Announcement: A MASSIVE VOODOO Orctober Challenge!

by David

Hey all,

it's that time of the year, again!
In the Massive Voodoo jungle lands the days are getting shorter, leaves are starting to change their color, and Fall is coming. And in its wake: Orctober!

This year, the Massive Voodoo team will join in on the madness, and the Jungle will rumble with orcish savagery and barbarism!

What it means

The MV Orctober is a little painting challenge among the MV team.
The "Rules" are few and simple - just right for an Orc to grasp:

  1. Create one (or more) Orc-themed projects!
  2. Do so until 31 October 2022!

Become a part of #MVOrctober!

We will post our final results right here on the blog in early November,
but look out for WIPs with the #MVOrctober used via Instagram and will pick 8 favourites.

Each one of us participating in the #MVOrctober will pick his favourite and they will be presented in this format.

Each of these 'winnners' will recieve an Artprint of Roman's Orc illustration:

The MV 2022 Orctober Projects


Andy's contribution will be this awesome Orc-fella on a bike from ForgeWorld. He was long lost in the pile of opportunities but found his way back to the table.

Daniele is busy with sculpting super-exciting new stuff, so he will skip this year's Orctober madness.


Hansrainer will paint up a full Snotling Blood Bowl Team:


Johannes is also game - knows nothing about Orcs, therefor decided for one on a dinosaur!


Josua also has a little surprise for us in the works!


Kilian is on board with his interpretation of GW's Swampcalla Shaman from the Kruleboyz range:


Philip is in full swing (pun not intended) preparing a full-frontal-nudity painting class (of course, all highly classy and tasteful, mind you!) for his very own, newly opened art school!

Check out his Freihand Atelier of Fine Art! So, this year, he'll miss out on the Orctober action.


Roman joins the Orc-train with a conversion from Blood Bowl, creating an lonesome Orc Warrior that brawls the streets of Mordheim.


Sebastian will participate with this friendly, well-armed fellow from Mezgike:


David will create a little scene centered on this wonderfully athletic Orc-lady from Artisan Guild - printed, of course, in his favorite scale: 1/72!

by Roman aka jar


Weekend Workshops will be back 2023!
Most of them in the new studio! You can not sign in yet as I am reconstructing my homepage for smoother sign up flow! Stay tuned and save the dates!

Spontanously, I moved studio last weekend as I was presented with a great oppourtunity and luck: A much bigger studio where I can also teach my group seminars. The move was smooth as we just moved from second floor to first floor. I am in the middle of settings things up.

Weekend Workshops
They will be back in 2023. No group workshops will happen in 2022. First dates are set (see banner). You can not sign in yet as I am in the middle of reworking to make signing up easier. Stay tuned!

Private Coachings
Please contact me via mail to if you are interested for your private coaching. Right now I am almost fully booked until early May. There are a handful of possible dates left. New dates for later in 2023 will be available around March 2023.

Etsy News
At the moment updates on etsy went a bit silent due the studio move. Nonetheless, I do prepare some tutorials and step by steps of my actual projects. Additional I am working on the next workbook, which will be a massive tutorial guide that includes my Beginner Workshop content.

YouTube News
Massive Voodoo TV on YouTube will recieve future updates, including Painting Tutorials, Happy Painting Philosophy and more. Massive Voodoo itself will recieve a rebirth in the not so far future. The MV-Team is fully motivated to give this a proper start in the future to come, but keep it as a secret. Pretty sure you do not want to miss the first steps in that direction via:

Thank you for your support!
Keep on happy painting!

FM: Knight of St Lazarus - 1/72

by David

Hey all,

it's David once again, back with a small peek on the latest mini I finished - of course in 1/72 scale. This time it's one of the so called "leper knights" from the Knightly Order of St Lazarus. Check out the order's history over at Wikipedia, it's super interesting.

The mini is a 1/72 print of a 3D sculpt by the incredibly talented Reconquer Designs. Big thanks go out to my jungle brother Josua for the printing help.

In painting the mini and creating the base, I was going for a dusty, desert-type of athmosphere. I wanted to impress the feeling that the knight is standing on a rocky cliff overlooking an arid landscape in the scorching-hot sun of the Levante.

The banner is scratch-made from a piece of paper. If you're interested in how I did this, check the little tutorial I wrote a few weeks ago: Tutorial - How to Make a Banner.

The mini is also at Putty&Paint. If you feel like voting, follow the link:

Thanks for your interest and talk to you soon,


FM: Belladamma Volga

by Roman aka jar

 Hi Jungle,

the first timeI saw this Games Workshop miniature from Age of Sigmar I really wanted to paint here. While using one of the wolves for "Vlkafenryka" I filled the space with some zombies from the Cursed City box.

'Belladamma Volga': a fun piece I painted for explanation purpose during the last private coaching. Miniature is for sale! Check back with this link:
