I finished two projects some months ago, but could find the time to write something about them... until now! 

 

First one is my version of the well known Abyssal Warlord from Scale 75. It was an opportunity to try sculpting a weapon, as i never did it before. I wanted to do a trident, as i thought it could suit the model quite well. I also added him a fish aileron. About the colors, well they are quite strange and i dont really remember what i used. I wasnt that happy with the result and as you can see i didnt spend much time on the base :) . But i love this model and i'll do another and i hope better version someday...

The second one is my first historical complete model. I painted a histo bust, but it's not the same :) . I always liked vikings, so i think it was a good choice to start with.

I've been recently contacted by Philip Prinz from the nice & new website Putty & Paint (link) to do a little interview. It was unexpected and i felt really honoured. As always i did my best with my english, but luckyily for me Philip did some corrections :) .

So, i managed to finish this tiny girl at the end of 2012, just before the Montreux Miniatures Show. It's a great sculpt from Allan Carrasco, that has been made for the Fantask'Open 2011 edition. Very few painted versions have been seen yet, but there is a great one from Matthieu Roueche : link .

As you can see i stayed in warm tones. Sadly i dont have the colour reciepe anymore as i finished this 2-3 months ago. Between this my daughter is born, so i've had other things in my mind :) .

 

Cheers!

Hi friends,

 

As you may know, my second child will be soon there, so i'm painting as much as i can before his arrival :) . I choosed a miniature that very few people did paint yet, an avalonian retiary. This mini is a bit strange and it's quite unbalanced with these big roots coming out of the arm. But i liked the dynamic pose of the badguy and it's a mini that allows a lot of different painting possibilities. 

 

I had an idea of something flashy, but trying to keep a dark atmosphere.

Hiho,

 

It has been some time i wanted to give a try at painting a historical sculpt. Some days ago i found this great bust in my unpainted minis box, and thought it may be the time to do it...

 

As historical says, i went up to a classic color scheme. You cant paint crazy on that stuff :D . It was also the opportunity to try some weathering and texturing techniques and i must say i'm quite happy with the result.

 

But dont wait anymore, the pics!

Hiho,

 

There's my last paintjob, the fantastic "Roi des Morts" from Metal Modeles. One of the most pleasant to paint miniatures ever. It has been painted for a miniature exchange with an italian friend, Amon Chakai.

Soo back from Italy!

 

Hum... What to say about this week-end and where to start...

 

First i met some really nice people. I didnt know much painters in person before going there as it was my second miniatures contest ever... I'm quite a shy guy, but luckily for me some persons helped me. I have to thank in particular Massimiliano Richiero (Amon Chakai) who was the first to welcome me, who did bring me to the LegioPictorum dinner and introduced me to some of his friends. Later on i've met many other cool people from different countries, but i wont be able to enumerate all of them. Anyways they'll recognize themselves :) .

 

The organisation of the contest was great in all aspects, the LegioPictorum members did an amazing job! I think i did never eat so much on three days... The hydromel didnt help the digestion i guess.

 

About the contest itself and the entries, three letters W O W. Well my only point of comparison is the World Expo that was in Montreux, but in my opinion the general level was higher. Most of the "big names" in miniatures painting/sculpting were there, some pieces that won Slayer swords, golden demons, crystal brush... What more to say...

 

I've done some pictures, i know they arent the best but you can watch them on my Facebook page :

Sorry for the historical painting fans there arent much pics, but you can see the one that won the Best of Show award.

 

On my side all my entries were in the Master Fantasy big paint category. Funny thing is i didnt hear my name during the awards ceremony so i didnt go to pick up my prize, missed the group photo etc. And just before taking the road back to switzerland i went to say bye to my italian friends and they told me: "Hey why didnt you come, you've won a silver medal!" . So that was a great surprise :D .

 

See you next year, cheers!

Wohaa, 

 

It has been a loong time without any update. Between my work, my son, family, friends i've been quite busy and it's often difficult to find some time to paint. But, right now i'm packing my stuff for the Monte San Savino Show :D . This was my birthday's gift from my lady, but sadly she cant come with me as she's pregnant and she has to rest. Anyways thank you!

 

I heard only good things about this show so i'm really excited! Bad thing is i'll have to drive approximately 7 hours alone, but i'll take my time. 

 

It will be my 3rd show ever, after the last World Expo in Switzerland and the Lugdunum Show 2012 where i couldnt even go in person... Can't wait to meet some other painters and share ideas about miniatures or anything else! I'll try to take a lot of pictures and make some videos so i can do a little report when i come back home :)

 

Cheers,

 

Martin

Hi friends,

 

I felt into the dark side, i'm now on Facebook :D . Why? Well you know it, it's the easiest & fastest way to stay in contact with friends, to share ideas, photos etc. 

 

I've never been a big fan of this life intruding tool, but i guess i have to live with my time :p . I already have an account with my real name and as i use it very very few i thought it may be cooler to create a new one only for miniatures related stuff.

 

So if you want, you'll be able to find me under the "Dre4mit Miniatures" name. 

 

Cheers!
