Blackshield Commander El Cid.

It is a basilisk unto mine eye,  Kills me to look on’t.  Dramaturge Shakespire. The Age of Darkness (approx. 004.M31 – 014.M31) spawned many terrors to the universe. The nascent Imperium convulsed in the fires of the Horus Heresy, emptying vast resources of munitions, manpower, archeotech, and most vitally – Astartes. It became apparently early on that…

Valentus Dolor, Tetrach of Ultramar. Commission

To take a town, send a legionary. To take a city, send a squad. To take a world, send a company. To take a culture, send a Chapter. Popular Ultramarine aphorism. Commissions like this rarely come around. This piece was created alongside four other Tetrarch models to represent the upper command structure of the XIIIth…

Abaddon the Despoiler, Warmaster of Chaos. Commission

“From Shame and Shadow recast, in Black and Gold reborn” Black Legion mantra. There are few characters who are as important Warhammer lore as Abaddon. He has been through several iterations, from the greatest threat to the Imperium to the ineffective armless general moniker meme culture bridled him with. Abaddon stands at the top of…

Towering edifices resplendent with the IXth gilded artifice, these coffin wombs aid in the optimisation of the incumbent’s inner chemistry, purifying the blood, aiding in the regeneration of old wounds. It is little…

Anacharis Scoria, the Xanophane. Commission.

Anacharis Scoria, The Xanophane Tyrant,the Fallen Master, Lord of the Nine Cohorts, and The Apostate Magister. He of many, endless names. This is an incredibly testing miniature to paint. There are lots of details, with a small central focus. It’s easy to lose the face in the cluster of detail demanding your attention. The magenta under glow…

Mortarion, Primarch of the Deathguard. The Reaper, Commission.

We are all tyrants. Do not fool yourself. We were bred for nothing else. Mortarion the Reaper. Mortarion is a quixotic figure. Black Library fiction is at its best when investigating the discrepancies that have been thrown up throughout the years, rather than try to heal them. Mortarion reviles the Warp and any magic-user. He…

Deathguard Fellglaive Commission

The Deathuguard are wonderful, aren’t they? They allow you to try every weathering technique the lord made, all on the same vehicle! This piece was a testbed for the Weathering Masterclass series to show how to create these effects on a large surface. The series will expand to encompass all original legions with the subtle…
