First Congo Game

Some friends and me played our first Congo game last month. I’ve made some shots, sorry, not the best ones and not too many, we’ve spent a lot of time checking the rules and learning how to play. Nevertheless we had a great time playing this game and enjoyed the evening. Now I’m quite hooked… Read more »

RAFM Skeletal Troll

My first post in this year, not much but something I like a lot, a miniature sculpted by Bob Murch back in those days as he was working for RAFM. Bob did some really amazing miniatures for them, I particularly love their Undead range which is full of gems like this one. Btw, It’s also… Read more »

The Pikes, Muskets and Flouncy Shirts Painting Club and TYW

LPL is over, long live The Pikes, Muskets and Flouncy Shirts Painting Club! A new challenge over on LAF, a nice opportunity to decompress after the depths of LPL :) Missing out on all that fun would be of course out of question for me and so I jumped in. Some time ago, I was infected… Read more »

Space Hulk

Well, the Lead Painters league Season 10 is over. I’m kind of sad about it, it has been a significant part of my hobby life for the last months, including the winter time before the season that I’ve spent painting this huge lot of figures. But everything comes to an ende at some point and… Read more »

The Bedlam Brotherhood

As you probably noticed, I’m a guy with many interests across our beloved hobby. One of them, of course, is the dark corner called Gothic Horror. Although it’s been a while since I’ve painted something going into this scary direction. And thus I’ve thought the LPL this year would be a nice opportunity to revamp this genre… Read more »

In the Holy Land

A new topic on this blog, just back from the ninth round of LPL , finally something historical again! The 1st Crusade. For this one I’ve painted three of Perry packs from their beautiful 1st Crusade range. Some connection to one of my previous LPL entries can probably be seen. I sincerely hope that I’ll… Read more »

Somewhere in Manchuria

Kind of a large update today with a lot of newly painted miniatures and new terrain. First I have to thank to a nice LAF fellow Hombre who built for me all that new beautiful stuff used in this scene. The houses are loosely based on the buildings from the movie The Good, the Bad,… Read more »

The Landing Party

This week a bit more of science fiction – The Landing Party. This was my LPL entry for the Round 7. The idea was born with that old Perry Rhodan space ship model kit you can see in the background of the picture. I wanted to have it in one of my LPL entries and… Read more »

The Galaxy Council

Last week at LPL I’ve brought a change into my usual choice of themes and tried it with a sci-fi setting. Over the years I’ve collected a lot of various sci-fi miniatures and LPL seemed to me to be a nice opportunity to get painted at least some of them. The beginning of the idea… Read more »

Zum Hexenwald

Last week at LPL I’ve decided to go with some pulpish stuff and created a scene with kinda military accent. I’ve used a wild mix of figures from different manufacturers like Copplestone, Great War Miniatures, Eureka, Pulp Figures, Lead Adventure Miniatures, Artizan and Westwind. One of the figures I even couldn’t identify (the guy with… Read more »

  • The arriving of the Black Plague

    Oh dear, my first big Kickstarter. I really did it, so yes, I’m guilty as charged. But I really couldn’t withstand, that Zombies-Fantasy-Middle-Age-whatever-stuff-idea struck quite a chord with me. And today unexpectedly the postman has brought the basis box today, seemingly all the goals and extras are still in work by the CMON guys. Didn’t played… Read more »

  • Hellboy

    Well, it’s not the first time I painted  a Hellboy but this is the first one I like. If you wonder, just check the BPRD gallery on my my old blog. This version is bigger, stronger, actually it’s 40mm and he looks much like a badass compared to the skinny old Heroclix one. I’ve painted him for the Weird Wars Painting… Read more »

  • A king and a cannon

    Another Sunday and another photo shooting session for my Africa table. After last update I’ve been asked how I do achieve that the terrain looks that good and almost realistic. Honestly, I have no easy answer. First of all, of course, you need some top notch terrain and the most of the terrain credits here… Read more »

  • Captain Krustache of Kashgar

    Captain Krustache of Kashgar; explorer, geographer, discoverer of lost cities and mustache cultivator! That is this year’s Movember charity miniature of Pulp Figures, sculpted by Bob Murch. At the time Bob is very busy sculpting native American Indians (and soon also some spirit creatures according to his statement on Facebook today) for his coming game and… Read more »

  • Congo!

    Some weeks ago, the guys from the Studio Tomahawk asked me for some Africa scenery pictures for their coming rule set Congo, so of course I was happy to be of help and also to have the opportunity to make finally some proper photos of my Africa collection. Over the years I’ve painted  lofs of Africa… Read more »

  • Projekt X

    A new painting club has been started over on LAF – The Weird Wars Painting Club. As always it’s about painting of 100 miniatures by members of the forum. Being in a good painting mood, I’ve joined in and already contributed four miniatures from Northstar’s Projekt X range. Great opportunity to paint them finally, I’ve actually started… Read more »

  • Slave Caravan

    Clearing backlog today and presenting some miniatures painted last spring for the Lead Painters League, some Baluchi/Arab Slavers. I also wanted to use the opportunity and to make photos of other older Africa stuff, scattered through the various forums and blogs and never photographed properly. But first let’s have a look at the LPL entry… Read more »

  • More living space in Witchtown!

    Today no new figures but houses. They have been panted for me by a good friend of mine Jan Gross (also known as Lt.Hazel on several forums). I’m not that often into painting terrain, just not patient enough and every time I have an opportunity  to get some of the stuff painted by my friends, I… Read more »

  • The Walking Dead in Witchtown

    Back from Greece, full of ideas and longing for some days of just painting. Since in the last weeks I’ve watched a few seasons of the TV show “The Walking Dead” I’m  totally drawn into all things Zombies. For today three new ones, coming from the Mordheim pack, as far as I know, not more… Read more »

  • Down to the catacombs of Witchtown

    Since every town in a fantasy world needs some proper catacombs, just to provide an additonal battlefield for the evil guys, their minions and all the would-be-heroes, it’s been a matter of time before Witchtown opened the gates to an own dungeon. Okay, admitted, it also was a financial matter as I’ve been too lazy to build… Read more »

  • A giant comes by

    As I’ve mentioned and promised before, in my last post, today we are discussing about a particular species, namely Giants. I like giants, I’m sure I’ve told that to you  and I like to paint them or just to have them. I’ve bought a lot of these big chaps in all the hobby years and if you want to… Read more »

  • The Big Haul

    This update has been a while in the waiting queue, actually I’ve painted most of the miniatures for the LPL some months ago but as usual taking photos can take a while. Nevertheless here we go with some fantasy adventurers and I’m happy to show you the beginning of my Otherworld collection. Otherworld Miniatures is… Read more »

  • Victor Zsasz and Scarecrow

    Very busy at work and weekends these days, nevertheless managed to take pictures of two notorius Gotham or rather Arkham guys – Victor Zsasz and Scarecrow. A murder and a madman, what more do you need for proper nightmares?! Victor with his Arkham lunatics.. Scarecrow Victor again.. Batman v. Scarecrow Victor vs. Joker and finally… Read more »

  • Lunatics

    What a relief to be able to paint again. I’ve had a break due to a business travel to a country far, far away and after coming back I really wasn’t able to continue the painwork due to the never ending heat in the South Germany and too many good series at Netflix. But this… Read more »

  • The Dark Knight of Arkham

    Done! I’ve painted my first miniature of Batman, yeah! I’m so glad because I was a bit struggling to start him but once started, it went on. Looking for a color scheme, my first idea was one of a completely black Batman, like in the recent movies but miniatures painted completely black can sometimes look a… Read more »
