RIP Paint´s and stuff...

I´m a bit sad.
But also a bit relifed to tell you that Paint´s and stuff will be put to sleep. It will not come as any surprise I guess, since the blog has been rather dead the past year. Still it feels right to speak it out officially.

There are several reasons for this, one of them is that the purpose of this blog has changed and since I look at this miniature hobby with different eye´s today I also feels like I needs to do a change.
Another reason is that I don´t find the time to paint as easily now day´s and less time to write about it. So managing this blog alone was not an option.
And last. I have been invated since some time back to be part of the site www.minipainting.se and since I don´t have to take full responsibility for that site it was a fair deal for me. 

I have had some really great moment with this site and it has been an important part of my life, but as life goes on so does the blog. This will mean that i will still tries to post pic´s and write a word or two, just at another webite. So, I kindly invite everyone to the site www.minipainting.se to read more about what me and my dear friend Lars have been up to and what we will do in the future.


With all of my heart, thank you all for a great time. Every one of you who have read something I wrote is important to me. Thank you!

There will be no next time (here), but happy painting and please visit www.minipainting.se

Monte San Savino show 2013 part1

Monte San Savino Show 2013 is over, and have left me with a big hole to fill with something. Maybe I fill it with some painted minis...

This was the first time I visited Monte San Savino Show and I really had no idea what I was going to expect when I arrived. But let´s start from the begining.

Me and my good friend Lars got the idea a few month´s ago about going to Italy and Monte. So we bought ourself some planetickets, got a place to stay and went! At first let me say, Italy is wonderful! The people, the nature and the food is great and the coffe is superb! So far all my expectation has been fulfilled.

We arrived at Monte San Savino on Thursday before the show and after a good night´s sleep (and a bottle of wine) we got up early and walked to Monte San Savino. This is a picture of Monte San Savino taken outside our "apartment" at 7.30 in the morning.




The Street´s of Monte San Savino.
The Monte San Savino show was held at a museum and was in three floors! The registration started at friday and continued on saturday, It was amazing to see all the beautifully painted miniatures and the atmosphere all togheter! Sadly I took almost every picture with my cellphone so they are not high quality pic´s, but they will give you an idea about the level of painting. I heard that it was about 1000 entries pre registrated and more to come so the place was filled with miniatures! I will show some of the photo´s now and the rest later.












More to come!

Untill next time, happy painting!

WIP Steampunk Jen Haley

A small update about the Steampunk Jen Haley miniature that I have started to paint. Now it´s about time I decide what´s my next step will be on this mini. I have very limited time to paint and I really want´s to say, well, I think she´s done now. And I ´m happy with the result!

That´s my intention. Will it ever happen?

I don´t know, but so far I´m happy with the result, not everything of course (but I guess I never will). I have some minor thing´s to do before deciding weather she will get some freehand stuff or not. Then of course is the base who need´s a bit of love.
On this mini I have very limited time, so say about 5h at the most. What can I do in just 5h? I guess we will have to wait and se where the muse caries me...

And another mini I started to paint a while ago, it´s a Sniper from MaxMini.

Some thought's

I'm human. And with that comes a whole lot of thing's...some of them are killing me, some drag me down and others lift me up again when I'm to tired to even walk. A head of me is some heavy stuff, behinds me even more. But somehow, evey day ends and a new one is coming.
I haven't got do much dicipline in blogging any more. But every now and then I will write a few words. Maybe even include a pic or two. This leads me to this post. This is a WIP on a mini from Dark Sword miniatures called Steampunk Jen Haley. It-s a joy and a really nice mini to put your hands on. This is about 4h work and I will have about 4-6h more before it has to be done. Proper pic's will come after she is done. Hope you will like her.

Untill next time, happy painting!
