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 ...

Wyrmgear the Clockwork Dragon

Wyrmgear the Clockwork Dragon
This has been one of the most popular minis to come out of Reaper’s first Bones Kickstarter. I must admit, the idea of a steampunk robot dragon definitely has its appeal, and the combined efforts of Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi definitely pulled it off. I was super happy when a client requested him. There ...

Greyscale Inquisitor and Retinue

Greyscale Inquisitor and Retinue
Here is a group that I got to paint up recently. The concept for this project was to do them all in a greyscale except with just a touch of color (kind of like Sin City). I found that this technique gives me a massive amount of control over centers of interest. Simply adding the ...

Warrior of the Sun (male)

Warrior of the Sun (male)
Here is the second in the set of Warriors of the Sun. This time it is the male counterpart. I went with a fairly bright color pallet here, and again used some starscape effects on his clothing to give him a sort of Shadow Dancer feel. I was also quite happy to be able to ...
