Artscale Imperial Fist – Charity A...

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 money they can get this time of year. The...

Gabriel Angelos – Part 2

I put the finishing touches to the Gabriel Angelos conversion a few days ago. The two main parts of the conversion that I think require some explanation are the cloak and the Thunder Hammer (which I’ve been informed is correctly called Godsplitter). Originally I had tried to sculpt a cloak using a sheet of wax I’d been given...

Gabriel Angelos – Part 1

I’ve kept the client of this conversion waiting a very long time for this piece, but I promised I’d have it finished in time for christmas and I intend to stick to that. Originally the brief was for an Artscale Gabriel Angelos based off of specific pieces of artwork. However, because this model will be used in competitive...

Charity Auction

Hi all. So I have this Artscale Deathwatch mini (Imperial Fist) that I made for commission a couple of months ago and unfortunately the client hasn’t got back to me. Rather than just try and find a buyer, I’m going to auction it off and give the money to a local RSPCA Animal Rescue Centre who are running an appeal at the...

Artscale Mark VIII Deathwatch

This is only my second Mark VIII power armour conversion. The first work in progress pic below shows the three basic components (legs, torso and head) assembled and based to give an early impression of how the final model will look. Normally I make the legs and torso separately and assemble later but I think doing it this way is...

Artscale Combat Squad

I didn’t really get around to making a “work in progress” post about this squad unfortunately the finished pics will have to suffice. Pretty standard work, all in all. With the exception of the shoulders (I made once then cast nine duplicates using Blu-Stuff) each Space Marine was built in the same way shown in...

Artscale Grey Knight Terminator

Overall I’m very happy with how this particular model turned out and I have to say an army of these (lets face it there aren’t many models in a GK army) would look just glorious on any battlefield, especially if they are stood next to non-superhuman models. To describe the actual work done; the legs are completely scratchbuilt to...

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 my experimenting with resin...

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 conversion to look like....

Red Scorpion – Terminator Captain

Here we have a Red Scorpions character in terminator armour (a counts as Lysander I believe). The client had commissioned four Red Scorpions Captains each equipped differently. This is the first, equipped with terminator armour, thunder hammer and storm shield. The pics are pretty self explanatory. The thunder hammer arm is magnetized...
