What a ride it was! (The team is growing)

Despite the global trend of social distancing and isolation, we’re going in the opposite direction – we are socializing and expanding the team!

You may wonder how and why. Well, that’s a story for sure. Let me tell you, briefly.

Three-years-long adventure

For nearly three last years we have been cooperating with Mixed Dimensions, and quite a ride it was! Wow, we have been thrown into the world of international corporations, big businesses, gaming companies and modern technologies. While it was exhausting and kept us busy for most of the time (as you could easily notice by our reduced internet presence), we’ve built a crazy team of artists, and learned a lot.

Production of large-scale statues for Mixed Dimensions

After the project was closed, we were richer in so many ways! We were very experienced about 3d printing. We learned how to cast models – from small miniatures to large statues or terrain pieces. We knew about prototyping, creating master models and master paintjobs for reference for further production. We built efficient processes of painting both individual and unique projects and standardized projects, where one is difficult to tell from another. We had people who could coordinate those tasks, and people who could follow such directions like a charm!

Moving forward

So what do we want to do with the knowledge and skills we acquired? We want to expand the scope of our operations and services we offer.

Prototyping a model for Mixed Dimensions

Soon I will be writing more about these matters, so you can get a glimpse behind the courtains (well, only as much as we can uncover things), but for now let me tell you what it can mean to you.

What’s new?

Previously we were mainly a group of painters, now we have a fully trained teams of modelers and diorama builders.

Example of a diorama designed by Benathai

Previously we had nothing to do with 3d printing or casting models, now we can boast some serious 3d printing and casting expertise.

Previously we mainly focused on individual models, usually display quality ones. Now we can efficiently paint a large coherent project, like an army or collection.

New workflow allows for efficient, coordinated handling of larger and coherent-looking projects

Previously our prices were mainly tailored for high-end collectors, now we can offer much more affordable options, thanks to the optimized workflow.

Finally, previously we dealt mainly with private collectors, but now we have experience in working with companies, business partners and institutions. Prototyping, preparing for production, creating anything from single copies to long production runs is now possible!

The team is expanding!

In addition to this, we can announce that our team has expanded, and we would like to introduce three new artists joining our ranks: Amalryk and Thymos.Theos being mainly painters, and Calamity, whose field of expertise is construction of dioramas, scenic bases, conversions and other modeling works. They will get more of an introduction soon (with their bios and galleries), but for now I just wanted to tell you that the family is growing bigger. 🙂

Calamity at work

All of them are great artists with a lot of individual style and their own preferences, but they have also been trained by Ańa to work as a team, like a well-oiled machine when needed.

There’s more…

And yes, there’s more to tell you about, but I don’t want to make this one too long. Instead I will just share a few more posts with you, detailing the parts you may be interested in, so stay tuned, keep your fingers crossed for us, and if here is any interesting project you would like to work with us on, just contact us and let’s discuss it. Maybe you find our work style suitable for your needs! 🙂

After all, it’s good to be back home! 😀

Just a certain Genghis…

Recently we have received quite a few inquiries to paint some Hero Forge miniatures. More than before, which was already pretty surprising.

Honestly speaking we don’t know the reason, was it because of the Hero Forge miniatures Benathai painted before? Or because of the fact he did some for the very company. Regardless of the reasons, here is another one – a certain character inspired by the world of Conan.

The model was painted by Rejven, who he was too shy to post it here. However, we think it would be a shame to let it go unnoticed, so here a few more pictures:

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. 🙂
