This site is dedicated to painting and converting miniature figures.
The Gallery is the center of the site displaying my painted miniatures - including two Golden Demon Slayer Sword winners and my Crystal Brush Duchess Death Project.
The site also has a Tutorials and Essay section, but my day-to-day writings on the hobby and my project is found on my blog.

September 23rd 2014: A few additions to the gallery: An all-time classic Naugty Night Goblin raising a particular finger to enemy, an awsome Dwarf Runelord from early 2014, a Tempestus Scion Trooper and finally an old-school Techmarine painted up in a yellow colour scheme.

April 3rd 2014: News on my booklet, POST-CENTAUR PAINTING, is up on my http://miniaTEXTures.blogspot.com.

April 2nd 2014: Alright, what just happened? Well, I suppose life happened. I haven't updated this website for quite a while. However, I have continued producing stuff in the miniature painting hobby. The neglect of this site is mostly due to the fact that I started a blog, http://miniaTEXTures.blogspot.com. Since moving into the blog-sphere I have treated this website as a kind of gallery/back-catalogue of my work.

I would love to give the various websites of mine a really big overhaul integrating them all, but that would take time away from painting miniatures. Not a scenario that I would like. The plan will probably be to change this site into just a gallery and then keep the new models, WIPs, and random stuff on the blog.

Oh, and then there is something about a booklet...

November 15th 2011: Grumlok and Gazbag, a huge Warhammer Online collector's model painted up and added to the Gallery.
The model has also been added to my CMON-Gallery: www.coolminiornot.com/291838.

November 7th 2011: Started doing a little writing somewhere else... http://miniaTEXTures.blogspot.com

October 20th 2011: Desktop-shot of the Week updated: A bizarre mix of projects...

October 4th 2011: Desktop-shot of the Week updated: Trouble on the mini-cabinet shelf...

September 28th 2011: Two bits of News...

First up, back in April 2011 I was interviewed by RHQ TV at Adepticon where I entered the Crystal Brush Awards. Both Gavin and Andrew, who run this "hobby-web-TV-channel" were fantastic people and I had a great time talking to them both during the actual interview and at other times during the weekend in Chicago. About 17 mins hobby-talk on miniatures, concepts, sketching, and painting competitions. The sound goes off for about 30 seconds or so but apart from that I think it looks and sounds great.

About a month ago Michal Machowski asked me if I had heard about the competition Hussar in Poland and invited me to attend. Now, I had to pass the invitation, but having browsed the Event's website I wanted to draw attention to it here. Looks really cool, and sounds as if there is a great and friendly atmosphere there. So if you're in Poland or nearby, then do remember to check it out.

September 20th 2011: Desktop-shot of the Week updated: My Pimp-my-wizard-40K figure is finished and doing battle along with some old friends.

September 6th 2011: Desktop-shot of the Week updated: Painting my Pimp-my-wizard-40K figure - some colours blocked in other with shading. Nothing finished yet though.

Metallics done on the orc.

September 1st 2011: Desktop-shot of the Week updated: My Pimp-my-wizard-40K model, a deathcult lady gone mechano-mad is finally primed and ready brushwork. Deadline is September 10th. Also skin of a recent orc project is done...

Still taking commissions btw.

August 24th 2011: The transition from plastic sorcerers into 40K deathcult lady is almost done!
Desktop-shot of the Week updated showing the conversion so far. Painting should start soon....

August 9th 2011: Open for commissions!
My schedule is again open to accept commissions - Army commanders, exquisite roleplaying characters, bring'em on...
So if you want a classic JRN paintjob in your collection, then head over to the Commission-section and have a look.
Or you could simply drop me an email and tell me what you are after and we will take it from there.

July 12th 2011: Planning to convert the new brilliant Chaos plastic sorcerers into 40K characters!
Desktop-shot of the Week updated showing a little of my plan...

July 2nd 2011: Another go at the classic Death Company colour scheme - another Death Company Space Marine painted up.

June 3rd 2011: Added a new link to the link section: Crooked Eye Studios - the website of Zach Lanier and Todd Swanson.
Both great painters who I had the pleasure of meeting at the Crystal Brush Awards in Chicago. Great people, great painters, and they do have some very nice minis on their website too. So check it out.

May 22nd 2011: New projects. Not competition stuff. Just stuff for pure hobby-fun!
Desktop-shot of the Week updated...

May 3rd 2011: LITTLE KNIGHT
My latest Runic Miniatures sculpt and paintjob: a Little Knight to go along on adventures with the Little Princess.
Created for fun and fast painting I actually managed to paint the model in less than 3 hours. Simple and easy. Now, what model to do next...?

