Lonely Havocs Battle Report: Nurgle vs Admech!

While I was Midwest Miniature Madness over the previous weekend, Dan of The Lonely Havocs and myself squared off on the field of battle! He used his Nurgle Marines and a Renegade Knight and I with my Adeptus Mechanicus.

It was a good time, and we went late into the night playing and recording the commentary. Check out the video below!

Let's Paint: Primaris Intercessor: 5 Color Challenge

This week on Let's Paint its a special 5 color painting challenge, featuring an Intercessors Primaris Space Marine!

This model was donated to us by alphadevilinak on Twitter so that Dan of the Lonely Havocs and myself could square off in a paint off. For this model I used Mephison Red, Yriel Yellow, Black, White and Leadbelcher.

I'm really pleased with the results. Check out the video after the break to see it all come together.

Let's Paint: Deadpool (Part Three)

Last week I was traveling on Thursday, and didn't get a chance to do a post for Part 3 of Deadpool! Shame on me.

It has been up for a week now though and is here for your viewing pleasure!

Wizardry in Progress 6/27/18

I have returned from Midwest Miniature Madness triumphant!

It was a small convention, but I met a few people and was able to talk a lot of hobby with folks. While there I painted up the C'thulhu bust from Black Heart Models, Kommander Sorscha bust from Privateer Press and was challenged to a 5 color only Intercessor paint challenge.

I recorded all of it and it will all be released on YouTube soon!

The Brush Wizard, Amazon Ads and Ko-fi

If you've been coming to the site for awhile, you may have noticed a bit of housekeeping going on and some new additions to the side bar.

I am an Amazon Affiliate and also have started up on Ko-fi.

Here's the run down. It's a bit of a wall o' text, so bear with me.

Miniature Monday: Tech-Priest Dominus

The Skitarii have a new leader! A new Tech-Priest Dominus joins the battle!

Ever since I finished my original Dominus, I wanted to do another conversion using a Techmarine as the basis of it. For this one I blended a Tech-Priest Dominus, Tech-Priest Engineseer and the Techmarine.

I had originally wanted to do a model styled after Gizmoduck, but didn't care for the options I had for tires. In the end, I went with a more cyborg human and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Midwest Miniature Madness!

Hey everyone, I have some exciting news!

I'm taking Let's Paint on the road and will be in St. Louis for Midwest Miniature Madness in the Gateway Center on June 22-24th! I'll have a table set up with all of my painting gear, lamps and recording stuffs. While there I'll be painting miniatures all weekend long for Let's Paint videos.

Wizardry in Progress 6/13/18

Better late than never. I forgot all about last week's write up! So, this last week is double the fun.

Last week, the main thing that happened was a rework of my desk, I cleaned it up and moved my lamps around. I also got a new frame for the picture of us with Cary Elwes and properly hung it up on the wall.

Other than that, I started on a Librarian by painting his face, then I began painting new additions to Admech army with a new Tech-Priest Dominus. I made a new mold for Kastelan Robot heads and cast a clear head for my buddy Greg.

This week, I finished the Dominus and started making bases for the new Skitarii Vanguard plasma dudes and bases for the Kataphron Destroyers.

Let's take a look!

Miniature Monday: Death Company Chaplain

A buddy of mine has asked me to paint up his Blood Angels, and I've been slowly making progress on it. This Chaplain helped serve as the test model for the Death Company models of his army.

While most of the model is black and red, I decided to try a few new things out on him and am really pleased with the results.

Let's take a look!

Let's Paint - Deadpool: Part 1

This week for Let's Paint I have a new series of videos starting. In this series, I'll be painting Deadpool from Knight Models and their now out of print Marvel Miniatures Game.

This piece was given to my friend Jeremy for his 40th birthday, as he's the biggest Deadpool fan I know. I'd had this model in my collection for awhile looking for the best opportunity to paint it up and give it to him. Luckily Deadpool 2 and his birthday kind of coincided and I was able to give it to him after we went to the movie.

This is a three part series. In this first video, I lay down the base coats and get a start on Deadpool's suit.

Miniature Monday: Mary Fit-It and G.R.I.T.T.

At Adepticon this year, my friends at Panda Cult Games were selling a bust to help promote their upcoming board game Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay, which had a very successful Kickstarter run and has proven so popular at the demo tables that I personally haven't been able to get a game of it demoed.
