  1. Inquisitorial land raider. More flatwork

    I finally finished everything I wanted to finish on this mini. The bad thing about commission is that you actually have to paint them , the good thing about commissions is that you can experiment and paint things that you wouldn't normally paint. This particular "mini" by the nature of request involved doing substantial amount of coherent freehand that I have never done before. Well, as a confidence building measure it was very useful.

  2. Death Company

    Just a quick update;All fleshtearer assault troops are complete, and have begun work on the death company and chaplain. Heres a pic of the 'test' marine I did for the death company colours; Shouldn't be too long till my dedicated workspace is complete now, which should make both photo taking and serious painting a lot easier. The deathroller is mostly complete, although it's a bit plain at the moment, the last few details will break it up nicely once they're complete. The highlighting may look ...

  3. Cirith Ungol - Part 1

    Two weeks ago I started a project which seems to be the most ambitious of mine - The Tower of Cirith Ungol. I was inspired by Tolkiens book and the film and I've got a huge box with Mordor warriors by GW. So I want to make a diorama showing Shagrat fighting against Gorbag. If everything goes right the Tower will be about 30-40 sm high and inhabited with 10-15 Mordor Urukhajs and Orcs. By the time it looks rather poor, but I hope it's just the beginning.

  5. Busy Busy

     The fleshtearer assault troops are nearly all complete, here are some pics of the 12 completed and the last 8 still 'in progress' the main bodies are just missing a blacklining stage, I still find it surprising what a difference it make to the figure overall;  And finally, the first shots of the Deathroller I am doing around the Fleshtearers as another commison. Not a lot to see yet, but the front roller is pretty much complete.And around both of these and some OU study, I'm putting ...

  6. Happy Halloween

  7. The first of many..

    the first five Fleshtearer Assault Marines are complete.Again, most of the bases are unfinished, I tend to save the bases to do all in one go as it's the only time I use a drybrush :P I'm going to probably complete all teh assault marines over the next few days. But in between coats of paint, I now have a second commission project to work on, which does mean the space wolves have been set back, but I'm looking forward to painting up these pair of bloodbowl miniatures.It should be a nice chance ...

  8. Only ONE USA Games Day this year?

    Well, the rumors circulating for a couple of weeks were now given form on the Bells of lost Souls. No substance yet, but considering last year rumors about the LA Games day I am afraid we might end up with a single Games day. Original BoLS article is here

  10. Techpriest Conversion + Sky-Earth NMM Chrome

    I'm currently working on an amusing conversion of a techpriest, based off the latest Engineseer model. After doing a decent dry-brushed paint job and letting it sit there for weeks, I decided out of the blue yesterday to change everything completely. (I have the feeling this will happen a lot with this hobby.)I decided to paint the metallic parts chrome, using the sky-earth NMM technique. It came out quite well I think, for my first chrome attempts and second-ever model. My boyfriend was impressed, ...
