For Sale! Grey Knight Librarian

Another Knight for the wilds of E-bay.  I was experimenting with true metallics on this one. Basically laying down the metals and glazing non metallic colors on top. He's a little flamboyant as I imagine the Grey Knights to be.

Finished! Dark Vengeance Tactical Squad

A recent tabletop level commission. Compared to the rest of the kits in the box the sculpting on these guys is a little boring. But everybody wants Space Marines so... At any rate here they are for your viewing pleasure.

Finished! Lilith Herald of Everblight

This was one of my entries in the Privateer Press Contest at Gen Con. I was happy to take home a Gold for her. I had fun with the biomechanical freehanding and I'm going to work on that technique more in the future. I'm not sure if a rippling cape is the best area to apply the freehanding to. I think I'm going to seek out a flatter surface for future experiments.

Finished! Grey Knights Army

Fresh for the table I present the finished Gray Knights. I was in a rush to get them photographed and the shots suffered a little as a result but there's still something worth showing in there. Enjoy :)

Finished! Wreck-Age Reclaimers

The Wreck-Age catalog keeps expanding :) Two Reclaimers and a trio of Pack Dogs. Can't wait to see what they have coming up next. The Reclaimers role in the future is venturing out and searching for whatever abandon technology they come across. Even if they don't know how it works.

Well, it's back to work on the Grey Knights for me. I've also made some headway on a little personal project I should have up here in the near future.

Finished! Earthborn Dire Troll

This guy was part of my diorama entry from the P3 contest at Gen Con this year. It was quite an effort getting him together, if you're a regular follower here you might remember that process. I wanted to get some  better shots of just him and finally got around to it last night. Enjoy :)

Friday Scatterbrains

Another week rounding out and more projects pounded in :) So far it's been a productive week. Here's what I've been up to.

The main focus for the week has been the recent Grey Knights commission. Here's where I was at before starting on them yesterday. Times this picture by 25 ;) They're almost done and then I'll be taking some time to add freehand designs and other embellishments on the characters.

But today I'm taking a momentary break from them to work on some more miniatures for Wreck-Age. This time I'm painting up some Reclaimers and Pack Dogs

Blurry, but primed and ready.

Upon staring at my shelf like I often do I realized I haven't added to my own collection since mid August before Gen Con...I decided it would be nice to add to my Hordes collection, especially since it's been gaining some momentum around here. I also have an excessive build up of Rackham miniatures. 

the solution:

Uren's Son should make a good proxy for a whole range of medium based models in the future. If you don't know I play trolls and he's about the same size as all the light beasts in the book. 

So there you have it. One Commission for  an entire army, one of show quality for a manufacturer, and one personal project to sink my teeth into..The mind wanders..

Fire for Effect Games, Year One

Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of scoping out a new store some of my friends have opened up. Although incomplete at the time they opened the doors up to a few friends and hobbyists to take in the scenery. I brought along a Grey Knights army I've been commissioned recently. The dreaded Draigo, paladin detachment.

Here's a shot of the Paladins I took before heading down. Much progress was happily made at the new location :) I wish the best for my friends and their new endeavor.

Also, thanks for the wine and cheese.
