It was my best hobby year since the 80s!

Don't write too much in my posts. Never been must for writing. Painting though is someonething I done in different forms my entire life and can't live without. There are a few things I would like to say about the past year though:

It was my best hobby year since the 80s!

The reasons for this are:

  • I discovered in early spring there were a lot of great blogs and bloggers out there sharing my interest in the old-school stuff. From eBay I knew you were out there but never ran into anyone.
  • I started my own blog. Reading my first post you can tell it wasn't very ambitious to start with. However, the fun just increased.
  • You actually visited my blog and wrote interesting and encouraging comments. There is a great spirit in our community. I don't think I have ever seen an unfriendly word being written. A bit rate looking around the internet.
  • All this got me very inspired and a lot of painting was done. Also manged to develop the painting as well - hugely rewarding. The main project was my Fantasy Chaos Army which started out as a Warband project which started out with painting a single Sorcerer. A few other bits and pieces got done as well and my 40k Khorne Warband was silly fun to do.

Thank you very much all writers, readers and fellow hobbyists!

I have no idea what 2014 will bring. The intention is of course to finish the Chaos army and as mentioned in last post, do a few more 40k warbands. Would be nice with a bit of gaming with my creations as well and going to Oldhammer day 2014 is in the plan.

Speaking of 40k warbands. This is a Nurgle Squat I made somewhere in the first half on the 90's for a warband I created back then. A project never finished

  3. I'm afraid my comment is going to be rather negative. You criminal! What did you do to this poor dwarf?

    1. LOL!
      Well - an old sin from the early 90's. I guess back then there were loads of this stuff still around so didn't consider the level of criminality this might be considered 20 years later :)
      Thx/Hans

  7. Yes, please keep it coming! I regularly revisit some of your posts to feast my eyes on your painting.

    I have also taken great encouragement from the supportive comments of other classic miniature enthusiasts. A good community to be sure.
