Painting Fever. August-October 2017

Recent months were crazy busy for me. No matter what though – there was always free time to sit down by my desk and paint a model or two. Here’s the summary of my works from last three months. Glart Smashrip O.M.G. This fat rat is probably one of the most awesome miniatures ever released. The wickedness of this model is epic. And I’m telling you this as a big time Skaven fan. No objectivity here -just pure blind affection! Glart is fat. Glart is too fat, in fact. How’s he playing Blood Bowl is a mystery for me. He definitely has the strength, but very little speed and stamina;). The model itself represents, in my opinion, how the higher class of Skaven society could look like. I can see  fat Grey Seer or Warlock Engineer of Clan Skryre. Eating warpstone all day – everyrat would gain a few kilos on a diet like that, right? Too bad GW hasn’t released anything like that. Thankfully there’s Glart. I got him during the visit in Warhammer …

The slump is over. Part 1 (Recent paint jobs)

Well, it’s not what I excepted. The break, I mean. What the fudge?! I was over occupied with tons of other things, and all of the sudden – I find this huge gap on my blog. No updates for ages. Recently, I finally added the entry to the blog (after a few months of break), and right now I need to catch up with  writing and showing of my painting jobs. So, let’s sum things up for a start. Still living in Spain, in small town of Canet de Mar, about 30 km north of Barcelona. For now, me and my wife decided to give up on travelling for some time and focus more on work. And the settled life is opportunity for me to paint even more, to train my painting skills and finally to get some extra cash of painting commissions… …worry not. Soon, I’ll be on the road again (January 2018 if nothing unexpected will occur), and until then I’ll paint like crazy and try to be better painter. And believe me, …

Battle Report: Infinity – Bakunin Nomads vs CA Morats (200 points)

Last month was crazy busy for me. Work, family, partying at weekends…you know usual stuff… and because of that, I had absolutely minimum time that to spend to give some love to the blog. Shame on me, I’m aware of that. …from now on – I say – enough! I have plenty of collected material to write, and I need to catch up with all this stuff. And it’s actually cool, because I really miss that:). Today I have for you tiny battle report from my Infinity game I played few weeks ago in Warsaw’s wargaming Gentlemen’s Club. It was my second game of Infinty- so it’s full of my simple rookie mistakes. And my opponent – Zippy Lapdos was unmerciful tutor, he ground me like a road roller. I don’t complain though. I was prepared for that – the idea was to be beaten, but learn the rules and tricks will help me in next games. So, big thanks to Zippy for patience while playing with me. I also would like to apologize for …

Infinity! Here I come! aka my first game

Finally! I made it! After all this years, I finished my Infinity Bakunin Nomads and I was ready and willing to play. But first things first, I needed a tutorial. The game I will got familiar with the game. Well, reading the rules, watching Youtube battle reports is not enough. Real life game was a necessity. Thanks to me, Corvus Belli, company behind Infinity, is organising so called ‘WarCors’ program. I tell you, this is awesome. WarCors are players who put extra effort to the hobby. They watch over their local community. They organize tournaments, other events, or… this is most interesting for me… make demonstration games. A year ago, when I had first look crush on Infinity, I was watching tutorial game between Pat, the local WarCor in Warsaw and my friend Jarek of Wargamer Hobby Store. And I thought, I might need the tutor like Pat to get more familiar with the game. In about two months or so. Pat, motivated with WarCor’s duty, was willing to help whenever I want to. Of …

The Eater of Sins.

Busy, but exciting month behind me. Few games, few miniatures done (just waiting to be photographed and presented here), and then I’ve realised that I still have one more (the very last) model, that I’ve painted in Thailand, back in early days of March 2016 (or even in February). I’m referring to Sin-Eater Observant for Nomads, Infinity, one of the last models I plan to paint to support my Nomads, Bakunin force. At least for some time. My other projects require my unwavering attention. (disclaimer: Infinity players do not read that!;). Blood Angles is number one priority right now. …but let’s stick to Sin-Eater Observant for now. Next week, I’ll finally get my first tutorial game of Infinity. Found the guy willing to spare few hours for me and teach the mechanics in actual gameplay. I was prepering myself for some time now. Reading rules and watching tutorials and battle reports, but there’s nothing like the living tutor to show you what Infinity is all about. So, next week, Wednesday or Thursday, I go to …

Reverend Custodier of Infinity

Settled for a while now. It’s been a month already since I got back from Asia and it’s starting to be some king of fading memory. It’s always like that – sitting in Poland, hidden in my room with the cup of tea in my hand. Watching the rain outside, and talking to myself: what the hell am I doing here? Cold, wet and grey. My everlasting Polish impression. I miss bright colours and sunny hot days. Remind me, why exactly I returned here? Oh, wait I remember – one of the main reasons I’m here again is that I’m miniatures freak. I can’t be apart from them for too long or I go crazy (friends and family are also here:). So, Poland again. …but I have few more stuff I painted in Thailand. Like this Reverend Custodier model for Nomads, Infinity. Painted her some time ago in my last days on Koh Chang, but so far I had no opportunity to shoot proper photos and write a few things about her. It’s my second …

Bakunin Sniper

Ok. Back to Infinity. Actually few weeks ago, when I was still in Thailand, I painted three Infinity Nomads miniatures. So, be aware this is no recent miniature. One of the three – it was this Moderator Multi Sniper. The Sniper of Nomads Jurisdictional Bakunin Force is kind of not usual model, when you think about usual Infinity sculpts. My first impression is always like – dynamic poses, sculpted fragile, with so many elements so difficult to pin, glue and assemble. And this guy? Crouched, hidden behind the cover. Easy to get it together, easy to paint and easy to transport (unlike many other miniatures from Corvus Belli!). I bet it looks cool  on the battlefield. Deploying this guy on the rooftop of the tallest building, watching for all area, controlling every enemy move. Very cinematic. The only problem is that he’s nothing like this Hollywood sniper bad-asses with crazy awesome shooting skills. He’s just simple mediocre Moderator. He will not take total control over entire battlefield. Too bad. About painting job. I went to …
