Yes, I have two commission going at once now. Straight out running since finishing the Firestorm ships.

I have a Zombies and Helbrutes commission. 40 zombies on round bases and 2 Helbrutes with Grey Knight Terminator heads. This is an extension to the Bloodletters and Ezekiel commission I had a little while back.

The other commission is a Lord of the Rings commission. I will be using Viking models as base figures for Rohan warriors. They have some nice bases from Secret Weapon Miniatures and some nice cloaks for the soldiers.

And here is the end of this Firestorm Armada commission. An Aquan Prime dreadnought with a compliment of fighters. Very subtle shading in the blues. The lighting in the pictures makes it more so. A little on the desaturated side, but I think still conveys the organic, ocean-like nature of Aquan Prime ships.

On to the next commission!

Sorylian defence platforms complete. Keeping the teal colour scheme for the Sorylians I had done previously, these defence platforms are going to look great beside their cousins.

Finished the Directorate Defense Platform battlegroup. This consisted of a battlestation and 4 defense platforms. I was asked to match the colour scheme of the Syndicate. The same off white, red trim, and brass/gold doodads with a bit of steel thrown in, and the varnish finish.

The Battleships are complete. With these two done, the Syndicate are done. Now, on to the defence platforms!

Continuing on with the commission, I have completed the Syndicate cruisers. Like the last commission, I finished the ships with a varnish coat and set the colour scheme as the American Great White Fleet.

Totally forgot to post pictures of the assembled models before I started painting. Unfortunately, the Aquan Prime dreadnought is missing the piece that attaches the ship to the rods, so I am waiting for that to come in. However, the two defence groups are assembled and the Syndicate battlegroup is stripped, all ready to get painted. The Oroshan Imperium group has already been painted.

I went for a more saturated colour scheme for the Oroshan because I wanted them to have a more lively feel. Besides, reading the lore, the Oroshan have many varieties of hair colours and I imagine them to look like humanoid lions without snouts and noses. The box colour scheme is purple and a sickly yellow look. I went for a lion’s mane or healthy savannah grass kind of yellow and kept the purple bits.

If the Oroshan ships look front-heavy, that’s because they are. Very much so. Particularly the dreadnought. It sits well in the pictures though!

Also, I got new photo backdrops. Love the look of them. Really a step up from the improvised two-piece black one I had. I only got these 2 colours, but I think they will do for now.

I have been asked to do another batch of Firestorm Armada. Much bigger than last time. Here, we have got ships from numerous factions, some planetary defence groups, dreadnought, and more. There are a bunch more Syndicate ships that I will be following the Great White Fleet paint scheme once again. Very excited.

This small commission is now complete. Ezekiel has been slightly chaosified and will be used as a Necrosius. Did lots of blending throughout the model and a few conversions. The banner top is replaced with a chaos star, any Dark Angels iconography (and purity seals) have been removed and/or replaced with chaos icons. Particularly one of the books on his person has a chaos star on it, and his left hand has an eye on it. The banner has chaos symbols painted in blood and the label says MORTEM, latin for death.
