Dear chum Curt of "Analogue-Hobbies" fame and me have a little miniature exchange program running (well, shuffling would be a little more appropriate judging by our two glacial speed) since last challenge.
It all started when he asked me if I'd paint some figures for him. I had to refuse as
my painting output is barely enough to satisfy my own need for painted
lead. So we agreed on another arrangement which sees me painting a
figure of his choice for him in exchange for a figure he does for me.
Last year I took a little short cut as he wanted me to paint a Aella figure from Footsore Miniatures (Then Musketeer Miniatures). At the time I was hoping to pick up one with Commitatus Figurines at TACTICA in Hamburg. But as Commitatus didn't show up I sent him the Aella I had painted for last years challenge. I still have to get me another Aella for my own Saxons...
So this year Curt wanted me to paint up General Suvorov from Lead Adventure Miniatures for him. Having never painted one for my own need I actually had to paint up a figure exclusively for him.
It took me a while to get hold of him but finally here he is in all his dark splendor.
The figure was a real joy to paint and little clean up was required.
I tried to match the basing Curt uses for his other Post-Apoc miniatures but I leave it up to him to decide wether I succeeded or not.
Somehow I doubt it was the last Lead Adventure miniature I painted...
Maybe a little detour into some apocalyptic future might be in order.
Well, that's it from me for now and I hope Curt he'll serve you well on the gaming table.
