Katsucon Tug

I built this as a part of a demo for a panel at Katsucon.  It was made by rummaging through my spare parts box.

Star Wars Legion: AT-ST

A wonderful model to build and paint.

This is the Imperial "Occupier" from Rogue One.  Imperial Terrain offers this model.  It is 3D printed.  It offered some challenges as far as painting goes due to the print lines and the details of the kit.  That being said, it is a wonderful model, and with a little imagination can be painted up very nicely.

My approach to the print lines was to simply leave them.  They reminded me of the zimmerit the Germans placed on their tanks in WWII.  This coating prevented magnetic mines from being placed on the tank.  This made sense, since the Empire was under constant attack from the Rebels on Jedha.

So here is the finished Occupier.  The side guns are magnetized and can be moved during gameplay or removed and stored for transportation.

The driver and commander were purchased from Skull Forge Studios.

Star Wars Legion !!

I was beyond excited when I heard about this game coming out.  Now that is out, it is occupying a major part of my hobby time.  The first thing I started to build was terrain.  I began with Tatooine/Jakku houses.  I will post more photos soon.

Well I am back.  I have been working on a lot of projects, just not posting much.  That is all going to change.  I am going to try and update the blog with some current projects as well as a few that have finished.  Stay Tuned!

I have been waiting patiently to get through some backlog and commissions to start painting my hobbits.  I have finished the last of my commissions for the foreseeable future, so I splurged and painted two test models. I am looking forward to starting the rest and building a few more Hobbit holes.

Troll Drummer

This is from the plastic Troll kit.  I think it is one of the best kits GW has put out, simply because if the combinations that can be made.  I used a sponge to paint the majority of the skin pattern, building up colors with subtle changes to the mix.  I like how it turned out, and will be using this method in the future for my Mordor trolls.
