So, with a little effort, it looks like I have successfully loaded a summary chart of my painting completions, going back to the last quarter of 1995.  I think I started keeping this log during the previous government shutdown.  
Years are on the left; the computer helpfully (?) truncated my dates.
h=horse f=foot v=vehicle
I haven’t touched a 15 in a long time.  I tried 15mm WWII for a brief period of time, so there’s a vehicle column.
1997 to 2001 were good years.  They got me my Dark Ages, Darkest Africa, and much of my massed fantasy armies.  2003 was a busy year.  I finished my 2nd Punic War project, and also got 54mm medieval skirmish on the table for the first time.  By 2005, my 2nd son and I were skating, which took up a lot of time, and I’m still recovering.

Back to (Not Quite) History

Rob Dean

My son Norman (aka the Prince Palatine of Wachovia) was up for a visit this weekend. We decided that we’d use the opportunity for a work session on some miniatures.


Back in 2011 at Cold Wars, we picked up a collection of Prince August molds and figures which gave us the basis for two new countries for the Not Quite Seven Years War. We have gradually organized and filled out units.

Today we dipped into the boxes to touch up and base the last of the figures for which we had full units, 4 squadrons of cavalry, two each for Hesse-Hattemstadt (in blue) and Schluesselbrett (in red).

The original flags were simple solid blue and red, so we each repainted one. Norman did the Schluesselbrett flag with the chess knight, and I did the Hesse-Hattemstadt flag with the wing.

A few additional officers will be needed to field complete regiments, so Norman took home the reds, leaving me to complete the blues. I hope pictures of those will be posted soon.

Steampunk (VSF) Goodness at the Maryland Renn Fair

Chris Palmer I was at the Maryland Renn Fair yesterday, and was happy to see a number of well done Steampunk outfits being worn.  Also, an iron-worker artist selling there at the fair had a number of really nice steampunk weapons for sale in his stall. See below for some shots of some of the folks I saw. Sorry for the picture quality, but all I had was my phone’s camera.
