Here's the last project i finished, some hours ago. The mini is Raggarth from Sphere Wars.

The cast i had was really awful, so the preparation needed a loooong boring time. But i hope the final result erases this bad memory.

A little project running these days, maybe the most painted mini ever... Yarry from Enigma miniatures. As im quite new in the miniatures world i felt like i had to give him a try :)


Nothing is finished yet, but here's a little picture.


I still dont have any idea for the base, so if you have a good one, please share it with me :)


Take care!

Today something a bit bigger, probably my favourite model from GW this year, already a classic, the Nurgle Chaos Lord.


A friend asked me someday if i would sell him some miniatures. Well i wont feel good if i take my friend's money, so i suggested him to make a miniature exchange. We would both paint this mini and give it to eachother afterwards. It was also a little bit to force him to paint, as most of the time he plays videogames and doesnt practice :) .


At first, after prepping it, i basecoated it with a tamiya primer. Well be sure i'll never do this again. Maybe my paintstyle is not adapted to it, but my paints werent sticking at all on the mini and the results were awful. So after a Glanzer bath, i started it again but this time with a GW primer.


Here's the result :



For the skin, well i used a lot of colors and i dont really remember the right order. At the beginning i sticked to the colors used by Julien Casses on his Rat Ogre, but at the end it was kinda messy. So the colors are :


p3 : beast hide, gun corps brown, sanguine base, menoth white base, menoth white highlight, ember orange

gw : camo green, asurmen blue, leviathan purple, baal red, thraka green, ogryn flesh




For the armor parts :


p3 : menoth white highlight, umbral umber, thamar black

gw : camo green, thraka green, bestial brown




The metallics have been basecoated with boltgun metal, shadowed with umbral umber and black, highligted with model air chrome. The blood on the axe has been done with the weel known tamiya x-27 and black.




For the base i wanted something very dark and wet, with some disgusting things. So i took some milliput and did some worms and some eggs. That was not difficult, even with my poor sculpting abilities. Once everything glued i basecoated the base directly with charadon granite. Then i used the colors i used on the mini to paint the lights, shadows & details to be sure it will fit with the mini. The painting finished, i added the shine with Vallejo water effects paste and some shiny varnish.


I guess i spent around 15 to 20 hours total on this mini. Sure i could have spent much more time to finalise it, adding little details, damages etc. but im happy of it like this.


So now something new. You can watch it in video on youtube :) . Please if you can watch it on HD! More videos of other minis will follow, i'll try to add a video section in this blog.




I hope you like it, and that my friend will like it :)

A little update with another very fast paintjob, done to give a try at the Andrea Black Paint Set. It took me about 4-5 hours from start to finish with the base.

I added the scale on the picture because i think it's the smallest mini i've ever painted.

My name's Martin and i live in Geneva, Switzerland. I started painting miniatures at the deep end of 2009, after an unplanned visit on the coolminiornot website :)


Since then i bought some stuff, paints, daylight lamp, brushes and started to work...


Happy visit!

Hi there,


Something painted very quickly, simply to have some fun. The eye was a little try at dayglow pigments, after the article written by Raffaele Picca on Massive Voodoo.

The skin has been painted with Coal Black (p3), Meredius Blue (p3), Arcane Blue (p3) and Ivory (mc).

It has been quite a long time as i lost 3 weeks moving into a new flat, bigger and better :) .


So he's finally finished, the Happy Monk from Ernst Veingart. A lot of pleasure to paint something about peace, poetry and well being.

On his belly you can see the "om" syllable. It symbolizes the beginning, duration, and dissolution of the universe. Im clearly not a bouddhism expert, but thats what i read on wikipedia :p
