Get to know our Painters – Interview with Wojtek

Hello there!

This is another post from the series of articles in which you will have opportunity to get to know our team.

Today we want to introduce you to Wojtek. He is one of our specialists for painting tanks and other vehicles, especially historical ones. Without further ado we’re going straight into the interview! πŸ˜€

Do you remember your first painted miniature? What are your memories associated with it?

The first fully painted and complete figurine of that kind was probably the Space Marines from the third edition Warhammer 40K starter set, in the colors of the Black Templars.

Among the painted miniatures (which left an impression on you), which one provided you with the most joy during the painting/creative process, and why?

It’s hard for me to name just one figurine because I often work on large projects, but I remember the Primaris Repulsor of the Space Wolves well. I liked how the shading on the armor turned out, the hand-painted battle damage, and the freehand wolf heads.

What are your favorite painting techniques, and how do they influence your artworks?

I use a lot of airbrushing and enjoy experimenting with modeling chemistry. Oil washes, chipping medium, modeling effects, pigments – anything that can be used for weathering.

If you could paint any model without time constraints, what would you choose?

Maybe something from the Death Guard. Perhaps Mortarion. With a model like that, you can really express yourself both in painting and modeling.

Do you draw inspiration from specific artists? Whom do you follow on Instagram?

I follow a lot of creators. I try to observe the best ones and learn from their interesting techniques in order to continuously develop myself.

Do you play wargames? If so, what are your favorite systems?

It would be more accurate to say that I collect wargaming miniatures because I have little time for playing. Some of my favorite games (for various reasons) include Star Wars Legion, Warhammer 40K, and Bolt Action.
