Wander: Tank all Finished!

While at GenCon I worked the Ninja Division booth with Elizabeth Beckley-Bradford, who's husband Jonathan is one half of Panda Cult Games. Panda Cult Games are an ultra small indie game studio and they are currently in development of their first game, Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay.

WIP - Wander: Jon the Bard

Since Monday evening I've been working on Jon, a chameleon bard, from Panda Cult Games line of Wander miniatures.

The official artwork has him with green skin, and originally I was going to follow suit. But then I realized that chameleons can be vibrantly colored and decided to do some image searches for references.

That's when I stumbled on this image.

GenCon 50!

I have returned from the land of GenCon. It was a great time! The inaugural Golden Kobold chibi painting competition was a huge success and I got to meet a lot of folks. Such a great time was had.

The Brush Wizard at GenCon 50!

In case you didn't know, I will be attending GenCon this year! It's super exciting and I am both honored and proud to be joining Ninja Division at their booth for the inaugural Golden Kobold chibi painting competition as a judge.

You can find me in the exhibit hall at booth #2827, accepting entries for the contest as well as painting adorable chibi figures.

This is definitely a dream come true. Not only because I get to go to GenCon for the first time and it's the 50th anniversary, but also because I'll be working directly with the folks responsible for creating and feeding my chibi addiction.

I'll be taking as many pictures as possible and when I get home I'll be updating again with pictures and a write up on my experience.

This is likely one of the greatest opportunities I've ever had given to me and I'm excited to take part in it and do my part.

New Project! Chibi Skitarii Ranger!

Taking a bit of a break on my Skitarii army and working on a new chibi. But this time, I'm going full on custom and attempting to make a Skitarii Ranger out of a Ninja All-Stars mini!

WIP - Starting on the Rangers

Th Skitarii train keeps on chugging and I am now working on the five man squad of Rangers.

Originally, I had planned on customizing the entire squad with T'au Pathfinder legs. But after totally ruining a few of my original Ranger models, I decided against it. Leaving me with a single crouched sniper in the group.

WIP - Custom Tech Priest Dominus

A few months ago, I decided it would be fun to make a custom Tech Priest Dominus to lead my
Skitarii. I originally had an idea of making him on a hover saucer, but that idea quickly collapsed when I realized the bits I had on hand were too small to believably carry all the gear the Dominus has.

Slightly put off by that revelation, I set it aside and went about other projects.

WIP - More Progress on the Skitarii

More progress has been made on the Skitarii army for Warhammer 40k. As of last night, I now have the Sydorian Dragoon finished, the first batch of Vanguard weathered, a Tech Priest Enginseer nearly finished, a second Enginseer being custom built and I salvaged my 5 man squad of Rangers.

Whew! That's a lot!
