Farsight Returns with some friends...

One of the things I love about commission painting is that I feel like I get to do big kunst handwork without having to find room for it in my apartment. Another thing I love about it is getting client feedback. This is a collection of some of my work, amended with some additional Crisis Battle Suits from another painter (white armor with red accents). Anyway, the dude sent these in.

Its kinda neat to see how two different projects unintentionally fit together. As you can see it turned out rather well.


The feedback that is really neat  though is to see how the dude then converted a model, post-painting! I love the result! 


You can see the originals here and here
A massive improvement in my mind.

Tabletop Update - More Commission Work

Just some eye candy for you all. A set of 8 mournfangs that I have been working on for a client. I think after this commission, I'm going to do a commission for myself. TT quality, kick-ass army done in about 2 or 3 months. The running concept right now is something completely diverging from Tau fluff. I might actually make them humans in battlesuits. It's going to be something like a private special ops corporation. Think Blackwater in battlesuits.

A Break from Commission Work to Speed Paint a Mech

Lots of the work on this MechaFront model were done weeks ago with my airbrush. Last night, I decided to finish it up quickly. I spent about 45 minutes doing this work, then called it a night. I figured this would be good enough for the Tabletop.

I may have played around with the camera effects too much. Here's the original. 


Here is a scale shot for a FB commentator.

Fat Asses again!





Sometimes I really don't understand why anyone plays anything other than Ogres. These guys just scream warhammer to me. Big, brutal. They're like Orcs but better.

Broadside Conversion V2



Thought this was nearly a ruined model until I found some old Dreadnought parts...

3D Sketching with the Broadside Kit

Something has recently draw back into 40k and I am prepping a unit of Broadsides to add to my force...as well as a host of other things.

I broke out the broadside kit and realized I just cannot settle for the standard pose. The chest is just too wide...so here I am cutting and sawing to make a new build.

I can't decide if I want him holding a Paulson rifle in one hand...or I want to modify the railrifle so that it is more compact, and resembles something that could fire 4 twin-linked S7 Ap4 shots. I really cannot stand the missile packs for fists concept...
