Hey all,

It's that time of year again. I have been painting full time officially for five years last April, so this will be my 5th one of these reviews in some form or another. Although I am the one painting all these models, even I am surprised when the main army images are all laid out, both in the quantity and varying styles that have rolled through my hands.

So sit back and enjoy. Nothing to read or think too hard about here, just a lot of pictures! As usual for even more images, check the website or blog.


















































































































































































Until next year!

Well thanks!

And its just me. A lot of people assume I am a couple or more people, but I am too particular with how I do things, I'd end up wringing someone's neck.

Jaw dropping excellence at the sheer number of things painted!

Really like those White/Purple Inquisition. Know where I can find more pics of those? i especially love those non gw models I spot (one of which I can remember being a warmachine mage hunter assassin)

You have some great painting skills!

I'm floored by this. Are these all the armies you have done over the last 5 years? I'd be lucky to have done one of the smaller forces pictured in a year or so. Let alone all these in only 5 times that.

Utterly stunning work. Bravo, exalted.

No just 2012. January to December of last year.

And thanks for the kind words to you and those above you. Glad you all like the armies.

That Thousand Sons army is off the chart. Big fan of your work and didn't even realise it was you that did the Munchy Gutsmen, which is just genius. Dunno how I missed that Slaanesh army either. Stunning work, cheers for sharing.

ALL IN ONE YEAR?

Wow.


Actually you know what, its makes sense now. I remember commenting on the purple and silver Grey Knights. And i followed the 5 Titan blog with great interest. I also remeber seeing the Chaotic Blood Angels. Seriously though all these armies in one year is an impressive feat. Especially to such a high standard.

I think I have been stalking the photos of that blood angel army at least once a month since you first posted it, and I'm still finding new stuff in it that impresses me, and then you go and post this lot! How the hell am I supposed to find the to slobber over all of those!

Any chance you could share some wisdom on how you got the colour on chitin on the green and grey Nids?

The amount of quality work you manage to pull out is obscene... It would take most people a year just to put out of the boxes the models you managed to paint beautifully. Wish you health and more great results for 2013

Got milk?

All I can say about painting is that VMC tastes much better than VMA... especially black...

Still can't believe how managed you get to paint each year and to such an incredible standard. I wish I could see you paint a full army like this just to pick your technique since this is truly amazing

The Munchy Gutsman and BA/chaos armies are still my top 2 of 2012, possibly of ever. I have to go back and look at their thread every so often to show other people, or just refresh my admiration levels.

The sheer volume of productivity and completion that comes from your studio in a single year is more than 20-30....maybe even 50 other players will accomplish in a lifetime! Just incredible, I dont know where you find the time to do this, but im assuming you have painted so many armies by now it must be like clockwork for you. the colors, the effects you use....all of it is spot on. Your thousand sons army still remains the best, most creative/personalized army ive seen this yr. That army in just phoenomenal! I look foward to your productions in the 2013 year; your work is a big influence and inspiration for people on this site to continue painting and persevere through their own miniature projects.

4250 points of Blood Angels goodness, sweet and silky W12-L6-D4
1000 points of Teil-Shan (my own scheme) Eldar Craftworld in progress
800 points of unassembled Urban themed Imperial Guard

675 points of Commoraghs finest!

This.

I have done it so much now there is none of that frustration, mulling about, anxiety, just 100% enjoyment,

I suppose it's like working on a car, or anything like that. It is pretty knuckle-destroying sort of frustrating for a new person, but for someone who does it all the time as a professional there are no surprises, can just enjoy it.
