Its been a busy two weeks here in the studio! Picked up some new furniture and did some shuffling, but those pictures are for a different time! Most of that time was spent getting this Iron Hands commission completed!
This project consisted of:
- 4 Techmarines
- 2 Servitors
- 22 Tactical Marines
- 2 Rhinos/Razorbacks
- Land Raider Achilles
- Thunderfire Cannon
- 2 Ironclad Dreadnoughts

This time around we have a duo of Blood Bowl teams done, dusted, and ready for the pitch! Really enjoyed this commission, especially the Lizardmen as I own the models myself and really want to get mine painted now! Let's walk through the teams.
First is the Lizardmen. The models come from Impact Miniatures, and are gorgeous little models, especially the Skinks! Consisting off 8 skinks, 6 saurus, and are Kroxigor, this is are team to be reckoned with! The client wanted the team themed around Texas A&M, which is a great compliment to the green of the alligators. I've only had a chance to play with them on the computer, but Lizardmen are a brutal team to play. The skinks rival the Elves in terms of speed and agility, while the saurus and Kroxigor give them the hitting ability of orcs! Look out for them!
The Pro Elves come from Willy Miniatures I believe, and the team consists of 8 blockers, 2 catchers, 2 throwers, and 2 Wardancers. This team was themed around Keanu Reeve's movie the Replacements, and the colors flow really nicely. Elves were always the bane of my Orcland Raiders due to their speed, and this team should be no exception!
Whew! Loved working on this commission, but it's time to get back to the Grimdark future of the 41st Millennium! Next up is a detachment of Salamanders Drop Pods, followed by the sons of Ferrus Mannus!

Sorry for the lack of posts, I got a wonderful summer illness that threw a whole bunch of delays in my plans! I'm also working on a set of blood Bowl teams at the moment, but I figured I'd break them up with a mini project! A buddy of mine picked it up for me to paint as part of a trade we did. I always love working on some Forge World vehicles, so I happily obliged!
All weapon options are magnetized, from the heavy bolter/Lascannon sponsons, to the 4 turret choices. I personally love the look of the Plasma Executioner, couple it with 2 Lascannon shots and you've got overkill written all over it! The hatch also comes off to allow for Sergeant Chronus, who I'll be wrapping up for the tank in a bit! Such a lovely kit, even if Predators are hard to justify these days! The last picture shoes it's current state, which is immolating cultists in the fury of a dying sun!
As I said next up is two Blood Bowl teams, I'm very excited to show these off! After that is Drop Pods, Iron Hands, and Infinity! OH MY!

Getting my Blogger game back on track! Will hopefully keep this pace going from now on, this is just as important as Facebook and Instagram!
This was a fun little repaint project I got a sudden urge to work on one night. I'd wanted to test out some basic camo effects with the airbrush, but painter's tape doesn't get that nice organic shape and I didn't have any masking putty. Cue a 1 AM run to our local grocery store for play doh! Worked the charm I'd say, and allowed me to focus on decal work and basic weathering. I also pulled an old Forge World Chimera Tank commander model out of my bits box and got him in the hatch!
As you can see by the title, this model is for sale; you can find the eBay auction HERE! As much as I want to do a Tank heavy Guard army at the moment, I've got too many projects as it is, so this guy is on the chopping block!
Up next is some Blood Bowl teams, as well as some work on my personal Imperial Fists army! Trying to get that Strike Force Ultra formation going....
