First Mutant Chronicles model finished, I really like this model and it alone sold me on the bad guys.

The Liebster Award

Hello again, this morning I had got this fancy award from fellow blogger Jiaqi Lim from Toyconstruct. I have been away awfully much this spring due to everything, but just recently I got back into the hobby and found time and inspiration to paint again, so this award is something of a little extra motivation.

As the rules are, there is the questions that need to be answered:

1. Why did you start blogging?

To have a place online to store all the pictures of my models, this quickly growed into a real blog and I try hard to not let anything non-hobby slip in.

2. If you could change one thing about wargaming hobby, what would it be?

Nothing really, I am quite content with it as it is, perhaps find more time, but that goes for everything I guess.

 3. What is best in life?

When the working week is done, to sit down with some models and a cold beer, listening to some good tunes and having my great GF next to me, reading or whatever she likes to relax with. Talking or just enjoying life, that is the best I can talk about here.

4. Fame or Fortune

I already get awards so bring the fortune!

5. What miniatures are you most proud of having painted.

Don´t know if proud is the right word, but my napoleoinc army takes some determination to get done, but I think I am most proud of the times I try some new technique and climb out of my comfort zone and actually do well.

6. How do you deal with a burnout?

Let it bleed out and read a lot instead, I usually read about war history or similar genres and after a while I get inspired by something I can relate to in gaming and that gets the idéas spinning and all of a sudden, there I am painting again!

7. Why is a Raven like a writing desk?

More like a postman, no?

8. Star Wars or Star Trek?

Star Wars, any day of the week.

9. If you could only buy from one miniature company from now on, which would it be?

Prodos games, as they both do the amazing models for new warzone ressurection, but also provide 3D printing, and as such can make pretty much everything. In a world where I can only buy from one company, I guess the copyright thing is also obsolete, right?

10. What is your favourite takeaway?

I cook my own food but if I have to take away it would be a pizza, but only because I don´t have the time for anything else.

11.What do you like most (or least) about blogging?

It is great to get feedback and see other peoples hobbies, while I grew up I only had my dad's magazines about everything hobby, which while they were nice never had this wargaming thing, railroading was the closest. Now we can all share and talk about it when we want, and that is great.
