Blood Angels Contemptor- Incaendius Class Dreadnought Commission.

The Incaendius Dreadnought has to be one of the craziest concepts to come out of the Forge World team for a while. It is a dreadnought that is armed with a JUMP PACK! That can jump from low orbit into battle. What the hell? I have painted two of these as part of a larger…

Sigismund. The Emperor’s Champion Commission

Standing on the battlements of Terra, Sigismund was charged with the forlorn hope. He was to meet in battle and vanquish any enemy command personnel. Lords, Warlords, chieftains, the demonically warped remnants of those he once called cousin, the Black Templar became unto death itself. My earliest memory of Sigismund was a short story in…

The Last Phoenix, Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor’s Children. Commission.

Sagnuinius The Great Angel

Lord of Angels, Sanguinius, Priamrch of the IXth. I’ve been waiting to paint this piece since I read the Angels of Death Codex since I was 9 years old! This miniature is nothing short of a masterpiece. Pictures I’ve seen online haven’t done the sculpt justice (and I doubt these will either). It’s is so…

Mongol Bust; A Reflection.

Sculpted by the legendary Greeny ‘Ahn’ this bust has terrified me for nearly 2 years. It’s something that I felt like I had to build a new skill set for, more so than any other previous bust I have painted. My love for early Mongol culture was sparked by the excellent podcast series by Hardcore…
