Matt Levin Chess Set Complete!!

Okay, here are the final photos of Matt Levin's fantasy bust chess set and it's massive. Here are the shots of the black pieces and a complete set photo at the end. See a couple of posts down for the white pieces. Matt recommends a board size of 4" per square!! Thats one massive chessboard! But if you love cabinet making with a little bit of wood carving and art you could go to town on a wonderful elaborate design as these pieces will be cast which is great news. I think the board would be best designed as a whole table really but I would love to see what a skilled woodworker could come up with to complement this set - I'm imagining a lot of Narnian or Mid Summer Nights Dream type imagery. Utterly insane sculpting, here they are.......


A Test Post

Just a Test post from my phone and to see if the marvel  of technology promised by this Android Blogger app is all its cracked up to be. I think some photo hosting intregration or lack thereof is the first issue I see. I believe the photo size often gets messed up when uploading direct from your pc. I have been forced to put everything on hosting. Hmmm......

Chess set photos from Matt Levin coming very shortly don't go away.

Way Back When....

I was recently thinking about the first miniatures I ever owned and endeavoured to track down some pictures. It didn't take me long, not even minutes in fact!!! Big thanks go to all those people out there who go out their way to maintain websites on all the small things in life!!!! Here are some pictures of the first mini's I ever got my childlike paws on, I can't remember which of the two exactly came first, I'm thinking it was the wizards, but anyway - these two sets were my first and began my love affair with miniatures and models...

All these old models are cataloged over on where you will find plenty of information about them all. It's a shame I have no photographs of any of them that I painted myself, oh hang on - no it isn't lol.

Check back soon, I am working on doing the next proper blog entry. Might even be updating the workbench soon to with new progress photographs.
