Other projects are still waiting to be finished and I can´t wait to start a new one. An old matter that surely everybody knows.
Today has been the last day of my holidays. The holiday started with my birthday and I got some very good books from my wife. One of these books is "Hail Caesar". It´s great and looks fantastic.
I also got "some" Xyston-Romans, too. I guess they are about 70 figures.
But I had no time to paint them during the holidays because the day after my birthday we started a trip to Sardinia for one week. Inspired by the history of this island, the figures and the new book I wasn´t able to keen on my other projects. I just had to paint at least one of these superb miniatures.
This panit-job was done today and this is one of my first painted 15mm-figures ever (I´ve only painted two prussians of the SYW and one macedonian Hoplite in this scale before).
The plan is to get an army for Armati so that I can send the Romans against the army of Carthago that has been built up by one of my friends. As you all know - Carthago lost all wars against Rome in the end (I´m sorry for that, ACW-Lover, but this will happen again).
But I´ll try to mix the paint-job with my projects left. Whenever I´m bored by painting the same uniform (maybe after 5-6 figures) I´ll work on the other project for a while.
