WIP Wings of Death

Preppin and steppin through a squad of Deathwing Knights and their accompanying landraider :) A fun mix of tabletop with a request for some freehand goodness on the tank. Tanks usually bore me but the added spice of some mural work kept it interesting.


More to come, stay tuned!

Finished! Gigarobo Gang

These bots have been done for a while but I wanted to wait until after their reveal at Gencon to post them up. I haven't played this game but it involves a card mechanic which is always interesting in a tabletop, grid based game. They're off to a good start though and I wish all the best for Alex and the rest of the gang involved with Gigarobo

Stay tuned my friends!

Finished! Lord of Contagion

Man I love the new Death Guard models. Every time I paint some Nurgle goodness I'm entertaining the idea of an army. This time around was no exception, coupled with the onset of a new edition I was thinking about it double. But who has the time? I do, but it comes at a price so for now I'll have to just leave my Nurgle army at that, an idea. Maybe some day, for now though I've had my fun with the Lord of Contagion. I'll place him up on Ebay and see what happens. If he sells, good, if not, then I get to hang out with my budding army a little longer.

I haven't posted on coolminiornot in a while due to them changing the parameters related to the image quality but after some growing pains, I've been able to adjust. So take a gander at my Gallery there and rock the vote. Or if you'd like to own him yourself, bidding starts Here

WIP: Lord of Contagion

Amidst the commissions sometimes I have to do a out of sync painting to keep the mojo flowing. Inspired by the Nurgle models painted during the class I held in Minneapolis and still having some figures left, I started slapping some paint around. This won't be a competition piece and isn't for anyone in particular, just for the fun of it :) and then most likely Ebay.

No rules!

Stay tuned!

Minneapolis Masterclass

As the title suggests, I was in Minneapolis last weekend teaching a two day course on the fine art of miniature painting. This was the first of it's kind for me, I've taught shorter seminars at conventions and one on one coaching but never an intensive weekend course with a group.

My goal was to train everyone in the variety of techniques I've learned over the years, and wrap them all together.

As a warm up, I had people work on a two dimensional surface to get their blending muscles warmed up.

Then we moved on to some value sketching and over toning.

Still moving through the first day we began wetblending on some plague marines. The next day would be spent refining that technique as well some insight into color theory and quick OSL demonstration.

Some minis I brought along for explanation ;)

This was a great experience and I feel I've planned the seed for many good things to come. A huge thanks to all my students who attended, it wouldn't have been possible without you. And also a shout out to Scott, the Miniac, who arranged this who excursion. I'm.looking forward to more mini centric activities with you buddy!

WIP Giga-Robo

I've been asked to paint up the starter box contents for Giga-Robo. Check out the site and see! 

I'll be painting up some 3-D renders for their display at Gencon this year, which unfortunately I won't be attending. But I'll be there in spirit as a few of my paintjobs will be floating around on display and the gaming table.

Stay tuned!

Finished! Deathwatch Overkill

A very cool assortment of models all in one box. In the end I spent about 50 hours on this project, and although it wasn't a total bore, I'm glad to see it completed. Now I can focus on more single miniature projects, taking the same amount of time spent on fifty models and putting it into one :) Fortune telling aside here is the completed set. Enjoy!
