Tawa Some very nice work there. I'd be pretty chuffed if they dropped through my letterbox

Kreuger Hey, welcome back!

I had wondered where you'd gotten off to over the last few years.

I think those gatormen are wretched models, but you clearly made the best of them. But at least the gatormen photos are crystal clear. ;)

I'm back!!!

Well all I know that it has been forever and a day since I have posted anything what-so-ever to any of my project logs and the reason for that is quite simple..... I haven't really been doing much. I have been sporadically working a bit of commission work here and there, but my personal projects seem to have fallen by the wayside with my growing disenchantment with Games Workshop. However, recently the bug has struck me once again to jump back into commission work with both feet and the guy who I was working on this massive project for has been keen to continue sending me models.

So what have I been doing, well I have some finished shots of things that I have been working on, and most importantly I have in progress shots of The Stormwall that is in the works. The last block of models I sent my client consisted of:

Captain Damiano:




Ashlynn D'Elyse:




Kayazy Eliminators:



Swamp Horror:






Gatorman Witchdoctors:















As you can see my photography skills haven't really gotten any better......... But I digress.

At the current moment I am working on a Stormwall Colossal as part of this commission. I spent quite a bit of time working on the base for this bad boy. It has always been my position that the larger and more impressive the model is the more impressive the base needs to be to maintain a sense of balance. Here is where I am on the piece so far:





As always I welcome constructive criticism and critique so don't hesitate to throw something out there as a suggestion if you see something. I am hoping that by returning to the boards here I can get the motivation that I need to knock out a bunch of pieces.

For those of you that have frequented my logs in the past I welcome you back and I hope that you and yours have been well, for the new folk welcome aboard.

Thanks elmir! I am most pleased with the way that his face came out. Faces can be such a bear, but I think that these last couple have really turned out well.

Well I did it, I finally finished off a block of models for this commission that seems to just keep on going, not that I have any complaints. I finished off Caitlin Finch this afternoon:





I wanted to get a shot of her with Nemo as well:



I think that they look great as a pair!

Finally I thought it would be good to get a nice shot of all the Cygnar stuff that I have been working on the last couple of months before I send this stuff off to the client.



Next up on the list are a couple of pairs of Kayazy Eliminators. Look for progress shots of them to crop up soon.

As always comments and critiques are most welcome.

Midge913 I have been working on getting Caitlin Finch done and I am pleased to say that I have made some excellent progress from the last pic of her. Still quite a bit to do on the upper body, including of course, her arms and staff, but I think all in all she is coming along nicely:






Comments and critiques welcome.

Thanks buddy! your comments are much appreciated!

Well after a 14 hour marathon painting session today I finished off Nemo. I am really happy with how he came out in the end and I am once more finding that I absolutely adore the Warmachine sculpts. Anywho, not much else to say other than I am hoping to jump in on Finch tomorrow. Onto the pics:

Midge913 Well I am back at it again! Sorting out a good hobby schedule around my new work schedule has been challenging to say the least, but over the last several days, mostly today, I was able to sit back down to the painting desk and really get a nice chunk of work done on Nemo & Finch. I will start with the photos and talk a little about them after:

Nemo





Finch





Even though I have complained in the past about the overwhelming amount of blue that I have had to paint during the course of this commission, when I get a hold of models like these I really do enjoy painting them. The Cygnar scheme really is a joy to paint and I think that after all this time I am really getting the hang of painting it.

There is still quite a bit to do on both of them, Finch more so than Nemo, but I think that they are progressing along nicely. I really wanted to spend a lot of time on the white cloth aspects of both of them. I wanted to make sure that the white came out with a nice amount of depth. I think that it came out really nicely. I may go back and clean up a few of the blends, little things that I noticed in the photos, but for the most part I think the white is done.

I am hoping that I am going to get another couple of sessions in over the weekend as I would really like to get this big batch of stuff sent out to the client by the end of next week.

Comments and critiques are most welcome as always.
