Custom Miniature Painting

The Sorcerer on an Arcane Circle

This mini is The Sorcerer from Nocturna. This is the second one that I’ve painted. It truly is a wonderful mini to paint. The current rendition has some modifications and a custom base that designed and printed. The customer and I went over specific details for his beloved character. The base is designed to be …

Academic Orc Bust from Hera Models

I was gifted this bust with a couple of others and upon returning from NOVA (that really should be another post), I was all inspired to paint something that’s not a commission… something akin to an open canvas. While I had a short break in commissions,  I grabbed this bust and started painting it. I …

Verlinden’s General Krasinsky

So…. if you follow my social meda, you’ve seen this guy… for a long time. I’ve probably been working on him intermittently for at least 8 months.  This one is a 120mm resin Superscale model from Verlinden. I relied heavily on the box art along with some online references for the colors. Historical models are …

Labyrinth Board Game Minis

My good friend got the Labyrinth board game as a gift and asked if I wanted to paint the minis for her.  Labyrinth was one of my favorite childhood movies, so I was super excited to paint them.  The sculpts themselves aren’t the best, especially compared to the collectible minis that I’m used to painting, …

Kritterkins : Aka-San Fox

Last year, perhaps the year before, I jumped in on a Kritterkins kickstarter from Bombshell Miniatures.   I painted the frog for a friend a little over a year ago and it was so much fun.  I needed a mini to paint for a secret mini exchange and decided to go with the fox.  She was …

Mortarion

I’ve been steadily busy with commissions, taking on bigger army type projects.   I wanted to stay away from such large tasks to concentrate on historical models and higher quality paint jobs, but the lack of hours at the day job pushed me to take whatever comes my way. I’ve been making the best of it …

The Sorcerer from Nocturna

I kept seeing this miniature float about online and caved on buying it. I love the how the delicate sculpt conveys so much movement and power.  Nocturna Models has so many great characters available. A friend of mine is a fan of Raistlin and the Dragonlance stories in general. I thought this would be a …

Loki, Circle Warpwolf – Heavy Warbeast

NOVA is quickly approaching again and Loki was this year’s donation.   I loved the sculpt immediately and had such fun painting it.  My photography still needs work though. I have a habit of taking and processing pictures when my eyes are tired. The pictures look great until I see them the next day, but …

Innsmouth Fisherman

This bust was sculpted by Romain Van den Bogaert.  I picked it up for a group competition on Facebook. I’m not much for competitions but I saw this as an opportunity to paint something in whatever style I felt. I read The Shadow Over Innsmouth to get a feel for the character. If you haven’t …

Eye Tyrant

Gale Force Nine came out with gorgeous sets of Dungeon and Dragons miniatures, one of them being the Eye Tyrant, also known as a Beholder. It’s a large resin model with beautifully carved details. There were some gaps to fill but they were easily blended into the existing detail. I used oil over acrylics to get …

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 …
