I welcome ideas, perspectives and comments from other experienced gamers and hobbyists with similar interests.
The best way to start out is to pay my respects to the hobbyists whose work and ideas inspired me to go down this path.
First and foremost is Franktactica at the "Figuren und Geschichten" blog in Germany. His conversions, paint, terrain, photography are all amazingly top notch and inspirational - no matter what the period. Hochachtung, Frank!!!!!!!!!
|Amazing work! See more at his blog linked above.|
|His original vision|
My third muse on this quixotic journey is Michael at "Dalauppror" who has translated Dux Britanniarum to 15th c. Sweden in his "Dux Suecia" variant. Again, wonderfully painted models, beautiful gaming table and terrain, nice photography photo shopping out reality - and all in his non-native language. And he's prolific. Much to admire at his blog.
There are other influences, in other periods and scales that I'll add soon. In the meantime, one more image from Tomasz Jedruszek, my favorite artist for GRRM's works:
