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)!!

And now for something completely different - Zvezda # 8046 - Vikings

I am sure you are all familiar with this ingenious punchline, coming from a group of people which I admire the most. L&D, Monty Python at their finest moments!
This line from the following video has facilitated my shift in painting figures from other historical periods, besides WW2 as it was the case for quite some while now. 

Below you will find photos of some freshly painted Vikings, coming from Zvezda's excellent kit ( #8046 - Vikings). Some experimentation in trying new painting techniques, alongside with some other distractions that came across - see History Channel's new series - The Vikings (well, we're already waiting for the 3rd part of the story), have put me in the procedure of trying to play with some new toys - I must confess that I get distracted very easily -  we all do, I'm sure - that's why there are so many kits around to buy after all. 

I hope you like them.


P.S: More painting projects will follow in due course. There are so many historical periods that rang my doorbell! :-)


  1. Nice. You know what this means of course. Now I have to find and paint Saxons. Damn you Thanos! Damn you!

  2. I love them! I think I'm going to enjoy your change of direction Thanos.

    1. Thank you Michael. I think I needed a diversion...

  3. Hi Thanos I am enjoying your blog. Intersting change of direction for you! I have nominated you for an Liebster award. It helps promote wargaming and modeling blogs:

  4. Nice work! Will we now be seeing a mediaeval village for these chaps to pillage?

    1. Thanks Alan. Too many projects in terms of figs, but I think that I may come up with sth about these chaps! :)
