Warriors of Chaos Sorcerer Lord

Hi Volks, today I present to you a miniature I painted at a two day painting session at the workshop of Simon Elsen (Katan) from 5th Dimension in Trier/Germany. Michael from 5th Dimension accompanied Simon for support.
The workshop-miniature, a Warhammer Warriors of Chaos Sorcerer Lord, was an impressive model to paint and I loved it at first sight. The main topic at the workshop was the Wet-in-Wet technique which I think is a very useful and efficient way of painting high-quality miniatures. Beside Wet-in-Wet we looked at topics such as Wood, TMM Silver and Gold, leather, Flesh and other topics such as effects, OSL, blood, dirt, battle damage, freehands etc. It has also been my first experience with water effects. Check it out.

Have fun!


  1. Wow, sehr geil. Sowohl die Base als auch die Bemalung sind sehr stimmig. Das einzige was mir noch einfällt, wäre das Auge im Stab in einer Komplementärfarbe zu bemalen. Aber dann würde es eventuell wieder zu viel Fokus ziehen, was?

  2. Hi Carlos, im Nachhinein sehe ich das genauso wie du. Die OSL Effekte hätten eine andere Farbe bekommen sollen. Ich wollte aber nachträglich an der Workshop Mini nichts mehr ändern.

Starting a Tyranid army: Colorscheme

I've been a miniature hobbyist for over 10 years and have played a lot of different games (Warhammer Fantasy, Infinity, Frostgrave, Malifaux, Kings of War, etc.) but still hunger for more. In my gaming group, my friends convinced me to take a look at the Warhammer 40k lore. After reading a dozen books (Horus Heresy!) and pretty much got sucked into the crazy 40k lore, I decided to get into Warhammer 40.000.  As for my first 40k army choice, I was torn between the Childs of Slaanesh and Tyranids. Really love both design and lore of these 2 armies. Finally, I went with Tyranids because they are easy to paint and I wanted to get more into the lore before heavily converting some Slaanesh forces. Also, there are some stunning non-GW Tyranid designs out there (check out this Instagram account: ) and I was very curious how these models would turn out. To say it upfront: These 3D printed resin miniatures have some amazing details and very high quali

The Sylvaneth of the Cherry Blossom Grove

  The Sylvaneth of the Cherry Blossom Grove is marching to war. I recently finished 3 trees (Treeman Ancient, ordinary Treeman, and the Spirit of Durthu) for the army and now the force is nearly finished. The foundation of the Cherry Blossom Grove lies in the Old Days of Warhammer where the majority of the army consisted of Wood Elves ( Link to an old blog article from 2014 ). Since then a lot of new miniatures have been painted and added to the army and I still plan to extend the Cherry Blossom Grove further in the next couple of months and years. Painting Alarielle of course and some more Kurnoth Hunters and even thinking about a Living City detachment of the Cities of Sigmar battletome. The Sylvaneth treemen of the Cherry Blossom Grove: I converted them a little bit by extending their legs for 1-2 inches to make them taller and put some branches of the old Citadel Forest on their shoulders and backs to make them bigger.
