Happy New Year

The last days have brought many changes to my tiny batcave. Me and my wife will move to a much larger cave very soon and we spent countless days with buying furniture and all kind of necessary and unnecessary stuff. We bought a showcase for my minis which is quite kick-ass, I will post pictures of it as soon as possible, but not before February.
Apart of that, I didn't get in touch with minis or mini-related stuff at all. To much other things to do, not enough time to relax. However, I expect a huge motivational boost in my own working/painting-room, what was the bat-kitchen until now. There are a few projects waiting to be finished and they have to be done until the Duke of Bavaria.
Sorry for not posting here on a regular basis at the moment!!!!!

The early bird catches the worm

It might be a bit early, but I would like to let you know that there is an official date for next years Duke of Bavaria in Ingolstadt. The show will take place from Friday (27th April) to Sunday (29th April).  As this has become the most important German painting competition and show, you should be there if possible. I will post pics of the last events during the next couple of weeks.

Quote of the day...

When I was in China on the All-American Ping Pong team, I just loved playing ping-pong with my Flexolite ping pong paddle.

Painters-reunion at its best

reunited (left to right: Erik with Akira, Goatman, Raffa, Angelus, me)

The last weekend was just great. I was looking forward to meet some ancient, some old and rather new friends at the same place. As we slowly tend to become elder (I saw an immense amount of grey hair around the painting table^^), this kind of meetings become more grown up, without loosing any kind of intensity or fun.
The "Casa Angelus" is an overwhelming place to hold such an event, the pure size of the house is breathtaking. In fact, I can hardly imagine a better place to meet friends. Sorry once again for the resin-thing, the cooking-thing, the jeans-thing, the hair-thing, the car-thing and the shower thing. The rest should have worked. :)

I want to thank Angelus for being such a great and strong-nerved host, to Raffa for sharing his view of life with me, to Goatman for being the ass he is (in the best way one can be an ass-I love you man!!!) and especially thanks to Erik for being the person he is. Special thanks goes to Akira for not licking my toes at night (don't even ask).

Here are some pictures to give you an impression of the event. Hope to see you guys again soon.

It usually takes a long time to find a shorter way

What happened during the last couple of weeks? One thing is sure, I did not paint for a second. First and foremost I decided to be Dovahkiin, I slayed Dragons, improved my Thu'um, retrieved long-lost spoons, intimidated kings and spoke to whispering doors. Furthermore, I smithed day and night, decided to not follow the path of Mara for the moment and instead restore the former power of the thieves guild. With a bag full of torchbug thorax and a totally useless torch I made my way through the world of pixels.......

I you have no idea what I am talking about, please don't even try to understand. It will absorb your mind, take your full attention and leave you as a lonesome creature of the night. I love it!!!!!!

However, I just wanted to tell you that there will be a great meeting of painting friends the upcoming weekend. Among the guys are Picster, Goatman, Archer, Angelus and Dovah.....^^
I will take some pics of the event and hope it returns me to my workspace. In about 2 months me and my wife will move to a much larger flat and I will get my own working-painting-fun-batcave. Yehaaa :)

I will show pics of the painters-meeting early next week. Here are some songs, pics and videos I enjoy at the moment, a wild mix around the globe.....
