Infinity Aleph Step 1!

This is project from a friend I met out in Utah when I worked for (chills) blue table painting. I'm really excited to paint an infinity army, this is the first time I've been commissioned to paint one and hopefully it will bring more of it's kind my way. I really miss this game, I played a dozen games out in Utah but no one in my current area plays it. I might be speaking too soon but I've been making some moves to change that, we'll see ;) For now, the task at hand is Aleph. Josh made the bases and assembled the minis himself before sending them my way, looks good buddy! The idea here is that the force contains no actual humans and the basing is done in a laboratory theme. All cyborgs and robots carrying out the will of the self aware internet of the future. Did I mention this game is awesome?


For the armor plates I was sent a reference picture from the movie I-robot. Basicly white armor plates with black internal, worky bits, that have an internal turquoise glow. So step one was to get that white nice and smooth.



I don't know how most painters measure their time but sometimes I like to use units of measurement referred to as "waylons". Other times I use a clock. So this was my soundtrack :)


Here they are in the bare state. Just wanted to show the basing Josh did before I painted over it.

Finished! Blood Angels Transports

All done and ready to take the enemies of the Imperium back to bitch school.



The back of the rhino above is supposed to read "Dismember", what I actually wrote was "Dimember"..definitely not my fault. If I've learned anything from my fellow man it's that nothing is ever your own fault..whoops! I'll be fixing that up in a jiffy, just failed to catch the spelling error until the tank was already in my light box.

WIP Blood Angels Transports

Not skipping a beat after Adepticon I got right back to the commissions, after skipping a beat for a day. So here we have two Rhino's with a Razorback and some storm bolter options coming along :) 




The second half of this commission is the Gamesday Captain from 2012 who will be painted up to a higher quality. Around 6-7 hours after assembly and airbrushing.


Well, that was my goal for today's break from miniature painting, blog about it. 

Better get back to it!

I survived Adepticon 2015

Ooo lawdy, what a weekend. So many highlights it's hard to out it all together. Got to see all my favorite homies and well as meet some new ones. So before I start taking decent pictures again, I have one more final bunch of camera phone drops for you.


Three gold and two silver brushes :) I'll have pictures of my entries coming along soon.


It might not look like much but when I took this picture my blood was pumping. Thus is that suspensuf moment that always precedes the ceremony, the settling of the slide projector ha.

  I'd also like to point out Tom Ales in front of me, yet again wearing a death metal T-shirt featuring the spellbinding art of Dan Seagrave. And yes, Dismember rules the wasteland, give them a listen.



Here is an inspiring person I met being interviewed after her 3 runner up award. I walked out for a drink and the doors were closed so the staff could conduct the rest of the interviews. Kudos to you Jessica Rich and thanks for the lesson :)


Here is the model I painted from her class, how to paint smoking hot females. I didnt sign up ahead of time so there were no more nude models to paint. I made due and created this paladin in the finest flesh robes. I also found time to fit a naked lady on the cape, flipping the bird, naturally.



Behold! The swag! Comingled with my purchases from the weekend :)


Finally, upon driving home with Tom, he gifted me an amazing display cabinet. Tom is one of the most noble and solid people I have ever met. Big thanks my man, this is a very motivating sight in my living room.


So what's next? Paint paint paint!! I have commissions stacked on commissions at the moment. 

Have a great day and do what you love, if you're not a total shitbag.
