so here are the pics of my army. I know they are not the best quality but I need to find out a way to take full army pictures successfully :P

Pretty much tabletop standard here, nothing fancy. I have finished them in large batches of speedpainting sessions and I can say that I am quite happy with the result. The pictures are a bit crappy but you can get an idea on how they look on the table. I need to find a way on taking good army pictures (or pictures in general for that matter) but anyway.

I would love to hear what you think and as always comments and remarks are more than welcome! You can find them on CoolMiniOrNot as well!

Last but not least I would like to say how thrilled I am for another year in a row that my work is included in CoolMiniOrNot Annual 2013. More specifically, my  Chaos Helldrake of Nurgle and my Death Guard Tactical squad Faestus are there! I have just ordered my copy and I can't wait to get my hands on it! It also seems to be really hefty this year, much bigger than the previous ones!

I have also got my invitation for the CoolMiniOrNot Annual 2014 for my Adeptus Arbites 969th PrecinctDeath Guard Grave Warden TerminatorsImperial Knight and Be'lakor The Dark Master. This must be the biggest contribution I ever had on this publication and I am really proud. It was a creative year after all!

Till next time, take care everyone!!

Dancing through the snow

Hello everyone

Winter has shown its teeth here in Greece and what better than celebrate it with an according piece!

This is something I made for a present this Christmas. The miniature is a custom made G.Art piece (I don't think the company exists anymore) but I really love the looks of this little guy sliding through the snow with his little snowboard.

I also created a small diorama to accompany the mini. I used tree bark and carbonated soda for the snow plus some decorative trees.

I am really happy with the result. I hope you like it and as always comments and votes on CoolMiniOrNot are more than welcome!

Scottie McMuzzle wishes you Happy New Year!!


I want to wish to you, all the best for the new year, good health of course and make all your dreams a reality!!

I had this lovely Dark Sword miniature lying around half finished from almost forever and I decided it needed some love to be finished at last. Scottie is our beloved family Westie dog and I decided to paint his miniature warrior version the moment I saw it! I hope you like him!!

As always I would love to hear what you think and maybe leave me a vote on CoolMiniOrNot
