Tiny metal steam dragons

I found very little time to paint during past few days. I needed to catch up with my daily work (which thankfully I can do online sitting in Thailand on tropical island:))… but it had to change finally. I need to paint – it is probably one addiction I have. No booze, no drugs, just a sweet taste of acrylic paint on the tip of my brush (yes, I admit – I’m brush licker:). …so, after few days of break I set up my paint station in brand new place again (this time – Koh Chang) and start paint. And I needed something easy and quick to get back on track. These small steampunk dragons from Wolsung (Triad of Lotus Dragon faction) were just perfect for that. These three Golemic Dragonlings are super cute. This kind of dangerous cute, if you know what I mean. It happens from time to time – when a hero encounters some cute creature which at some point all of the sudden is crazy killing machine. Something like rabbits from …

Hello, Cousin Jim. Long time no see, Wolsung.

And another miniature finished. After quite demanding Blood Angels Sanguinary Priest, I wanted to paint something easier, just to have fun, but also not spending too much time working on the model. So, my pick for this week – Distant Relative from province – Cousin Jim for Ash & Oak faction, Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish game. I had quite a long break from Wolsung. The last miniature I painted was Mary Fearless and it was in July (photos under the link). And to be honest I thought all my plans about Wolsung will turn up rather different way than right now. I supposed to paint just 2 or 3 miniatures more to complete my 3 heroes band and play two or three games before my departure to Australia. Well, everything got complicated – I tried to juggle between too many projects at the same time and eventually I was forced to give up on something. Fate decided that Wolsung’s Ash and Oak will be one of these projects (along with Nomads for Infinity the Game and …

Interview with Łukasz Perzanowski – creator of Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish Game

If you read my blog for some time, You probably have noticed that I really like Wolsung skirmish game. I really like models and the fluff – for me it is a proper steampunk game. The game I was looking for quite some time. Few weeks ago I had a pleasure to visit HQ of Micro Art Studio in Gdynia, Poland- producer of Wolsung game. I have played nice game with Łukasz Perzanowski, one of creators of Wolsung. I got short tour around the place and what is most important I had the opportunity to talk with Sebastian Makowski – boss of Micro Art Studio. Big thank you for that! Now is the time for the last part of material I brought back from Gdynia – interview with Łukasz – the guy who was making the rules for Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish game. Have a read! Me: How exactly Wolsung Skirmish Game was born? Łukasz: It all has started in 2011… I think… or little bit earlier. Sebastian Makowski, the boss of Micro Art Studio simply …

Wolsung Ash & Oak – Mary Fearless

What a nice change! There were lots of rats recently in blog. Skaven this, Skaven that. Skaven everywhere. Wow, you probably won’t believe me I have plenty of other miniatures from various systems to paint, and therefore to play some day (read: as soon as I paint them:). But for some unknown reason I’ve concentrated all my efforts on on Skaven in recent days. I’ve finished my around 1250 points army in the beginning of June, and that should be enough. I should start painting something else, but right before every upcoming battle, I had this thought in my mind: oh, I must use this miniature, or this one – it’s the last one –  no more. And right now, we have end of July and I’m still painting mostly Skaven… but now I promised myself (again) – that’s it. No more…I’ve cut out, primed and magnetised Blood Angels Terminators and they are ready… but right after that, I got the message from my friend asking me for re-match against his Empire – and I’ll be …

Battle Report – Wolsung: Ash and Oak vs The Inventors

Last week I had great weekend in Gdańsk, north of Poland, right on the coast of Balitc Sea. Despite the weather conditions I had wonderful time there. As always, when I visit some new place I try to contact and meet local wargaming community…but this time all was exceptional… When me and my wife have confirmed the exact date of our visit at Baltic Sea, I got this idea to write an e-mail to Micro Art Studio, producer of Wolsung Steampunk Skirmish Game, which HQ is located in Gdynia (it’s very close to Gdańsk) – all in the same metropolitan area. I could not missed that chance to visit them – being so near. Imagine my surprise I got positive response and they invited me to Micro Art Studio and agree for small interview with the boss (I even conducted two interviews, but about this later:)… …I also got the opportunity to play small game of Wolsung with one of the game creators  – Łukasz Perzanowski. Oh, I got super exited! In fact, we have …

Wolsung Ash & Oak – ready to play: Bruiser and Butlers

That’s it! I’ve done it today! I’ve finished my minimum of models needed to play Wolsung with my Ash & Oak faction!. Two heroes and four henchmen. They are ready for my tutorial game I’m going to have this Friday. My faction right now include: Lady Ellendeanne Sir Zachary Fiercebatten III ( and two hound dogs) Abinav Singh Bruiser Butler with Umblerra Butler with Plate I received my printed hardback copy of Wolsung rules last week and finally I had some chance to study them carefully. Even though they are available for free to download, I prefer to have printed release to read – it’s easier for me to sit right back with the book in my hands, and totally focus on the content. And what I was able to read so far – the rules are really simple to make a quick start. Simple, but not naive – options and special rules for factions give the player lots of different alternatives ways to go on with the game. It’s possible to try several approaches …

My Wolsung faction is growing strong! – Abinav Singh

Ok. I finally got great resin bases from Micro Art Studio and I can continue to paint miniatures, but right now I have proper measures to finish most of them completely (it means I finally have bases for them, yay:). In upcoming few days I have two appointed battles of Warhammer Fantasy Battle (still 8th edition) and the game of Wolsung Skirmish Game. For WHFB I justneed to finish few more models  – but nothing fancy or demanding (Assassin and Doomwheel). My bigger concern is about Wolsung game… Next Friday I’m going to learn how to play Wolsung and I want to make a demo or tutorial game with my own painted and based miniatures. I have printed version of the rulebook – I had quick read trough it – and I can say rules are easy but appealing. The game should be fast and exiting. I don’t have any clue if it’s true and how the rules going to work in actual game – time will tell. All I know, I’m going to learn …
