CHAOS IN CARPATHIA, rise of the Vampires

Ahoy!

some time ago I started painting miniatures for a game called Chaos in Carpathia – http://chestofcolors.com/chaos-in-carpathia/

Although I still haven’t played any game with them, I just love the miniatures and it brings me tons of joy to paint them. This time I have painted some vampires.

Something worth fighting for – treasure markers

Ahoy,

in all games there is a objective to fulfill. In many cases our armies/ war bands fight for treasures. For this purpose I made those treasure markers.

Simple to create, I was just playing with bits from bits box and glued them on a plasticard. They come from companies:

Saint Anna (fresco from Faras)

Saint Anna – Nubian fresco dating from the 8th to the first half of the 9th century, made with tempera on mud plaster in al secco technique. An anonymous work was found at the Faras Cathedral in former Nubia, Sudan today.

Inspired by a painter The Mad Hamster’s blog I decided to give myself a try and painting something completely new. Basically a simple freehand on a slice of onyx stone.

Apart from models, figures, traditional beer, precels and weißwürst there were lots of additional activities for children! Yes, this event concentrates not only on nerds but mostly on young hobby adepts. There were many attractions for them like:

Star Wars®-Truppe

And of course the show mit many plastic models and some miniatures.  There could have been more entries in the contest, but you had to pay 2€ for every miniature you enter …  Why limit the people who want to enter more? I always thought the more entries, the more everyone should be happy. Strange logic to me.

Although a small event me and my family had great time. You can see the organizers have concentrated themselves on attracting younger people with the hobby.
