Sigh, time marches on
Well, life is interesting as they say.
It has been a long time, the youngest boy is 3. Maybe I can find some free time to get back into my old hobby?
Starting to find myself tooling around, looking at the amazing stuff going on over at http://CoolMiniOrNot.com and some other fun places.
Time will tell I guess.
One thing is for sure, the backend software for the site will have to change. What an ass pain!Fri, 06 Aug 2010 13:21:42 GMTChest of Colors News
We're meeting again in the new year! We hope it will be a good year for all of us - full of new beautiful minis and much time for painting them. And if it's possible - talking about the hobby in the forum. We'd love to meet you there again.And to kick off with some good news, we would like to announce that Ana's mini-diorama won the Paint Garrity Competition, which was a part of the Newbold Challenge 2007. As the results are already official, we can show you the Garrity Gals. If you enjoy these miniatures - we're more than happy. So enough of this talking! Happy new year to you all, and now let's return to miniaturesWed, 31 Dec 1969 18:33:28 GMTMarines all over the place

OK, guys. I am quite sick at home and don't spend as much time at my computer as usually as I should stay in bed for most of the time, not much news this time.After posting new pictures of Galharen's High Elf Lord to his gallery, we also put him on eBay. So now we've got two auctions going on: One for Galharen's High Elf, and the other for Ana's Female Summoner (the topless version), sculpted by Tom Meier.Check them out to see if you wouldn't be interested...Wed, 31 Dec 1969 18:33:27 GMTGerrie blogs!

.Wed, 31 Dec 1969 18:33:27 GMTwww.ChestOfColors.com news roundup
We haven't been posting roundups of new stuff from Chest of Colors for quite some time now, so let's do it now. Pretty many new paintjobs appeared on our website, so let's present them here in one message:
First we posted Kacpero's Golden Demon winning Cirdan and Illusionrip's Orc. This allowed us to close the subject of Polish Golden Demon.
Two new persons joined our ranks: Marcelle, a talented sculptor, whose works can be seen in Marcelle's gallery, and Elvers, who won in Youngbloods category at Bazyliszek 2007 with his Gretchin with Flamer.
Many works were brought to Bazyliszek, which allowed me to take many photos and post them into our galleries. Several miniatures, including older works, were posted to Nameless' album. I managed to re-post better photos of Demi_morgana's works: his Gorkamorka Ork Nob, Cryx Bane Thralls with Goreshade and Deathwalker, Wolfen Zombie, and theRusty Rhino vs Cthonian diorama. Check the new pictures out, as they do more justice to these works.
Irkuck added his new Chaos Battle Standard Bearer of Tzeentch, which was converted from Archaon and covered with numerous freehands. And last but not least, Ana posted a few new miniatures: Vanda with her V-Guard, the Old Couple - a nice little thing made just before our wedding, and her last work: a Great Unclean One from Forgeworld. Yuck!Wed, 31 Dec 1969 18:33:27 GMTBazyliszek 2007 - Painting contest results
Yesterday we returned from Bazyliszek - an annual convention in Warsaw. There's always a painting competition at Bazyliszek, called "Van Gork's Sunflowers". Some of us participated in this contest and we're back with a few trophies, and a lot of photos. If you want to see all the winning entries, just visit our forum. But if you want to see even more photos - including all the remaining entries, other miniatures, and photos from the event - just visit the gallery.For those who are curious who painted which mini, we tried to identify as many authors as possible and put their names in the captions of the pics in the gallery. But if you know the author of an undescribed entry - just let us know. Thanks a lot!Wed, 31 Dec 1969 18:33:27 GMTMiniPainters Miniatures - New miniatures line from MiniPainters!

Hi all,At Chest of Colors we've uploaded pictures of our Golden Demon winning entries: Demon Color's eldar Falcon grav-tank, covered with elaborate freehand patterns, and Ana's Ogre on Rhinox (here seen from other angles). Both of them won gold in their categories, so we believe they should be worth checking out! Of course it's only if you haven't already seen them ;-)Here goes Illusionrip's Nurgle Daemon Prince for Warhammer 40K, which won gold in Warhammer 40K Monster category, and Kacpero's Cirdan which won him silver in the LOTR category. And the last one is Illusionrip's Orc, also a winner of a silver trophy in Warhammer Single Model category. There was also Illusionrip's Sicarius, but you've already seen him in our gallery I think that's all for this year's Golden Demon Poland, but this doesn't mean we won't paint anything new before the new year Stay with us to see if I am right....Wed, 31 Dec 1969 18:33:27 GMTNewbold Challenge - Help Children in Need
