Miniatures Painting Weekly

Hey all! Just wanted to give a quick shout out to Miniatures Painting Weekly, an online magazine about all things hobby related. They were kind enough to feature some of my work in their first issue. Give them a click and see what it's all about!

Sepulchural Guard Step One!

I'm back on the Youtubes! This time around we recorded a small series on the Sepulchural guard. Part one being all about the base. Link

Enjoy!

Finished! Typhus, Herald of the Plague God

This project was started during a private tutoring session. Super fun to work on after throwing away the derpy smoke that came with the sculpt (you know what I'm talking about). I'd also like to remind my regular readers I've moved my operations over to Facebook and mainly this blog will function as a gallery of completed work for the time being.

I also have an Instagram account, it's a mix of weirdness and miniatures if you're so inclined. Search for Sam Lenz to find me.

Enjoy!

Finished! Eldar Wraithknight Death Jester Style

A really fun commission to work on. With the Death Jester theme in mind I wanted to accent more the wraithbone part of Eldar culture opposed to the checkers and other mechanical lines. 

This post also marks a transition for me. I've started a Facebook page for my art. This blog will still remain but will function as a gallery of completed works for the most part. Facebook seems like an easier way to interact with people who visit this page. I don't get notifications from blogspot when someone comments for example. So check it out and give it a like if you swing that way.

Enjoy!

Finished! Deathwing Librarian

The final piece of the pie in a recent Deathwing commission. A terminator librarian painted to a higher tabletop level. Fun!

Finished! Dark Angels Land Raider

All glammed up and ready to roll. This was a really fun one. My client mainly wanted the emphasis on some cool freehand designs, I can do that! 






Stay tuned!

Finished! Primaris Captain

A while back I posted about a weekend paint jam in which some friends and I got down on some primaris marines. Here's my final result all ready for fake battle. It was a lot of fun to work on, some folks don't dig space marines but to me they've always been cool space knight looking figures and the primaris are that even more. 







More space marines to come! Stay tuned!

He's also for hire if you're feeling blue.

Finished! Dark Angels Deathwing Knights

A recent commission with a little bit of everything. First up, a variety of deathwing terminators.








I'll roll out the rest over the next couple days. Goatta keep the viewers coming back so I can not make ad revenue!

Primaris Paintjam Primer!

Over the last weekend some painting buddies and I gathered our forces and got down to business on some of the new space marine breed. The figure of choice was the Captain in Gravis Armor. I made an extra base for my buddy Scott who came all the way from Minneapolis. He also runs a youtube channel devoted to the fine art of miniature painting, Miniac as well as a twitch channel under the same name.



As per usual with our jams, my attention shifts from painting to snapping pictures but eventually the painting earns my full attention. But I did capture some of the magic from the weekend.




Next up I'll have the finished results of my efforts. Which took and extra day to finish off. I was hoping to get it all done over the weekend but an ambitious paintjob can add a lot of time to a project. You'll see what I mean next time.

Stay tuned!

Finished! Foetid Bloat Drone

Rolling out another model form the recent Dark Imperium starter. This time the Foetid Bloat Drone, which I really enjoyed due to the negative space created by it's floating nature. Very cool! I have fantasies of having a 40K army again but until that time comes I'll have to be satisfied with a few pieces here and there. In a year, once I've seen where the new edition of 40K has gone, then maybe I'll jump back on board the bandwagon.







He's also for sale on Ebay if you want to spread the contagion in your home town.

Stay tuned!

What have I been listening to: Diocletian

WIP Wings of Death

Preppin and steppin through a squad of Deathwing Knights and their accompanying landraider :) A fun mix of tabletop with a request for some freehand goodness on the tank. Tanks usually bore me but the added spice of some mural work kept it interesting.

Enjoy!






More to come, stay tuned!

Finished! Gigarobo Gang

These bots have been done for a while but I wanted to wait until after their reveal at Gencon to post them up. I haven't played this game but it involves a card mechanic which is always interesting in a tabletop, grid based game. They're off to a good start though and I wish all the best for Alex and the rest of the gang involved with Gigarobo













Stay tuned my friends!
