In a hole in the ground there lived a painter

So, have you been this weekend to the cinema to watch The Hobbit? I did of course! After all two months ago I was there, in New Zealand... Matamata... Hobbiton!


By the way... yes, that's me :D

Dark Angel Veteran Sergeant

This is my latest tabletop level model. As you can see it is a Veteran Sergeant, Dark Angels, from the Dark Vengeance boxed set of Warhammer 40k. Games Workshop.

I'm exploring new way to paint in short time  models for gaming purpose. I think I've made it in 3-4 hours, and that is a big achievement for myself!
Anyway this model has been sold on E-Bay, and now is flying to Australia...

My cabinet - Episode 1

That's my cabinet in this week.. some of the models you see there have already been sold.

MiniAkh's new blog

Hello everybody! Here it is, the new blog is finally online. As you can see actually it's not very different from MiniAkh.it, so why did I change it? Because I'm lazy! :D Yes that's the real reason!
Blogspot offers a lot of cool gadgets/widgets and connections already done and tested. Hopefully with this new system I'll be able to make more updates.
Anyway I'm actually working on the tutorial section, translating into English all the guides I've written in Italian for the modelling website that I admin along with other friends, Triplozero.com . Anyway it will not be a fast task :D
Another cool news is that now onward you can comment my posts! Wooooow that's amazing! As you can see it's everything kinda work in progress (graphics, fonts, layout, etc...),I'm still slowly coping all the MiniAkh.it articles in this blog so the past contents will keep growing in these days.
Enjoy with paining!

Imperial Fist Champion

Hello everybody!
I'm posting today another space marine I've painted in the last few weeks and that was sold on E-Bay.

This time I show you an Imperial Fist Champion made using scrap parts and bits from different kits, you can recognize Forge World stuff too.
I wanted to create something unique for this model so I sculpted/carved a fist shaped shield.

Ultramarine Veteran Sergeant

During the last days I've painted some Warhammer 40K models just for fun. They were all painted at a good tabletop level, and this is the first model, another Ultramarine!

In this Veteran Sergeant I've tried to paint using a little of freehand... it was just a test on the shoulder pad.
