The studio is closing down for a while

Hello readers, Corvus here. Yes it has been a while since my last blog post, after which I actually did quite some painting, but never got around posting here.

The main project I have been working on is a Lord of the Rings army. Ever since my painting workshop back in April, my interest in the game and its miniatures grew, to the point which I ordered 500 points of Mordor miniatures. I only played a game with a part of this army once, the plan is to paint a couple of extra miniatures before trying my luck again. Looking forward to my next visit to a Fellowship of the Miniatures club evening :) A picture from my first game:

But the last month or so there hasn’t been much painting going on. Reason for this are the renovation works which are going on around my house.┬áBecause of this we will have to move some stuff around the house, since we will not be able to use our living room and kitchen for a couple of months. So the studio will have to be disassembled for now, making room for a temporary living room. This is a picture from last week, everything was packed up, the painting table itself already removed from the room:

I spent quite some time cleaning all the dust from my display miniatures, moving the display cabinet and making it dustproof. It is now located in the hallway upstairs:

Will this mean no painting at all? Of course not. I made a little “survival kit” with necessary supplies to work on my Mordor army, and the paints are still within reach. I can sit at the (improvised) kitchen table to do some painting of course.

I will keep you updated and hope to see some of you at CRISIS 2016 next week!


Guilty as Charged

Painted up this Malifaux boxed set up as a commission. This was a project which really suited my style, so I had a lot of fun painting these figures :)

Work in progress Malifaux Guilty as Charged set

Recently I have been working on a Malifaux commission, here are some work in progress shots.

Overall these are great figures to paint, but the guy being electrocuted is a real challenge :)

Review: Malifaux Guilty as Charged box

A look at the Malifaux Guilty as Charged box, from the Outcasts faction.

Overall a very ┬ánice set, but the assembly of the “guilty” figures was a real challenge :)


Ultramarines unit with commander and drop pod

I painted these up a couple of years ago, but never got to taking a picture of all miniatures together. It was supposed to be the start of my majestic Ultramarines army, but alas I never got any further than this :)
