A very cool assortment of models all in one box. In the end I spent about 50 hours on this project, and although it wasn't a total bore, I'm glad to see it completed. Now I can focus on more single miniature projects, taking the same amount of time spent on fifty models and putting it into one :) Fortune telling aside here is the completed set. Enjoy!

The fallen badboy himself, Cypher. I like the archaic look of his armor and the gunslinger thing is also kinda rare in the 40K universe. So I wanted to capture some of that brooding anti-hero atmosphere and I also have a limited amount of time as its a mid level quality paintjob. By keeping a simple recipe I'm able to maximize the time I spent on him and just concentrate on black and red for the most part.
For today's musical selection I've been enjoying some dirty rock n roll, Check out Dirty Fences

This one was a lot of fun, the perfect set up for some widespread OSL. A great sculpt as well, some folks balk at some of Privater Press's sculpts but the troll range is pretty solid.

This one is a little more time consuming but pack a good amount of variety which I enjoy. The following pictures were taken over the last couple weeks. Fifty minis to crack into at once.
For the genestealer side I wanted to try something different and spent a little more time on the zenithal undercoat. Then I hit them with a coat of deep shader from the Army Painter line. For the skin I then mixed up some light ivory and painted on more textures. Taking some inspiration from the sketch style of painting I've been seeing lately.
This last picture was taken today. Just getting a head start on tomorrow's work :)

Continuing to roll out some finished pieces from this last month. This time it's Madrkak, Great Chieftan. This was painted to a nicer tabletop standard. Nothing too crazy but also a little extra attention because he's the leader after all.

Or TMX for short. Over this last weekend Adam and co of Tabletop Minions put on the first ever TMX. I was asked to teach some seminar style classes where people were free to walk up to the table as I explained a few chosen techniques.
The response was incredible. I felt I was right in my element talking paint at great length and fielding lots of questions. Thanks to everyone who attended those classes :)
This was the first time around so there weren't many expectations, just to enjoy some time nerding out. Demos abound, here are a few table shots.
Unfortunately I did get pictures of everything, I was in and out and keeping to my class and eating schedule. Shout out to Gaddis Gaming.
The princess of pustulence herself, the Blight Queen. This project was a lot of fun, I love painting and always say that but lately I've been trying to add more edge and feeling to my models.
Thanks for staying tuned, I've been so caught up in work lately I haven't had as much time to blog. Which is the very activity that brings me work, one of them at least. Funny how that works.
Stay tuned! I have some classes to announce in the near future :)
