Trolls, jætter, ogres...

For some time now, a friend of mine has had a topic on the danish hobby forum, about his sculpting and conversion of ogres into trolls or in danish; "jætter" (aka giants) I've been talking to him about how they should be painted and he has asked me to paint one of his characters. I think they look awesome so I willingly agreed. Yesterday I picked it up, here it is:

Here it is and I am looking forward to be painting the monster in all sorts of screaming colours! ;)

Painting Crusade 2014 Belgium

This weekend I was in Namur, Belgium for my first time ever participation of the Painting Crusade event. We were 4 people from Denmark, my two friends, Mikkel and Kristian and me participating in the painting competition. Jakob being one of the judges of the competition.

It was an awesome event and we had great fun all weekend, talking about and painting, models. I think the crew for a fantastic weekend were I learned a lot from all the more experienced painters who all came with a lot of comments on my painting

Here is a link to their facebook profile.

And here are the pictures I took. Its only a small digital camera I am packing, so not the best miniature pictures, they are more ment to give a general idea of how the event felt.

Hope I'll be back next year.

Thats a bad mailman :(

Back in January I placed and order for the "Macragge's Honor" from Black Library Its a huge illustrated novel with gilded pages and it cost €95.00. The book was only being printed as they received order so the eta for delivery was 6-10 weeks. I placed the order the the 3. January and received the book in the mail last saturday. Now, Denmark has the national royal postal service and usually they are great. Much more reliant then UPS or GLS. Thus I requested that Postdanmark would handle the postage.

Last Saturday, I finally received the model. I wasn't home but my girlfriend was and she could text me and show me how the mailman had forced the package down into the mailbox:

I came home and gently pealed the wrapping of the book. Fortunately Black Library knows how to wrap their expensive books and thus it was limited how much the book had been damaged.
As mentioned, normally I always used the danish postal service but this time, I am really disappointed with the mailman.
The book itself is amazing. A huge book, true quality paper and amazing graphics. Bad thing is, its too short. The story tell the fate of the Ultramarines battleship Macragge's Honor while hunting Kor Phaeron on his battle barge into the void, after the ambush committed by the Word bearers.
