  2. 2017 Spring Exchange

    For the people sending packages to Europe. Please don't put a large value on the package. Customs picks out those and the recipient will have to pay a customs charge and value added tax on it! Together about 30% of the value you put on the package.
  3. 2017 Spring Exchange

    Mini is on its way. Did not have the time to take pictures. I hope my Exchange partner can post some.
  4. 2017 Spring Exchange

    I selected and primed the mini, but I might be a bit later than usual. I am dealing with the death of my father at the moment. My apologies to my exchange partner...

  6. A bit late Christmas mouslings

    I had planned to do a bunch of mouselings in november and december.. but work got in the way. I never had a more busy and stressfull december than this year. But in the end I managed to finish two sets... just to late to hang in the Christmas tree.. 😊
  7. 03205: Friar Stone on a bridge

    Finally finished the Friar. The mini reminded me of a Japanese painting of a monk, so I made my own interpretation of the painting. The bridge and tree I made myself. I am happy how it turned out.
  8. 03205: Friar Stone on a bridge

    I got it in a trade show in the Netherlands.
  9. 03205: Friar Stone on a bridge

    The top of the tree is a real branch of a tree of bush. You can get it from Noch (natural trees). I added pink flock for the blossoms.
  10. 03205: Friar Stone on a bridge

    Some progress, mostly plants, and the river is clear now. The glue is still drying, so there is some white between the plants.
  11. I have been working on this mini for the last weeks. I did not have a lot of time to paint and forgot to make a wip.. The first time I saw the Friar I was reminded of a painting I saw a long time ago of a Japanese monk on a bridge. So I painted him as a monk and made a bridge out of balsa and plastic card. I also wanted a tree with blossoms. The tree took a few tries before I was happy with it. The Friar wip. Building the base Trees tries 1 and 2 The final tree Added stones and sand to the base and base colors Added blossom to the tree and added the water to the stream More to follow later...
  12. My first medal for painting

    This weekend I was at the scale-model challenge in the Netherlands. I had entered the painting competition in the fantasy beginners category. The level of painting was very high with competitors from mostly Europe, but there were also people from Japan and Singapore. It was my first competition. I won a bronze medal! The show offs for the minis I entered are here: 03665: Ostarzha, FemaleElf Cleric in Winter Cathedral of the Forest
  13. I painted the rabbit ranger from Dark Sword miniatures for Jasper_the_2nd for a mini exchange. Unfortunately the ball was damaged in transport, but the mini and the base were still intact. Happy how the forest autumn theme turned out...
  14. Short Wars (Hobbits and Goblins)

    The halflings and goblins are OK.. but... Hat Wearing Rubber Duckies!
  15. When I asked my girlfriend witch mini to paint she choose Ostarzha. It is a very elegant sculpt and a joy to paint. I tried a to paint it very light, almost pastel colors. The combination of colors I am very happy with. The wall is carved out of styrodur foam. A new technique for me. The foam is lightweight and easy to shape but a bit fragile. Also, don't use spray primer on it.. It melts.. This is also the first mini I have done with snow. I like the effect, but the snow is a bit difficult to control where it settles. The snow I used is from Krycell and is a powder. You first spray the base with sealer or lacquer and then sprinkle the snow on top. It worked better on the back of the wall then the front. The sphere in the picture is just temporary, I still have to make a stand for it. This is the base without the snow.
