Travelling Miniatures 2019

The time passed so quick… it was almost like a blink of an eye… January, February and… boom! March already and I have to come back to Europe… 2,5 months later and here I am again. My beloved, but cold and rainy Warsaw… (at least I managed to escape most of the winter). As usual, half of my backpack was filled with miniatures, paints, brushes and other hobby related essentials. I even found the place for a tube with photo backdrops and a tripod for a camera. For real, if not the hobby stuff I dragged along, my luggage would be half as big as my current one. …but, who cares, right? Miniatures are big part of my life, and I couldn’t imagine a break from hobby for 2,5 months. This time we headed to Vietnam, and spent there most of the time here. It’s easy life here. We find a nice area to hang, comfortable hotel and we set up our camp for couple of weeks at least. And everything is just a breeze. …

Personal projects tab

For the last couple of years I was working on a few personal projects of mine. And some of them are at certain stages of completion. So, instead to write several posts with the pictures and full description – I decided to set up separate tabs on the header menu. Each tab will lead you to the site about one of my projects. Pictures and background story. It’s going to be all there. Gathered in one place and easier to find. For starters – My Warhammer Fantasy Altdorf army. Here’s the link. Of course , it’s an on going thing. There are so many miniatures in my storage still waiting to be painted and I plan to do so. Next in line to cover are: Imperial Fists for Warhammer 40000 and Chaos for Warhammer Fantasy. I’ll inform you about any updates in separate posts. Cheers!

Miniatures’ Photography (…while travel)

I’ve started this blog in February 2015. And from the day one, one of my major issues is how to take good pictures of my miniatures. At very beginning, I had at my disposal only old compact Canon camera. And it was disaster – there was no chance to take proper miniature photos with this piece of crap. The only good thing I could say about this junk – it was pink. Yeah, nice pink colour – my wife really liked this:). …and the moment for starting miniature blog was kind of unfortunate. During that time I was staying in Puerto Viejo in Costa Rica (almost a month there), and believe me, while this coastal Caribbean town is absolutely stunning (sun, sea, sloths and stuff;), there is not many stuff to buy, if you want to improve your photography skills (I mean: buy better equipment). Luckily, we already have some saved cash for better camera, and the only issue was – finding the store with adequate hardware… The opportunity arrived when we moved to Mexico …

How new camera changed my life…

I found out recently that to present your miniatures in proper way, you need (beside the fact you have awesome painting skills) very good camera. What can I say – I know what many of you are thinking right now – Wow! Thank you Captain Obvious! You are so helpful! I do know it’s a well known fact: better camera = better photos, but until I bought my new Canon EOS Rebel T5 few weeks ago and I took some pictures by myself, I became couldn’t believe in it 100%. Difference between my old compact camera and new one is massive. New photos are so clear, colours so vibrant and everything is so sharp. I’m really impressed. The reflex camera it was what I needed. Of course, I’m not a professional – I’m not trying to tell you: my photos are the best in the world, but as total amateur in photo shooting I can tell: these are ‘wow’ photographies. The best I managed to take. Just take a look at some we took during …
