Since I have now a lot of work at the university I cannot paint, but I plan on adding more uboxed DBA sets and rearange the mitanni posts so that all the pictures are in one place. I placed a new order at Essex for Kassites, Vikings and Early Polish plus some assyrian miniatures packs to replace some of the figures from Assyrian DBA army by Essex.

It's been a while ...

It's been a while since my last post, but with the Christmas season I didn't had as much free time as I supposed I would have. On the other hand holidays meant that the chariot era armies that I ordered and wanted to paint along the Hittites didn't came to me :-( So there was nothing to write on.
But the long wait is over. Today I will pick the package from the post office and start cleaning the figures, later I might post some pictures featuring Essex and MY Miniatures together for further scale reference.
Happy New Year by the way :-)
