Bio: A brief tale of how I created and grew this idea
Thirteen years ago I created the STUDIOLEVEL brand from scratch. A decade has since passed and I can confidently say that I know a lot about designing and realizing different miniature battle wargames projects. Their biggest advantage is their uniqueness based on precise craftmanship and painting as well as the highest quality of materials.
It all started somewhere in 1996 or perhaps 1997 with the first Warhammer figures (cheers Dzab and Gizbi!) and battles played on the carpet with the use of books became addictive, but they needed to be diversified. The first models were made from Styrofoam. I found them in the basement after 7 years (2004) and then they ended up at an auction service and – to put it mildly – they were sold for not a fortune. This was when I thought – why not create and paint something new? Something better, more ambitious than those Styrofoam gems?
And that’s how it goes!
The number of orders both, individual ones and those from Ebay were rising. I was drawn in more and more. The interest was proportional to the amount of ideas, that were coming from my head after time. Eventually, I fulfilled my dreams: I created a professional scenery terrain workshop, miniature paint station, photography studio and home office. I want to expand the range of possibilities and extend the offer, so that I can satisfy every player. Every order is carried out with attention to the smallest details, my models have gained a large crowd of satisfied, and thus loyal, customers from all around the world.
I started a legal LTD company in the UK in 2013. By having years of experience, I am able to offer you a platform, where you can watch, order and complement your dream sceneries, terrains and favourite battle fields that are ready to play. You can be sure – no lie about it – that I love what I do and every day I work with an increasing involvement. I am not just a producer, my work is my passion. I am one of the players, so beside the profits, that are certainly important, I get huge satisfaction by diversifying every little battle or war.
How do we met?
We know each other since 2001 maybe 2002, when we were spending time in ultimate group of people made from members of every high school in Cieszyn. Eventhough our footsteps went in different directions, we met occasionally on the bachelor parties and weddings. Breakthrough moment was the in the beginning of 2017 when I had seen Sebastian's work and asked him does he need promotional materials for his projects. Since then we are actively collaborating in new ones.
Why we are a dream team?
We are completing eachother ways of creating. Sebastian is an artist, very passionate and rapid and Tom is a technician, very focused and calm, although we are both punctilious and have keen eyes to details.
