Site back online

in

So I know this site has been down for ages. The reason was a sequence of server migrations and hacks, and myself adjusting to some new situations outside of the hobby. But I have been painting a few minis again and will post pictures soon.

It feels good to have the site back online

Reaper Miniatures Dirty Hobbit

in

I really like these oddball miniatures. This gave me the opportunity to experiment with sick skin effects and emulating hair growing on the lower belly. This was just fun to do.

Assassin Miniatures Witch

in

This is an old Assassin Miniatures Witch which has been standing on my desk primed for ages now. I decided to do a quick paintjob here in the spirit of "get some old things off the desk". This is just something to get used to the brush again.

Metal Magic Swamp Monster

in

This is an old Hobby Products/Metal Magic miniatures from the late 80s. I think this sculpt of a swamp monster holds up pretty well, even today. I painted this one pretty quickly. It employs a lot of washes and glazes. I even used some of the Tamiya transparent paints for glazing in between to get a bit of a translucent wet texture.

A blast from the past

Ok, I uploaded this one just for chuckles. It must be one of the first minis I ever painted in the 80s with enamel paints.

WotC Halfling Rogue - A study in composition

in

I really enjoyed the kind of scenic bases people are doing more and more to support their miniatures. I was never much into this and went for very plain bases most of the time. I thought that it was time to get away from this an to experiment with scenic bases. In the following, I will share my thoughts about the process of composing this base.

Heresy Miniatures - Blood Bowl Barbarian

in

This miniature was sitting in my "work-in-progress-cabinet" for a looong time. So while painting the Freebooter goblin, I also finished this one. The skin was done a few years ago, and I did a relatively quick job on the rest of the mini as a little side project.

Freebooter Miniatures Goblin - My first paintjob after a long hiatus

in

This goblin is my first from-scratch paintjob after my almost four years of absence from painting.

Visions in Color and Visions in Putty Galleries now on the new site

I completed the migration of the Visions in Color and visions in Putty events to the new site. You can check them out in the Visions section of this site. I am now technically prepared to run new VIC and VIP events and to host them on this site. I will continue to do some preperations for the next VIC showcase and keep you posted.

Follow the site development on Twitter

I resumed to work hard on the backend of the site again. I decided to post regular updates on the progress on Twitter. Follow me at: http://twitter.com/MiniOverlord. I guess I'll be ranting about the site development at first, and add more and more miniatures related things as time goes by and the site gets more operational.
