Recap

2013 was quite a year.

I started this blog in late february and now, ten months later, it would be quite an understatement to say that was a pretty good decision. 

Through Officio Convertorum I've come in touch with a vibrant community of modellers that continuosly inspire, challenge and completely astound me with their work. Kari, Mikko, Migs, Kraut, JRN, Neil, Mol and many, many, others. 

I've also made some real life friends, among these are PDH/ Peter Hudson - a pillar of the inq28 community and the main inspiration for this blog, the illustrious mr. John Blanche (who needs no further introduction), Tammy (Tears of Envy), Tim (Tears of Istvan) and Jon Flindall. 

The Convertorum has also spurred me on as a modeller and painter - it's just more fun when you know people you respect are looking - and I really feel I've developed a lot these past ten months. 

It's been quite a productive year to say the least. Here's a group shot of  (most of) the models I've made this year: 


Orks:


Eldar:


Chaos:


Truescale Space Marines:


Squats: 


Henchmen: 



Inquisitors: 


The plan for 2014 is to do some bigger stuff. Not necessarily vehicles (although I have to finish up that Dakka Jet...) but rather monsters, robots, walking thrones, dreads - that sort of thing. Mix it up a little. 

I'll leave you with my personal favourite mini of 2014 - Cuddles the Cherubivm. 
Happy new year to you all!

  5. I have literally just come across your blog via eternalhunt and I have to say what an amazing job you've done! I spent my New Year's Eve gawping at each and every one of your models and have been suitably inspired by them all!

    I'm really looking forward to seeing your work in 2014!

    1. Thanks man.
      Better than my new years eve then, spent with the "wintery-puke-sickness" that always goes around in sweden this time of year.
      And no, that´s a actual disease - not a euphemism for hangover.

  9. You really should be proud of this years output, theres some fantastic models and imagery on display. I must admit your blog has inspired me to drag out my brushes again, although work dose sometimes get in the way :(

    Your henchmen really do look impressive displayed all together like that. It would be fantastic if you had an armies on parade type display for your inquisition force, im sure you could create some great scenery elements.

    keep up the excellent work :)

  11. Now you are just showing off, Jeff ;) Lovely miniatures, all of them. Displaying them next to each other multiplies the awesomness even further. Thanks and have a productive year 2014. Like you would not... ;P
