My photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Normandy House

Good day and good week to everyone!

Today I decided to show you some pics of a building that I made for my Normandy 1944 terrain. I have came up with this building, based on various pics that I have collected through the net (Modellers and Historical Photos).

It is a scratch build terrain piece (if we exclude the window frames and the doors and the slates that are Wills OO Gauge pieces).
The building is made from 0.5cm foam core, and after its gluing with PVA Glue and pins on the corners to keep it steady, it has been covered with simple wall filler, that we use for our houses' walls. It has then been painted with simple acrylic paints.

The windows are Wills windows, glued on a piece of blue painted card (I wanted to represent glass, but the painting is rather mediocre. . . ).

It has been glued on a piece of plastic, and has been covered with Static Grass.

Hope you like it!

USMC Soldiers

Hi everyone!

Today I decided to upload some pics of some Marines from the Pacific to match my Japanese infantry!
They are the American Infantry from Imex - Korean War(I know that they are not 100% historically accurate, but I liked their fatigues - I thought they would suit for the Pacific theatre).

They all come in one pose, but believe me, I have many more on the workbench to show you in the future!

Hope you like 'em!

HAT's T34 - 76

Good day and good week to everyone!

This time I decided to post some photos of my newly painted T34's.

I have bought them last Friday, it is the HAT's T34-76 Russian Tanks. They are the two models per kit fast build. The detail is OK, but my only problem with this range is the tracks. . . Not realistic at all. Perhaps these fellows should look on it and fix this problem.


PS: And yes, I know that I have glued the exhausts the wrong way. . .Forgive me! I will make it up next time!

Japanese Infantry

Good day everyone!

Almost two weeks past since my last post, but there is a good excuse. I managed to lose the USB cable for my camera!Luckily, I discovered it last night!

This is 4 Japanese Infantrymen (Waterloo 1815 - Manufacturer), which I painted on Monday.

I was inspired by Alex, a guy who has another Blog(,in Spain who painted some Japanese for a game! Truly insparational mate! Thank you!

The painting steps are the following:

1. Black Primer
2. Paint the whole uniform with VJ Khaki
3. Paint the straps and belts and boots, with a brown (VJ Leather Brown)
4. Paint the sacks with a faded green (VJ Canvas)
5. Paint the flesh parts with GW Tallarn Flesh
6. Paint the guns with VJ German Grey and highlight afterwards with VJ Gunmetal
7. Use the Army Painter's Dark Tone dip on the figures (Apply a ''rich'' coat with your brush)
8. Let it dry
9. Drybrush and highlight with lighter tones of the original used colours on the figs
10.Paint the bases
11.And yes my friends. . . .You are done!!!

So there they are. Hope you like 'em!
