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.

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.

Had this model for a year now and finally finished it. My first 72mm scale historical miniature. I tried to go for a malnourished, tired look about him. The rest of his clothing worn, but not dirty. His base is done like old dusty cobblestone. Some beaten texture to the metals as well. It was a lot of fun to paint.

My viewers got me to do this to myself during my twitch stream. A dragon riding a unicorn, on rollerskates, throwing a giant koi. My thumb acts as the interaction. There were many laughs to be had.

Last year, I attended a painting masterclass with Alfonso “Banshee” Giraldes. This is the bust we all got. Finally got around to finishing it. Using the theory I learned, I only used red, yellow, blue, black, and white for all the colours on this model. 

Wildly different from what I am used to, and I loved it. The next bust I’ll do, Tiger Ace Michael Wittmann WW2, will be more outside my comfort zone. Maybe no reds. That’d be interesting.

Finished the Braves, armed with throwing spears and blowpipes. A part of a commission. I was asked to do some warpaint in red and blue on some of the warriors. Blue is for wisdom, red is for hot-bloodedness. I am not sure what the placement or the quantity of paint means, but I think it gets the point across.
