Finished! Malifaux 30 Deep

Finally finished :) The assembly of this project was a major bog. Wyrd miniatures needs some serious help designing the seams and number of cuts on their sculpts. I like where they're going but we're not there yet. Instructions would be a good start.

Drumroll please, I know it's only just February but my "shittiest sculpt I've seen" award for this year has to be passed to the hoarcat pride. You can can see them pictured center in the picture below. Three bearded cats in doggystyle position. 

Overall it was a fun project. Wyrd miniatures is going in a good direction but I was a little disappointed in some of thesese models. They do humans really well, molemen..not so much.

Malifaux 30 Deep part 2

With the airbrushing complete on each group I'm now breaking them down by schemes and applying the finishing touches. The bases may appear a little sparse for now but that's due to a lack of snow which will be the icing on the cake.

The purple drank is a home made smoothie, what you think I quit pumping and went soft?

Malifaux 30 Deep

Maybe more like 20 something but that's a big crew. A gangsta needs options though. Or maybe no options is why they turn to a life of rap? Either way, I choose the colors. Here are the growing pains of my current job :)

These minis will be at Adepticon as well so keep an eye out for them if you're there. Stay tuned, more to come!

Finished! Custom Epic Xerxis on Mammoth..Skorne!

All painted up and ready for the grand dance at Adepticon. The dude, Mike, will have this guy in the Privateer press beatdown room.

You're not seeing double! That's a magnetic waist option! 

After powering through the Ravenwing project and now this I'm going to take a day off. On those days off I will be painting for the Crystal Brush competition. The dose of motivation is much needed but I must push on for the next 50 days.

Custom Epic Xerxis Step 2

Those awkward in-between steps to aduthood. Or tyrantdom. 

From washes to highlights.

And finally assembly :)

Almost complete. Now that all the basecoating is complete, the satisfying sweeps of the finishing moves can be applied.

As the project went on, more and more pieces made their way out of the bad boy box. The unsung hero of this project that's been keeping its pieces in, well, one place..a box, that I took a picture of. 

Well, gotta have this project done by Saturday so stay tuned!

Finished! Ravenwing Strikeforce

They're leaving the nest today. All grown and painted. Ready to crush anyone and anything that doesn't fit the xenophobic visions of their psychic zombie king. Nothing too crazy here, just standard ravenwing with a touch of the blues and some illuminated headlights as requested by my client.

Custom Epic Xerxis Step 1

This is a piece for a local guy Mike. Xerxis, Fury of Halaak mounted on his Cerops mount but with the magnetic option to hop on a Mammoth..Mwahaha. So, first I have a little sculpting and reopsitioning to do. Here's the project in full swing. You can see Xerxis in the top right corner. The mammoth has a few brown pieces that were cast up by Mike to mount Xerxis and match the Mammoth horn with the Cerops horn. 

The neck and right arm are repositioned slightly so the Mammoth can be smashing some enemy lines to pieces. I'll get that together tomorrow when the basing and detailing of the saddle can begin.
