Leman Russ, The Wolf King, The Executioner, Lord of Winter and War. Primarch Commission

The lion snorted. ‘You treat all as a game. That is why they sent for me – Malcador cannot trust you.’ Leman Russ Chris Wraight I’ve been privileged to paint this miniature several times before.

Ultramarine Contemptor Dreadnought Commissions

Even in death I serve. Rite of awakening – canticle 3:44 I love a dreadnought. All varieties, all types. The idea of entombing a veteran in a coffin with war crime-level weaponry stirs the blood. These pieces form a much larger Ultramarine commission. Hell, I believe the client can even field an all dreadnought contingent…

Space Wolf Mastodon Commission: The Howl of Yarrant.

Full magnetised Legio Praesagius Warhounds. Ready to tear up the tabletop when lockdown ends!

Legio Praesagius Reaver Titans. Titanicus Commission.

The entire Titanicus range is a thing of wonder. They feel more like miniature scale models rather than the heroic scale miniatures Games Workshop main produces. They offer us a wonderful opportunity to practice weathering techniques on a whole new scale! The titans of Legio Praesagius were all but wiped out during the Age of…
