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)!!

The Farm - my first battle video

Greetings my friends!

Monday today, and my hands are filled with paint. As you allo know, I usually paint models but, in this case I am painting my balcony's railings.

It's what I call a nightmare. It's a different thing to paint little men and vehicles, and a totally different thing to paint details like the ones you are seeing in the photo below.

And yet, I have to give them a second hand (lots of details must be repainted).
But, complaining is just a waste of words and feelings.

I have prepared for you my first video which is about a small skirmish battle, I recreated some days ago. If you remember, in my last post I told you that I am going to have a surprise for you.

The pictures of this video have been processed through Photoshop (not the models, I only added some small effetcs and I have made the original colours a bit dull, just to give a 'warlike' feeling about it).

The story is about an attack of British forces to a Normandy farm held by the Germans. . . 

You will find some of the graphics a bit childish and...experimental, but please forgive me, since I have just started playing with programs like Photoshop and After Effects. At least it has sound effects in it! :-)
I promise that the next video will be better.

Enjoy the show boys and girls!

I hope you liked it.
Have a great Monday night everyone!
