Silver Tower

Oh my gosh, what a great box. You could really tell that a lot of the sculpts had the painter in mind. Like the Gaunt Wizard:

Silver Tower WIP

I am loving the GW Silver Tower box. The models are all very nicely sculpted and relatively painter friendly. Plus it's a nice subject for using some fun colors like purple, auquamarine, and primary blue.

The Gaunt Wizard and the Ogrin Chaos Priest were particularly fun. I made some custom bases out of plasticard and embossed 'cobblestone' plasticard, Check it out:

Catching up with a ton of photos!

I know, it's been a while.

The commission painting has really taken off and I think I have hit my stride. I was originally thinking that I would be able to go full time commission painter, but as you may know from experience, painting mini's actually takes a lot of time.

Which is why I haven't been posting here on my WIP on CMON. I have been painting a ton of other peoples stuff. Mostly GW's 40k Adeptus Mechanicus, Check it out:

Flames of the Forsaken: Dark Age's Prometheus 3/3 Painting with Inks and Washes

Flames of the Forsaken: Dark Age's Prometheus 2/3 How-To Zenithal Prime, The Flashlight of the Gods!

Here is a quick how-to on zenithal priming. Zenithal priming is great way to quickly map out shadows on your miniature. If you have a light touch with your paints the shadows you create with this step will show through on your finished project and if you tend towards heavier paint zenithal priming will give you a quick guide for placing your shadows and highlights.  

Zenithal priming is a great technique to use no matter what your skill level. Basically this is how it's done:

Flames of the Forsaken: Dark Age's Prometheus 1/3 Assembly and Base Building

I am working on a really cool new project, Prometheus from Dark Age's Forsaken faction. It's a painting commission with a really cool twist, I get to paint him up however I want, but I have to do a step by step so my client can follow along at home. He's is going to paint another of St Isaac's Forsaken heavies, Ajax.

Both models are big robots with a lot of texture. They're cast in resin, which is great and both have bipedal man-like shapes. The box art for Prometheus is pretty sweet:

Knitting the Soul Weaver: Warmachine's Deneghra 5/5: Finished Gallery

Whoa, this month has flown by! I am happy to say that Denny made it safely to her new home in the frozen wastes of Norway where she will frolic with vikings (reindeer?) and death jacks. Thanks Ole!

Here are some completed photos:
