    Some of the pics are of older work...I paint everyday...about 2-3 figures a day mostly but even my Zen master cannot make me able to create a dio each week :-)
    I like the idea of Mini dios being little gods in spanish...I never saw it like that before..thanks :-)

  7. Awesome diorama. You paint every day? I'm glad we can benefit from your prolific output. My painty-time only gets squeezed in sporadically. Some evenings I just want to read or watch TV.

    Yep..I paint everyday, or at least I try to. I haven´t had a TV for over 25 years so that helps with making my own pictures ;-)
    Cheers

  13. Hi Paul! You've got a great blog here, I'm glad I found it! I've been thinking about getting som 1/72 scale plastics for wargaming and your posts are really inspiring.

    I'm commenting on this old post because I was particularly inspired by the winter knight and the snake, and had to write a snippet about their meeting on my rpg blog: http://norbannog.blogspot.se/2012/05/herr-gundram-och-ormen.html

    Since it's in Swedish and Google manhandles my already questionable prose too much I'll leave you a translation below.

    I had the audacity to use your image and plug your blog in my post, I hope that's OK!

    Sir Gundram and the snake

    And so it happened that sir Gundram's horse could not be restrained. It kicked and jumped and rushed forward aimlessly. The knight found himself thrown from the saddle, now lost and on foot in the winter woods.

    He walked from early morning until the sun was high in the sky, but could not find his way out of the forest. His prayers he sent to the holy Isentrud, protector of wanderers, and to St. Marcor, who not only cares for the hunters, but also everyone else who ventures into the woods.

    Faint from thirst and hunger sir Gundram sat down on a fallen tree to rest. This was fortunate, for soon he heard a muffled creaking and crashing that approached. The brave knight grabbed his shield and his axe and shouted:
    – Who are you to approach by stealth, with heavy shuffling gait?

    Sir Gundram was not met with a reply. Instead, he was suddenly surrounded by an ice-cold cloud of smoke. As the smoke dispersed the knight saw that it was the breath of the great snake that dwelt in the forest that had enveloped him …
