Really like the beastmen, but also really interesting to see the terrain pieces you‘ve been working upon.

Have you got an end goal in mind, or are you following your muse on this one?

Thank you for your kind words  :). I always have problem with terrain - I need to paint it :p. Another thing is I am a very slow at terrain creation, because I like to have a well researched stuff in terms of historical accuracy, so I am working now from the beginning on my n-iteration of Prague façades.

As for the goals and when do I end my projects. Minis for my prague project are finished, they just need some paintjob. The ottoman stuff is for a spin-off project set in the early XVIIth century Cairo for which I'm currently finishing warbands (Ottoman, Arab, Mameluke and Persian) and some civilians. At least I've got my terrains for Cairo ready :).

All my projects are set in the early XVIIth century so I can pretty easily justify any additions :).

Well, I'm saving some money to commission moulds for my eastern European  minis (mainly polish/ruthenian/moldavian/transylvanian nobility/peasantry/burghers) and publish a narrative-driven swashbuckling game (rules are in Polish, but I'm slowly working on an abridged english version with Prague as a setting; 1-10 minis, usually 3-4, 40cmx40cm board for most of the scenarios). I'm working on this project since 2013 and probably it will take another year or so to be finished.

I've started working on my Cairo board, since buildings are almost ready.

Thank you :), now I'll be working on 7-10 civilian minis to populate my Cairo (based  primarily on Codex Vindobonensis and Solomon Schweigger's travelogue engravings), last Mameluke, Cairo Arab and Safavid warband and than proceed to new stuff (Machete, Solomon Kane and monsters from the Ancient Egyptian mythology).

I am so absolutely enamored with this project. Looking forward to how the Cairo pieces come together.
