Episode 2 is live! In this one I paint a Fire Warrior to match my growing army (I’m switching away from the previous blue/black look).
I’m starting a new Video Series titled Quick ‘n Dirty where you can watch me paint models from start to finish, as fast as I possibily can. Since even my fastest painting can be pretty slow, I’ve time-lapsed this one at 4x speed.
In this first Episode, I paint an Ork Nob to match the colours of my “100 Orks in 8 Days” models.
A repeat commissioner has come back to expand his Space Marine army, the Ghost Falcons. Below are a group of Sternguard Veterans, a Devastator Squad, and a Space Marine Commander equipped with a scratch-built Power Weapon – an Adeptus Custodes-style Halberd with Storm Bolter.
Here’s two single-model commissions I wrapped up for MiniWarGaming: an Eldar Warlock, and a Dark Eldar Archon. I only had very loose guidelines for the paint scheme on the Warlock, and I’m quite happy with how it turned out.
I recently got to paint Lelith Hesperax from GW’s new Dark Eldar line, and I have to say that this model alone makes playing the army tempting. It’s an absolutely fantastic sculpt with great detail and proportioning.
The model comes with two left arms – one with a Dagger, and one with a Spear. I mounted both arms on interchangeable pins so that either one could be used. The Eldar Banner Lelith normally stands on was lengthened, and I added a skull from a Space Marine Banner to the top, and then painted it as a fallen Ultramarines Standard.
This Space Marine Command Squad was painted in the Blood Ravens colours from Dawn of War. Every member of this squad except for the Apothecary has a Power Weapon with freehand detailing, and the banner artwork was freehanded as well. My bits box is now somewhat lacking in Power Weapons
Just a quick update today. I haven’t had a Chaos Space Marine commission in quite a while, so I was happy to see this request – Abaddon the Despoiler! I’ll be honest, I forgot how annoying all the fiddly gold trim on Chaos models can be
This is the first of two Necron Tomb Stalkers I’m painting. An acquaintance managed to snag two of them at Games Day UK 2010 before they were officially released.
These Space Marine Terminators of the Salamanders Chapter have been painted beyond Level 3. All of the metallic work has been done using non-metallic metal techniques, and freehand chipping and weathering has been added to the armor on all 5 models. The custom Magma bases were made using adhesive cork.
These models are being raffled at a fundraiser in St. John’s Newfoundland this coming weekend, to raise money for diabetics and diabetes research in Canada.
