The Latest from the Workshop

Another long silence has passed at the Workshop since the last update. Between a long religious holiday (a saving grace from work, even for a heathen like me), my birthday and a business trip with a somewhat unexpected outcome I have managed to make time for the miniatures at hand and added more to the pile of unfinished work! Hop in to see what I have to share for the past few weeks and a teaser for what is to come (mobile users, slightly heavy with images!).

Tutorial Presentation on Prezi

A short update today, so I guess no break line will be necessary. I couldn’t work on any models during the week due to work but I did manage to play around the presentation software called Prezi. I have converted the tutorial for wet blending to the signature zoom in/zoom out format and I think it’s simple enough to follow without being hard on the eyes!

As the embed function is no longer supported in WordPress.com accounts, check out the Prezi in the link here.

I hope you enjoy this as it took me some time to visualize the whole thing and simplifying it to few slides without making it utterly cumbersome. If this thing catches on I’ll prepare the “lite” version of my tutorial posts via Prezi and link them below each tutorial.

Let me know what you think in the comments (advice, corrections, anything), and have a good time zooming!

2014 in Review

Happy new year to everyone from your favorite Workshop!

The servants of WordPress.com prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog. A pretty cool fact from the report for your leisure:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,700 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

 

Besides this I considered making a resolution post for 2014 and 2015 but there really are no additional highlights save for the finished Dreadknight and the Heldrake models and I already have mentioned my backlog in an earlier post… here’s to hoping that I’ll be able to keep up with it. Unless I get swayed by another brilliant miniature release by GW, this should be relatively easy to do.

So let me just wish my best for the holiday season for all and see you on the next post!

Unboxing: Space Hulk Board Game

Welcome to the first review on Roemer’s Workshop! Today I’m breaking the trend of being outdated (GW is really giving me a hard time being up-to-date!) and have come up with a relatively new release to present: the Space Hulk miniature board game. Hop in to take a look at what’s inside after the jump.

A Bunch of Occasions

Last time I mentioned that there are some interesting days ahead of me.  And what do you know, it just happens that this year a long national holiday coincided with my birthday, getting me out of the office and into a long weekend! This is pretty much what I needed right after a hectic week with overtime work and I’m planning to make the most of it… you guessed it… in the hobby department! Find out what I got for the b-day and what will be on my bench for the near future after the jump.

Unfinished Business and Model Frenzy

Last week I mustered the courage to sift through the ever-growing heap of models I have which have collected some dust over the counters and in the open. The models include both the GW brand that I have prioritized as well as some old favorite scale models of planes and tanks from Revell. Read on to see my thoughts on the hobby and a remedy to the increasing-number-of-models-syndrome. (more…)

WIP: Maulerfiend #3

The past weekend I was looking forward to completing the Dreadknight project by finishing the force weapons, however I couldn’t decide on which technique to use and was unsure of the color scheme for all the blends. So I switched to the primed Maulerfiend sub-assemblies and started applying basecoats. Not the most exciting news to be honest but this lets me keep the work flowing. Find out my progress on this beast and the work plan after the jump. (more…)
