hello everyone,

well i've finally gotten back into painting and modeling and well,...the hobby in general.

this log will be dedicated to everything i'm working on, and as it stands a bnch of stuff ive finished within the last half year or so. I've been quite idle this past year. I intend to change that.

so everything will be crammed into this thread... modeling, painting and terrain.

thank you in advance for checking it out, and any constructive criticism is very much welcome. I never stop learning new techniques and skills in this hobby and im sure you all have some good tips.

on to some mini's shall we???

one note of apology: im using a casio 7.2 MP exilim. I usually use it for everyday picture taking, but since i currently dont have another camera im using it for these mini pictures. Its not the best and it definitely doesnt do the mini's justice unfortunately. but you make do with what you have.

first ill post up the mini's im working on for my inquisitor retinue. Im trying to make each mini as full of character and individual as i can, while maintaining a subtle unit coherency. Notice the repeating symbol in freehand.

inquisitor soloman lok



an older conversion i did of commissar yarrick for my steel legion force.

some more shots of yarrick, obviously with a very good camera.

i might retake the pictures of soloman lok with this same camera that a member of my family has to show the layers and brightness of colors.

anyway for now...



a conversion of chaplain xavier i did recently. almost done. WIP as of now. just need to figure out what i want to do for the banner and then base him up.


again the camera does this mini no justice. ugh. the bone color on the armor has a pearl like sheen to it. the camera flattened it out. will def be posting up better pics of some of these dudes shortly.

lastly for today, some "stormtroopers" on speeders. I really enjoyed converting these guys.

Also, that Yarrick conversion is awesome!
