Hi all,

time for another update. I made some sensible pictures of my Celtiberians. Per usual you find a detailed historical background, tactical considerations in FoG and some notes on painting them on my blog:


Naturally a scenic teaser photo is in order. More pictures (including close ups of all six stands) can be found on the blog.

Please stop posting pictures of your miniatures, or I'm going to have to throw all mine in the garbage. :-)

Seriously, those are gorgeous. You do very nice work, sir.

Nice work on the snow scene, too. I'd like to know more about those bare trees. What brand/model are they? They look way better than the Woodland Scenics sprues I used for the same purpose.

Hi Yellow Admiral,

those are all entirely handmade (well I use MiniNatur foliage for the summer and autumn ones, but all the rest is wire, Fimo, woodfiller and paint). The one on the lake is made with just wire, for the others I used seamoss.

Here is a detailed tutorial:


If you are interested I do commissions, but will only be able to take on new stuff end of October (see Blog for details).

Ah HA! I just didn't look far enough. Thanks for the link.

That's a helluva lot of work per tree. The results certainly pay off, but… ZOMG!

Well, what can I say I just like trees ;). The barren ones don't take too long, especially if they are of the smaller variety. It is quite meditative to work on one, but that might depend on your idea of relaxation.
