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. …

1st Oldhammer Weekend in Poland (17/18.09.2016)

Oh Yeah, you heard that right! We are doing this in Poland. To be exact, I’m only helping with this event, but it’s still going to be super cool. At the beginning, a few words of explanation. Original Oldhammer term is referring to the original 3rd edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle, which for many has the best wargaming spirit – wide selection of armies, complex rules and amazing miniatures. People playing Oldhammer these days are getting back to their youth, to to very start of their wargaming adventure. We would like to experience the same feeling. To get back to the very start of our hobby. The main issue is that the start of wargaming in Poland dates to the middle of 1990s, so  the 3rd edition was long time gone. It was 4th edition time and majority of the players in Poland who were starting back then has sentiments for 4th edition. Like me for instance, in about 1994, if I recall it correctly. The 4th edition was slowly ending, and soon 5th edition …

The Game of Dragon

Finally! At last! It’s over! It’s done! After many, many painting hours, I’ve managed to paint Carmine Dragon from Forge World. Oh, gosh! That was a challenge, I tell you! It took me almost forever to paint it. I started in end of May 2016 and sit for many hours to achieve the level I would be satisfied with. The idea of planting this model was planted in my head in May and slowly growing to eventually turned out with decision – OK. Let’s do this! I wanted to visit Festival of Miniature Painting and Sculpture in Toruń, Poland (last weekend of June), and I thought this dragon will be just right to paint and present at the festival. This would be perfect excuse to go there  I was thinking back then – I got 6 weeks to the festival, so it’s plenty of time to paint it at top notch level. Oh, how wrong I was! 6 weeks may seem like the time I could paint whatever I want, but like always I forgot …
