Queen of Blades

This commission was unusual in that it is one of the few not Games Workshop related that I’ve done. I’m sure most of you will know Sarah Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades from Starcraft. Because this project was done on a tight budget I based the figure off an existing Warlord Saga 54mm figure rather […]

Artscale Ultramarines 3rd Company – Part 1

The Big Project. Artscale Space Marines. I coined the term Artscale after jumping on the truescale space marine bandwagon years ago. I felt it was a better fit to describe what I was personally trying to do, as truescale really refers to accurately proportioned figures, whilst I always endeavour to capture the qualities of the artwork […]

I’m Back!

Greetings all… It’s been a long time since my last post, a long time indeed, nearly two years in fact. I’ll get to the good stuff (new projects) in a little bit, but I feel it appropriate to talk about my absence first. I never really used to cover personal stuff here but I feel […]

Artscale Imperial Fist – Charity Auction

WOWZERS!!! Look what came in the post yesterday. It’s so weird to see something I made painted so amazingly well. As much as I’d like to keep it, this model is now up for auction on ebay, 100% of the proceeds will be going to the Birmingham Dogs Home Charity, who sadly need all the […]

What’s on the horizon?

Greetings all. So I know updates lately have been even sparser than usual. Unfortunately that’s not going to change any time soon. It’s time for me to move away from what I’ve focused this blog on for so long (those ever popular Space Marines) and start to work on my own ideas. I know many […]

Sneak Peek: Small Scale Wings

Just wanted to share a quick sneak peek of a piece I’m working on for Anvil Industry. This is the two wings of a jet pack like device (as far as I know). What you see here will be split down the middle. The reverse side will be have identical details. Because I needed to […]

Black Crusade 2012: Chaos Sorcerer

When I was asked to be a part of this years Wargaming charity project, The Black Crusade 2012, I saw it as an opportunity to do something nice and also to try something that’s been in the back of my mind for a while now, a Chaos Sorcerer on flying disc. While there’s technically no […]

Liquid Blu-Stuff

So I’ve got a new product to compliment the original Blu-Stuff molding putty. This Liquid Blu-Stuff (I may yet change the name) is just as easy to use as the putty, is non-toxic, and cures incredibly quickly compared to many other silicone rubbers (at least that I know of). Unlike the Blu-Stuff putty which is […]

Mechanical Talons

Hey all, So I know I’ve been a bit lax of late (nothing new there right?). I redesigned the site and then did hardly anything with it for weeks, not a great start. My original idea was to turn the site into a directory of modelling and painting articles scattered across the internet, trying to […]

Working with Blu-Stuff

Finally was able to get this introductory video made. It’s as simple and straight-forward as it can be. In future I’ll try and do more videos showing how to more adventurous projects. Please feel free to leave comments and let me know if I left out something really obvious or what you’d like to know […]

Healing Potion

For a long time I’ve thought of using real glass in my miniatures. Whenever I see a model with some kind of container holding liquid I think what a shame it is we can’t use real glass. The trouble is finding something small enough to fit the bill. This particular item will be hanging from […]

All About Clay Shapers

Clay Shapers (also called colour shapers) are used by sculptors and some painters and are rubber tipped tools that can be used for moving and smoothing modeling putty and or paint.   These are the clay shapers I have and they’ve served me well so far but I would like some more, specifically sharp edged […]
