Custom Miniature Painting

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.

The pieces are made of a resiny plastic material. They are durable, not brittle, and have wonderfully sculpted details. …

Son of Thunder from Confrontation

I finished up the Son of Thunder mini tonight. I was going to update in small pieces but got in a nice painting flow and cruised right through the rest of the mini. As I mentioned before, this is for a charity auction called Heros for Heros. I’m planning on setting up the auction next …

Bert and Ernie

Last week my brushes were on fire and I had laser concentration. This week not so much. I know by now that if I’m not working on commissions and I push to paint when I’m not quite feeling it, then terrible things may happen. I did make some progress on the Son of Thunder but …

Ameiko Kaijitsu

I finished this mini a while back but finally put the pictures together. This is Ameiko Kaijitsu from Reaper Miniatures. Also, I’d like to introduce my crew. They don’t paint much but they enjoy getting in the way. Yeah, I do spend most of the week with my cats while I paint but I assure …
