Having made great inroads into my medieval lead mountain, I am now tackling the even larger Thirty Years War one.


There is, however, a problem.


I have some of this and a few of that but try as I might I cannot find exactly the right matching miniatures for the units I wish to build.


This is compounded by the fact that a friend has alerted me to some excellent new European manufacturers of Thirty Years War figures; namely 1898, Tercio, Avanpost and Bohemian Miniatures.



There is no other solution. If I wish to reduce my Thirty Years War lead mountain I need to order more miniatures!



This is better. Being painted now is a unit of German arquebusiers for my Spanish army. Some Perry and Warlord Games figures from the lead (and plastic) mountain have been added to by newly purchased (and wonderful) Avanpost resin miniatures. In the background are unpainted pikemen (mostly 1898 miniatures).



The pikemen will be the basis of a new Spanish Tercio based on this painting of the Battle of Rocroi.



So, like Sisyphus, no matter how much painting I do, the lead mountain remains just as high as before!
