Middle Earth SBG – Heroes of Rohan

A commission I was working on last year for a host of characters, beginning with some of Rohans finest.

First up is the new Eowyn & Merry set. Games Workshop is knocking it out the park with thier plastic characters and these are no exception. The detail and dynamism is phenomenal.

Deorwine and Elfhelm are again some phenomenal models. Elfhelm in particular has a fantastic pose, the momentum carried through him and his horse, with the throw poised to release. Really one of my alltime favourite models.

Finally we have the bearer of the royal standard, Gamling. This is an old school metal miniature and it does show. Whilst i enjoyed this figure for the most part the banner was hell. It’s really hard to paint patterns in such a wavy area and sometimes the texture of the metal can be a little funny. I just hope that it still looks suitably impressive.

Next up is a wee bit more Rohan and a fair chunk of Mordor…

Star Wars – Spectre Cell

A recent commission involving the stars of Rebels, the crew of the Ghost, Spectre Cell.

Always a fan of Star Wars projects, especially consisting of so many awesome characters. I worked with the Imperial Assault minis for the most part, with the Legion Sabine being the only alt model.

Took a lot of scouring reference pictures, but I’m very happy with the way they turned out…

Middle Earth SBG – Iron Hills Dwarf Army Commission

I’ve been working on and off on these guys for a while now and it was finally time to pull everything together and add the final touches.

I’m happy with the result, especially the purple and the bases, a great way to tie everything together, that was requested by the client.

Middle Earth SBG – Pellanor Fields Painting in Progress

This month I’ve been furioursly painting away at the Lord of the Rings: Battle ofthe Pellanor Fields box set, and I’vejust about finished 80 or so of them…

The Morannon orcs and Army of the Dead are complete and the Rohan forces only have a little more work to be done on them.

I’m pleasantly surprised by what are some fairly old sculpts. The Rohan in particular are fairly simple, but are still very characterful.

A Month in Pictures – March 2019

55 models this month! Trippling the total so far.

I’ve been in deep with the painting this month working on a lot of commissions but also finding the time for a few of my own wee projects along the way. It’s also a month were I have tackled a variety of ranges, Harry Potter from Knight Models, Guild Ball from Steamforged, a Beholder from Wizkids and Necromunda as well as Lord of the Rings from Games Workshop.

This gives me a stiff target for next month, but I do have a job coming up that will help tremendously.

Models Painted: 55

Model Total: 75

A Month in Pictures – February 2018

The second month roles by and it seems to be the month of franchises, with Star Wars, Dr. Who and Batman all being represented.

I’m happy with the progress I made this month. Nothing to really challenge myself, or an attempt at a new technique though, so I need to ensure I pursue this in March.

Let’s take a look at all of the models I painted this month…

Painted in February: 22

Total painted in 2018: 39

 

A Month in Pictures – January 2018

So the new year has arrived and I wanted to add a wee progress marker to the blog each month, so I can take stock of how much mini’s I actually get through in a year. It’s also so I can track my progress, particularly in regards to the hobby goals I’m giving myself(more on that another time), and see how far I can push myself.

Let’s take a look at all of the models I painted this month…

Painted Model Count: 17

Total to Date: 17

Guild Ball – Alchemists New Recruits!

group

As a continuation of my previous Guild Ball Alchemist commission the client was after a few new players painted up to join the team, including a few of the new season 2 players. Take a look at how Smok, Venin and Naja turned out below…

Whilst those season 2 players are absolutely gorgeous miniatures, the job also required a couple of Union players but with a difference. The client wanted the Union players to fit in with the team whilst also having a wee nod to their origins. It took a wee while to cement a good idea of how to achieve this in my head, but I think what i came up with works quite well…

Overall I’m really chuffed with how they turned out, and like all the Guild Ball minis I’ve tackled so far, they have been a pleasure to paint. Eventually I’ll get stuck into my own team, eventually…