If you feel like painting one of these Little Characters then have a look at the Runic Miniatures website through the link above for prices and ordering details.
Finally, Little Knight has been added to my CMON-gallery: www.coolminiornot.com/277677.

May 1st 2011: Crystal Brush project on CMON
I have finally taken the time to add Duchess Death, my insane mechanical undead centaur to my CoolMiniOrNot-gallery: www.coolminiornot.com/277542.
So not you can vote again and add comments as well. Thanks.

April 11th 2011: WOW! What a journey!

Having been back a week now, the many impressions from my weekend in Chicago has begun to settle in. A long weekend of looking at miniatures, talking and teaching about miniatures, and making new friends within the hobby.

Lots of meetings with people that I have corresponded with over the years... or simply heard about. Jenifer Haley, Marike Reimer Todd Swanson, Zach Lanier, Bennett Blalock-Doome, Rick Taylor, Alfonso, Dave Taylor, Chris Borer, Mathieu Fontaine, David Diamondstone, James and Cathy Wappel, the crew from RHQ-tv, Chern and David of CMON, and Mike McVey. Plus a lot more enthusiastic hobbyists who made the weekend most enjoyable. I was so pleased to meet you all, and I really felt very welcome. Thanks.

On Friday evening and Saturday morning and afternoon I was teaching classes and had a great time doing so. I saw lots of "so-this-is-how-it's-done!"- and "Wow-it-really-worked!"-expressions, and I hope the people who took my classes has taken home some good tricks and tips for their future painting projects.

Sunday late afternoon had the Crystal Brush Award Ceremony, but before that I went into Chicago to feel the big city, the buildings, and was blown away by a portrait by Rembrandt in the Art Museum. All thoughts vanished while I just stared at the canvas. Fantastic.

The Crystal Brush Awards 1.0 proved a great start for the competition. The top entries were great models, and although there were a few weak categories in regards to the number of entries, I am sure that this will not be the case next year. Congratulations again to Marike for placing number 1 overall. I loved her model, and felt good about placing second to that.

Will I go again? I would love to! Will I take the time? Depends on many things.
The great thing that I really enjoyed about Crystal Brush was the fact that they had teamed up with a very dedicated gaming con, Adepticon. Getting the chance to teach, and meet a lot of the American painters was my reason to go. Another reason was that I believed that I had the right "calibre" project for the competition.

Now I will take a few weeks to let the impressions settle further, and start working on a few less time-consuming project for a while. But I DO have ideas for another complex project...

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

March 31st 2011: The coming weekend of April 1st to April 4th is Crystal Brush weekend!
If you want to see the whole creating process for my entry check out my project documentation.

I also made three little videos presenting the project:
Early mock-up testing the baseing principle.
Final model - short version (about 4MB), and
Final Model - long version (about 10 MB).

Voting goes on this weekend - have a look at CrystalBrush.com and see how it all works. No one really knows yet so it will be quite interesting.

March 3rd 2011: Just as I have done for X-mas I am counting down to the major mini-painting event in Spring, the CRYSTAL BRUSH PAINTING COMPETITION. From today I will try to present you bits from the project process, and with less than a month to the event there is yet a lot to do. For the first updates I will be showing updates from February, but I am sure that the images from the recent past will soon catch up with reality...
Today's Crystal Brush count-down: One of the main part for my project - a limited edition model, GallowGlass, ready for the various hobby tools...

February 22nd 2011: ADEPTICON UPDATE!
Adepticon is coming, and so is the CRYSTAL BRUSH PAINTING COMPETITION, as well as the deadline for my painting project for the competition. I really look forward to seeing the convention, meeting loads of people, and seeing lots and lots of fantastic miniatures.

I will also be teaching classes. I have prepaired 2 classes - one os a quick and dirty practice session where everyone paints a Space Marine helmet to PERFECTION within 2 hours. The other class is a discussion based seminar where I talk about my project-process and show a bunch of images about choosing ideas, making crucial design-choices, deciding on colours, and so on. The seminars can be seen on the Adepticon's Hobby senimar page.

Updates on my competition project will follow in the beginning of March, so stay tuned!

