The Butcher of Jharl: World Eater Khorne Lord Conversion showcase.

Once you go on the Fenrypian Forge Facebook page, kiss goodbye to the rest of your afternoon. It’s a wonderful place full of madcap conversions, wonderfully detailed kitbashes and some outrageous use of parts. The characters he crafts are works of art, and it was with some delight I painted one of his pieces in…

Welcome to the spotlight series! This is a space to showcase some of the best miniatures collections in the world. I’m delighted to bring David Gec’s developing Deathguard project for the #returntoisstvan challenge. Take it away David! I have always been tempted by The Death Guard. I didn’t know much about their lore, but something…

Return to Isstvan. Phase 2.

The deadline has elapsed. The challenge is over. The dust has settled. Well, that’s what I thought. It seems if you roll a snow ball down a mountain, sometimes, it keeps on rolling. We never thought it would develop into an avalanche. The start of 2021 saw an explosion of new armies being pledged, new…

Cypher, Lord of the Fallen. Dark Angels Fallen Commission piece.

“Truth made you a traitor as it often does in a time of scoundrels.” Lillian Hellman Cypher, the enigmatic Lord of the Fallen, has been a figure of dread hope since his introduction into the lore. The original miniature blew me away when I first saw it in White Dwarf. The new plastic one took…

Dominion Zephon, The Bringer of Sorrow. Personal Piece.

If you’ve followed me for any sort of time you know that I’m a sucker for two things. 90’s era Blood Angels NOSTALGIA. It’s part of the reason why I still paint miniatures. It triggers the same happy receptors in the brain that fired when I was a kid. Most kids have Luke Skywalker. Others…

John has walked the path of glory and has completed a wonderful Emperor’s Children Force. Take it away John! So you, Cambria Synod and David Braines at the 30k channel inspired me to participate.

Shadowkeepers Telemon Dreadnought Commission.

There are no bystanders in the war of life and death, no place the battle cannot reach; so fight it without remorse or relenting, for death will surely do the same. Valdor. A piece completed for a much larger Custodes Commission. A fascinating miniature that you can do so much with. The Black armour was…

AAAAAnd that’s a wrap for 2020! Merry Christmas everyone!

I’m proud to be part of a species that can ride out a global pandemic with Tiger King, and end it with The Queen’s Gambit. This year. THIS YEAR. God damn it’s been a tough one. I’ve had friends lose jobs, start new businesses, and do food raids on local supermarkets. Who knew all those…

Brushes, Not printers: Miniature Painters brush guide 2020.

I had to bin off the printer I bought. It was too low a spec, and I was talked into upgrading by the same sellers. It’s sitting in a box behind me, opened but nothing removed. It looks bare, vulnerable to an uncaring universe. That’s the pebble slipping off the mountain that caused the landslide…
