Geheimnistag, or Deathmaster Snikch’s scenic base

Geheimnistag, also known as Geheimnisnacht Eve is a day in the calendar of the Warhammer world that marks the time of the full moon. This holiday does not fall on any particular day of the calendar; the Day of Mystery, also called the “Floating Holiday”, occurs when the twin moons Morrslieb and Mannslieb are both full in the sky. This occurs only once per year and is considered a time when the veil between worlds becomes thin, sometimes dangerously so.

Diorama or extended scenic base?

This model started as a commissioned scenic base for Deathmaster Snikch. And somehow it grew to be more than just this. 😀
But the positive thing is that’s how you can admire this scene now:

While Deathmaster Snikch seems to be just a minor part of the whole Geheimnistag scene now, you can see he’s still there. Prowling in the night.

Take a moment to check out the photos below. They will show you some more details of the Geheimnistag diorama.

Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps miniatures

Recently we had a chance to paint an interesting set of miniatures for the Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps boardgame.

This project was interesting thanks to the fact that we had a chance to combine the creative powers of two painters and display two quality levels in one subject.

So some miniatures, considered more important by the customer, were assigned for a level 2 paintjob, while the remaining ones were left for level 1.

Do you recognize these characters from Aliens?

Here is the whole group with level 1 miniatures on the left and level 2 miniatures on the right. The power lifter is level 1 as well.

Rejven did the miniatures at level 2. They got detailed camouflage, some detailing and a bit of weathering.

You can see some more photos of these models here:

They look pretty good for a level 2 job, don’t they?

Level 1 miniatures

Now if you want to see the level 1 part of the set, the way Thymos.Theos painted them, here they are:

Bearing in mind that level 1 is our basic quality, they are really good for gaming models!

Finished project

And to close this post, here is another family photo of the whole group:

We were happy with how they turned out, and apparently so was the owner of these models, who said:

Wow, they look fantastic 🙂
Thank you for the excellent work and the personal way you’ve dealt with me via email.
I’ll be sure to write you guys a great review.
