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 …

Letters to The Blood God

Hey again! Everything is splendid here. Working slowly over my new project (pictures soon) and meanwhile I have my another finished project. Today, my beloved daemons of entire Warhammer Universe – The Bloodletters of Khorne! I was big fan of Khorne daemons since 4th WHFB edition and Chaos box set. I was pretty new to Warhammer setting, and Chaos was…simply…wow! All photos and illustrations were pretty big deal for me. Unfortunately, I was a young teenager with no funds to collect several armies at the same time (I was Dwarf guy these days), and Chaos was something out of my reach. Until release of 5th edition box – Realm of Chaos. That was a few years later, I got my first job and I can spend some extra money to get latest models of beastmen and daemons. Especially, this illustration by Mark Gibbons caught my attention. Yeah, late 1990s were Chaos years for me thanks to this guy:) Oh, man! The Bloodthrister daemon was a big deal for me! I bought one, and then the …

Latest addition to my Blood Angels

Oh my, it was a long break. So much stuff to do (not necessary hobby related), and this blog was sent deep into oblivion. The priorities unfortunately were somewhere else. However, I haven’t made complete break from miniatures. I’m kind of addicted to painting them, so almost every day I sit over my workstation, lick my brushes and try to make something colourful. And during last few months I was able to paint quite a bunch of miniatures, and only gods know why I haven’t post them here. I was so overworked, and burnt out a bit, so the blog lost a priority, I guess. Anyway, I have a few models to brag about, so prepare for series of posts about my recent paint jobs. Starting now. First – latest squad for my Blood Angels army – Tactical Squad. I painted them a few weeks ago, and back then I was fresh after a couple of games of Warhammer 40k. Shameful games. Shameful because my army was unpainted. What a disgrace! I was justifying myself, …

Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Raven Guard (2000 points)

And the next battle report here. Warhammer 40000. My Blood Angels (once again) versus Raven Guard (commanded by my friend Miłosz). 2000 points. Game played as a part of ‘Fading Suns of Corinth Sector’ campaign. Unfortunately not all models were painted (especially on my side. shame on me), but I joined this campaign to train my Wh40k skills and I was so eager to do it, so I skipped my ‘only painted models’ resolution. Well, it was a choice:  this or I should wait another year or two (by looking at my progress in painting Warhammer 40000 miniatures). This is the last report with unpainted models. No more. Time to implement more strict policy. 2017’s resolution. The game was played in October 2016 in Faber Hobby Store in Warsaw, Poland. Scenario – Relics Gravity distortions and launch of next Necron generators had significant influence on the weather and tectonic movements. The whole continent were struck by terrible storms, strong winds and earthquakes. Each of the factions were after the answers, helping to understand those anomalies, …

Battle Report: Warhammer 40k – Blood Angels vs Imperial Guard (1250 points)

Another battle report. This time I’m back to Warhammer 40k universe to lead my Blood Angels against forces of Astra Militarum run by my friend Janek. We played in Warsaw hobby store: Bunkier. The battle itself was the part of ‘Fading Suns of Corinth Sector‘ campaign I joined to practice my Warhammer 40000 skills.  My army is not ready to be played yet. Majority of models are not painted and there shouldn’t be presented on the tabletop in any way. However, I thought if I would play in this campaign, I can made a painting challenge out of it. Simple one. Between the battles add some more painted models to the fielded force. Each battle – more and more. And eventually in final battle, The Blood Angels will be fully painted. Unfortunately, life writes different scenarios, and I got distracted by other miniatures, and I completely abandoned The Space Marines. It happens to me all the time. Too many cool models to be painted,no way to concentrate on one army… and therefore, I failed my …

Blood Angels Rhino

It has been quite some time since I was  painting anything for my Blood Angels Army. And recently I had a opportunity to take a quick glance at the state of my Space Marines. Well, they don’t look impressive. In April this year I started painting challenge when I entered the campaign with my Blood Angels. The idea was to paint at least one more squad/vehicle/character before the next battle of the campaign starts. This way, in every subsequent battle of the campaign, more and more of my army will be painted and eventually all of Blood Angels will see red. That was the plan… …but you know how it is with the plans. They never work. Well, maybe not every plan, but painting challenges? Not in my case. There too many awesome miniatures to paint in my collection, just to focus my efforts on only one type, and to coordinate all my efforts to paint exactly one mini until the deadline – it seems to impossible. So, let’s be honest – this whole Blood …

Back to Painting Fever

Hey hello! Finally! I’m back! After all these barren weeks with no brush in my hands, I got back on the right track again! Recent month were really crazy for me. I moved to Barcelona and this happened to be a quite time consuming enterprise. 2500 km drive by car, looking for a proper flat, arranging all paperworks issues, and finally connecting the internet. And bam! Yesterday, finally I managed to set up new workstation in my new home. For now it’s little bit rough – simply I took over a table and a chair, but to be frank I worked in way worse conditions. When the dust will settle, I’ll look for proper furnitures. For now…it’s enough – and I’m so excited to be able to paint again! So, it’s time to sum up my recent paint jobs. The first is… Vampire Count von Carstein What an awful model. Straight from 6th edition of WHFB era. The era where many the best models come from, but at the same time the worst as well. …
