motivation .....check!

So post number2....

As I mentioned earlier a part of my motivation to start this blog was to motivate myself into finishing stuff.
Well yesterday proved one of those evening where this actually works.

Aside from my interest in war on a table top, I'm also quite into history and by consequence real life wars of the past and present. a couple of months ago a friend of mine introduced me to the Beta-test of World of tanks. Since then I've been an overly obsessed thread-head. And this addiction sometimes eats up hobby time....grrr.

Anyway yesterday evening during the tank runs, the idea of updating this blog today forced me into undercoating and shading of 2 terminators from space hulk. I also started a first draft of a dark eldar armylist(I like to build my armies towards a pre-set list). I'll post it in the future and any comment is more than welcome. That way I can pimp my list before I start building the models. I'm no good nor experienced general.....yet! ;-)

But without further ado....some pictures of the 2 terminators in the background and a figure that I'm painting for a friend of mine(the mini-exchange I talked about)

comments and praises ar always.
And the normal excuses like bad pictures(mobile) etc...are valid :-P

till next time

A start


because it looks like a good way to motivate myself. I also like to opportunity to get feedback...and of course to spit my opnions into the whole wide world ;-D


A tracking of my progress on several projects and hopefully a tool to better myself.
A couple of those projects win a golden demon, to win a best painted award at a tournament, to improve my drawing and airbrush skills,....

I'm Gert, a 29 year old guy from Belgium.
As a counter balance for the day-job I try to archive something more creative and graphical at home.
My ambitions and wishes outstrip my abilities by far. But hey, you've got to aim for the stars.

So....what's on the table for the moment:
I'm trying to convert something that I'd like to add in the single miniature fantasy category @ a golden deamon(probably UK or germany 2011).
I'm also drybrushing some german armour for a flames of war SS-force(gotta love painting oak leaf etc...)
As an on-going chore I'm finishing up terminator number 6 and 7 from the space hulk set.
And finally I'm trying to enrich my painting skills through the means of a mini exchange. I'm painting a friends mini(mordheim something) and he's painting ulrik the slayer for me. The idea is to exchange painted mini's @ Fantasy GT in the Netherlands(end of January). What's so special with that....Well 2 points:
*It's a kind of mini that I never painted before
*I'm trying to paint this kind of Natalya Melnik style(I got the DVD-set for my birthday).

I hope to post some future pictures of all these goodies.
