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, …

Chaos Dwarfs Daemonsmiths

December was really busy for me. First time since 2012 in Europe, and it meant tone of work for me. And in the hobby? Obviously, quite opposite. Barely no time for painting or gaming. The slump. And I hate those. Despite the obstacles I managed to work a bit. These three Chaos Dwarfs Sorcerers from Forge World are the only result of my December brush struggle. It’s better this than nothing, right? And that was close… (due to the overwork). I grabbed those three on one of the internet auctions site as a bulk deal of big batch of Forge World’s Chaos Dwarfs – including ordinary Chaos Dwarfs Warriors (Infernal Guard), Bull Centaurs and Bull Taurus. They were kept closed in the box for over the year, and I decided I should give them some love finally. These three Daemonsmiths were kind of training ground for me. I’m determined to gave up on washes. And if it’s not absolutely necessary, do not use them. Paint only. While I was painting those guys, I used few …

December Painting Fever

Another batch of miniatures for sale ready. As usual in my summaries – I’m posting pictures and little ‘about’ text of three models I’ve painted recently. The first is… Adeptus Mechanicus Tech-Priest Dominus When Adeptus Mechanicus and Skitarii Codexes Wwarhammer 40000) were released I was super excited. Plus those awesome models! I was all into it, having uncontrolled urge to collect another army. Well, thankfully for my budget I got back to my senses, and I gave up on the idea. But a few months ago I had finished ‘Mechanicum’  book from Horus Heresy series and I got Mars fever all over again. This time I was pretty sure, there’s is not even slight chance to go for Mechanicum (too many projects on my head at the moment), but the model of Tech-Priest Dominus was obligatory to paint. There was no doubt about it. The model is simply awesome and it was pure pleasure to paint it. The complexity of this plastic sculpt is amazing. Games Workshop delivered a true piece of art. And only …

The Last Summer Painting Fever

OK. Carmine Dragon is finished and in about three days I’m going to Japan for almost two weeks. So, without any doubt – this is my last painting session before the trip. The small tradition is that in my regular Painting Fever post I have three miniatures to present. So, today I also have only two. I didn’t make to paint three before Japan… Starting from my first Age of Sigmar model… Orruk Weirdnob Shaman I prepared this model for one of the Warsaw’s hobby store painting competition. The deal was that you have to come to the store, buy any model you like and paint it. As I was after Orruk Weirdnob Shaman for quite a some time now, I entered the contest, simply to grab the opportunity to get this green guy. Well, if you follow my blog, and read my posts from time to time, you probably know my attitude to Age of Sigmar. Long story short –  I don’t get Rage of Sigmar, when I see or hear about it, but …

5th Festival of Miniature Painting and Sculpture. Toruń, Poland 2016

As promised, I’m back on my feet and regular posts will pop out. Two times a week is my optimal plan, and I’m going to stick to this no matter what. Today I have for you little photo report from Festival of Miniature Painting and Sculpture held in Toruń, Poland in 27-28 June 2016. I know, this event was quite some time ago, and I should post this sooner but, better late than never. Don’t you think? ;). Toruń Festival was taking place for the fifth time, and like every year it is in the last weekend of June. For me, it was the very first time there. I was thinking to go to the festival for at last two years now. However, Toruń Festival’s date so far was colliding with another event, which was for me a long time tradition and number one priority. And now random fact about me: as huge old school reggae and ska fan I would not miss This is Ska Festival in Rosslau, Germany for the world!. This is …

Bright flame on the wind

Small break on the blog. Sorry for that. The last week was crazy busy for me. I was prepering for two events. First, good old Herohammer battle against Dwarfs and second, small tournament of WHFB 8th edition. My Skaven needed some few tweaks – bases, banners, or just simple corrections of my old painting job… …not to mentioning – whole regiment of Plague Monks were simply unpainted. Yeah, busy week… but it all turned out perfectly – I  lost all battles, but my minis did well. All painted and willing to die… sorry, fight. Reports will come to Game of Travel soon. Now, everything relaxed a little. No hurry, no deadlines, no need to paint Skaven anymore (at least for now). I can paint whatever I want. I have few ideas, but first… the model I painted right before Skaven rush. Warhammer Fantasy Bright Wizard. Part of two miniatures blister I bought some time ago. First wizard – from Amethyst Collage, you can see here. And the second – Bright Collage of Magic, painted about …

The Wight King

Few months ago I had this uncontrolled urge to buy miniature. Well, to be frank, I got this all the time 9who hasn’t? :), but now I buy miniatures I really need, or at least I think I need:). But few months ago – I was totally out of control. I saw bargains almost everywhere – and well, there were maybe steep discount, true that, but if I really needed so many Warhammer Fantasy Battle Empire models? Or this Wight King I painted last week? The answer is: I don’t have a clue:). The truth is, I really like to paint. It is recently my only leisure activity – I paint few hours a day, sometimes even longer. Sometimes, strolling across internet I stumble upon some sweet deal – I can’t resist – I imagine how cool I could paint that model and it everything else is too blurry – bid, add to the card, pay… and all of the sudden I have this Wight King in my collection, not entirely sure how I could …
