I’m not one for painting up large armies for myself, especially not the horde variety, but the Tyranids are such a cool Xenos faction that I wanted to paint up a few regardless, and Kill Team is a great excuse to do so. I tried to stick with a lot of high points cost models…

Something a little different today. I’ve recently been trying to expand how I approach bases in my models, and I started a new project to help me push myself with that. I decided to start making some one-off bases, little dioramas of nature or a small environment. The first, but certainly not the last, is…

Something a little different today. Nicolás R. Giacondino is a well-known artist amongst the Warhammer/40k fandoms. He has a unique style and has some amazing works. During Inktober, he did an image of a ruined Necron obelisk. I was so drawn to the illustration that I decided to remake it in miniature form. I made…

I’ve been fond of the idea of making Space Marines feel more accurate to the lore of Warhammer 40,000 since around 2010. For those who don’t know, the Art Scale or True Scale Marines seen across the internet were an attempt by hobbyists to more accurately depict Space Marines as the 7-8ft tall superhuman warrior…

I’m happy to show off the leader of my Warband, Tor’vek of Nostramo. Armed with a daemon weapon and armored in a massive suit of terminator armor, he was a big conversion project. The legs are from the classic Obliterators, with the waist and belt made from multiple sessions of sculpting. The torso is made…

The new Chaos Space releases have me really excited about the faction, more so than I have been in a while. The new Chaos Marines look fantastic! I love the effort made to differentiate them more from the Space Marines of the Imperium with more daemonic visages and vicious weapons, and other accessories like the…

I started this project back in 2014, making almost 20 art scale marines to near completion using the methods I’d seen by Doghouse and lamenter. For those who don’t know, the art scale/true scale method was an idea to make Space Marines better proportioned and larger, to match the artwork and what had been described…

Well, I figure it’s been long enough since my Chronicle post to actually explain what that was all about. I’ve been gone from my blog for a while, just under a year now. I took a break from the hobby for about 8 months, once I’d finished the Space Hulk and White Metal Games commission. I…

While I’ve been hard at work finishing some current commissions (more on that at a later date), I’ve been making a little time to work on my own Carcharodons. I decided to break up the Tactical squad into two separate units. The first squad is equipped for close combat, meant to get stuck in. I…

A little while ago, I did a test mini for a Carcharodon force I wanted to make. I had a blast painting him, and decided that I would go with Carcharodons as my Art Scale army, not Ultramarines. I recideved the Badab War books from Forge World for Yule, which further cemented my choice. With…
