Finaly done! Merevoginian and Jap starter armies

Hi everyone! Finaly, after two weeks im done with this little comission and im glad its behind me and as im saying every time i finish painting somethink for money, im done with comission, and this time i mean it;-) I just dont enjoy painting when its not for my pleasure and i really do not recommend this to anyone unless its for close friend and you owe him a favor like this case. I tried to keep good compromise between time spent/quality on miniatures as i agreed on about little more than half the price i ussualy charge(ahh these favors)and i hope it ll be enought to serve as miniatures for demo games at my favourite wargaming store. Yeah, these ll probably end horribly after couple of months of service and my personal opinion is they are painted just fine for their purpose. Right now i dont want to see infinity miniature for at least...well, at least till lunch when im planning to open one of the boxes with my reward for painting these two little armies. Have a nice rest of the weekend and thanks for visit!

Small Yu Jing Army almost done

Hello everyone, just took fast snap shot of what i have been doing yesterday and maybee its a right time to share the progress with you. I ve spent about 8 hours yesterday to paint all of these and have small yu jing army based around Japanese sectorial army starter set and have Japan part of the job almost done. I still have to paint Tokusets Butai medic and my job is basicaly done. Unfortunately japanese sectorial box was missing one of the miniature so i ll have to make a little addition later.
Quality is not as good as in case of my small french gang as white/red combo is probably worst of what could occur on work bench as i hate working with these two colours, but what can you do when owner of figures insist on original colours even when noticed its not going to end great? However these pieces ll serve for in store demo games purposes and ll probably get worned off realy fast so i hope they are in sufficent quality to show customers there is "new" game around. Still have to do some corrections, make bases and i think the end ressult ll be just fine for its purpose. Thanks for visit and have a nice weekned!

Calculating Infinity

This was not planned! And allong with the pile there is plastic bag full of unpacked models to add to my quee:-o As you see, im flooded by models i was not expecting at all and was thinking i ll finish my grey knights for the event i want to attend in less than two months. Instead of that i have table full of work and that means i ll be finishing GKs on last minute. But why is that?
I ve been asked by friends to paint two small infinity armies for their wargaming store in Prague and i said yes. Ussualy i dont take comissions on figures as i dont think im that good to fullfill customers expectation but this was different as friend asked for this favour and i just did not wanted to say "no, gtfo" in addition they are not expecting super quality paintjob as miniatures ll be used to play demo games so they ll probably wear and scratch of paint quickly so all i have to do is to keep standart i ve set this weekend working on the french sectorial starter.
So whats on to do list? Small Japanese Sectorial Army consisting of:

Japanese sectorial Army box
Arogato Senkenbutai bikes
and Tokusetsu Butai doctor

Not that hard, however all the white ll be challenge as im following box cover scheme. Anyway i have jap. sectorial allready glued and will start painting as soon as my girflriend wake up and ll be able to turn on compressor to prime the miniatures.
And as the oposing force there is:

Merovingian sectorial army box
Traktor mul
Dynamic duo(Margot & duroc)
Dozer, Field Engineer
and Chasseurs

I dont know if these armies are ballanced or not as i did not stated playing infinity yet whitch was my original plan for next week, but now i ve got plenty of models to paint! However this is priority number one, on my to do list. We ll see how it ll go, as im not limited by time, but yes, i think there is infinity week(or two) ahead of me. Thanks for visit and see you soon by the update!

Second GK dreadnought & some toughts

Hello to all of you, after little delay i realized i forgot to share picture of my second GK dreadnought! Hes painted exactly the same as the first one, i just customized it a little using few grey knight bits and load of purity seals as i did not want to have two exactly same models on the table at once. Not much to say about paint it self as you can check painting notes of previevous dread if interested, but as you probably noticed my  grey knights are closing to the stage when my model collection will become playable army! Its always and interesting moment when you bring your carefuly painted models to the table and plasma blast templates ll start raining on your units heads;-)
 Im really looking forwar to this moment as its almost a year since i attended mini combat patrol tournament with my imperial guard and did not played since then. Not that i ve not been satisfied how my guardsmen performed, they raped dark eldars, lost to vanila space marines and almost tied against grey knights despite all my four chimeras even when deployed in cover exploded on first turn leaving just raped torso of my force against silver power armoured onslaught. Even it does not sound like a successful "tournament" i enjoyed how the guard plays but just could not force my self to paint another 40 guardsmen so i ve sold my army and started painting my Iron Warriors, i have them almost combat ready same as my grey knights waiting in display cabinet for latter as i want to finish GKs first and have IWs just as a fun army.
In the shadow of my bigger projects i have started painting infinity minatures as well and just while ago i finished painting Merovingian starter set and after i ll finish this post i ll probably go sit on my sofa and start reading rulles;-) However right after grey knights project will be finished you can expect some battle reports to enrich this little blog and will start another big project - infinity gaming table. Why infinity? I allready have few scenery pieces and games workshop buildings for 40K and the table it self as well, but if you are reading this blog regulary you know how small my appartment is and becouse infinity is played on 4x4 tables it big relief for space in my kitchen and to be honest, its one of the reasons i decided to start collecting infinity side by side to 40K as i can host games at my home comfortably.
All right, i think that was enought for today, you know whats comming, we ll be painting more infinity, more 40k and microarts building kits in following months and ll start gaming as well. Hope you ll be interested and thanks for visit!

Painting Infinity Merovingian starter set

Hi all! As you have allready noticed todays update is not going to be about another 40K model, but as i wanted to enrich my painting experience and display shelf i decided to paint something else than different coloured space marines. These minatures are from Force de Response Rapide Mérovingienne, Ariadna sectorial Starter Pack box whitch contains 6 miniatures in total and here you can see the bigger half of the content painted up.
I ve put all of my skills in to these figures and spent little more than six hours on these four pieces and i must say it was really challenging and satisfing experience at once. I am happy i improved a little since i ve been painting Uxia miniature couple of weeks ago as i ve been thinking a lot how to improve certain things especialy getting a cleaner paint job and richer colours. You are probably allready checking the picture noticing all the imperfections i ve made and there is plenty of them, but yes, i cant have all at once and must save something for later;-) However im glad miniatures ended up like this, the only think i might rework are the bases as they did not turned out as i wanted them, but i ll wait till tommorow morning and decide what to do with them when my head will be clean and able to think clearly(yes started drinking today allready). Thanks for visiting and see you by more pieces!

Liby got new base

Hi again! As i received a lot of complaints about base of my latest paintjob i started to feel like the model deserves better one. Here is he again, standing on a new base and i think my friends were right this time and it really heleped the model. I have used again tiles pattern, added some snow and grass to the lines between them to creat scene of freezing city that was ruined a time long ago. Thanks for the visit!

Librarian Turmiel as a time filler

Hello everyone again! I just took pictures of my recent paintjob i did yesterday after i returned from my trip to Prague when i just had nothing to do for the rest of day and realized i ve got this dude in my bits box. I altered games workshop colour scheme a bit as i did not want to bother with all the white/creamy robes as i knew package with more grey knight ll arrive soon and i want to have my table clean when they arrive but i chose to paint this one completely without use of airbrush(true i primed him white using it) to practice my brush painting. As you can see im still not where i would like to be with the quality as the paint is bit "muddy" and have to work on general cleannes of the paint but i think that should come naturaly with more time spent practicing painting with regular brush. But after all im quite happy how he turned out so i put him on a wooden base(have about 50 of these so have to use them somehow to thin my supply;-)) to take place in my display cabinet. Hope you like him at least a little and see you soon by grey knights project update! Thanks for visit and have a nice day!
