I have been beavering away since the start of the Challenge on a series of miniatures for the first bonus round, but felt that I needed to register some points in the Challenge proper before the cut was made. To that end I have set about these rather nice Paul Hicks sculpts with lashings of blue paint.
These are from ‘Empress Miniatures’ New Zealand Wars range representing Royal Naval command and personalities. They are, as with my previous experience of this range, nicely cast and have been languishing in the lead pile for far too long.
Before I was once again seduced by the bonus rounds, I was hoping to use this year’s challenge to find a way back to my beloved Victorian era and these would certainly be a step in the right direction. Alas it would seem that I have already been distracted, but I am hopeful to add to my Crimean War and Indian Mutiny collections before the end of proceedings – time will tell if I have the stamina and willpower to achieve my goal.
