IMPORTANT: International Miniature Event Calender inside!

Deutsch im Anschluss

2013 - The YEAR of the MINIATURE
as proclaimed by GP Zaphod Beeblebrox

Hey you hoopy froods!

I will maintain a Google Calendar with all of the international painting and miniature events for all of you to see and use.

Please share this with all of your nerdy friends! You might also want to post this in the forums and blogs of your choice. 

Since my main server is still right now, I cant receive email at the moment, but I will post an address at which you can send information about YOUR events (even small shows, painting classes etc...). Until then, just add them to the comments below.

Here is the Google Calendar. Right now there is not much in it, but more will be added as soon as the information gets to me. So keep it coming ;)

Click here to get to the full screen HTML Google Calendar
Here the HTML feed source and the iCal import settings.

I will also add the link to this post in the menu bar under EVENTS 2013. 

We will try to visit as many events this year as possible. I hope to meet you there - and if not, KNOW you are not missing anything, as we will report from all the events we go to AND the ones we can't attend! Right here! And on our future site for paintingbuddha (coming around March 1st or so). 

Stay hoopy! 


Hey you hoopy froods!

Ich pflege derzeit einen Google Calendar mit allen internationalen Mal- und Miniaturenevents für 2013 - dem Jahr der Miniatur.

Bitte teilt diesen Post mit all euren Nerd-Freunden! Vielleicht könnt ihr dieses sogar im Blog/Forum eurer Wahl bekanntgeben - jeh mehr Leute davon wissen, desto 'voller' wird der Kalender. ;)

Da mein Haupt-Server immer noch down ist, könnt Ihr mir IM MOMENT keine email schicken, aber sobald das wieder geht, werde ich extra hierfür eine Adresse einrichten. Dann könnt ihr mir EURE Events ansagen (auch kleinere Shows, Painting Classes usw.) Bis dahin, einfach unten in den Kommentaren eure Termine eintragen.

Hier der Google Kalender. Im Moment ist noch nicht so viel drin, aber sobald ich mehr Termine erfahre, findet ihr sie hier. Also immer her damit ;) 

Klicky klicky für den Full Screen HTML Google Calendar
Und hier der HTML feed sowie die iCal import settings.

Ich werde diesen Post unter EVENTS 2013 im Menü verlinken. 

Wir werden dieses Jahr an so vielen Events teilnehmen, wie wir nur können. 

Ich hoffe, einige von euch persönlich zu treffen! Und wenn ihr nicht teilnehmen könnt, DON'T PANIC: Wir werden von allen Events Berichten, auf die wir fahren - und von vielen, auf denen wir nicht sind (mehr dazu später). 

Stay hoopy!

Server Blues continues

Hey guys!

Terrific and terrifying news from the REVOLUTION Headquarters. 

Our main server will be out for at least another week - we currently have around 1400 less daily views than before it went down. 

I really would like to apologize for the inconvenience, but it will take the time it takes, its not in my control... 

On a brighter side, filming with tripple-sword winner Stephan Rath (who also plays the didgeridoo as it turns out) is complete now. And the minis he painted are awesome. 

We will disclose our 'new and improved' product starting February 1st. So no rush to buy now if you are still thinking about it - more detailed news will be available soon - and most importantly in time for you to decide ;)  

In the meantime we are working day and night to make the best product we can. I am excited - and it won't take too long before we ship. We are still on track for March 1st. :) 

The good news for our giveaways

As you know we have 42 awesome giveaways for you lined up. Originally we planned to draw the winners tomorrow on January 7th. Since three out of four people can't get to our site now, I decided to extend the giveaway (again) until January 31st! 

Check out the REVOLUTION menu to find the giveaways! Good luck - and again sorry for the burning server ;) 

So stay hoopy - and use the time for some happy painting :)

Day 2 of filming with tripple sword winner Stephan "Derwish" Rath (CMON) is underway. Looks like he alone will fill 2-3 fun-packed DVDs at minimum. Ben "White Rabbit" Komets (CMON; another tripple sword winner, and second painter for our first DVD Instruction Set) visited to hang out with us last night. So we had the six slayer sword steakknife set in my couch-free living room - and a lot fun ;) 
Totally misleading image!
So what's new?

As production of DVD Season 1 - "Target Identified" draws to a close, on target for shipping around March 1st, we are already working on our Season 2 for our May 1st release.

I don't really want to tease (lies!), but I for one can't wait - looking awesomely funky already!

All I say is this - in the next season we show you "how the cookie crumbles" :D

In the meantime Stephan and I will continue working on "Yannet" - the female assassin in our set. And so that you know how the mood is here, I have found the perfect "REVOLUTION" sound of the day: 

REVOLUTION - The Qemists

Stay hoopy, and happy painting!


Server down :(

Claims has nothing to do with broken server.

Good morning! Or is it ;)

Quick note - my server that links to is currently down. So if you read this, you got here through

I am working on resolving the issue, but it might take a few days. 

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Luckily, the shop at is working - different hoster - phew...

Hoopy New Year - The REVOLUTION continues...

It has been quite quiet in the last few days...

...because we are busy making the REVOLUTION bigger and better ;) 

But first things first: HOOPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!

By the power I vested in myself I declare 2013 to be the "Year of the Miniature"

Right now I have Stephan "Derwish" Rath with me, recording the painting of the second miniature of our Miniature Painting instruction set - Yannet (the lovely chicken footed assassin gurl). 

We are having a lot of fun and this really shows in the paintjob that Derwish has achieved... 

Base color is up. Yannet's world is upside down.
Like our revolutionary view of The Universe ;) 

Our fancy production studio - light, sound, camera, action!

I forced him to smile so noone knows under which
horrendously fun conditions we work here.

And now back to the acid mines :)
