I'm Ana Polanšćak, a miniaturist specialized in crafting heavily customized gaming and display pieces in a distinctive macabre style. My work is focused on creating grim, immersive worlds through tabletop miniature projects. This encompasses everything from modelling, sculpting, painting, building scenery and crafting gaming paraphernalia, to writing, game design, graphic design and miniature photography. After fifteen years of painting miniatures as a hobbyist, I became a full-time brush for hire in 2020. I work on commission, for private collectors and gamers, as well as companies in the tabletop miniature industry.

If you happen to be completely new to the world of tabletop miniatures, the How's It Done? graphics will give you the basic idea of what I do: 

Check the Gallery for past miniature projects, or the Gardens of Hecate Blog to keep up with what I'm up to. Visit the Tutorials section for step-by-step instructions on modelling and painting miniatures.
