Recent Commission Highlights: Deathwatch

Towards the end of last year, I took on a large commission project to paint up a Deathwatch army for Warhammer 40k, featuring a lot of conversion work and an ultra-gritty paint style. Here are a few highlights from the project:

Deathwatch Veteran Sergeants hailing from the Ultramarines, Black Templars and Space Wolves Chapters:

And a Blackshield, a brutal Marine whose origin has been lost to the ages:

That’s enough pics for now, but stay tuned to see more over the next couple of weeks.

With this job complete, I’m now available for more commission work, so if you like what you see and are interested in some of my work then please use the About page to get in touch, and check out the Gallery to see more.

Showcase: Sebastian Yarrick, The Old Man of Armageddon (40k)

As a follow-up to the Ghazkull I painted, I got hold of his arch-nemsis, Commissar Yarrick of the Armageddon Steel Legion. Like Ghazghull’s, I reckon this model is one of the most characterful that Games Workshop have produced, he’s got a great sense of defiance and stoic pride that complements the rage and momentum in Ghazghull perfectly!

Showcase: Ghazkull Thraka, Prophet of Da WAAAAGH (40k)

Today’s post takes a look at what is easily one of my top 10 Warhammer 40k models ever released, the mighty Ork Warboss Ghazkull Thraka. It may be a rather old model by now, but in my opinion it’s a true classic, full of menace and brutality. I gave him a larger base, power klaw and banner pole to bulk him up a bit, but other than that, kept the model stock as it’s just superb!

Showcase: Hawk Lords Librarian (40k)

Today’s showcase looks at a model I painted recently for a friend’s Hawk Lords Space Marine’s army, a Librarian from the Dark Vengeance starter set. The Hawk Lords’ unique scheme gave me a chance to paint some colours and tones I rarely get to use, notably the purple, and the cleaner style was a nice break from the gritty, weathered Marines I usually paint.

Showcase: Priest of Sigmar (Age of Sigmar)

Today’s showcase features another hero from my growing Age of Sigmar army, a Warrior Priest of Sigmar. The miniature itself is from a small Spanish company linked below, I recently bought several of their products and was highly impressed by the design strength and cast quality, so I don’t hesitate to recommend them!

Showcase: Freeguild General (Age of Sigmar)

Time for something different! I recently played a demo game of Age of Sigmar and thoroughly enjoyed the system, so much so that I immediately set about collecting a force of my own for the game. The first model painted for this force is the character on whom my narrative will centre, a hapless young Baron stranded on the wrong side of a Realmgate with only a few followers and no way home…

Showcase: Hush (Batman Miniatures Game)

Been heavy on the 40k here recently. so in the interests of doing something different, today’s showcase is Hush from the Knight Models Batman game, a stunning model of one of the most important Batman villains.

Showcase: Drenn Redblade (40k/Deathwatch Overkill)

Today’s showcase is taking a look at Drenn Redblade, one of the Deathwatch Space Marines from Games Workshop’s Deathwatch: Overkill board game. Drenn was the first of the set I painted, and still one of my favourites.

Plenty more Deathwatch to come soon! In the mean time, feel free to leave a comment below and check out the About page if you’re interested in a commission. Thanks for reading!

Showcase: Salamanders Ironsmith (Horus Heresy/Anvil Industries)

As a follow-up to my last post, featuring a Salamander Centurion for my Horus Heresy army, today’s showcase looks at the most recent addition to the force. So recent, in fact, that the model only arrived this morning!

The base for this conversion was The Blacksmith from model producer Anvil Industries (see the link at the bottom of the page, they do fantastic conversion parts and whole miniatures). While the model is technically a fantasy-themed piece, it dodn’t take much to turn him into something resembling a Space Marine out of his Power Armour.

You can find Anvil’s products here, and they are well worth checking out, the quality is superb and the prices very reasonable.

Showcase: Salamanders Centurion (Horus Heresy)

Today’s showcase takes a look at the last model completed for my Horus Heresy army, a Salamanders Legion Centurion (or Praetor) to lead the force. Wielding a broken sword, and wearing incomplete and damaged armour, he embodies the shattered, down but not out character of the whole army, and definitely makes a fitting centrepiece for the force, I think.
