The First Theme Round ('Cold') Is Now Up!

Well, I'm a bit rusty after a year away but I finally got all the hamsters spinning all the wheels in the right direction.  I'm happy to announce that the first theme round is now ready for viewing so please, click on over to the Theme page, view all the wonderful entires and cast your votes. Top three get extra points and a treat from the Snowlord (me).

As a reminder to all the participants, PLEASE send me your theme entries by Saturday before midnight (my time CST). I had to spend an inordinate amount of time adjusting for stragglers today. Not a huge issue but I will be suitably ruthless next time (roars,  claws air, gnashes teeth, etc.)

As for myself I returned to a project I started last year, the 1812 French retreat from Moscow.  I managed to burn some midnight oil (actually, like, a tanker of midnight oil) and got these three cavalrymen done for today's launch. Poor lads look cold and rather harried. Well, I guess that's what happens when you holiday uninvited in Russia...

Anyway, enough blather! Go visit the Theme page and enjoy the gallery!


  1. "Retreat from Moscow" would seem to be a "THING" this year! ;-)

    Nice work!

  2. Great first round, this is impressive stuff


  3. Some great imagination, and interpretation as well.

  4. These are great, Curt; particularly liking the snowy cloaks!

    Birch tree background is also extremely effective, BTW...

  5. Ahhh, Saturday... Excuse me, please.
    Your figures are really nice, great colours!

    1. No worries Juan, just remember for next time and thanks for the thumbs up.

  6. As expected great winter work on these chaps Curt!
