It's Back to the Mindens

Regiment Andlau using Minden Miniatures.

I tried painting some of the British Surens, but found that my brushes weren't inspired. So I decided that it was time to shift to what "I want to paint, rather than what I think that I need."

So this afternoon, I cleaned up and got two squadrons of Minden SYW Austrian cuirassiers ready for priming. I am really looking forward to finally getting around to painting these figures and hope that I have found the cure for my loss of painting mojo of late. We shall see.


  1. I just knew it was going to be a beautiful day today, despite the nonsense going on on TMP by the deranged Aussie. Welcome back Jim :-)

  2. Morning Jim,

    Ah, now I feel settled. Thanks! Looking very forward to seeing those Austrian cuirassiers. Your sporadic painting mojo might just due to the dog days of summer, and the fact that there's plenty of stuff to do outside -- i.e., ballgames in Chicago. ;-)

    Best Regards,


  3. Good to see the Austrians again!

    I'm sure painting what excites will cure the painting blues.


  4. beautiful work, as always ...

  5. Ah the Austrians - wonderful! :-) Excellent to see more of the "good guys". ;-)
