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 …

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 …

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 …

Making Removable Flight Stands with Sugru

I mentioned a couple of posts ago about making the flight stands for the Necron Scythes removable using Sugru, a somewhat flexible self curing putty/rubber. I’ve been using this stuff to fix just about everything around the house since I ordered it. I used about two mini packets of Sugru per base. Now that I …

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 …

Dragon, Kyra, Seoni…. done!

After working on these guys for quite some time, I finally was able to sit down and finish them up this week. It’s such a relief to be able to get home at a reasonable hour, paint uninterrupted, and actually get some commissions finished.  I love the fact that my customers are patient and forgiving …

Painting Kyra’s Face

While waiting for the watery layers of Red Dragon to dry, I worked on Kyra’s face. Below is the artwork that I was sent to use as a reference.   I used a base coat of Olive Skin Highlight and Dusky Skin. I mixed it about 50/50.  A mix of Walnut Brown and a small …
