My photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Italeri - Set 6134 - German Paratroops (Tropical Uniform)

Long time, no see...but, I think I found my mojo again.

Getting married, it's a difficult thing to do. 

Yesterday and today I painted these chaps from Italeri, some notorious German Fallschirmjagers from this kit. I hope you like them.

Many kisses for a wonderful Saturday night. :-)

Copy & Paste Vol. 1 (City Corner)

Greetings everyone!

Hope you are all well.
Today I'm introducing a new section in my blog, which will be called: Copy & Paste.
The title will seem to you a bit ambiguous, but if you keep reading, you will understand that the title, serves its purpose.

As you all know (well, the ones following my blog for quite some while), terrain making is one of my favourite parts of our hobby. Its purpose, besides of providing a nice aesthetical feeling whilst playing, is to give the impression of realism and authenticity that will boost the essence of pleasure (to the eye, at least).

Many ideas come and go, but, one that has been haunting me for quite some while now, was the possibility of integrating natural and 1:1 scale terrain pieces (through the city or outside in the nature), into my wargaming tables.

Some weeks ago, I have found this small corner and I took some photos with my phone.

After that, I went home and began creating a similar terrain piece, scaled down (for 20mm figures), as best as I could, with what material pieces I had available.

The result was this:

If you liked the model above and you have any ideas for terrain pieces, that you'd like to see them on your tables, I would be more than happy to provide some modelling work for you, in making these ideas tangible and playable. A feast for your eyes, and for your little men!

You would only need to send me some photos ( email ) , I would assess the feasibility of its creation and then let me come back to you with further details regarding its cost and timeframe for its completion.

I hope you all have a wonderful St. Valentines day!

Remember, if we keep them happy today, we will then assert the right to dedicate more time for our hobby. :-)