January 10th 2010: HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Desktopshot-of-the-Week updated: Showing lots of GD-projects from the past...
I dug out all the previous GD-projects that I still have in my own collection (save the Chaos army from 1998, which would really distort the look of the picture). Why? Well, I got to decide which ones are going to the States in April. After some time pondering the idea I have decided to travel to the Crystal Brush Competition at Adepticon in Chicago! I have started my project, which will incorperate elements like those in my duel entries, a classic JRN-colour scheme, and an interesting touch of surprise. I am dead excited about the project and I hope you will like it also! I'll also be teaching some classes and I really look forward to this since I love this part of the hobby - meeting new people and sharing thoughts and skills.
Happy Painting!

Or you could simply drop me an email and tell me what you are after and we will take it from there.

October 21st 2010:
Colours are back to normal. I like the new princess paint job, but I cannot see the site wearing blue anymore...
So, back to dark red!

Also, The Little Princess has been uploaded to my CoolMiniOrNot-gallery: http://coolminiornot.com/262055.

October 15th 2010: LITTLE PRINCESS
Here is my latest paintjob - also my latest sculpt: Little Princess is a very personal project involving time spent talking about miniatures and fairytales with my 6-years-old daughter. It is also the first sculpt for quite a while for Runic Miniatures, where it has just been added to the webstore.

A central goals for the design process was to make a mini that would be easy to paint with big facial features and a simple yet fun design.
Another goal was to just enjoy the hobby and sculpt what I felt like sculpting...
I hope you like the little princess.

October 14th 2010: New Sculpt - New Look!
At least for a few days more I am keeping the sky-blue look on my site to celebrate my recent sculpt as featured on the top logo.
More pics of the little princess will go up soon and she should shortly be available in the Runic Miniatures' webstore.
Stay tuned...

October 4th 2010: Death Company Marine in the gallery
I have finally taken photos of my GD entry - Death Company Space Marine in =I= scale.
The Marine in my CMON-gallery: http://coolminiornot.com/260982. As a Death Company Marine the model was the classic pallette of Black, red, white plus metallics. I made this Marine specifically as a hommage to the art of John Blanche who has been a great inspiration for more than a decade. Thanks.

September 28th 2010: Golden Demon UK

An honourably project I think, so head over and check out how you can enter the competition at the WAMP forum.

May 28th 2009
A small update and news. Finished about 2 months ago, here is a really old Chaos Warrior.

...Also, the past months has been a rather quiet period on the site, but there is a great reason: I am now the proud father of 3 children - the last one born in early April.
I still have great plans for GD but there is little time for anything else at the moment...

April 14th 2009
Desktopshot-of-the-Week updated: Old School Chaos Warrior WIP - I love these old minis. I only have a few bits left on the warrior plus some work on the base...

April 9th 2009
Desktopshot-of-the-Week updated: Gardening can surely be hobby-related!

March 1st 2009
New model in the Gallery: A conversion that I decided to call Skull Girl.
Creating her was a "just for fun"-project that I did during X-mas last year.
Uploaded her to CMON this morning: www.coolminiornot.com/215174.

February 15th 2009
Photographed one of my latest minis - an Imperial Guard Veteran painted mostly for fun and to practice using a liquid masking product from Vallejo.
As usual I have uploaded him to CMON: www.coolminiornot.com/213907.

February 2nd 2009: I have gotten through the first stage of a tutorial on making a classic fantasy base with lots of grass, flowers and roots just like on my Empire Gold Wizard.

Desktopshot-of-the-Day updated: The finished paintjob: This is how Teclis looked when I took him to the UKGD... CMON-link: www.coolminiornot.com/208762.

However, this was in fact only a 31 hours paintjob... and I (plus a bunch of my friends) thought that he really deserved some more attention - freehand, subtler shades, etcetera. Therefore the rest of the X-mas count-down will show how I went to business to improve the figure...

In regards to general news about the line I have another goblin design about half finished, but overall - I am moving my hobby business towards commission jobs and the odd design work.

During the summer I took WIP-pics of the model all the time and now - to finish the project properly - I will add the details I didn't have time to do back in September.

The first Desktopshot-of-the-Day shows my initial projects sketch... Enjoy!

Also, I just managed to finish this Death Company Space Marine, which can be found in the Gallery. CMON-link: www.coolminiornot.com/207154

Finally, a new paintjob an Empire Warrior Priest whoose radical pursuit of heretics seems to take him on a path toward unhealthy bloodlust and the chaos powers.

Desktop-shot of the Week updated: I have started painting the flesh on the Warrior Priest. Also, I cleaned up the classic Teclis model from 1993 (or so) using a tutorial written by Stebastian Archer. WOW! It actually does tell if you wash the model carefully with soap. Never though that would do much, but it certainly shows!

February 22nd 2008
