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. …
