Sunday was dominated by family business. In the mornig I went for a swim with Viktoria and in the afternoon we all took a trip to Düsseldorf and visited the (ice) hockey game of Düsseldorf against Schwenningen in the German Hockey League (DEL). Both was great pleasure and I enjoyed it very much but it delayed my start into Curt's painting challenge slightly.
So monday evening I prepared my workbench to start the challenge with some male delight:
- a glass of sherry to a good challenge,
- a cigar for this very special occasion,
- a cup of my favoured Earl Grey tea,
- a game of hockey in the background
- and -of course- some miniatures to paint
|The scene is set...|
So the first task for me is the entry for Curt's "Non-Combatants"-round. Last week I found a nice drinking monk which I bought ages ago. It would make a perfectly unmilitary entry but I found it a bit to easy to paint just a single miniature to tap the bonus points. Therefor I stayed with my original idea and started with the AWI camp scene by Perry Miniatures. Since painting went rather well on monday and yesterday I'm confident that I'll finish them until saturday.
I'm not sure how much time I'll have for writing during the challenge but I'll keep you in the loop concerning the my progress.
