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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
Aventine Roman Dismounted Cavalry Charity Figure
After 2,5 months without hobby I was finally enabled to get some hours for brushing yesterday. Keith from Aventine has kindly given me some weeks ago this lovely mini, actually a door figure for Albanich 2013 show. In the meantime the miniature is available by Aventine in their web shop as charity item: http://www.aventineminiatures.co.uk/catalog/index.php?cPath=106 I’ve… Read more »
Archbishop and Warrior Priests
Some representative of the Holy Church of Witchtown. All o fthem are Lead Adventure Bruegelburg miniatures, though a few converted ones. They were a great fun to convert and to paint.
White Knights’ Dwarves and Pigs
Some White Knight dwarves and pigs arrived in Witchtown! Lovely figures and a great fun to paint!
Blacksmith Forge and more terrain
Just yesterday received a parcel from Grimm with some painted buildings. Good man, Grimm, love his work! and some shots with older scenery, this one made and painted by Jan Gross (Lt.Hazel) and here just a little scene
Done. Now I like it.
weathering of a pre-painted house
I was always a bit unhappy with one of my medieval houses. I’ve bough tthis one years ago, it’s from “The Miniature Building Authority”. It came pre-painted and the photos depict the house just as it is, with pre-paint. I like the concept of the house but the painting is a bit too flat for my… Read more »
in the backyards of Witchtown
Some kind of foul deeds are going on in the backyards of Witchtown… but Witchtown without Witches? No way! The big witch is from Westwind, they have a pack with three or four (?) witches, it’s one of the sets without photo on Westwind’s site, all the witches are typically big, have nice action poses and looks very… Read more »
gallic allied cavalry
Another bunch arrived on my workbench, my recent ebay purchase, the Gauls. 12 of them. As soon as I have finished some more of the legionaries, they will be in for painting. though it looks like the Gauls had better and bigger horses than the Germans, here is a comparison picture, both horses are Foundry,… Read more »

ancient german cavalry
These riders are a part of my current Ancient Germania project. Actually the last part for the time being, the rest of the German gang it’s there – click. I’ve bought these Foundry cavalry blister about 10 years ago, being a fanboy of Copplestone’s sculpting work and never gave up the hope to paint them one day…. Read more »
Views of Witchtown
Late Repiblican Romans
I think these are my first Late Republican romans at all. Copplesone Foundry, still the best range out there for the topic. The picture wasmade for the Lead painters League on LAF, Round Two.

A new Lead Painters League at LAF has been started and here we go with the first entry of mine – “At the Barn”. I will be trying to keep all my entries this time to the Ancients topic. These are Black Tree Designs Celts, really nice figures, easy and useful.
