Stormstrider crews

These are the two crews of the Cygnar Stormstriders I posted a while back. Finally added the finishing touches. They should look sexy on top of those battle engines.

Here is a little music for you.

Kickstarter is addictive

Shiny object syndrome has struck me recently and it seems to all be centered around Kickstarter. I find that splitting between friends helps justify the cost.

Here are some new projects that I've pledged into.
If they strike your fancy, why not go ahead and pledge your support too.

Skarre, Queen of the Broken Coast

Just finished up this commission piece for a local gamer. 
Nice miniature to paint up and the face is probably one of the best ones I've done so far. 
More photos and video below.

Iron Kingdoms (part 3)

This past weekend we had our first encounter with the Iron Kingdoms campaign. This was very much a learning experience as my total amount of Warmachines equates to two games. The mechanics are very easy to learn and the play was very smooth. Here is who I brought to the fight:

Human, Khador, Arcane Mechanik/Man-at-Arms

Thoughts on this character is that he is more of a supportive class. His primary role is helping with repairs to Steamjacks or creating new Mechanika items for the party. Being a Will Weaver allows him to run magic spells a little more forcefully than a Focus Caster (as long as he doesn't fail a Fatigue roll) and his Arcantik Bolt spell is useful for shutting down enemy Steamjacks. With his Polarity Shield spell any charges against his front arc are canceled and his Defense Line ability adds +1 to his ARM while in base-to-base with a friendly character. This lets him act as a nice decoy when in city terrain.

Iron Kingdoms (part 2)

The time has come for modding and sculpting on my Iron Kingdoms miniature. The base sculpt of the miniature is a Widowmaker Marksman. After cleaning off any mold lines, I spent some time with a chisel and file removing the fur trim on the bottom of his great coat. After that I used a mix of miliput and super sculpey and created armor plates, the cobblestone base, and the shield. Once I get my bits order in I can start on the head swap and left hand.

More soon to come!

Airbrush 101

If you have been on the fence when it comes to getting a airbrush for your hobby needs but dont know the first thing about them then this video is for you. It is a tad bit long but the information is great. I learned a few new things even though I've been airbrushing for a while.

Video updates

I have been rather busy lately with multiple tasks, but I have not been lazy when it comes to painting. Now I would like to take this time and show off some videos of past projects that I've just barely got around to uploading.

Personal project

I don't play Warmachines, yet, but when I started taking on commissions I caught the bug. After seeing the colossals, it was pretty much a full on case of shiny syndrome.
This is the 25 point force that I'll be painting for myself (high standard) to learn how to play the game.

Sunday, September 9, 2012

Cygnar Storm Striders

Finished these up for a local commission. The crew are still on the painting table and should be finished shortly.

Relic Knights week (wrap up)

Here is the final video from Throne of Angels featuring two of the Relic Knights.
Kickstarter campaign ends Sunday so if you haven't got in on that yet, now would be the best time so you can score those awesome exclusives.

Are you excited?

Bombshell Miniatures Kickstarter campaign

I happen to love pinup, it's an inspiring form of art. I happen to have a few friends in the pinup lifestyle and their attitude on life is so uplifting, not to mention they look stunning. So that gets me to the topic on hand; Bombshell Miniatures has started a kickstarter campaign to promote a miniatures line that features pinup babes.

Is this something you might be interested in?

Relic Knights week on Throne of Angels.

As the Relic Knights kickstarter campaign progresses along at an amazing pace, we are blessed that our good buddy over at Throne of Angels landed an interview with the main man of Cool Mini or Not. ToA will have a whole week dedicated to Relic Knights and to start it all off is this overview video.

And to those who dont remember all the photos I took of Relic Knights at GenCon you can see the article here.
Let me know what you think about this upcoming game.

Tuesday, August 28, 2012


I stumbled across this video yesterday. The series is addictive and will have a total of 48 episodes in the next 5 months. Let me know what you think.

Gencon wrap up

Here are the rest of the photos I took while I was in Indianapolis. Also be sure to check out the other videos that I helped to record here.

GenCon floor walk (Dust: Warfare)

Dust: Warfare is an amazing game if you're into weird war and walking tanks :D
I got into this game not too long ago and I am impressed by the rules and amazing looking miniatures. This year at GenCon Fantasy Flight had the newest expansion rules to bring the Russians into the game.

GenCon floor walk (Fantasy Flight)

The area Fantasy Flight took up at GenCon was massive and only a 1/5 was actually the selling area. All weekend long the demo areas were filled with people checking out the array of games FF puts out. New this year is a games called X-Wing which is based on the Star Wars films.

Thursday, August 23, 2012

GenCon floor walk (CMON)

So the CMON area was huge, I mean really huge, they took up 3 stalls and each one was packed full of stuff. All the staff that was there were really helpful and I got to demo some games that I look forward to play in the future.

