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 ...

Kissing Gamers Cake Topper

Kissing Gamers Cake Topper
Here’s one more cake topper that I got to finish recently. I really find these toppers to be sweet. It’s nice to always have someone for special for co-op.

Exodite Farseer

Exodite Farseer
Here is a mini that I painted as part of a commission just a little while ago. The base mini is simply a Wood Elf sorceress with an Eldar weapon placed in her hand.

Wedding Cake Toppers ready for the Zombie Apocalypse

Wedding Cake Toppers ready for the Zombie Apocalypse
Here is another set of Zombie Survivor Wedding Cake toppers. This group has quite a bit going on. Most of these look like they’ve been fighting zombies in the mud and blood for a little while. And they’ve been picking some of the more favorite of zombie battling weaponry: Now, most of these toppers went ...

Warrior of the Sun

Warrior of the Sun
Here’s a great Kingdom Death mini that I got to paint up for a client a little while ago. She was splendid to paint, and made me rather fond of the KD line’s quality. The starscape was all done in normal freehand, but the warpaint/tattoos were actually following some lines in the sculpt. They were ...
