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.

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.

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.
