The next batch is complete. 2 warbosses are a blast from the past in the old Assault on Black Reach set. One is an Evil Sunz and one is a Deathskulls scheme. I made sure there are no red big Squigs this time. There’s a few more treasure tokens for Frostgrave. I’ve done a bunch in other commissions too, but one cannot have too many treasure tokens.

Progress on the commission. I think this is the last of the Frostgrave scatter terrain… and Goblins, now that I think about it.

Glowforge adventures return with gaming aids! As of this time, we have played 1 game of Frostgrave and really liked it. We plan on playing more, so I have started to design and cut out persistent spell tokens in MDF and Acrylic.

Loving how the Fog spell turned out. Made sure to make it as per the parameters of the spell. 6″ wide, 3″ tall, and 1″ thick. I went for acrylic for the immersion. May look into tinted acrylics to make it look even better.

The wound dials will always have a special place in my heart. Functional doodads! I made 0-9 and 00-99 dials, stuck together by the power of magnets. My tokens are 25mm radius half-circle, and will fit around the smaller dial. Could be used for stacking spells like Call Storm. I’m making the dial’s magnets all the same polarity, so I am hoping to make the relatively interchangeable when I start making different colours and types.

Another fantastic addition to my repertoire of laser cut doodads and trinkets, a 15mm scale modular brick house. It will be the start of the buildings I am designing for playing in Team Yankee/Flames of War, 15mm scale wargames. But since I don’t have Flames of War, it will just be for our Team Yankee Games.

As usual, cut in MDF, I meticulously designed the brick and roofing patterns to relatively fit in the size of the pieces. I still have some work to do as the patterns sometimes don’t translate well into the laser cutter for whatever reason and it skips some lines.

The patterns are scored, the walls and windows cut out. I want to play with the power of the scoring to make the depth shallower. I want to be able to pick out the grout better when I end up painting this.

Looking forward to more iterations of this design. The next thing I am making is a petrol station and a Brick wall.

The first of 2 models. The Terminus Est, metal mini from Battlefleet Gothic. Some conversion work sculpting the maw and Nurgle icons on the back. Going for a demonic infestation centralized along the spine of the ship. Need some purple/blue to add to the unnaturalness.

Laser Cutter – Paint Rack 2 March 3, 2019

I have not posted my first paint rack, so I will do that in time. This second one has a ball bearing mechanism as I needed something strong enough to hold up this many paints and still turn smoothly.

This iteration holds up to 70 paints. I have put all of my GW and P3 paints into my own 14mL drop bottles or in 17mL Vallejo bottles. Either fit well. The idea of these are to make a paint rack that takes less of a spacial footprint than having the paint sitting there or on a standard stand that holds paint. For most instances, I think it does.

It does not look as impressive as having all your paint in rows on stands or on a wall, but it’s an ideal space saver with someone like me who has limited desk space and can’t put up organizers on walls.

So close to calling him done. I’ve been working on him for a bit, and only now have gotten to weathering the face paint. I will be toning down the brow sweat before the completed pictures.

My first warband in Warhammer Underworlds. Orruk aesthetics have always drawn me. But have never gotten an army. One day, I will get into AoS and start an Iron Jawz army.

I painted these over the course of 8 hours, speed painting late into the night, to have them ready for a tournament. I didn’t have to even paint them, but as a complete dunce at gaming, I should at least have e a painted army lol. Ended up not last, better than what I thought I was going to do XD

Shapeways has done a wonderful job in the space ship miniatures. No flash, no mold lines, no stepping. I don’t plan on testing durability though.

Ork Megadread looks amazing. As expected. I added plenty of weathering and stains for the Orkish character.

Queen of the Night Bust September 28, 2017

Ever since I took those master classes, I am on a bust binge. I look for them all over and I drool when I see what I want. I still love all miniatures, but busts and 75mm miniatures afford the painter a way to show off their skill and interpretive skills in a way that smaller scale miniatures do not.

This one is the Queen of the Night bust from Black Sun Miniatures. I got a bunch of models from them and you will see them slowly come out of the woodwork over time. This bust came from the Mathieu Fontaine airbrush masterclass I took over the summer and I am using the skills learned there on this bust.
