Austrican the Ogre

Austrican the Ogre
Here is my Austrican from Relic Knights. The largest of the Shattered Sword Paladins, this mini was definitely one of my favorites from the Kickstarter. I had a lot of fun with his face- the harsh lines gave me plenty of room to make high contrast areas that really pop. He really has the same ...

MMO Cake Topper

MMO Cake Topper
Here is a cake topper that I made to match some MMO characters. These make some of the more complex characters I’ve created, as video games tend to have lots of detail on their clothing and weaponry. And I love making the elf ears. Here is a picture.

Nethyrmaul the Undying

Nethyrmaul the Undying
This might be my favorite mini to come out of the first of Reaper’s Kickstarters (he does have to compete with the likes of Wyrmgear and a few other beauties). I decided to color him in green to help emphasize the red portions on him. I don’t think it shows in the pictures, but the ...

Converted Iron Kingdoms RPG Party

Converted Iron Kingdoms RPG Party
So, I’m a miniatures guy, and I have a weekly RPG group. I generally love converting minis for our whole party. I don’t always get to do the whole thing, because there are other players who also love to convert and paint minis. This time around, however, I got to do a mini for each ...

Dragon Slayers Wedding Cake Topper

Dragon Slayers Wedding Cake Topper
I had a couple contact me and ask me to make the two of them into fantasy RPG characters for a cake topper. That sounded great to me, so I was all kinds of on board. Then they added- and we want to fight a dragon as well. Now, Cake Toppers aren’t the same scale ...

Chibi Centaur

Chibi Centaur
This is one of the Chibi miniatures that Impact! Miniatures has been making of late. This is one of the earlier ones that they made. One interesting thing I discovered while at Gencon this year- Trollforge (the guys responsible for casting these minis) has been upping their quality quite a bit. The newer castings have ...

Gencon 2014 miniatures roundup

Gencon 2014 miniatures roundup
Well, there were loads of cool minis to see at Gencon this year. Here’s a selection of a few of the highlights I got to see. Corvus Belli were there this year to show off the new edition of Infinity. They’re still as dedicated as ever to releasing the full rules online, but I’m sure ...

Studio McVey shows off Plastics for The Others

Studio McVey shows off Plastics for The Others
Ok, one does not simply summarize Gencon. There’s just way too much going on, and no one person who went actually got to see it all. Not even close. But I’ll make a few posts for a few of my highlights. I got to talk to Mike McVey about what they’ve been up to. currently ...

Dueling Jedi Diorama

Dueling Jedi Diorama
Here’s another piece that I painted for Gencon’s competition. Last year, I got to meet with sculptor Jeff Grace (who was working on a cool mini for Dark Sword at the time). We talked a little, and got on the subject of Star Wars, and how to turn his current sculpt into a Sith (we ...

Gencon Masterclass 2nd Place Single

Gencon Masterclass 2nd Place Single
I’m back from Gencon, and it was quite a cool year. I’ll need a number of updates to talk about all of it, but here’s something to kick it off. This year, I put a lot of effort into getting some good entries out for Gencon’s Masterclass painting competition- especially for my Dark Sword entry ...
