After a very busy couple of weeks, my Iron Painter 2018 Round 4 entry is complete! The theme this round was “Lowdown and Dirty.” I immediately jumped on the idea that it would be a lot of fun to paint up the Gremlin “Wrastlers” and Mancha Roja having a mud wrestling match in the Bayou and I wanted to try my hand at a diorama with a cutaway view of water again; I certainly learned from the mistakes I made with my first try with this style of diorama in my round 2 entry last year (I got the math right this time and didn’t end up needing five times as much resin as I thought I would!). I tried out a technique that was new to me to create splashes in the water and I am very pleased with how it turned out. Now I must wait for judgment to see if I survive another round in the Silver Tier to face one last Challenger for glory in the final round!

Since I’m more on top of things this time around and I haven’t shared this here yet, I figured I ought to post my Iron Painter 2018 round 3 entry. The theme this round was “Monster Mash”; this entry was challenging, but so much fun to do! I based the paintings on the wall off of the original image of Ferdinand Vogel from the Divergent Paths campaign, way back when he first arrived in Malifaux and before all of the events occurred that made him the man (or monster) he is today. The two framed paintings were entirely freehand painted. I made the wallpaper by creating a vector pattern in Illustrator, which I glued to the wall and then painted over to give it depth. I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it! I ended up winning my match-up and continue to fight on in the Silver Tier!

It has been far too long since I have posted anything here; I blame the craziness that has been life lately. Anyway, I will hopefully once again be getting back to a regular posting schedule and what better time of year to do it that right at Gen Con season! I’ll be making my annual pilgrimage to Gen Con in a few short days, so follow along here to join in the fun! I’ve also been painting a few things to get ready for Gen Con. (more…)

I do a Podcast now!

Posted: February 5, 2018 in Malifaux

I’ve mentioned it briefly before, but it never hurts to mention it again. For the past couple of months I’ve been hosting and producing a Malifaux podcast; in this podcast we talk tactics, hobby, and news for the fantastic tabletop game Malifaux. I’m really happy with how the podcast has been so far and the direction it’s been heading.
You should check it out!

Even though I’m a bit ahead of the curve on my 2018 hobby goal of painting 1 model per week, I am still pushing myself to keep up the pace. Over the last week, I finally got around to finishing off Barbaros!

For those of you who don’t know, a few months ago I began hosting a bi-weekly Malifaux podcast with the other Admins from the A Wyrd Place Facebook group. In our first episode of the New Year, we all made some hobby resolutions for 2018 to try to get us all painting more; in this episode I committed to the Model Per Week Challenge in which I would complete 1 model per week for the entirety of 2018 so that at the end I would have painted at least 52 models. Part of the conditions of this challenge is that these models are to be for my own use on the table and that they can’t include miniatures painted for competitions or commissions. Along with the doing the Model Per Week Challenge I’m aiming to have completed at least 365 soulstones worth of models by years’ end. As I haven’t been posting here as often as I used to, I figure this is also a good time to get back to posting on a regular basis. (more…)

In 2017 a crack Malifaux unit was sent to my painting table by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security figure case to the Malifaux underground. Today, still wanted by the Guild, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire: The Freikorps.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No wait, it’s coming right for us and it’s got claws!!! (more…)

WiP Wed 2/15

Greetings fellow hobbyists! It’s Work in Progress Wednesday, so it’s time to share what’s been on your hobby table this week!

I’ve been working on clearing some commission projects off of my hobby desk. I did some work on the final detailing and assembly on Sigismund and got started on the Von Schill crew you see above.

While it’s not specifically WiP from this week I have some super exciting news to share with you all. This weekend I’ll be heading up to Dallas to take a 2-day airbrush class with the wonderful Caleb and Kat from CK Studios! It’s going to be awesome to see some of my scattered hobby friends again and I’m really looking forward to learning a lot in this class. I’ll definitely have some pictures from that to share with you after this weekend.

What have you been working on?

Wednesday is upon us, which means it’s time for all good hobbyists to share what’s been on their hobby table this week–it’s Work in Progress Wednesday!!!

This week I finally got started on final assembly and touch-ups on the Sigismund commission I’ve been doing for a friend. I also primed up a Von Schill crew I’m painting on commission for another friend. Last and certainly not least, I sculpted a poncho to go on a friend’s Peacekeeper; my friend usually runs Pedro (as the Peacekeeper is known) with his Perdita crew and tends to use Abuela to marry him into the family, hence why he needed the poncho and sombrero.

Before next week I will hopefully have a few more models finished up to share with you all, so keep your eyes peeled for those!

What have you been working on?
