  • The Long Walk to Capital Palette Pt. 2: A Revival and my Nova Experience

    The Long Walk to Capital Palette Pt. 2: A Revival and my Nova Experience

    It has been a hot minute since I have written my last post here but rest assured that I am still alive and kicking. My last post here was about my plans and ambitions for the Capital Palette contest at the Nova Open and suffice to say I didn’t quite achieve what I set out […]

  • The Long Walk to Capital Palette Pt. 1: Research and Development

    The Long Walk to Capital Palette Pt. 1: Research and Development

    It’s a new year and as is customary for all minipainters on Instagram I hopped on the yearly bandwagon and made a collage post showing some of best pieces I did in 2021. After doing said bandwagon post I became aware of something almost immediately; everything I did in 2021 was a commission to paint […]

  • The Nova Albions Roll Out

    The Nova Albions Roll Out

    Amidst some intense Black Friday shopping to get gifts for family and friends I managed to scrounge enough time to finish the tanks for Nova Albions. And with all four tanks finished the Nova Albions can now roll out and a project almost 11 months in the making is now complete. But I am getting […]

  • Yo Ho A Pirate’s Life for Me

    Yo Ho A Pirate’s Life for Me

    Now that I am fully back into the minipainting swing of things I decided to take a little detour and work on a commission that a local D&D DM had given me to work on. I had done a previous job for him which was a pirate beholder that he seemed pleased with and thus […]

  • All Out War Pt.3: The Infantry Take To The Field

    All Out War Pt.3: The Infantry Take To The Field

    June was a pretty bad month for me as a kidney stone added a layer of pain and discomfort to everything I did. There were still a few days where I was able to get some meaningful hobby work done and after my medical malady had passed I was able to make a last ditch […]

  • Hobby Progress: Deredeo Dreadnought

    Hobby Progress: Deredeo Dreadnought

    So shortly before I finished the Invictor I completed my first Forgeword unit, the Deredeo Dreadnought with Anvilus Autocannon and Aiolos Missile Launcher (that’s a lot of dakka). This project was interesting because I decided to paint this unit in the colors of the Deathwing which is a paint scheme consisting of a bone colored […]

  • Hunt for the Jersey Devil Pt.2: Waylaid Plans and a Hunts End

    Hunt for the Jersey Devil  Pt.2: Waylaid Plans and a Hunts End

    So at Nova I was told of a fairly new painting competition called the Jersey Devil being held in Succasunna, New Jersey at Mythicos Studios. I was in a good mood after getting a gold medal at the Capital Palette I resolved to enter the Jersey Devil. I had planned to enter Joan, a flyer […]

  • WIP: Dark Talon

    WIP: Dark Talon

    So I’m still alive but only barely as Papa Nurgle has seen fit to bless me with a raspy throat and difficulty breathing. Nonetheless, I trudged forward and put a ton of work into the Ravenwing Dark Talon. Since the beginning of October I not only cleaned and assembled the Dark Talon I’m almost done […]

  • Hobby Progress: Ravenwing Talonmaster

    Hobby Progress: Ravenwing Talonmaster

    So I finished up the Ravenwing Talonmaster pretty quickly, in fact it was so much faster than my normal snail’s pace that I didn’t take any work in progress photos. However, that doesn’t mean I’m not not going to bore you with all the notes I have about this guy. So one of the biggest […]

  • WIP: Jump Pack Master Pt. 2

    WIP: Jump Pack Master Pt. 2

    A quick update on the this guy, he’s essentialy 95% finished. I just need to do the blends on the power axe to give it that power weapon feel. Other than that the only other thing I can do really is some more edge highlighting on various armor parts and maybe a little drybrushing on […]
