Hello all,
Since I've now been in this forum for quite some time, I always wanted to show some of my stuff, but neither got the time nor the skills to photograph it properly.

I hope this will change in the near future and thus I'm going to show some of my stuff.

In the last few years my big passion has been 15mm. It started when I got those excellent Copplestone barbarians which sadly are not supported anymore, and then moved on tho Warhammer 40k.

I was a fan of the background since the days of Rogue Trader and happily remember the time when 2nd Edition came out and I started an Ork force.

I neither have the time nor the resources to paint 28mm anymore with the exception of an Oldhammer Chaos warband (and some Sapce Orks I still possess), but quickly realized that in 15mm I could do and field all that I ever wanted. Problem then was, most of it needed to be scratch-built or one would have to search for proxies.

In recent years many excellent companies have started to produce 15mm Space Opera minis and those are my friends. I happily collect the models from various companies and have a battle-ready Genestealer Cult, a Space Ork Horde and several units of Eldar, Space Marines, Arbitrators, Jokaero, and ct.

In this thread I'll show you some of these, but please be patient, as I am a total "n00b" when it comes to photography!  :o

Florian a.k.a DivisMal

The first model is actually a private commision done by the magnificent Stuart of SLAP Miniatures.

It's a beautiful miniature, I think, and Stu and I made it the secret present for all the backers from his recent Space Dorkz Kickstarter.

It arrived in my house on Tuesday and I could not wait to give it a paintjob.


Gentlemen, ta-da...the Father, also known as the spiritual liege of the Four-armed Emperor!

...also shown from the back!

You can see my thumb as a scale. The little guy has awesome details for his size. A sculpting masterpiece.

PS
I still have some casts of him which I won't need! :)

Really boss! I was so chuffed with getting that from the Kickstarter - I'm not going to paint him until I can gather a 15mm genestealer cult, he's too precious! Your pics look great - lovely painting.

Great to hear that the cult is spreading! I used GW's old Genestealer familars, which are top 15mm. I still have some should you be interested, they nowadays come pricey at the bay.

Cultists and brood brothers you'll find plenty. Coven limousine, look at matchbox & co.
Hybrids however are difficult. I'll show mine soon.

Here is another one of the father, this time sitting on his throne. I haven't had time to finish the base yet.
