Ok so I decided hey why not to get show you all my WIP's and get feedback and whatnots. I do commissions like so many other gamers, not so much for money(my normal day job pays a hell of a lot more) just more for the fun of doing stuff that well doesnt cost me money to do. Feel free to leave any form of comment as I love feedback,and hopefully you all will take some ideas from the minis and build some cool stuff of your own. Also I have a link to my blogsit at the bottom of my posts so check it out as I have a contest and what not going right now. So without further adu I kick off this soon to be ongoing thread with these pics. Warning this post is pic heavy.

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

Love the idea for the Khorne Berzerkers. I think I might use that for my zerkers. Also what parts did you use for the pre herrisy speeder?

I used a normal bike by cutting off the front part. Then for the wings they are from the landspeeder sprue though plasticard works great(and cheaper) too. And all of my wires are guitar strings. $5.00 for a large set of them that has lasted me almost 2 years now. Best DEAL EVER!!!!!

Ok so I have gotten a little bit of work done. I rebroke down the speeder and have laid a better foundation for the final piece. I then worked a little on a commission piece of U.S Marines(shiver!!!!! army all the way) for a good customer of mine. Finally I started on some techniques for a different style of a non metallic rustid metal for the Herald of Nurgle. Remember people he's just a test model for a later Mamom so I definately want feed back good or bad. So without further Ado I give you todays work.

Alrighty one and all so it has been a little time since my last post as well I have been extremely busy with work. Had a bunch of inspections what have you so it has been early mournings late nights for me. That said I got a few more layers on ther herald, and a little bit of work on side progect here and there. Once I can find where I put my dremel battery I can evenout the dreds shape a little bit. Make no mistake i nthe end the dred is just a learning exp. I am doing to teach myself sculpting and what not. I have also been extremely busy doing commission jobs and have a full plate on that. Someone loved my style on my flawless sons and commissioned me (with extra money) to do him a bunch really fast. That said heres some pics. Also you will see some flagellants with lasguns. These will be traitor gaurdsmen I am doing most likely penal legion, but who knows at the moment for my adepticon team. More to come. So without further adu here are some pics.

[Thumb - PICT0722.JPG]
some more work on teh pre-heresy dred not much though

[Thumb - PICT0724.JPG]
only a few more layers on him sadly but someday he will be done. Added this one for you dave thanks for the inspiration:)

[Thumb - PICT0725.JPG]
after talking to Ron from FTW blogspot I took upon his idea with doing a speeder bike. I will post a tutorial on teh next one, but at current I am waiting on some Dark Eldar bitz as he suggested. THANKS RON:)

@ Tim the Biovre : Thanks man

@malfred: I inted to do some more work on him this next weekend as I should be finishing up a bunch of commissions this week. He is I would say only oooo 30% completely painted as of this date. Remember he is just the test model too for mammon but I will try and get some more pics up tomorrow or tuesday of him from different angels.

No problem you are an active Dakka member with a respectable opinion. I figured since you were helping out so kindly I bring up your good work for the others to see. That and its been awhile. Hopefully your house move is going along smoothly. Gork an Mork will allow such things to pass but do not put off your models too long or the Ork Gods be angry!

Fast Pic update since it was requested. The FOW is for a client and is just one of almost 2 dozen vehicles. I just need to complete the drivers. The still WIP eldar phoenix lord is for a contest winner from my blog. He won it just for being a subscribor. The traitor gaurd are for adepticon 2010. The truck is their chimera, and I was shooting for an army FMTV. S to keep it short and sweet heres some pics. The egyptian dude s for kicks and is from War Gods of Egyptus(great models decent game).

Some really nice stuff in here man. I certainly enjoy the mix of things you have going on here, though I have no idea how you manage to focus on so many different things (I can barely manage one thing!) I particularly like the Herald, traitor guard, and muffin (okay, that last one is just tasty); the commission of Mr. Salamander is some great brush work, so I'm looking forward to seeing this stuff painted up too!

thanks, sadly I wish I didn't have split focus as it makes me feel well ADD, but I have to as often it is a mix of commissions to tourney armies to just stuff for practice. The egyptian dude has an altar he is worshipping that will get done up at the end, and my origonal plan was to have an eye of ra engraved on the flooring but didn't have the dremel at the time. Though I may still paint one IDK. The base for him was simple plastic card cut at random and placed.

Correct, the panzer was part of a commission of almost 24 vehicles. I origonally painted a 2k pts army for him then he came back wanting vehicles. It's interesting actually as I cut off the guns to it and replaced them with brass wires(much stronger) cut to same length and filed to fit exactely then I magnatized it on the turret. Not bad when I only charge $10.00 a vehicle (plus shipping).
