Sorry if some of you have already waited for a FIGZ report of mine. Due to severe technical problem I had been de-connected from the Internet, except from writing a mail every now and then. Down- or uploads where totally impossible due to bad connection. Fortunately, this has changed today.
In the meantime, others have put many nice pictures of this years' FIGZ on the web. You can see them for example here or here. Benno has also made a little video with impressions of the show.
I forgot to bring my camera to the show, therefore I was only able to make some snapshots with my smartphone anyway. So better have a look at these links and enjoy the stuff you will find there.
As I said, I was happy to have my Franznap Baden infantry ready for the show. I straightly put them into the competition (mainly to promote Francescos' great figures), but lost against Mickey and Andreas' great lizard warband. *sigh*
Once again, Francesco has made a great job. These figures are well detailed and a pleasure to paint.
My elder son joined me for this years' FIGZ. He's 9 years old and made his first serious attempt to paint. At the end, he even had enough courage to put his first work into the competition, winning a box of figures for 'first starters'.
And me? Well, I'm happy to say that I also won a prize in the single figure cathegory. :-D
Schillings' set 'Retreat from Moscow'. It was my first experiment with baking soda which went out pretty well.
In the meantime, I have nearly finished the base for my Italian guard grenadiers - the next update for my uniform project is about to come.
And there's going to be a very special thing for the competitions in Heiden this year. For the first time, it's not Napoleonic... ;-)
