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)!!

How to: Make a small field

Greetings everyone!

It's been what? Ages since my last post from what I can see? Yeap....you are probably right. As you may have noticed, I wasn't very ''present'' in our blogosphere, for various reasons, which I am not going to use them, so to achieve some sort of redemption from you.

We have a saying here in Greece: Excuses are like cheap shoes; in the end you will find one that suits you best - but, as we all know, cheap shoes don't last long. :)

So nuff with me talking - no more talking, only pics of what I've finished last night. I know that I am inexcusable. :) 

I trust that the pics below are self explanatory - they are showing the basic steps in making a small field that can be used in various periods. But, if you have any queries, comments are open for you either for swearing at me or asking me things about this little gem. The choice is yours. :)

So....





















I hope you like it.
Have a great Thursday night everyone!
T.
