About

About this blog:

This blog serves to tell the story of KrautScientist’s hobby exploits in the world of miniature wargaming. It will mainly feature content from the worlds of Warhammer 40k and Inquisitor with the odd post about… well, anything that I might find interesting.

The point of this blog is not to show awe-inspiring perfection: I am not a Golden Demon level painter, obviously. Neither do I excel at building terrain, nor are my conversions the most fantastic you will ever see. My aim is to show you that it’s possible to get things done if you only try to, even if you’re – like me – not a wargaming genius.

About me:

I’m a thirtysomething German who has been addicted to cutting apart little plastic men since the mid-nineties. Apart from wargaming, I enjoy films, music, videogames and literature. I’m blogging in English because that gives me at least one sensible “grown up” reason for writing about a universe where people use chainsaws as swords. I am also not actually a scientist.

About you:

I know absolutely nothing about you, of course. But if you’re reading this (or one of the other posts) and have any questions, remarks or feeback, then feel free to comment in English or German or contact me at KrautScientist [at] yahoo.com

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

    I just fell across this by mistake and what a dam fine one, your work is great and I love the Renegade ogres.

    The use of parts are great and the paint job really works well, I have found this inspirational and a real joy.

    Please continue to produce great stuff.

  2. Ha, found your blog! I was too curious to wait for your response, so I did a quick Google research on “KrautScientist”. I am going to bookmark you in return because I like the way you portrait Chaos, especially cultists and mutants. Also, you do 28mm Inquisitor miniatures while I am collecting models and bitz for inquisitorial henchmen to use for Dark Heresy. Again, you are so bookmarked 😉

    Cheers!

    Howdy, saw your killer Angron conversion: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/2550/432972.page

    Really awesome work. I love it, and it’s inspired me to try one of my own. I have a few questions about it…first, where is the crown? What kit dis that come from? Also, the spine addition — what kit is that from, or did you sculpt it?

    Really appreciate any insight and help. Cheers and awesome work!

    • Shhh, you’re spoiling all the fun for the other readers 😉

      But here are some quick answers, anyway 😉

      – I suppose by “crown” you mean the crest behind his head, right? That’s a bit from the warshrine of chaos kit.

      – The spine mainly came from the Khorne Bloodsecrator (banner bearer) from the Age of Sigmar starter box: He’s normally wearing the spine as a “ponytail” of sorts 😉

      Anyway, hope this helps!

        Thanks — sorry, I wasn’t trying to spoil your fun!

        One last question, the belt buckle….that circular World Eaters looking waist piece…what is that from?

        All your help is appreciated….and your work is really great!

      • The belt buckle is actually a gut plate from the Ogre bulls kit (or whatever they may be called now) — and it also happens to look perfectly like a World Eaters legion badge 😉

  7. hi, it is posible to buy few custom Obliterator parts sculpted by Thamier kit?

    • Hey man,

      you’re not the first to ask 😉 I think that would have to be Thamier’s choice, so feel free to contact him via The Bolter & Chainsword. Last thing I heard, he was actually looking into the option of having his stuff cast, so maybe you’ll be lucky — eventually 😉

  8. Hi there.
    Was looking for inspiration for inquisition psyker units – preferably female. In google picture search I found a girl from your blog that I absolutely loved, I think you called her a rogue psyker. I can’t find the picture on the blog, though. :/
    Would love to know how you built her, and what pieces you used.
    Regards,
    Karl

    wow… Thanks man.. randomly stubbled onto your page and I’m loving what i’m seeing. Keep up the good work!

    Hey.
    I’ve followed your blog for a while now, in fact you’re a main attribute as to why I’ve started doing the hobby again. I gave up about 10 years ago (not really sure why now that I look back on it lol) but I think I read somewhere that your on instagram? Was wondering what your IG name is on there?
    Also, I’m crying for some of the forgeworld conversion kits for world eater terminators. I’ve tried ebay and (obviously) forgeworld but no luck. Any idea of somewhere else I could try?

    • Hey man, thanks for the kind words! Glad to have played my part in bringing you back to the fold 😉

      I am not on Instagram, actually, and I am not really interested in using social networks for my hobby communications, preferring more “old-fashioned” forms like message boards or blogs. That being said, wherever I set up shop, you’ll always find me using the same handle — KrautScientist.

      As for the terminator conversion kits, unless you find a hobbyist willing to part with his own, you may be out of luck, at least where legal avenues are concerned: It’s no secret that recasts of virtually every Forgeworld kits are readily available, but purchasing them isn’t exactly the most ethical thing to do, so I hope you’ll forgive me for not linking to any possible sources.

      Anyway, hope you’ll keep reading the blog and commenting! 🙂
