulting mess will no doubt cause a rip or two in the fabric of domestic harmony, it will be worth the effort and finally all shall be revealed. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, something of a change of pace. I've been making another try at a getting into 6mm miniatures. This time with a bit more success than in the past, as you can see with the 1809 Austrians on the Kaiserliks blog.

These call for a whole different approach than do 28mm miniatures. In honesty, they are not as satisfying to work on as are their larger 28mm brethren, but they are a lot faster to paint, and
despite their rather "dwarfish" physiognomy, they do have their own charm and en masse do not look too bad at all.

While you are there, check out Braxen's excellent Waterloo collection to see just how good 6mm can be made to look.
