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. I had enough distance from the miniature to feel invigorated when this piece was commissioned. A colder palette is always…

Indomitus Necron Lord Commission.

Cast off the shackles of your slumber! The galaxy shall be ours once again! Tranlasted transmission. One of the more striking models from the Indomitus boxed set, the Lord is a great opportunity to stretch your skills.

Ultramarines Locutarus Assault Squad Commission
