The wise hermit, the old headmaster or the stargazing prophet. The fantasy genre is full of powerful wizards casting lightning bolts, killing dragons and setting pine cones ablaze. They can have any form and color, but also have many things in common.
Let’s see what our painters made out of this iconic magic wielder…(more…)
Happy Halloween! We hope you had some fun moments or at least heaps of candy – we celebrated indoors and our son delightfully wore his new “Princess Celestia”* costume the whole weekend.
And guess what, we even had time to do a little bit of painting! Come and check out the results!
*Yes, the magical alicorn from My little Pony. Some might see that as scary in itself, but he absolutely loved it.(more…)
Halloween is near, and the vampires are rising from their crypts! Have a look (if you dare)…!(more…)
At last, the final chapter of Gauth is here. Read on to see this mighty monsters in all their glory. We can present at least 3 of the 5 chromatic dragons.(more…)
Finally, here are some big, nasty dragon WIPs. And because life always keeps something up its sleeve, read on to find out about some less than stellar things that happened *sigh*(more…)
Dear readers, although I was – for a while – caught in the delusion I could manage a more or less regular schedule in anything despite the fact that my toddler’s daycare is closed until mid-August, I’m awake now. I mean, totally sleep deprived, but not longer under the impression I could manage anything with Dirk working extra hours, all babysitting relatives leaving for the holidays and said toddler being just unwell enough to
forget everything he knew about potty training need all the nerves I got left.
So, in order to keep the rest of my sanity and not to over-stretch your patience because you are waiting for belated postings every time, I’ll just move the whole mini schedule a couple of weeks into the future.
I’m sorry about that because I like to keep my schedules and always want to be punctual and stuff. Maybe a German thing? Anyways, use the time to relax, if you can, maybe paint stuff in advance… I hope think I can add a couple more miniatures to the list, please email me or comment if you have ideas and wishes! There’s still a lot of stuff left in the Underdark expansion, more elves, adventurers, demons from the core…?
Have a great summer, stay safe and keep your brushes busy!
The new schedule is below the break:(more…)
Since we don’t want to be the only creatures around that stumble and shuffle about, always feeling they just awakened from a eternal slumber and should just have stayed in bed, let’s have a look at some
tired parents mummies this week!
Dear readers and miniature painters, since in Corona times toddlers with runny noses aren’t allowed in daycare*, all our schedules got a bit mixed up and our next article will come out the following monday (ie one week later than planned). But runny noses, shaken nerves and lost sleep aside we are fine. I hope you are, too!
Stay safe and keep on painting, see you next week!
*I know! You would think the nursery would be completely empty, right? But obviously there are still a handful of dry noses around. Outdoor nurseries boost the immune system, I guess.
There are a lot of dangerous creatures that a group of adventurers might encounter in the caverns beneath their world, and this week, we take a look at some especially scary claws. Or was it horrifying hooks…?(more…)
