Beornings! I do love these choppy hipsters, always superstars on the table. I've now painted 30 of these, super crisp models, and a joy to paint.

Human form Beorn, I actually LOVE this model. It's such a shame it doesn't spend much time on the table before turning into bear form!

Painting the NMM axe blade was fun, I added some subtle greens, browns, and blues to simulate reflections for the trees and sky.

Big daddy bear Beorn! He is less shiny in real life after a change of varnish. I didn't like this model at first compared to Grimbeorn but it has certainly grown on me.

Human Form Grimbeorn! An absolute beast of a man/model. I've had such a great time playing with this army, I well and truly have the lord of the rings bug!

I finished up two Beorning armies over the last couple of weeks. I'm now the proud owner of a hipster bear army and here is the first monster- Grimbeorn!

These new forgeworld models and an absolute dream, I hope you like how they came out.

More classic Warhammer models on the painting table, Stormtroopers, and a classic Leman Russ. These are jam-packed full of detail and a challenge to paint in areas but I'm happy with how they came out!

Camoness!

This was painted for my clients Catachan army and was a nice challenge to paint large areas of camo. I'm happy with the result overall, I hope you like it.

Shadowsword/Stormsword. Painted for the previously completed Catachan army. This was a very fun project, the brief was to paint as though the top coat was fading/chipping and revealing the brown undercoat beneath. This one is called Cerberus and comes with an appropriate piece of freehand.

Part of the recent Catachan Army commission. I love the dark and muted tones that my client chose for this army and think it came together very nicely. I also need a bigger light tent because this is only around half of it!

We continue the break from the Imperium with a close up from the completed Monolith. I do love this new kit, The way the sections are connected with space in between gives the model amazing volume. Painting it is sections and piecing it together at the end was a real joy.

Jungle Fighters!

I quite enjoyed the simple military colours for these guys. Another old kit, but full of character and I can't help but enjoy painting them. I must have painted over 100 by now!

Good One for my clients' Catachan army that I recently completed. For resin models, these were an absolute dream to paint up, the casting quality is amazing.

A nice chunky mob of Bullgryn I completed a while back for the Catachan army, it's Catachan month for me here in the studio with plenty more on the way from a new army!

A unit of Saurus Guard, painted to my 'tabletop level'. Fun models for an older kit, I think they still hold up well. There are so many trinkets and details to paint though so patience is a must!

Wow. I was scrolling and loving everything. Your lack of a nexromunda gang (I didn’t see one) is disappointing. You should or show us a nexromunda gang you have painted.
