Hey all, I’ve been cataloging all my work on my DeepWars stuff and it occurs to me that I’ve put a lot of time and passion into this aspect of the hobby. I do truly love the aesthetic of the Abyssal Realms and the DeepWars and ShadowSea world, so I thought I’d take some time to get some really nice pictures of some of the work I’ve done. Check out the pics below and let me know what you think. Thanks for looking and enjoy!

Adepticon 2018 Doubles Event Display Board

March 28, 2018 Posted by cranky




The planning for Adepticon 2018 Horus Heresy event was more than a year in the making for my doubles team partner Paul and I, and we had a great time putting the dream into reality for our Word Bearers & Malinax display board for the event. Having just come off of LVO 2017, and looking for our next project for 2017 / 2018, we landed on Word Bearers armies with House Malinax allies for our next big project. A lot of work went into the planning and execution over the course of the year. The project got underway in March of 2017 and in 2018 we landed in Schaumburg to play in the doubles tournament!

Check out our latest battle report from the Abyssal Realms! In this battle report, we pit the Draconid Legion vs. the Axibalan Empire, in a jungle-river inspired custom terrain board. The Draconids were created ages ago by their Axibalan masters with dark magic. They were cast out of the Empire, and are hunted down by their former masters. Will the Draconids take their bloody revenge, or will they be exterminated by the Axibalans? Tune in to find out!

Commission Khanjira Dragon!

January 30, 2018 Posted by cranky



I was asked by a good friend to paint a dragon miniature for his D&D campaign master before the holiday break, and I just got finished with it, right before I left for LVO 2018. Being my first commission paint job (I’ve done a few commission conversion jobs for this chap here), but this was my first real commission painted piece. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. He’s an absolute beast of a miniature (no pun intended), and I hope the client gets as much joy out of him as I did in painting h im up. Check out the details inside!

DeepWars (short-form) video battle report #11 – Dark Mariners vs. Scaly Horde

November 1, 2017 Posted by cranky


Hello and welcome to our 11th DeepWars video battle report! We take a slightly different approach this time and do a “short-form” battle report – instead of blow-by-blow action, we do “turn summaries” and capture the action after each player turn. Let us know what you think! In this battle, we have the Dark Mariners battle the Scaly Horde to breach a submerged science station and steal it’s treasures. In this 650 point game, we have lots of magic and wall-breaching action, and its a nail-biter all the way to the end – check it out!