GenCon floor walk (Cipher Studios)

Cipher Studios was part of the CMON booth of epicness.
Got in a Anima Tactics demo and took photos of their amazing display case which had both AT and Helldorado.

GenCon floor walk (Wrath of Kings)

Wrath of Kings!
Dont know anything about this game? Well then you haven't been following the Throne of Angels blog or channel. This is a games currently in the works and will be produced by CMON. If you haven't seen any of minis in the line then you're for a treat. The demo of the games was exciting and I picked up on the rules pretty quick.
Isn't that an awesome diorama?

Gencon floor walk (Soda Pop Miniatures)

Soda Pop had a very active booth that was part of the large CMON space. I spent a lot of cash picking up expansions for Super Dungeon Explore (one for me and two for friends) along with some minis for Soda Pop's upcoming game Relic Knights. Speaking of, Relic Knights has a Kickstarter campaign going on right now.

Gencon floor walk (Privateer Press)

The space Privateer Press took up was huge!. One half was for demos of Level 7, Warmachine/Hordes, and Bodger. Their store half had a line circling it the whole con (which made taking photos of display cases interesting).

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

GenCon floor walk (Catalyst Game Labs: Leviathans)

Leviathans: Monsters in the Sky is a alt history air ship battle game from Catalyst Games Labs. I had loads of with the demo and the pre-painted minis are nicely sculpted.

GenCon floor walk (Heavy Gear)

If you're into mech combat (who isn't) then you'll want to check out Heavy Gear from Dream Pod 9.
They had some amazing looking mechs in their display cases and the demo was well worth trying out. Also in the work is a new video game from Stompy Bot.

GenCon floor walk (MERCS)

Got in a nice demo at the MERCS booth and also picked up some great looking game counters, a measuring template, and a patch to add to the collection. Looking forward to painting up my KemVar troops and getting some play in.

GenCon floor walk pt1

Here we have some items on display at the Games Workshop & Forgeworld booth at GenCon.

Painting Stormwall(s) pt3

Some good news and bad news. Just recently my computer decided to get a nice corruption in Windows that's the bad news). Good news is now that I dont have a functioning computer to offer up distractions, I'll be getting a ton of more painting done. So, these posts will be a little lackluster until I can get it back up and running and use something other than my phone for pictures.

Onto the Stormwalls...

How to celebrate a milestone?

WoW! It looks like the page views just eclipsed that 1k mark.
To thank everyone who's visited my blog I'll be doing a giveaway. More details coming soon.

So I noticed that my page views are edging closer to 1000. This is an exciting little milestone for me. As my painting skills grow there will be more interesting things for people to see on here. I feel as though I should celebrate this little achievement in some way. 

So I ask you, my dear audience, what shall we do to celebrate?

Miniature Exchange pt2

Here is the finished dwarf.
The title for this piece will be called "Manscape".
Cant wait to see the reaction from my opponent.

Miniature Exchange

On the local forum there was a painting challenge of sorts that I threw my name into. The challenge was a mini exchange, in which random members would get paired up and swap a mini to paint within the month time frame.
I was given a dwarf and free reigns on the painting scheme.
Here is what I have so far with less than a week to go before the deadline:
I must remember to dig out my camera and photo setup to get some really good photos for you guys.

Until then I will catch you laters,

Throne of Everblight

Finished this battle engine for the Hordes faction Legion of Everblight.
Behold the Throne of Everblight:
I was rather ecstatic to tackle this beast and it got me to try out the two brush blending technique. Never painting of this faction before I searched the interwebs for a nice friendly tutorial to get the skin just right.


Here is a posse of gun toting cowboys and lawmen.
These came to me as a commission form a local father looking to get him and his son into tabletop gaming.

Bombs & Bunnies - Avatar design ideas

Just trying to get a feel for what people imagine their Avatars to be for B&B. This game is set in a digital world where your imagination can run wild. Cyberpunk and anime give a lot of room for what someone's character can be. 

Leave a comment below and describe what your Avatar, if it could be sculpted, would be. 
Please include: Avatar's name, fictional bio, guild name, and general description of what your avatar would look like to you.

Coming soon...Battle Engines!!!

A big order has come down the pipeline. Like the title reads Battle Engines from Privateer Press will be the next big project for commission. These are what you'll be seeing in the next few weeks, once they arrive that is.

Nothing like a few good commissions to keep that painting drive strong.

Chain painting

Just finished some Black Templar bikes. These are the first wave of minis for a long running commission.
I can see why a person needs a lot of motivation and patience when it comes to chain painting.

More to come,

So close yet so far away

Over the weekend I traveled down to do the Color Me Rad fun run with some friends and it just so happens that Blue Table Painting studio was only a few minutes away from where I would be crashing for the night. As I got to their place I noticed it was empty of life so I called up the number on the site and had a little chat with the Shawn. It was just my luck that the rare chance I make it to that part of the state is the same weekend BTP is out of town.
The dice gods were not with me that day.

Here's me at the end of the race.
