Why doesn't this blog update anymore?? 
Yes, why?


Simple. My health has gone way down and right now I've got to take a lot of painkillers. The hands are shaking, concentration isn't there. I stopped reading in the various forums I am/was member of.

There's a bit of surgery coming next so I changed my miniatures painting items to aquarells, pastells and charcoals. These were the mediums I started working with prior to my discovery of the miniature painting joy.

The sad (or funny) thing (depending) is that I can't paint miniatures right now as I am shaking, but it doesn't disturb my watercolors in no way.

Ah heck, perhaps I can show some paintings if everything goes fine.
Until then I wish you all many happy painting hours.

Terrain building corner 

My very own Terrain building corner Madness.
You'll find almost everything there. About the only thing missing is finding some "free" room to get something done. ;-)

Wargods: Anubi Warband 
I finished painting the first Wargods of AEgyptus minis:
The Anubi

The whole Warband consists of

Snofret-Haj : Harbinger of Anubi
Neriett : Anubi Embalmer
Sarn-Al : Anubi Hero
2 x Anubi Warrior Units (1x Green Belt / 1x Blue Belt)
1 x Anubi Archer Unit

The plan is to add a second Archer Unit and one (1) Chariot as well.
But not today ;)

The image is more than bad and I do hope I will sometime (soon) master the art of mini-photographing enough to put "well done" pictures on this site.

Hell Dorado 1 : Saracen 
As promised I try to show -now and then- some progress reports on the Hell Dorado.
I finally started on the first warband, the Saracen. Opposite to my "normal" common way of painting, I primed them white. Mainly because I want to try and get the colors more "bright".

The first of my Sarazen: The war panther. I didn't want a customary black Panther thus she got a blue coat.

The demons have also been primed, in my customary black. Hey, they are Demons and so a more dark, brooding color is okay I would think.
