I did something yesterday...

... I never thought I'd do.

I bought some miniatures that someone else had already painted.

As long time readers of this blog will know, I paint a lot of models. I can't remember the last time I haven't painted at least 365 miniatures in a year (one a day) and there have been a few years recently where I've painted more than 10 models a week.

Even with all that painting I realized that I'm not going to get to all the projects I'd like to get to. One of those projects was expanding my Napoleonic collection with some Brunswicker allies for my Brits. Of course, these were going to come after the Russians, French, and Poles I'm yet to paint, but I saw something on a fantastic blog (Wargaming with Silver Whistle) that spurred me into action. Pat Smith, author of said blog, was selling off some of his projects, including a batch of painted and unpainted Brunswickers. The price was an absolute bargain, and Pat's work has always been inspirational, so I bought them.

Pat has a few other things he's selling that you really should check out. He has some WW2 Germans, and an amazing Zulu Wars collection (that we featured in WI307 and WI309). I highly recommend you check them out.

  1. They couldn't have gone to a better home! Pat's work and projects are truly inspirational.

  2. Thanks Dave for your kind words, the figures were posted to you this morning.

    1. Thanks Pat, much appreciated. It was an odd feeling making the purchase. I've sold lots of stuff I've painted before, but never the other way around.

      I'm not sure if I've started on some sort of slippery slope ; )


  3. Great investment Dave. Pat did a shiny job on those Brunswickers- who wouldn't feel proud to field them!
