An inviting photograph of Salzburg, Austria's Christkindlmarkt. Ahhh. . . . I can almost hear the crunch of snow underfoot and smell the gluehwein and freshly roasted almonds!
Took the evening off from painting yesterday and instead retired early to bed with a stack of old Miniature Wargames magazines. Wonderful to revisit those inspiring old articles in the first dozen issues of that particular magazine. On the figure painting front, just a couple of things left to touch up on the current batch of four RSM95 musketeers, and then it's full steam ahead on the first few officers, standard-bearer, and drummer as well as the mounted colonel. In the meantime, enjoy these two festive Christmas images.
Old-fashioned images of Santa Claus/ Saint Nikolaus/ Father Christmas are delightful. I suspect the one above is very like that envisioned each year by Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II when he makes up his Christmas wishlist.
