sorrow

Hey guys painted this in a few hours more of a sketch in paint. It's just a press mould of a small statue so can't take any credit for sculpt but thought it would be a good idea to help me practice painting faces.

New year W.I.Ps

Hey guys happy new year to you all, 2016 was an odd year for my painting i very much lost the urge to paint and it felt more like a chore than a hobby, the fun definitely went out of painting for some reason i only painted 3 minis i think all year that is the least amount in a very long time. im back to enjoying painting now i guess that i was always painting with contests in mind and that took away the fun of it all. too serious i suppose, anyway im back on the horse and been working on a few things.
first is the awesome 75mm KY-RA from kabuki models i love this mini so much fun to paint. its still very much a work in progress but ive done enough to show it.

                                                  extreme close up wooooooe  !!!!!


Next to paint is the axe's and then on to the base, sorry for bad phone pics i will take some better ones soon
also working on a few other things



space marine (no chapter )
also been playing around with the citadel tints set. interesting !!!
anyways guys hope you have a great new year more to come soon. keep brush lickin. peace

Golden demon entry 2016

Hey guys sorry for the lack of posts of late, motivation has been at absolute zero for the last few months but things are getting back on track, must show you my entry for golden demon earlier in the year. Ultramarines leviathan dreadnought. this took me almost forever to get finished i lost track of how many hours i spent on it. there was also a banner that never got done so i wasnt totally happy in the end.
I got a finalist pin for it and for my other entries so 3 pins on the day not bad. more stuff soon, im thinking of painting some other model ranges and some busts next as i seamed to have burned out on gw at the mo. hope you like the pics.
peace

ULTRAMARINE

Hey guys its nearly crimbo again and its a busy time of year for me, so i decided not to take on anything to serious project wise, Although i have been building a complex base for a future project but the painting is going to push my limits so that will wait until after christmas when things are back to normal.
 So in the meantime i am painting the web store exclusive space marine (no1 i think there were 3) but ive added a few bits from the ultramarines up grade sprue. I've decided to go with the more modern darker armor that gw seam to paint these days years ago they were lighter. but like i said this will be a fun little project so not to fussed with perfection. just fun fun !!!

Asgrim the dwarf pt2

Hey guys done some more work on the bust, the skin is almost done just a few areas to sort out (like the ears) and then on to the beard, i was thinking a grey beard as he has old wrinkly skin that would fit best. sorry pics are not great i was taking a photo after every ''stage'' (although i dont like the idea of painting in stages) so i could do a photo album of transformation from grey resin to finished bust. why? why not!, hope you like it so far, would like to know what you guys think of it so far as facebook comments have been a bit thin on the ground.
more soon
peace out

Space wolf dreadnought & Golden demon space marines

Woz up guys. this was my entry for golden demon space marines that i worked on over 2 months for the contest I got nothing for it, not even a finalist that i thought was odd as the small number of entry's maybe 20 in total to the vehicle category, anyway lets not talk about golden demon judging  as its a conundrum at the best of times, painted in the classic eavy metal style, not a conscious decision just the way the vibe took me at the time.

It was a fun day at least i enjoyed myself and was good to catch up with other painters I've not seen for a while. i liked the way the staff took away your model to be placed in the cabinet from a large table at the side. instead of the trying to hand your mini over the barriers with other people/boxes/elbows argh! a better system i thought.

The single model category was by far the largest amount of entry's as the normal GD and the other category's were alot less maybe 20-25 vehicle 15-20 squad and duel maybe 10? unbound category was very thin less that 10 entry's i would say. so personally i would have felt less pleased to win a demon from one of these very small category's but hey that's me. not to discredit anyone as the winners were very nice models. What i mean is i would have felt more pleased with myself to win a demon in a category where there was 100 entry's than 10 entry's, comprende !

so no demon for me but i did get a finalist pin in  space marine single model that was good as the large amount of entrants.

Not sure what i think of these small events maybe they will grow in time, but i had a good day thats the main thing.

peace out.
