To infinity!

Have you played infinity yet? If not, get on it apache! I've fumbled my way through 3 games so far and every one has been enjoyable. Not to mention the beautiful figures and low model count equation that draws out the pleasurable side of painting.  Here's the first group of models I've chosen to paint up. Nomads 4 lyfe.

I'm telling myself to paint this group before I think about buying anything else. Money is tight following my move to Utah. Utah has been very underwhelming to say the least. But you have to remind yourself, things get worse before they get better. By that equation and with no small amount of effort, I'm about to have my socks blown off.

More to come on the Nomads front.  I'll leave you with an in progress shot from a few days ago :)

Getting back in the groove

I'm finally getting into the new groove of things out here. I've made my place in the studio and really enjoying my time there. Yesterday was spent airbrushing and assembling some personal projects I want to finish before this months valhalla on the 21 st. As well as getting some games in I'll be teaching some classes there. One of my main projects is another unit for my trollbloods Army, the sons of Bragg. These sculpts are phenominal. 

I usually paint my trolls with just brushwork but this time I wanted to see how I could do with the airbrush. 

Step one, grey a grey base coat.

In the second step I added a little white to the mix and added the highlights.

The third step was to add a rusted tint to the grey foundation.

The same mix was applied with more of the rusted tone.

Then a little chocolate brown was applied.

Then it was time to add the washes. First, the brown.

For the final step a wash of good ol badab black was layed down.

Can't wait to add the brushwork. For my parting shot here's a little work in progress by Mason from the assembly department.

Testing 1 2

Greetings, as the title suggests I'm testing a little something out. I'm always experimenting but this time I'm attempting to write a post from my phone. Just for grins, it might come in handy down the line. 

So I've snapped a few pictures of current projects on my table as my subjects.


Its unfortunate I can't edit them in Photoshop but I think it will work to keep up on works in progress. Eventually I'll have a decent camera and light box.

Blood Angels Parking Lot

First off, apologies for the radio silence. Moving to Utah had me a little distracted. Now that I'm getting my groove back I wanted to show one of the projects I finished just before I left. It was for a very supportive friend I'm happy to know. (kiss kiss) 

A whole slew of support for the Blood Angels.

Time intensive but fun none the less, at least the part where I could call it done. I need to buy a decent camera out here since the one I used was borrowed from brother John. I'll have more in store soon though so stay tuned!
