So I’m typing once again – this time for the last time on January and I must say passing week was definitely hard even though I didn’t paint anything, yup – you read it correct: anything.
Which of course doesn’t mean nothing was going on in the miniatures hobby!
So first of all – I got the tattoo :]
After 3 months of waiting for the appointment with the artist I finally got inked so Great Cthulhu shall never leave me!
The picture was made in Tat Studio in Gdansk (northern Poland) which it one of the best studios in the country. I decided to hit the 101% professionalists because tattoo is made for life abd I didn’t want to risk screwing it by unexperienced artist.
After 4,5 of work the piece is over half done. According to Jarek (the tattooist) there’re still ~4h of work. Great Ancient One will get some colors, maybe some more details and there’ll be added the island Cthulhu is rising from.
The idea is based on this picture – I’ve seen it a long time ago but after I purchased album with graphics based on H.P.Lovecraft’s novels last year and was it once again the decision was made – it was only the matter of time…
When whole project is done I’ll try to write a report about it – I asked guys in the studio to take some pics while working so it might turn out nice 🙂
As for proper hobby – last week postman delivered Realm of Chaos book. It’s rulebook for Chaos army from 5th edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle but because Chaos was the first army I fell love into (about 10 years ago? yeah, probably…) I decided to add it to my collection of hobby stuff. After all $5,5 ain’t serious expense.
What else? The client accepted Death Guard termies I painted so they’ve been sent away and thanks to my friend Mahon they got sweet professional photos. Hell, they look now better than I remembered!
Here are some pics if you’re interested: termie armed with flamer, slightly converted squad leader (the client wanted to get combi plasmas and combi meltas and there were only 2 in the box), another slightly converted terminator and the picture of the whole rotting family.
And speaking of servants of Nurgle – the Ebay auction I started last week and Chaos Lorf has just been sold – still cannot believe people pay for such toys. But because I like painting chaotic minis and there’re still some parts left in my bits box I think sooner or later another evil commander will be painted just for Ebay purposes – money makes the world go around…
And that’s still not everything from the hobby area! I contacted a guy from who I purchased some OOP Rackham stuff and even more french goodies in coming to papa right now! Can’t wait to see the postman (hopefully tomorrow) because in the parcel I should find some damn cool Mid Nor, Alchemists of Dirz (one or two Aberration clones) and Acheron minis. Santa will come VERY early this year!!!
Not everything spins arount minis so there’s another news from the hobby – not related to miniatures: last week I also got Medal of Honor: Airborne PS3 game – I really like games based on WWII events so once again I got the opportunity to kill some nazis.
And the last news for the January: yesterday my cooperation with Scibor at Scibor Monstrous Miniatures has ended.
Seeya in February!
