Orion, The King in the Woods

I entered Orion into Golden Demon 2014 but unfortunately it didn't reach the finals. There is a quite a few factors that I believe let it down. My conversion work was a little off, the left shoulder was a bit too pointed and noticeably higher than the right. His left arm looks a little disjointed from behind and also his left thumb is huge. If I had had more time I would of completely re-sculpted the entire left arm. The cloak of leaves I believe aren't well sculpted either, again I think I would of done a completely new cloak, maybe just a smooth one.

With the painting I'm not sure I would of done too much different except not rush it as much. The only part I wasn't happy with was the leave cloak which I couldn't get right but they were hard to distinguish where each leave began and ended.

For next years Golden Demon I'll be working on my entries all year but first I'm entering Salute in the UK on the 25th of April 2015.

Commission news

Hi everyone,
I am currently taking on commissions again so if you or someone you know would like something painted and would like me to paint it let me know.
Four weeks ago my daughter was born so I can't take on anything too big and while I will do all I can to get jobs finished as fast as possible some patience may be needed but I will keep in touch the whole time to let you know of progress.
Feel free to look at my work on this blog or on my Facebook page which is
If you have any questions just message me and I will reply as soon as I can.


Retribution of Scyrah

I recently picked up the start of my Retribution of Scyrah army for Warmachine. I chose Retribution purely for the miniatures. Personally I think they have some of the best looking miniatures in Warmachine, I'm even beginning to like their Jacks which I wasn't too sure on at first.
I decided to shy away from the Studio white and green colour scheme as I felt I wanted something more unique to help them stand out so I chose an orangy red for the armour and a burgundy and deep purple for the cloth with gold and silver details and blue glow.
They were very enjoyable to paint. I didn't get distracted by other projects while working on them. I'm looking forward to getting more Scyrah in the future, hopefully a couple of Jacks and at least one unit.

Other Golden Demon UK 2013 entries

My other two entries to Golden Demon UK 2013 are Gollum and the Forge World show only Skin Wolf.
Gollum was a finalist but unfortunately the Skin Wolf didn't make the cut.
I did a bit of experimenting with both of them. On Gollum I used some ready mixed water effects from Vallejo. It didn't quite turn out as nice as I hoped but I was still happy with the result.
With the Skin Wolf I wanted it to be quite gory so I made some dripping gore using Uhu glue simply by stretching it from one part of the model to another then painting it with a mix of 70% red ink, 10% brown ink and 10% gloss varnish. I'm happy with how it turned out.
If you'd like to know any more just let me know.

My Bronze winning Golden Demon UK 2013 entry

Hi everyone. Going back to last year I went to Games Day UK on the 29th September 2013. It was a brilliant day made better by less people being there. I got to see more. The main reason I go is to enter Golden Demon. I had three entries for this one. Luckily I won my first Demon, a Bronze in the duel category. Here's some photos of my entry. If you would like to know anything about it let me know. My other entries will be in another post.

Minis of the past.

Here are some pictures of some old paint jobs I did.

Golden Demon UK

So it's just over two weeks to go until Golden Demon UK and my entries are coming along nicely.

One is fully completed, one just needs some water effect put on the base then it's finished and my last one is on schedule to be complete on time, as long as I don't get any distractions.

I will make sure I post pics of them straight after Golden Demon. For now I don't want to give anything away ;)

Made it onto Games Workshops White Dwarf Daily

Way back in February I made it onto the Games Workshop website on their White Dwarf Daily blog. I had bumped into Dan Harden near the end of 2011 while at Warhammer World and he took some pics of some of the miniatures I had with me.

Here is the link to it :

Ghorros Warhoof Golden Demon UK 2012 finalist

This was my entry for Golden Demon 2012 in the UK. It got into the finals but unfortunately got broke at his (it's) wrist because I forgot to secure it to my display plinth. :S


It's been quite a while since I've posted anything on here mainly due to life getting in the way but I am now going to try and keep this Blog up to date at least once a week if I can.

Please feel free to share my blog with anyone you know.

With the UK Golden Demon on the way in just three weeks I have been heavily concentrating on my entries which of course I'm keeping secret until the day but for now I will show off my miniature which got into the finals last year.

Skaven army

Ok so I seem to have a problem of jumping from project to project at the moment. So while I'm waiting to get my new Hordes and Warmachine bits next weekend I've decided to continue with some Skaven I started a while ago. I always love painting Skaven and I've painted a few characters in past which are shown below. I will keep up to date with how the army comes along.

I really miss both these models but unfortunately I sold them.

Tuesday, 1 May 2012


I've been planning to redo my old Eldar armies so thought I would put up some pics of a few I sold last year.

I miss this Bonesinger but I do have another one which will be the Farseer in my new army.

I'm going to be doing both Eldar and Dark Eldar. Pics of the new armies will follow as I get the models done.

Cryx warband getting there

Okay my two Deathrippers and Defiler are finished so here they are including a group shot with the Slayer. I need to pick up a Warcaster due to losing the head of Deneghra.
