Tech-Priest Dominus Conversion

Shortly after I came back from GenCon, I was able to finish the custom Tech-Priest Dominus I had mentioned previously and been plastering all over social media.

I had actually taken him to GenCon with me, in case I had a chance for some free time to sit and just paint. The only time I was able to was on the first night, when I wasn't sure what to do with myself and didn't think I had anyone to hang out with.

When I returned from GenCon, I left him sit for a bit longer and about a week or two later I finally put him back on the table and got to work finishing him up.

Grimwood, Elven Archer

It's no secret RuneQuest is my favorite RPG system, but it is brutal as Hell.

Thanks to an unlucky roll while defending an elven forest from chaos, my Storm Bull initiate Talia, lost a leg and was no longer able to travel with the party. 

After cleansing their forest and making up for mistakes we made against them. The elves joined our cause and agreed cast healing magic on Talia to allow the limb to regrow. The downside, it would take 9 months of in-game time before she could rejoin the party. 

With that in mind, and since the elves have agreed to join our alliance, we were able to roll up elves as replacement characters for the two characters who were incapacitated. 

A new character means a new miniature and after a long search trying to find a suitable elf mini, I finally ended up with a human ranger from Dark Sword Miniatures.

Tutorial: How to Paint Copper

How to Paint Copper
High Contrast Metallics

Hey all, earlier I showed you how to paint metal, using silver metallic paint and what I call "High Contrast Metallics". Now, I'm going to show you how to take what we talked about there and use it for copper/brass instead. If you haven't read that tutorial, you may want to check it out before continuing.

Moar Desk Upgrades!

The hobby desk is reaching levels of awesomeness, once only imagined...

In the time since I last posted about the desk update, I've now added a few more things to it. Namely a new paint rack and fresh lighting.

Wander: The Journey So Far...

Lately, I've been addicted to working on the Wander figures from Red Panda Miniatures and Panda Cult Games. In the weeks following GenCon I've knocked out three of the seven miniatures in the current line up. You've seen Tank and Jon already, but now I've finished Roland and have taken better pictures of all of them.

Let's take a look!

White Dwarf Sept 2017

This month I have checked off a long time goal.

I have a model published in White Dwarf magazine, Games Workshop's official monthly magazine for Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000!

The model in question is none other than the Deathwing Terminator Captain that I painted up earlier this year for Adepticon and the Crystal Brush in March.

But, apparently this isn't any ol' issue of White Dwarf, its a special 30th anniversary edition, celebrating 30 years of Warhammer 40,000! That's awesome!
