this is David with a small teaser for an upcoming, larger series of
individual but interconnected posts. I call this collection of posts a
project diary. Different than the
diary on 1177 B.C.
I wrote a while back, this is not so much intended as a sequential series of
WIP-shots and explanations of how I created a single miniature. Instead, this
diary will mainly feature pictures of finished miniatures, together with some
accompanying thoughts and bits of information, that are part of a larger
project of multiple individual miniatures and multi-figure vignettes.
The title of the larger project is Bornhöved, 1227 A.D..
Bornhöved is the name
of a small town in the middle of nowhere in the northern German region of
Holstein. In 1227 A.D., a
battle took place there, in which the troops of German princes and cities fought
the invading army of King Valdemar II of Denmark and his German allies – and
which had great consequences for the further development of (Northwestern)
European history. The goal of the project is for me to learn more about this
period in medieval European history – by
recreating (some of) the people who participated in that battle in 1/72 scale.
What lies ahead
Over the coming months, I will use the diary to document what I learn about
some of the people who (possibly…) participated in that medieval battle.
And, of course, to show off the miniatures I created while doing so. In the
first article in this series, however, I will start out with a little
historical primer about the Battle of Bornhöved. So, stay tuned for a
little history lesson dropping in next month!
I’d be happy if you followed along – let me know, in the comments or through
my email (david [at] massivevoodo [dot] com), if you have questions. Thanks so
far – and see you in a bit!
p.s.: A big, chunky thank you! to my jungle-brother Roman for creating the
wonderful header pic for my diary!
