When I began to collect the Republik for Star Wars Legion I intended to recreate Hawkbat Battalion from the first Clone Wars movie. But since my sculpting skills are not that good and it took me far to long to sculpt a cloak on a clone I decided to drop that idea and use that single cloaked clone as a squad leader for my 41st Elite Corps Clones that accompany my Wookiee force.
My name is Matthias and I am born in 1984. I am living in Germany and I am in the miniature painting hobby since 2002 right now.
Beside being a painter and gamer, I am married and a proud dad of a little son.
I started miniature painting and wargaming with Lord of the Rings from Games Workshop. At this time I had no idea that this hobby will accompany me for more as a decade now. I just fell in love to use colors in such a different way I was used to to this point. Sure thing, painting miniatures was always only one portion as I enjoyed playing miniatures games as much.
Some years after starting with the Lord of the Rings Battle Strategy Game, I found out that there was so much more interesting wargames to discover. So I stick my nose into the worlds of AT-43, the Star Wars Miniatures Battles Game from West End Games, Dystopian Wars, Dystopian Legions, Frostgrave, Bolt Action, Freebooters Fate and at last Star Wars Legion.
As longtime Star Wars fan, the annoucement of Star Wars Legion was like finding the Holy Grail regarding my hobby and I was hooked ever since.
On this site you will find a showcase of my painted miniatures. Have fun discovering my work.
