Great work getting your Eldar kill team completed. They look fantastic.

Congratulations on the Pateron. That's a big step.

Thanks for the kind and warm feedback everybody. It means a lot and I'm having a lot of fun with the Patreon so far!


Hey guys, I was feeling nostalgic for some converted miniatures of mine that have sat around without paint for a little too long, so I painted up this honour guard:



I have another that I'd like to do sometime soon, but I need to get onto working on my entry for Para's painting comp, and I have a different plan for that

Nice work! Love how ridiculously massive that shoulder pad is, brings back fond memories of decking out my Marine in the most ludicrously fancy armour in the Space Marine multiplayer mode...

Magnificent work all around, once again! The Honor Guard looks the part, as the rest of your Ultramarines, and while I'm not the biggest fan of the Eldar, I've always liked the Biel Tan green vehicle scheme, which you've executed flawlessly on the weapon platform.

@Para Thank you Yeah, I did exactly the same thing! That game was fantastic, I'm replaying the campaign with my friend at the moment.

@mcmattila thank you kindly! Yes, it's strange. Eldar are hit and miss for me. Sometimes I'm really into them and dig their aesthetic (enough, obviously, to make a kill team), but other times I'm quite apathetic. I'd be keen to see them get new models.


Hey all! Here's my most recent model:











I'm very pleased with the finish. I took my time all over the mini, and tried doing some subtle glazes to enhance contrast across the model. I have so much second company now (commanders especially), I figured its about time to expand a little.

Great work as usual, and nice to see you bring your talents to another Company as well.

The glazes are really nice as well, you can really see how the help the transition on places like the lower breastplate.

I was going to remark on the same thing. I don't know if it is just because you mentioned it, but there is a nice depth to the blue, especially around the chest.

If you are branching out, why not do one in the trim of all the companies? You need more captains anyway.

Nice to see you finally join the cool kids over in the 3rd. It’s where it’s at!

Hey all, thanks for your awesome and kind feedback. Here's my latest update! I was getting sick of painting minis one at a time, so I busted out this squad for kill team games! A couple subs in there to give me choices with weapons and stuff. Painting Tau this way is pesky and needs patience, but the results are really rewarding!

So not only can you consistently crank out amazing paintjobs, but you can do whole squads all at once?

Witchcraft!

Break out the torches and pitchforks, I sense heresy! This is not right and/or natural.

Plus, filthy xenos.

The paint job on the primaris may be your best ultra yet. And the surprise tau are awesome, even if a total change of direction!

Hey all! Thank you as always for your lovely feedback. It's inspiring and really motivates me to keep on trucking as fast as possible!

Here's a test model for the Sons of Orar that I finished yesterday. I'm planning on doing (surprise surprise) a killteam for them, fit with a commander too. The next miniature I'm working on is my own take of Alavaan, chapter master of the Sons of Orar. He's a regular SM in power armour, but I feel like my friend and I can agree on some custom built rules for him in Kill Team Commanders - It winds me up to no end that all the SM character choices are primaris.

Nice chapter choice - I enjoy the Sons of Orar. Got a Vanguard sergeant in my Deathwatch from there. Very well painted too - I like the clean, deep red and the fine highlights.

One of these days you are going to paint a crappy looking mini. Going to fly too close to the sun doing something odd and fail.

Today is not that day. Tomorrow is not looking good either. You continually amaze by painting diferent models and diferent schemes, and makeing it all look crisp, clean, and effortless.

But some day, whatever fell pact you made for your skills will run it’s course, and you will rejoin the ranks of the mortals.

Some day, but not soon.

Hey all! One week later and I'm back with an update. It feels like longer, and I've painted an entire character in that time, but it's felt like I've been lagging a bit these past few days. In any event, I have stuff to show!

Some of you may remember this fellow, who I kitbashed about three years ago:



I have since reused the parts to make my interpretation of Alavaan, the Chapter Master of the Sons of Orar and a classic looking space marine at that:







While I'm a little sad that the original mini was disassembled (this happened a long time ago and all the parts have been used for various minis), I think Alavaan has made for a great use of the original kitbash's body parts. I've wanted to combine the emperor's champ legs with a sternguard torso for a long time, so I'm glad I finally realised that on a finished miniature. Mork knows it was enough hard work to cut those metal buggers apart in the first place

Sons of Orar are looking great! I got to say that I like Alavaan more than your original model. The shoulder pads made the model look top-heavy, especially with the legs that weren't the default squat pose. Your Alavaan is more balanced.

@Azalle Thank you! They are very fun to paint. I'll definitely be eager to do a couple more when I'm rested from them a bit.

@mcmattila thank you. And yes, I agree! The mini looks a lot more like he's a clamshell monopose from GW, which is sort of what I aim for with my conversions (only that they are the only mini in existence that looks that way )

Finished a third son of Orar today. These three round off my entry for this month's dakka comp. I have some more built that I'll do soon, but for now I have some heretical matters to attend to

Hey all.

I made a post over in the P&M thread a while ago about GWs most artistic miniature, and have held the tidecaster up there for a long time as one of their best (in my opinion). I don't play AOS, however, and have not had an excuse to buy and paint her until now. My gaming group is about to embark on a new D&D campaign, so I wanted to use this miniature to represent my High Elf Battlemage. PRetty perfect if you ask me She was so fun to paint! A very satisfying miniature.

I don’t know, seems fishy...


I’ll agree that the color palette is very nice.

Now that you have a character model all painted up and pretty, expect a TPK in 3...2...1....

Lovely, indeed. I had not paid a whole lot of attention to the Idoneth beyond the big critters. This is a nice model. A lot of the sculpt, combined with the paintjob, is really giving me a romanticized 3 Kingdoms feel.
