New Miniature Project: Tolga!

A rather short post today to share the latest development at the Workshop. Two weeks ago early Saturday I have received the ultimate miniature which will be the focus of attention from here on. At first sight it’s a remarkable product with no mould lines so far and an excellent casting quality. Say hello to Tolga!

Tired but proud!

All kidding aside this is pretty much the game-changer for me as I’ve been expecting him for quite some time now. Immediately he’s become the center of attention in the family and everyone is excited to see my first-born son. Needless to say he’ll be well geared towards miniatures and other manly things from the earliest possible age – we even let him listen to Star Wars scores while he was still growing in mom.

Obviously the first few months will be eating up a lot of my time so expect to see less updates in this corner. I’ll be working on my Twitter account and Facebook page in favor of the blog but may still be able to post the odd review or showcase mini (ha-ha I wish!). The Facebook page is still under construction (due to laziness) but Twitter is up and running so feel free to add me to your follow list @roemersworkshop.

The best miniature I got!

Until next time, stay safe and keep on rocking the minis!

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!).

Showcase: Necron Lychguard… and 100!!

And what do you know, we’ve reached the 100th post in the Workshop! Time really does fly when you’re having fun. You’re in for quite a treat today. After quite a few weeks of inactivity I decided to get back to the hobby front in full force and start completing some projects at hand. And as promised, the next showcase following the Dreadknight is the Necron Lychguard, intended as a birthday gift to my fellow hobbyist Xasf. Took my sweet time on the models but in the end I’m content with the results. I also have some further news regarding the position I’ll take on the blog as well as some nice last WIP and showcase pics of the Lychguard, but for that you’ll have to make the jump!

Review and Showcase: Salt Water Arachnoid Giant (S.W.A.G.)!

Welcome to my review of the Salt Water Arachnoid Giant! This is definitely one of the best kits I’ve seen in quality or complexity compared to GW and similar miniature manufacturers. Due to the awesome details and showcasing opportunities I thought it would be nice to look at it a little closer. Take a look at the details of this kit after the jump.

WIP Update: Week 4 of March 2015 and Happy Birthday to RW!

Greetings! After a quick flight to Malaysia for business and a week filled with work I got myself to having some quality time both in the hobby department and in the company of friends. I also received the large package I ordered from Oversoul related to their recent business changes to add to my mountain of kits… what a backlog this will create! Hop in to see what I’ve been up to in my absence after the jump.

Hobby Getaway and Screamer Progress

We had another board game day with my pals from high school this past weekend, which is fast becoming a regular event it seems. The Saturday was dominated by Horus Heresy the Board Game and Warhammer 40k: Relic, which we enjoyed immensely. On Sunday we had another meeting with FigurinIstanbul this time in Pegasus, a hobby shop that also sells WH miniatures in Istanbul for a workshop on how to paint realistic faces. Lastly, I did some minor work to completely assemble the Screamers of Tzeentch. Hop in for a peek at what I’ve been up to, which includes my first attempt at recapping events in a board game!

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!
