  1. The Chaos Divide 14

    Heres a fairly big update from me, i have been working on my 2nd squad of thousand sons marines. In general i am happy with them, they are painted to a table top quality, but i did find myself losing focus after a while. I think for two reasons, first was that i have been working on tsons marines for the last two months now and the quality of the models were not as good as the first squad since they were a recycled chaos marine unit from my old original army. Anyway enough of my rambling here is ...
  2. Stag's Leap

    I wasn't sure how the fur and hide pallette was going to come together, but I'm happy with how this is working out. I'm managing to find good contrasts while still keeping the overall effect very muted and staying away from highlighting to white which would be absurd here.

  6. Prepare to be consumed.

    Well today I bought my first ever 40K miniatures. They are sat not 5 feet from me glaring at me going make me and lets feed.I headed over to Halifax (UK) to a model shop called Halifax Modelers World at the Piece Hall. Upon entering I was amazed at the ammount of models you could fit in such a small area. Anyway I was a man with a mission and headed straigh to the counter.Id allready called so I knew the had the Tyranid Battle Force pack in. I also wanted to bulk the army out a bit. So i got a box ...
  7. General about me.

    Hi all, welcome to my first blog ever.  Also my first attepmt at modeling and painting.  Ive been into roleplaying for about 20 years but the wargaming thing kinda passed me by as being far too expencive and time consuming.However, I have now found myself in a postition with money and time to spend in doing something to give me focus.Just before christmas 2008 I heard that ADB, the makers of Star Fleet Battles, had a streamlined version of that game out called Federation Commander so i ...
  8. For those here at Cool Mini or Not

    Let me start off by saying that there are alot of great painters here, but there are those like myself that paint for fun more than the international fame that winning the golden daemon would bring.  Now with that said, I think that some people don't realize that some people come here just to show off their work, not so much for it to be rated or to be scrutinized. I happen to be one of the best painters in the Garden Grove CA area, not the best but I'm fairly up there. For some reason most ...

  10. Stag Party

    I'm doing this conversion for a friend's wood elf lord. The figure he wants mounted on it is a bit big on the backend- sculpted to fit a taller/wider mount, so his flowing robes etc would leave a couple glaring millimeters space twixt his cape and his mount. So, this stag gets filled out with taller fur, and a section of saddle to make up the difference.

    The elf lord will be GW. The stag is from Chronopia.
