    hey CMON...

    Throwback Thursday time...
    this time i'm throwing it back to 2012, and my first time getting invited to contribute to the Clash for a Cure, a convention that raises money for Cancer research foundations...
    since they came out, i had wanted to paint one of the Privateer Press Warmachine Freebooters, but never had the chance...
    since i had free rein for this project, i finally had my chance to paint a pirate...
    i hadn't worked much with purple, so Broadside Bart seemed like a good choice...
    plus, he has such an awesome hat!!!






    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like him...

    cheers

    thanks, leifdk1978...
    i had a lot of fun painting this guy, right up to the point where i dropped him on the tile, two weeks before i had to send him off for the charity auction...
    talk about a heart attack moment!!!
    luckily, i fixed him up, and nobody is the wiser...

    here are the latest WIP pics of the last two vehicles in the Ultramarines commission...
    i have lightened the blue a bit...
    hopefully, the decals should make it look Ultramarines enough, because this is as light as i'm going with this blue...

    the scroll on the front of the Rhino should give me a nice canvas to do some more detailed Gothic lettering, much more than a little mini does...




    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like them...

    hey CMON...

    here are the last WIP pics of these two tanks...
    they just need a couple of finishing touches tonight, and then they will be ready to go in the mail...
    the Rhino needs the lettering detailed a little more, and then i will distress the scroll...
    the Predator needs to be glued together (which is why one sponson is sagging...doh!!!), and have a bit more weathering...
    in the end, i think the blue and red has turned out alright...

    hey CMON...

    it is Throwback Thursday!!!
    this time i have Vulkan He'stan, the Forgefather of the Salamanders Space Marine Chapter...
    this is another Gamer's Series model, from 2009, where i recreate the 'Eavy Metal studio's paintjobs using P3 paints...

    green is my favorite color, so i had a lot of fun painting this guy...
    the subtle green scales on the armor were the best bit to play with...

    hey CMON...

    here is the first look at the final version of the last two tanks in this phase of the Ultramarines commission...
    my client wanted something a bit different from the previous vehicles i painted for this army, so the Predator has been painted in the 3rd Company scheme, since they fight alongside the Tyranid Hunters veterans...
    the lighter blue, and strong red, will stand out from the rest of the vehicles...
    instead of going with pure P3 Exile Blue, i went with a 1-1 mix of EB and P3 Cygnar Blue Highlight, and a final line-highlight of pure CBH...

    going with the Rhino as Cassius' personal ride has given it a nice menacing look in that black...
    adding the Tyranid shoulder plates was a fun touch, and getting to paint bigger lettering was a refreshing change...
    the larger than normal surface to paint letters onto gave me a chance to go more Gothic with my font...

    Nice job on the tanks Jah , the first looks like it's come straight from the forge but the second ,the rhino, has seen many campaigns.

    thanks, Terrafirma...

    here are the final pics of Cassius' Rhino...
    this tank was a nice change from all of the blue i have been painting for the last few months...
    black is usually pretty unforgiving, but the style i have chosen to paint this in makes for a quick, good looking tabletop paintjob...
    now i just need to paint up Cassius himself to ride in it...

    thanks, oistene...
    i had fun getting a little more Gothic with my script on this one...

    after a week off to pack up, move to L.A., and unpack again (since my passport was expiring yesterday), i am back to work...

    here are the final pics of the Predator that i painted for the Strike Force Cassius Ultramarines army commission...
    the client wanted something a bit different from the Tyranid Hunter Veteran tanks that i had painted...
    i went with the 3rd Company, since they are known to fight alongside the Veterans...
    the color placement is different, but it sticks to the client's brief of dark blue, black, red, and bronze...

    hey CMON...

    i totally forgot Throwback Thursday the last couple of weeks, since my schedule has been all out-of-whack with the packing, and the move...
    i'll get back to that next week...

    until then, here is my next piece in the Ultramarines commission...
    Chief Librarian Tigurius, the ugliest Librarian sculpt ever...



    i have to say, now that i have started working with it, i hate Finecast...
    now i know that i was right to steer well clear of this material before...
    it is full of holes, warped, and rubbery...
    i'll stick with plastic, metal, and proper resin for my own collection...

    cheers

    hey CMON...

    here are the first two stages of Tigurius...
    i started with lighter basecoats than usual, trying to figure out what i wanted to do with this guy...
    afterwards, i gave it all a heavy wash of Vallejo Smoke, which pretty much made the light basecoats pointless...
    this just goes to show that i should stop trying to switch up my painting style, and just go from light to dark, as i like to do...



    here i have cleaned up the blue armor, laid down the red, retouched the scrolls, and given the tabard a nice solid base for the yellow...



    thanks for looking...
    hopefully he will look cool in the end...

    hey CMON...

    Throwback Thursday returns, after a brief intermission...
    this week i have my second display piece...
    it is not often that i get a chance to use a resin display plinth, but i really like what it adds to a mini...
    this model, Tyrant Xerxis from Privateer Press, painted in 2011, is one of my favorite Hordes Warlocks...
    those big maces, and samurai style armor, are just so cool...
    it was a good opportunity to work on my reds, too...
    i feel like i am finally getting the hang of this color...

    hey CMON...

    i've been slacking a little bit the last few days, but since it's my birthday, i'll give you all something...
    work in progress on the worst Space Marine model in the whole range...

    he's coming along...
    i finished the armor, and am on to painting my least favorite color, yellow...

    i got a bit tired of looking at this guy, and started on Sgt. Chronus...
    pics of him coming in a day or two...
    until then, here is where i'm at with Tigurius...




    thanks for looking...
    i hope you like what i have, so far...

    thanks, KruleBear...
    Tiggi will be finished over the next three days, for the DakkaDakka paint challenge next week, since i missed the "i loathe this model" contest here last month...

    well, that is one more birthday in the books...
    here's to many more years of getting paid to paint toy soldiers, and sending silly photos to my clients so they can see how their heroic minis will be posed...
    this is a Deathwatch Space Marine, armed with a power axe and storm shield, or a spatula and cutting board, depending upon what the Game Master decides to throw at him...



    taking a break from Tiggi, i got some work done on Sgt. Chronus...
    he is being painted in the same scheme as the majority of the vehicles in this Ultramarines army...
    quick and dirty...




    thanks for looking...

    @Zab: Mephiston could definitely go for a plastic makeover...

    @KruleBear: i was having trouble not laughing at myself in that pic!!!

    this is the last WIP for Tiggi, since he needs to be done tonight...
    one more layer of yellow to go, and then just a few fine details to finish up...



    here's his base, and the other two for Chronus and Cassius...



    Chronus, himself, is coming along...



    i'll get some better quality pics for the finished guys, but i am in way too much pain to take good photos today...
    typical, on a night when i can't just take the evening off...
    time to power through, and finish this Libby...

    thanks for looking...

    hey CMON...

    the first character of the tabletop quality commission...
    after loads of tanks, it is nice to paint a little guy again...

    Ultramarines Chief Librarian Tigurius, seconded to Strike Force Cassius and the Tyranid Hunter Veterans...
