4 talents from across Europe [special]

The good thing with the internet is that you can see what people from all over the world do with their hobby. I've spent a couple of years on various internet forums uploading my projects to the left and right and have come across many people whose talents outmatch my own by far and who are a great inspiration to the community of miniature wargaming and miniature painters.

So this entire post is dedicated to the work of others, I spent some time asking each of these guys for permission to use their pictures in this post and here's the result.
..............................................................................................................................

"Dr.Falkenhayn" (Switzerland)

An active member of the Secrets of the Third Reich forum Dr.Falkenhayn has posted some pretty cool stuff since he joined - looking through his photobucket I saw lots of cool pictures of Warzone and a great trench table. I had of course share these pics with you. The trench is used both for Warzone and The Great War gaming. He also has this gritty paintstyle that I am really fond of.

"Steulf" (Sweden)

Steulf is a moderator on one of the Swedish forums where I've been active the most over the past few years. And he is a hell of a painter, he has a project thread where he has been posting awesome upon awesome paintjobs on various larger scale miniatures, busts and models. He sometimes takes commissions for showcase models.

I figure you could contact him through CMON if you want to ask about a commission.

Agis Neugebauer (Germany)

Agis Neugebauer is a highly experienced games designer and system tester. From his secret lair in Berlin, he is applying his not inconsiderable skill to the development of his line of World at War books. He is 49 years old, married and an IT project manager in his real life. For the last 20 years he has been deeply involved in tabletop wargaming. He paints and models like the devil himself but his real contribution to the community has been as a beta tester for games like Warhammer 40k, Lord of the Rings, EPIC: Armageddon, Battlefield Evolution, Victory at Sea, Supersystem, Chaos in Carpathia, Incursion and Secrets of the Third Reich. Recently, he authored his first published ruleset: Battlefield Evolution World at War.

I first ran into Agis over at the beta forum for Incursion, and he also frequently posts new stuff over at the Steve Dean Painting forum.

"Thib-0" (Belgium)

Another member of the Secrets of the Third Reich community, Thib-0 has been posting some quite freaky stuff like monsters that look like the "Thing" and probably the best winter camo vehicles I've seen. Though he also runs this website which specialized in handmade terrain, and the terrain looks pretty fantastic and prices are reasonable if you look at what you get compared to a lot of other similar sites and stores.

There are still more highly skilled people out there and I reckon I will do more of these specials about their talents  in the future.

  2. Good work. There are a lot of forums and you definitely can't and don't want to frequent them all. The Waaagh, B&C, and Lead Adventure forums is where I tend to congregate, they have some great projects posted up there sometimes, though at the B&C you also get a lot of not terribly well painted Space Marines...

    Cheers,

  3. From what I´ve seen I agrre with you that these most defenetly are some of the best painters out there. Intressting though that I recon they all have very diffrent styles and altough all of them work for everything some are more fitting for certain things then others. One can only hope that that level of quality can be reached one day.
