Showcase: Father Knight

During the month of August, I set commission work aside and worked on an entry for the Capital Palette (Nova Open’s painting competition), and Mayacast’s Q3 Masterglass competiton.

The model I chose was the Panoceania Father Knight model from Infinity’s Operation: Icestorm set.

Color Choice

My original idea with this model was to make a centerpiece ...

Nova Open 2017, Day 3 and 4

Day 3

Day 3 was another long class with Roman – Building a Display Base.  It was the only seminar I had all day and it started at 10am, so I went and worked out in the morning before grabbing some breakfast and finally getting to the hotel for the class.

Roman started us off with a ...

Nova Open Recap – Days 1 & 2

The Nova Open is my home convention, it’s about 10 minutes from my house.  I’ve gone for the past several years – usually as a Press Ganger helping run the Warmachine & Hordes events for Privateer Press.  With the dissolution of the ‘gang this year, I decided to take more time for myself this ...

[Showcase] Sunset Retribution Army #2

Note:  The blue armor seems to be horrible to photograph.  No matter what settings I use, the effect on the model isn’t being captured well.  As a result, they look somewhat flat and off in photos, but they look stellar in person.  I’m going to keep at it, but as reference, here’s the original ...

[Mayacast Masterglass Entry]: Warsenal Pillbox

It’s storytime.  Grab your blanket and a snack, it’s a long one.

My local buddies got hyped on Infinity recently, and I dove onto the hype train head-first.

Less recently, I was given the Military Order starter box for Panoceania years ago as a birthday present.  It was partly a way for a friend to invite me ...

[Showcase] Sunset Retribution Army

I had the pleasure of delivering this army to its owner last weekend.  It was a long haul, and many things were learned, and in the end, it’s quite the sight to behold.

Items of note:

  • Helynna’s flourescent pink mowhawk
  • Imperatus’ action pose
  • 24 friggin’ Sentinels
  • Sylys Wyshnyllyr (painted in about two days)

Sunset Retribution Scheme & Test Models

I mentioned last time, that I had commission work coming in that would cause the personal projects to get set aside for a while.  Well, here’s an update on what’s going on!

The main commission I was talking about is a pair of 75-pt Retribution lists with about 20 pts of overlap.  The inspiration for ...

[40k] [WIP] Urban Tau Battlesuit

After getting back from the NOVA Open, I needed to work on something different than Warmachine and Hordes.  Different sculptors and model manufacturers have different aesthetics and that means they offer different painting experiences.  I needed a change of pace, so I dug out my Tau and started working on one of the new(er) XV-8 Crisis ...
