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 …

Interview with Sebastian Makowski – owner of Micro Art Studio

Few weeks ago I had a pleasure to visit Micro Art Studio in Gdynia, Poland. I saw the company from inside, I had nice chat with guys from Micro Art Studio, producer of Wolsung, Discworld miniatures and many gaming accessories. I also had the most awesome game of Wolsung Skirmish Game, with Łukasz – one of the creators of the game. What was super cool I got the opportunity to ask few questions to Sebastian Makowski – boss of Micro Art Studio. We were talking about past, present and future of the company. Please, take a read:) Me: What are the beginnings of Micro Art Studio? Sebastian Makowski: In 2005 I officially started my company called Micro Art Studio. So it’s 10 years now… It happened that I always was passionate about miniatures and miniature games. I did lots of commission paintings. Right now the time has changed and we don’t do this anymore. The market has fluctuated, prices have changed and, I think it’s not that profitable anymore. And the very beginning of Micro …

Bases, bases, bases! Lots of bases!

Few weeks ago I’ve ordered a handful of resin bases from Micro Art Studio and finally later last week I’ve received my package! I’m happy as a  small boy. Finally most of my miniatures will have proper bases. Of course, right now it’s going to be loads of work with pining and glueing minis to the bases (not to mention painting them), but I can assume it’s going to be fun work:). And what’s more important it will be very rewarding – everything I was doing for past few months (or even years now) will be finally finish… I just need some time:). So, what exactly bases I got from Micro Art Studio? Let’s take a look:) Blood Angels (Warhammer 40000) I was thinking how to base my Blood Angels for quite a some time. I had few options in mind – wilderness, wasteland or maybe more urban environment. After short consideration I’ve decided to go with Tech Bases from Micro Art Studio. They are of course so deep SF, as you can even imagine, …

Lady Ellendeanne from Wolsung Skrimish Game ready!

Finally in Europe. First I’ve been in Madrid for 6 days in Ibis Budget Hotel. Ibis is almost second home for me – I was using Ibis Hotels network so many times and the decor of the room everywhere is the same. You feel kind of relief, when you enter the room, wherever you are it’s similar – like I wrote second home:). Just few days there and we were headed to Warsaw. What’s the best in Ibis Hotel, the light in the room is perfect for painting miniatures. During the day – big window, so the room is floodlit with sunlight. And the evening – finally some accurate lamp over the desk. It was perfect prelude to my stay in Poland, where I finally can arrange most optimal conditions. I hadn’t much time to paint last week – I never been in Madrid before, so beside work – me and my wife decided to do some sightseeing. Of course it was perfect excuse to visit two wargaming stores there (about this – next time). …

Discworld will go on.

Usually when someone famous die, I’m not sad. I can’t be. I don’t have any feelings to that person, no personal attachment. What I feel, is some kind of confusion – It makes to ask myself and think: that person is really dead? Wow, I’m getting old – time is really marching on. Dead of Terry Pratchett though has affected me more than usual. He was one of my favourite writers, and I read almost all of his books, and even though I didn’t know  Terry Pratchett personally, I’m lost and confused with my life more than usual. Terry Pratchett and his work were with me during most of my life. I have read first Discworld series book ‘ Colour of Magic’ in 1994. It was published in parts in Polish magazine ‘Nowa Fantastyka’. I remember, I didn’t like it at first – it was too strange for me. I didn’t accept the style of Terry Pratchett and form of writing he used for the book. Mixture of hard fantasy and traditional British way of …
