My Better Half

Hey there,

I took a small break to create something for someone really special to me. Some time ago I got asked to be best man to a close friend of mine and she asked me via a model. A model? well yes, she is usually not in the habit of painting models at all but for me she found this cool black orc in her brothers collection, painted it and wrote the question on the base for me. I ofcourse accepted and as a thank you I wanted to gift something back in a similar fashion (since its really my hobby she did something with). That is actually not what this post is about though because having that Idea to create a miniature for someone else gave me the notion that I hadn't done this for my girlfriend. She may like to have something like this for herself too.

Now she has been going through a rough period and I see her struggling here and there but always managing to pick herself up again and start over where needed. To close readers of this blog (I believe there are few but if you are, glob bless you) will know I myself am having a difficult time trying to stay afloat. This hobby is a tremendous help and even when I don't like it anymore I can still find joy in it or finishing things. I figured that for me to give her a miniature would be one of the best gestures to make.

I chose this model because I think it reflects her power and I hope she puts it in a nice place and when she looks at it she will gather strenght from it or just to remind her that I am there loving her to bits.

Anyways, I present you: Daisy the Barbarian Queen.

By no means am I the kind of painter to really do well on these kind of showcase models but I still hope you like her.
I added the model to a block later with a personal text under it.
It's a 40mm scale model from Hasslefree miniatures.

New Colours

Hey there,

I tried out a new set of colours for the maybe opposing side to this force. It's a bit experimental but I'd like to hear if you like these.

Here is the mini I tried it on.

Foot Knights

I finished these two just now! They will go around as foot knights or as leaders to the men at arms. These are mixes of the Fireforge kits again. I also used a few parts from the Gripping Beast plastic vikings.

Dark Imperium

I have been painting a lot of medieval models of late. I think I settled on sometihng that I can keep expanding for a long long time. I hope to have a giant force at some point and to just be able to field anything I like at a particular time. Good goals I'd say.

However this new 40k edition is drawing me in and I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I will only go for the nurgle side this time because I'm not entirely sure what to think of the primaris yet. For now I'm sharing the box with a friend. No worries I have some cool plans for the nurgles. Something I couldnt finish last time I worked on these.

The box art for this kit is pretty cool though.

Foot Knight

Hey there,

I painted this guy to mix up the work from the archers.
He is a mix of different plastic kits.

Fight In The Shade

Everyone knows any good medieval army has archers. So I made some too.
These are footsore models too. They dont particularly look like they are in the right time setting but I really like the models a lot so I'm just rolling with it. These are the first three!

I finished my first knight for these guys. I will likely still change the banner to something more matching the others.

Hey everyone. I made a groupshot of the men at arms so far without the priest.

More Men

Hey there,

I finished some more men at arms. These are all footsore again. I also painted up the battle priest. He will likely not be part of a standard unit but it will be nice to just set him in one when the game i play allows it. Gives things a bit more narrative maybe.
