How to Paint Space Wolves

How to Paint Space Wolves is a tutorial for painting two different types of Space Wolf armour, a GW style marine and a heavily weathered version (not quite Blanchitsu, but it wouldn’t take much to push it in that direction, especially if the technique was used on a more suitably converted model) .

Age of Sigmar:Nighthaunt

Amongst a great many other things, I’ve been working on a Nighthaunt commission, the client wanted a really nice simple scheme of all ghostly figures (including their weapons and any associated chains, manacles and other spooky bits) with nice bases. The ghosts themselves have been relatively easy, but coming up with a good basing recipe for them has been problematic. After painting up the Sepuchral Guard though, I really liked the base painting method and decided to try it on the Nighthaunt. Pleasingly it’s worked really well!

Shadespire Sepuchral Guard

Following on from Zarbag’s Gitz I’ve painted up the Sepuchral Guard from Shadespire, and I have to say, I like these more, much more. Whilst the goblins were good, I do find them a bit on the cartoony side of things, but these Skeletons were really cool to paint. As with the goblins I followed the GW TV tutorial which worked well and gave me a great recipe for graveyard dirt bases. Whilst I’m perfectly capable of painting without the tutorial, I would prefer to do that should I really go for it on a set for myself!

Creating ‘Anything is Possible’

‘Anything is Possible’ is a painting I created which tries to capture the feeling of being able to do, well, pretty much anything, when you roll a natural 20 in Dungeons & Dragons. 

I’ve had this floating around on facebook for a little while now, with a favourable response from most people who’ve seen it. I thought it was high time I put together a little walk-through of my thought processes while I was painting it.

Nightvault warband, Zarbag’s Gitz.

Zarbags Gitz, nightvault warband

I’ve just finished Zarbags Gitz, a really nice night goblin warband for Underworlds: Nightvault (which is season 2 of Underworlds, the first being Shadespire)

I adore the fact that each of these Nightvault warbands are bespoke sculpts specifically for the game instead of just rehashed box sets of old models. and the addition of sculpted bases makes them a real treat to paint!

I also found myself intrigued with the painting videos from the Warhammer Community youtube channel, Warhammer TV and decided I would follow one to see what it was like. I was quite pleased with the result, these are a tabletop level commission and the tutorial gives a really good tabletop level if you follow it closely (I’ll admit, in the absence of a few of the paints I had to improvise a couple of colours, but that’s where experience pays off). However, now I want to paint a set of these to a really high level as the sculpts are that good!

I paint miniatures for a living, I create art on canvas and anything else I can get my grubby little paws on, and I occasionally sculpt too. All in all not a bad way to spend the day.
