Project Dark Mechanicum – Adepticon 2019

After Adepticon 2018, even though we had one “interesting” game there 😉 , we decided to embark on our 2019 Adepticon project – Dark Mechanicum! Riffing off the Porphyrion Knight I made for Adepticon 2018, I wanted to make a full army of Dark Mechanicum in the same spirit of that conversion, but across the entire army. Check out the pictures of the models of the army in progress inside!

Commission Khanjira Dragon!

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…

It lives! Lumpy the Nurgle Daemon Prince is painted!

Hey everyone, Cranky Old Gamer here and I excited to finally say that a project that has long been on my “to be completed” shelf is finally done. A long while back I started a little conversion project for a Nurgle Daemon Prince, who I named “Lumpy” (for hopefully apparent reasons). Well, he sat in my “needs to be painted pile” for long enough, and I’m happy to say I’m really happy with how he turned out. It didn’t take me too long to paint him, and maybe it was just that I was working on other projects. But I…

30k Mechanicum Magos Dominus completed & tutorial

I’ve completed my Magos / Archmagos for my 30k Mechanicum army. It’s the Games-Workshop Tech Priest Dominus model, and it seems to work great for a 30k magos / archmagos. I really love this model. Such a cool, detailed, and characterful miniature, and was super fun to assemble and paint. I wanted to show my final touches on this guy and maybe talk a little bit about the process/steps I used to paint him up. I’m so happy I picked Mechanicum for my first 30k army and while I was painting this guy up I really cemented as to why…

Getting my DzC on – painting up my Shaltari

I’m so pumped up about finally getting some other projects wrapped and really focusing on my Shaltari for Dropzone Commander. I’ve been focused on Warmachine for a while and since I’m in a pretty good spot with that, it’s finally time to redirect some of my hobby hours to getting my DzC stuff rolling. In all honesty, life has been super-busy of late and my hobby time is very precious, and I have to make every hour count. Luckily, Hawk Wargames has made some super incredible models and they paint up quite easily and look stunning with minimal effort. I’ve…
