Lead Mountain Grows...

Well I heeded the sound advice of Clint, Tamsin and Mark and did not jump on the Spectre Miniatures Kickstarter (though I did download the free Beta rules for a look at). I'm not 100% sure how I want to expand the Empress project yet, so will wait until I get that underway before deciding.

Of course that didn't stop the 'Lead Mountain' growing considerably today as my Black Tree Design sale order turned up, over 100 more miniatures for £65 including shipping (so 65p a figure compared to Spectre's £2 a pop).

It was mainly Germans and Soviets and I know I have a late war  WW2 Eastern Front project underway in 20mm but I have always loved these Nick Collier sculpted figures originally released by Harlequin so have earmarked a 28mm 1942 Eastern Front Bolt Action/Chain of Command platoon level project. Given the relative simplicity of the uniforms of both sides, I might set myself a challenge to paint in a week or something when I take some holiday, we'll see...


  1. Looks like my lead pile, over 50 Germans and about 20 something French!

  2. Cant wait to see these chaps painted and fielded

  3. I was surprised how nice they are when my first Russians turned up. I would avoid the vehciles unfortunately....the Hanomag and the Tiger were absolute sons of b's to put together...more milliput than machine......Bought loads of infantry since though....might even paint some at some point............
