Prussian Empire Hochmeister Battle Robot

Over the last few years, I’ve painted a lot of Dystopian Wars models. They’re so unique and industrial looking. I really enjoy painting beat up battle robots. This one is fully magnetized at it’s arms, hands, weapons, and legs. It’s interchangeable for the land or sea base. The shoulder weapons rest nicely in their holders. …

Khanjira the World Breaker

This guy……   man what a beast. I received Khanjira the World Breaker a while ago. It’s the largest model I’ve done and was intimidating. I worked on him in between other small commissions at first, but these last three weeks have been all this guy. The only instruction I was given was to use …

Meeting of Winter

This was a fun challenge. I haven’t done dioramas before and was asked to use the minis sent to me in a scene with a waterfall. It led to a spring unicorn and foal meeting up with the winter pegasus. The client called it Meeting of Winter. The pegasus came from Reaper Miniatures. I’m not …

Fun with Photography

Disclaimer: This is NOT a photography tutorial. I’ll put some links of tutorials on the bottom of this post in case that’s what you’re looking for. This is merely a write up of my struggles behind the camera. Artists of all sorts have to wear many hats. Since I’ve started doing commission painting so long …

Tutorial: Ice and Snow Bases

I’ve been asked several times to demonstrate how I built up the Winter Skorne bases. I’ve answered the questions, but I thought I’d flood a post with pictures of the process. I layered thin cork to prop up the feet and create a rocky outcropping type base. Sand fills the gaps nicely. There’s no need …

Return of Winter Skorne

A while ago I had painted part of a Skorne army in purple and gold-bronze metals. I got the second installment of the Winter Skorne a handful of months ago and have been working on those along with other commissions. It was slow going, but they’re done. Like the first set, I sculpted furs onto …

Feiya, Iconic Witch and Fox Familiar

I’m finally catching up on my list of commissions…. now I have to catch up on website stuff. I was asked to paint Feiya and her familiar, Daji, adhering to the original artwork by Wayne Reynolds as closely as possible. This is a 28mm Pathfinder mini by Reaper Miniatures. I’m impressed with the intricate sculpt …

Treeman Ancient

Last fall, I was invited to participate in the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation’s auction for 2015. I was flattered to be asked to contribute to such an event and joyously poured over kits from my local hobby shop and picked out a Treeman from Games Workshop. The kit comes with three head and weapon choices. …

Winter Skorne

I’ve been quite busy over the last few months, but only some to do with painting. This last commission took some time but it’s finally finished. I was asked to add on some winter furs to Skorne Beast Handlers and create snow and ice bases for the five handlers and a Cyclops. This project held …

Grey Scale Elvira

A fun challenge came up a couple of months ago to paint a grey scale mini. I wasn’t going to join this challenge initially,  as I have a ton of projects going on already, until I ran across a small sculpt of Elvira. I have no idea what company. It’s a small, about 30mm, resin …

Chasseur A Cheval De La Garde from Metal Modeles

In between gaming miniatures, I indulge my love of historical models.  I really enjoy gaming and fantasy minis but there’s a different challenge to historical models such as color matching uniforms, trying out freehand on ornate trappings, and working on a larger scale.   This guy is a Chasseur A Cheval De La Garde. He’s …

Amiri, Iconic Barbarian

Right after the Russian Coalition was boxed up, I jumped on the next commission. This is Amiri from Reaper Miniatures from the Bones line. I painted one other Bones miniature but this is my first commission involving  this material. I followed the reference picture as close as possible, with some slight changes. I wasn’t sure …

Shaltari Army from Dropzone Commander

Again, I’ve been light on the updating and busy with painting. I finally found a few minutes to add some pictures and get this post up.   I painted up a Shaltari Army from Dropzone Commander. The pieces are made of a resiny plastic material. They are durable, not brittle, and have wonderfully sculpted details. …
