Welcome to Wizardry in Progress, my weekly recap of projects and progress over the past week.

This week, a Kastelan Robot has taken up most of the hobby time. Lets take a look!

Miniature Monday - Skitarii Vanguard

These fellas have been done for a while, but forgot to take pictures or do a write up on them. I had written about them previously in some of the WIP posts for the entire Adeptus Mechanicus army as a whole. But, they deserve their own post.

Wizardry in Progress 1/10/18

It's a new year and its time to make WIP Wednesday into its own weekly post! Rather than randomly posting WIP pictures when I feel like I have something to talk about, I'm going to pool it all together into a summary of what's happened each week.

With that said, welcome to the first post in a new series called Wizardry in Progress, here I'll share what I've worked on over the last week, with pictures and commentary of each, in the hopes to keep myself motivated and to keep posting on a regular basis.

It could be a single big project or it could be multiple large projects. But each week I'll be gathering up images and talking about progress! Eventually, I'll have a logo for this too. But for now, let's get to it!

Miniature Monday - Onager Dunecrawler with Icarus Array

The Onager Dunecrawler is all complete, after three weeks of painting! I'm really pleased with how well it turned out, especially after it was dusted with the Secret Weapon "rust" pigments.

I have to say, I believe this model is one of the best paint jobs I've ever done and it looks great on the table along with the rest of my painted Adeptus Mechanicus army. I really like how the green came out on the armor plates and it really pops against the red of the Mars styled bases.

Conversions - Custom Kastelan Robot Heads

Its no secret that the Kastelan Robots are one of my favorite models from the Adeptus Mechanicus faction of Warhammer 40,000. I just really love the idea of big stompy robots, and I am a fan of the retro-future look of them.

Ever since I first saw them, I wanted to run an army of them. Each one painted up as an individual, and not just a tide of the same color scheme. The ideas in my head were endless.

2017 Year in Review!

The Brush Wizard's 2017 Year in Review

It's been a pretty solid year for me this year, though I didn't post as much as previous years. It was a busy one, filled with firsts and awesomeness! Let's take a look!

Super Secret Christmas Present 2017 - Santa Dwarf Ornament

This year for for my family's Christmas party the elders decided that exchanging names and giving gifts was no longer the way we were doing things. Instead, we would be giving a $10 ornament and playing an exchange game.

While I'm not a fan of this kind of thing, because it takes away the idea of picking something specifically for someone. At the same time if means that I don't have to struggle to figure out something and then worry if the person I was matched up with would like it or not.

That said, as soon as I heard it was a ornament exchange, I knew what I had to do.

Project Status - Adeptus Mechanicus Army

Work on continues on the Admech army. I am really happy with the progress so far and its all starting to come together nicely.

In the time since I started this project, the rules for the Friendly at Adepticon have been announced and one of the detachments allowed is Spearhead. In this detachment you field, at a minimum, an HQ unit and 3 units of Heavy Support.

This changed my plan from fielding as many Vanguard as possible, to doing my dream army of a smaller force supporting a bunch of Kastelan Robots.

Vlad the Impaler

One historical figure that I've always been interested in is Vlad the Impaler. I find the mixture of myth and truth to be really interesting and find myself reading about him from time to time.

So when I saw Lyn of Metalhead Minis painting up a bunch of mini busts, which included one of Vlad, I instantly asked where to find him and bought one for myself.

GUTS - Chibi Sherman Tank

While working the Ninja Division booth at GenCon, I painted some German soldiers for their new line of WWII era minis, GUTS. I instantly fell in love with them and left with a Sherman tank and a squad of US HQ.

I had big plans for them, but eventually they all went to the back burner. That is until I needed to find something to paint on stream, after I finished Vlad the Impaler. On a whim, I primed the Sherman and went to work on it.
