“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”
Welcome to my brand new blog. It is still pretty much work in progress. I have not yet decided on a theme but you have to start somewhere.
This blog is about my miniature gaming hobby. I am mainly interested in the historical genre. My current project (and the one that got me this blog) is the First New Zealand War (aka First Māori War). The centre piece of that project is the new range from Empress Miniatures which was sculpted by the incredibly talented Paul Hicks.
I sponsored the sculpting of that range. However, this does not mean that I am stinking rich. I have just figured out that it is more satisfying to invest into a project that I am 100% interested in, rather than investing into dozens of projects I am only 60-80% interested in. This approach also accommodates my mediocre painting speed as a nice side effect.
Enough words for today. Here is a picture showing the painting results of my first figures of that fantastic range:
