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 […]

Painted Truescale Space Marines

I recently got some pics sent my way of conversions I’d worked on for other people. It’s actually quite rare for me to see models I’ve worked on actually painted, so to see these is a bit of a treat for me (too much green and grey on this blog). I have to admit when […]

Painted Chaos Sorcerer

I finished the paint job on this a few days ago but have been procrastinating over posting it. I have come to realise that with having painted much the last year or so that my painting skills seem to have diminished a bit. I found myself at a bit of a loss regarding the black […]

Painting and Finishing the Doombull

UPDATE 9/8/17: Here’s a video of the finished model (still one of my favourites). Find the origins of this project post here. Find the post about the making of the wings here. It’s been really nice to do some painting for a change as it’s been so long since I’ve really sat down and painted pretty much […]

Inquisitorial Agent

This was a very specific commission for an Inquisitorial Agent (for Dark Heresy I believe) to be based off of a LotR Arwen mini. The Hadhafang sword looked really ugly and nothing like a sword so I removed it and resculpted it to look like she was holding a scroll. The pointy ears were drilled […]

Artscale Master of the Forge

I’d wanted to do this particular conversion for a very long time. Ever since I named the original blog “Master of the Forge” I envisioned having a pic in the header of the home page of a Master of the Forge model, something suitably impressive. I had a few sets of resin legs spare from […]

Tutorial – Checks on Shoulder Pads

I’ve seen many attempts at painting checks onto Space Marine shoulder pads (for Lamenters chapter models) that in my mind don’t quite look right. I’ve been asked more than a few times how I did them on my own, so here’s the mini guide I did a while back. The problem I’ve seen people have […]

Tutorial – Painting Yellow

I originally posted this tutorial on a couple of forums a few years back and found myself looking for it recently as I want to paint my new Master of the Forge in yellow armour. I figured I re-post it here amongst other tutorials. The first section of this tutorial is for those people lucky […]

Artscale Grey Knight Chaplain

Ever since reading the Grey Knights Omnibus book I’ve wanted to convert a Grey Knight Chaplain (NOTE: this is before the release of the 5th edition Grey Knight codex). When I decide to start any kind of project I look for inspiration (usually artwork or other minis) to help envision what I want the final […]

Daemonhunter Inquisitor

This is my Daemonhunter Inquisitor for use in a Grey Knight army. I’ve always liked the characterful nature of Inquisitors and the opportunity to make them rather unique, even when the rules for them have been rather rubbish. This particular model is a simple conversion of Forgeworld’s Solomon Lok. I refitted him with a trimmed […]
