Slaaneshi Chariots

Sometimes winning an eBay auction for random assorted bits, is all the motivation you need.

Snow Shovels and Terrain

While the North East of the USA is buried under several feet of blowing snow, I am hunkered down in my basement, building terrain and gluing gravel to my hands.

Metal Bloodcrushers and Conversions: How to spend two weeks on eight models.

With last summer's release of the plastic Bloodcrusher kit, I found several weeks of my work to be invalidated.  Months before the second wave of Chaos Daemons, I spent quite a while repositioning all eight of my own metal Bloodcrushers.  While I am happy with my work, I don't think I would have made this effort had I known plastic models were just around the corner...

Pre-2nd Wave Release "The Changeling"

The Tzeentchian special character known as The Changeling, received a model this past summer.  The model pictured above, was my own take on the daemon from before that 2nd wave release.

Vraksian Baneblade

The Baneblade super-heavy tank is often the centerpiece of a proper Imperial Guard collection.  In building my own Baneblade, I wanted to make sure the large-sized model had an appropriate amount of detail to serve as a true “keystone”.

Vraksian Ruff Rydas

DIY: Burning Chariot of Tzeentch

The Chaos Daemons codex certainly does include a great number of HQ units that do not have models to represent them on the battlefield.  Once more into the breach!

Der Kommissar

We all know about this commissar.  What I wanted to do, was to make one that looked kinda cool while he shot his own troops.  And with smaller shoulder pads.

A Recent Acquisition

An object of art?  A conversation piece?  Or could this be a suitable stand-in for a bio-titan?

I didn't know Guardsman Marbo was on Vraks...

It is true that Marbo has as much chance of dropping his demo charge on himself, as he does of tossing it into a crowd of Long Fangs.  That said, I thought it might a fun gamble!

Beasts of Nurgle? Really?

The oft-maligned Beast of Nurgle, is a situational specialty unit, with an unfortunate model.  I think you would agree that the Forgeworld Renegade Ogryn models serve as suitable proxies.

Who are you calling Ratling?

The Ratling Snipers I converted for my Vraksian Militia required a bit more dark flavor than just waist-high cooks with hirsute feet...
