New Kids On The Block

While you might expect to read about the boy band from the 80s/90s, we have to disappoint you. We remain in the realm of miniature painting and instead of listening to catchy songs by NKOTB you will meet our two new team-mates: Kacpero and Rejven.

Kacpero
Kacpero

Kacpero used to be a member of our team already, until more important matters made it impossible to contribute here and to participate in life of our little community. Fortunatly now he is ready to join us again and we’re glad to have him back! He’s already an active participant of our workshops and events, so if you happen to attend to one of them you are very likely to meet him there.

Rejven
Rejven

Rejven is an old friend of our team, having worked at one of our local hobby stores and now becoming much more involved in the very hobby of painting miniatures. Definitely geeky enough to be added to our team, he is welcome here and we hope you’re going to enjoy his presence as well.

Without any unnecessary ado, let’s keep fingers crossed for them, so they don’t lose their initial motivation and enthusiasm. And let their works speak for themselves. 🙂

Mother Hermione’s Host part 1

I started painting new warband from Red Box Games – Mother Hermione’s Host. There will be 10 warriors in this warband. No more and no less. Ten will be the number of the Mother Hermione’s Host members and this number will be ten 🙂
So far I painted 3 miniatures: Darren the Mildly Disagreeable, Wry Gary and Farmer Fred. These are rather simple folks but they are backbone of every warband. They fight (and are being killed in most of the times) in the first line.

By the way, they are not Greeks 🙂 I just picked this white-blue paint scheme to distinguish them from my other existing and future warbands.

Stone Golem

Miniature Exchanges are always fun events. If you don’t know what they are, I’ll give you a short version of the rules – you paint a miniature as a surprise gift for someone and someone (not necessarily the same person) paints a mini for you. We had few Miniature Exchanges at the Chest of Colors forums few years ago and as I have said – they were fun!

I have recently decided to remind myself how fun Miniature Exchanges are and joined one held at the Reaper Miniatures forum. They had some additional rules there. One has to pick a Reaper mini to paint (obviously) and participants are allowed to make some requests for people painting for them (like “I don’t accept nude models” or “I’d love something for my dwarf army”).

My recipient, Robin from Canada, wished for a non-human model with some orange shade incorporated in a paintjob. After going through my collection of Reaper minis I picked a stone golem from the Bones range (might need to write more about Bones products someday)  and … well … I painted it. So, here it is, the stone golem, guardian of some ancient temple.
