If Thou Blowest Not Thine Own Trumpet...

...then who shall blow it for thee?

Things have been a little quiet on the painting front over here lately, but we have not been completely idle. Long-term followers of C&G may be aware of a companion project of ours, an 18th Century ImagiNations blog, The Wars of the Sable Hat.

This blog chronicles the ongoing diplomatic and military tensions between the Duchy of Saxe-Coburn und Buchholz and the Principality of Velikye Byelgorodniya over the disputed province of Nizhny Bublik.

The armies for both sides are being painted and based by the esteemed Mr Mills, and the latest regiment

(yep, these guys)
is now on display here, with some background by your humble correspondent.

Please feel free to saunter over and bask in the ambience of a bygone age that never really was; here endeth the shameless plug!

Stay tuned...



  1. I really like this project. The miniatures. The way you painted them. Your imagi-nation blog. Very inspiring! Cheers, Karl

    1. Thanks Karl, though it's been a long time between posts, what with real life's insistent demands!

  2. Lovely uniforms for these "imaginations" That said, I find that I have enough trouble trying to paint up enough historical troops :)
