Infinity: Wildcats Wip

And so I'm now in Finland... I managed to bring with me some miniatures and a very small selection of paints and brushes, so I'll have something to do in the evening.
From now on, at least for a while, I'll post only in English, as it somehow feels more appropriate to the situation.
Right now I'm living in Paivenpaiste with another erasmus student, a Lithuanian guy.

Bot now, back on the miniatures! I'm following the original scheme, as it suits those models very well. The two guys in the foreground are almost identical. I say almost because I had to mix paints to achieve the same colors as in my previous model.
Another unexpected issue is the temperature and humidity of the building I'm living in.
Even with heaters off and the small window half-opened, here the air is so dry and hot that paint dry almost instantly. So different from my painting station, with 80% humidity and 18°C... It will take a while to get used to it. Here I don't have an hygrometer nor a thermometer, so I cannot really compare the two situations on scientific grounds.

Anyway, see you to the next post! Moi moi!

Miniatures: GW Lotr Haradrim and Wargames Factory Ork

Those are some miniatures I painted some months ago: a captain for my Haradirims and an orc.
Right now I'm rather busy, since I'm on a full RPG-rampage: On Tuesday I play D&D 3.5, on Wednesday GURPS cyberpunk and on Thursday Brass Age (a steampunk investigative rpg).
I'm also playing a lot at Dystopian Wars 2.0. I bought a new Australian fleet and found an opponent which plays FSA. See you in the next post!

Contest: Terzo Trofeo I Minimondi di Capochino (and some news)

This year there will be a contest held by "I Minimondi di Capochino", an Italian site. 
Sadly, this year I will not be able to participate: I'll go to Finland at the beginning of January, and I'll stay there untill the end of May.
Yup, I'm gonna go Erasmus in Turku this winter!
That's why I've been less present online for the last year: I had to apply and to study hard in order to be selected for the exchange program, and that really eaten up my free time.
Anche quest'anno i Minimondi di Capochino organizza un contest di modellismo.
Purtroppo questa volta non riuscirò a partecipare, poichè a gennaio andrò in erasmus a Turku, in Finlandia.
Quest'anno sono stato poco presente online a causa dell'enorme carico di lavoro associato alla selezione e preparazione per lo scambio, che ha eroso rapidamente il mio tempo libero.

Miniature: GW and Reaper Wizard

D&D, Faerun campaign.
My warrior was killed during the last session, so I knocked up a new character: a mercenary sorcerer which poses as a wizard to earn more money for his work.
I needed a new miniature, so I painted a GW wizard, swapping the head of his staff with a blade from the skaven war wheel.

D&D, campagna ambientata nel Faerun.
Il mio PG, un guerriero, è morto durante l'ultima sessione, quindi ho iniziato un nuovo personaggio: uno stregone mercenario che si finge un mago per guadagnare di più.
Avevo bisogno di una nuova miniatura, quindi ho dipinto un mago dell'impero di warhammer fantasy. Non mi piaceva per niente la testa del bastone, così l'ho sostituita con una lama della ruota da guerra skaven.
I'm using the old reaper mini on the right as the voyage version, while the one on the left is the social outfit.

Miniatures: Lotr Dùnedain

Another miniature that sat unpainted for too long: a GW LoTR Dunedain, side-to-side with an older miniature.

Ho terminato anche questo Dunedain della GW, un'altra miniatura che è rimasta per anni semidipinta. Quello di destra è un vecchio Dunedain, giusto per comparazione.
Left, new. Right, old.

Conversion: GW + Wargames Factory = Knight mash-up

Not much to say on this mini: it has been cobbled together a couple of years ago, and I never finished it until today.
Torso, arms, axe and legs from Wargames factory Vikings; helm and shield from GW bretonnia, sword and plume from GW high elves.
