I know it's not throwback thursday yet but here are some models from the school of old. Plus some, wreck-age figures in the mix. My client has assembled a post apocalyptic warband of miniatures from the past and present. I was also allowed to paint them however I please, most excellent :) Fourteen figures, 10 hours. Tabletop quality rats for your viewing pleasures.

Very cool minis, I pre-ordered them in hopes that they would arrive before Gencon and I'd still have time to paint them for the P3 contest. As luck would have it they arrived two weeks before the event. They took home a silver coin in their category :) I hope to see more croak miniatures in the future, with the multitude of poisonous frog color schemes out there, who doesn't like amphibians?
Rock the vote on Coolmini!

Spanglin and manglin, here come the red metal crisis suits :)
All done and on to the next one, loads and loads of commissions coming in. I'm still trying to post a Gencon recap but today's mission will be painting some Ratskin Renegades. Gotta keep that brush swinging!

This was another of my entries for the P3 competition at Gencon this year. I've been drawing longer than I've been painting minis and it's about time and it was fun to combine the two in a more major way. Looking very much like something that escaped from H.G Wells imagination, I present to you...The Kraken!
Get out there and rock the vote on Coolminiornot. I'm not cutting this picture up either so you'll have to view her in all her plus sized glory there ha.

Almost complete and flowing like the razor on the edge of a knife.
Just some more highlighting on the non metallic areas to go. Some basing detail too, lest we forget. The nine drones will get their turn as well but I wanted to get the suits done first as they are painted to a higher level.

Just kicked these off with some airbrushing yesterday. More Tau for my buddy J.R. This time painted in Red Metaaal (insert guitar solo) which is a welcome challenge. I took a few shots along the way before hanging up my brush and going out for some real shots.
I'm enjoying the hot red lead on these badboys. Today's focus will be on picking out the details as all the work left is by hand brush. Luckily I've discovered a new podcast to feed my inner thoughts and span some time with. Check out The Last Podcast on the Left for some paint listening. Who knows? You might even be listening to the episode I'm on and it will be like we're painting together.
I still have to post a Gencon wrap up so keep an eye out for that in the near future. It went well, but more on that next time :)

Two days left to finish every delicious lick of paint :) I'm taking a break at the moment before I work on, into the night. Another 10 hours and this project should be complete. It also includes a first for me, chopping a miniature in half so it appears to be submerged. Pro tip: cut the model in half to save on painting time.
Think you know cool people? While I was assembling these my good friend Alex stopped by with some flowers :) Thanks for sprucing up the joint and reminding me the outside still exists even if I ignore it for days on end while painting.
