Mr Cheng, at your service.

I believe I haven’t painted any of my Wolsung miniatures for quite a some time. The last were Steam Powered Dragonlings, and look at that, I’ve painted them in December 2015 and it was in the same area I’m at the moment. Koh Chang in Thailand is a nice island, perfect stop whenever I’m back here. Just few hours from Bangkok, cheap accommodation, delicious food, perfect weather and proximity to the beach. The best place  to stay for my last month in Asia. So, I’m back on Koh Chang. The circle of life is complete;) I can go back to Wolsung again… This time let me show you another model for Triad of Lotus Dragon faction – Mr Cheng. Mr Cheng is one of the heroes of The Triad, and my first of this crew. Generally I have my first faction (Ash & Oak) fully prepared, more or less ready for play, and the time has come to start something new for Wolsung. The Triad of Lotus Dragon is one of the coolest faction. If …

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 …

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 …

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 …
