Madness squared: Normandy in 20mm
« on: June 06, 2021, 10:42:25 AM »
For someone with the size of my lead pile and the sheer logistical problem of accommodating so many projects, it is utter, absurd madness to start not only another era but a new scale, too. Still, where would we wargamers be without the slight overdose of insanity, so I'll shamelessly say: I enjoyed it.

Within 2 months I painted 120 figures, 6 vehicles, a handful of houses and several scenic items. The explanation for this productivity boost is, on the one hand, that I kept at it (it's really amazing when you swap the 1.5 hours you have in the evening for the painting table instead of TV and internet) and, on the other hand, that it was incredibly fun.

Many thanks to V, TacticalPainter, Moiterei_1984 and the other artists on this forum who inspired me with their work. Here is my humble contribution to the 20mm madness: The Americans. Next will be the Germans, they are already on the painting table....

Holy crap!  Nice stuff!  Man, there is some nice 20mm stuff out there, especially when it's done up like you have.

Thank you all very much for your kind comments, I appreciate them very much!

With a little delay, more pictures of the next milestone will follow. The reason for the delay is that I have switched to batch painting and always paint 40+ figures at the same time. With a good audiobook this can be endured, and while nothing happens for a while, the advantage is that at some point suddenly a lot figures are finished all at once...
