The Lead Adventure Forum runs periodic painting clubs that revolve around a variety of themes. Currently running is the 'Back of Beyond' club, and I decided to paint a Lead Adventure Miniatures 'Professor Witchheimer' figure for my first entry.
"Back of Beyond" covers the Russian Civil War and all the other shenanigans going on in East Asia during the 1920s. The period saw an explosion in popularity when Mark Copplestone released his range after being inspired by the book "Setting the East Ablaze" by Peter Hopkirk. It's a very good book.
