A Happy New Year to all visitors!
Just to advise you of a new feature of this blog: Inspired by the so called "Honorable Lead Horder Vow", recently taken by Thorbjørn Nielsen on the Lead Adventure Forum, I decided to introduce a painting counter, too. It's not to force myself to the painting desk (that just doesn't work), but merely to keep track of my efforts.
Since it's all about a kind of mountaineering, an altimeter fits the bill. Every painted miniature gets me +1 over 'sea level', any miniature newly acquired (by buying, trade or as a present) draws me back by -1, regardless of its type or size. In the extreme, a 28mm scale tank would have the same value as a 15 mm scale chicken (not that I own anything like that). I start from scratch, not taking the already hoarded miniatures into account. Well, mountaineers don't start exactly from sea level each time, do they?
However, progresses won't show up immediately on the blog all the time, as some will be spared for the next bigger update (unless I get too excited about myself, of course).
On this note: "Im Frühtau zu Berge..."
