Boardgames and wargames are awesome. Whether you’re pitching your knights in shining armor against the forces of evil or battling for control over feudal Japan with monsters it’s a way of travelling to antoher time and another place. Sometimes you just want to immerse yourself into another world, but when the armies you put on the table are all grey plastic, that immersion is dirupted. Let’s be honest. Playing games is more fun with painted minis.
If I inspire you to paint your own minis, that’s a win. But for those times when you just can’t find the time to paint or feel like your skill is not yet at the level your toy soldiers deserve, that’s where I come in! Send me your miniatures or order them through me and together we can fight the grey plastic horde, one mini at a time.

I’ve been painting minis on and off for over 20 years. It started way back around 1997 when I was 11 years old. A friend from school had a Warhammer high elf and a skaven army and since I liked painting and history, I thought ”this is something for me”. So my parents got me the Warhammer 5th edition starter set with Bretonnians and Lizardmen. I reckon my first painted mini was a bretonnian bowman or a lizardman skink. I was, of course, absolute rubbish at painting but one of my friends was really impressed so that spurred me to paint more and more.
As many other painters I took a long break from painting minis between the age of 18-28. I studied history and art and finished my bachelor degree as a teacher in 2010. I once more took up the brush a few years ago after playing a lot of boardgames and getting tired of seeing grey plastic. Now I’m fighting the grey plastic horde, one mini at a time.
