I was a little surprised when in August he sent me these early casts in exchange for something tasty and uniquely German I've dispatched to Sweden earlier. I'm curious if this could work again ;-)
By this time I was tinkering with the idea to start a project for this period for quite a while already. Only a lack of a nice AND comprehensive range has stilled my fingers so far.
Just when I've turned my mind towards going 15mm, these arrived at my door step. As I'm definitely no one to turn down the chance of painting some lovely miniatures for a period close at my heart and unreleased ones at that, the decision was made. I'll stick with the bigger scale.
Unfortunately I had one of those (not so rare) awkward painting accidensts when the batch was almost done. While they were patiently sitting on my work bench, waiting for their last touch ups and a final coat of matt varnish, I've actually managed to sprinkle them liberaly with black primer when I undercoated some other miniatures. You might probably imagine my terrified face when I came back to finish them the day after and discovered the mess I've created. Well, what should I say? It ment back to start for most of the figures.

Ok, that's it for now. Hope you enjoyed and if you have only the slightest interest into the Franco-Prussian war keep an eye on Sörens blog for updates on the subject.
A merry Christmas and an enjoyable festive season to all of you.
