Wooden Peg Warriors

Because I don't have enough projects on the go, I thought it might be fun to paint up some wooden peg characters. I thought the kids might be into it as well, especially Keira. She is ALL ABOUT making things these days. Every single day she sews or knits something. At times I wonder if they're too intimidated by all the miniatures they've purchased over the last couple years - and not yet painted! Like, maybe they are self-aware enough to realize that there skills aren't at the level to make the miniatures they own look they way they want them to look when they're done? If that makes any sense?! I mean, I'M intimidated by the details on some models, and I've been at this for 35+ years!!So I ordered some pegs from Amazon. They batch it got was about 60 of them in three different sizes (55mm, 43mm, and 35mm) for about $17CAD (can't go wrong with the price!) - of course then I went out and bought some Milliput to add bits - but that was only about $12 and it will go a long way!Initially I'd thought these would b

Model – Tamiya Ducati Panigale 1199

Classic modelling and 1/12 scale is not a project that I could consider as a standard. And indeed, the process of preparing a Ducati Panigale 1199 miniature by Tamiya was not easy. Dozens of parts, tubes, screws, hoses, springs – connoisseurs of two wheels will certainly be delighted with the care with which the manufacturer tried to reproduce the real motorcycle. I spent really long hours trying to get all this together. Compared to the complexity of the wargaming figurines, it’s like a collision with a wall If I had to make this model again, it would probably go faster – I already know how to plan the work, painting and how to avoid mistakes. To sum up – a satisfactory set that I can recommend to advanced modelers. Commission services – minisforwar@gmail.com OR message on Facebook

A knightly Shelter

Alright people, now here's something a little different. A few years back, I claimed I wanted to use the imperial knight kit to make something fun out of it. Well as slow as I am, I can also be a stubborn one sometimes and the idea never really left my mind.If you don't know what I'm talking about just take a look at that brilliant picture from White Dwarf #133 :Read Moar Skullz »

Fort Hardknox Kickstarter !

Painted set by Curis from NinjabreadNow some time ago I painted a set of barricades that build a post apocalyptic fort, well of you folks feel like it, now is the time to go and pledge for it !You will probably don't do much promotion here apart and try to keep posts about what I paint but I really believe this Kickstarter project is absolutely great.

Time to set the scene - Fogou Fort !

OK so I've been pretty quiet for some time now, several factors  could explain that but one of them was that I've been slowly bt steadily working on a lot of scenery for Fogou Models' upcoming kickstarter !I had the chance to paint their former kickstarter last year so I was pretty chuffed to get to work on this new one !This one is considerably more ambitious with a whole post-apoc fort !Read Moar Skullz »

Paper Panzer E-10

WWII tanks are very beautiful, especially the German ones. I like bricolage tanks (old or foreign tanks recycled for new roles with new armour and weapons) and late war tanks. Moreover there are so many project for future tanks that you can design your fictional tank of 1946 or 1947. These are called paper panzer because they existed only on paper. The E series was the attempt to build a standardized series of tanks, from light ones to heavy ones. The E-10 was a jagdpanzer between 10 and 25 tons. I like its low profile and its flat top surface. I build even a E-10 panzer with a Leopard turret, just an historical extrapolation than a real project. My tanks are resin models with late war colours and camouflage. They are in 1/56 scale because I wish to use them with 28mm soldiers. A King Tiger or a Maus tank could be just a little bigger for a table. If you want to play tanks in 28mm, a realistic table have to be big as a swimming pool.

Hobby Exhaustion: Causes and Solutions

It might sound like a rather quirky term; hobby exhaustion. It almost sounds a little absurd, I’d go as far to say. However, when you break down some of the ways you can find yourself stepping back from your brushes and miniatures, the symptoms are all too real. Some may call it a “funk” or a “wall”, but I find those terms to be ambiguous and obtuse respectfully. What I’ve found it to be categorically is a metaphorical fatigue. If you have hobby deadlines or fancy yourself a completionist then you’ll probably end up stewing angrily in these states; I know I have. Don’t worry, it can be overcome. The best way to approach this issue is analytically and with a positive outlook. So, let’s get started. Let’s begin by first identifying what hobby exhaustion is and how it becomes manifest. Typically, if you struggle to motivate yourself to sit at your hobby station this can be a clear sign. However, the biggest red flag is where simply thinking about start
