    • That sounds great Chris. How big room will you get? I am afraid that my little space will be too small for bigger projects… I have a few alternatives for when to make bigger things but none that are ideal. But beside a new gaming mat most of my future work will be painting armies, and build some smaller terrain pieces, so I guess it will work for me :)

      Thanks for writing

    • OMG! Those buildings of yours are fantastic! Thank you very much for the link, the whole blog of yours is filled with great inspiration.

      During my time away from the hobby I have been wondering what went wrong… Especially with my french farm houses. I remember making them was pure happiness and I wonder why I never completed anything. I found out that the process of making moulds and all that was something I just didn’t like. That part was the bit where my creativity stood totally still and felt like a boring and unwanted task that was forced upon me. I crafted like 5 house in a few evenings and loved every second of it, but as soon as I was ready to make the moulds my inspiration disappered. And all this moulding thing was something I only did so that I could save time…!?
      But why save time from doing something that is fun?

      I hope that when I am soon building armies and terrain again, that I have learned how to put my effort where it makes me happy.

      My approach on making houses have to be different now that I am not going to make resin houses. The foam which I have been using is too fragile for terrain pieces. I have some ideas to how I can move forward. More on that later ;-)

  1. Hello Thomas

    Are you thinking in coming back to the hobby? and continue with this blog?
    Hope it would be so.

    And hope to see more entries and share experiences.

    Thanks

    • ey Jorge!

      I was actually on the verge to continue making some terrain a couple of months ago. I bought all that I needed to make a new gaming mat. Had cut lots of sticks to use as a base for tree making. At the same time I also started to paint som figures for French and Indian war (28mm), much of this terrain that wound be able to use for WWII 1/72 too.

      But as usually something came up. This time a bit more dramatic. Illness struck, and I am now in treatment, which will end in a week. If I am cured, I will be back in a couple of months. But right now the focus is on getting better. I am really sorry to not be able to give a better answer than this :’-( The WWII era is so interesting to play and I really long to continue soon again.

      Best regards
      Thomas Nielsen
