    Title: Memento Mori

    Description: A portrait of death in a field of nascent flowers. To bloom and to wither, the cycle is ever present.

    Inspired by the Memento Mori trope in classical painting, a reminder that death is both inevitable and always lurking by. 

    The skeleton is taken whole from the kit. The brush was carved from a spear, with some epoxy putty used to sculpt the bristles. The palette is made with a bit of thin card.

    Both easel and canvas are built out of plasticard, with a layer of thin drawing paper as the linen.

    The painting on the canvas was done by hand, using the same acrylics employed on the rest of the model. Definitely the most time consuming task in the whole process.

  • Name: jack mahaffy

    The torso, arms and head are all from the French box. The feet are a perry knight, and the horse is a fireforge, the rest is green stuff.

    Title: Lizardman air pirate

    Discerption: another lizardman air pirate. I have one Perry’s Prussian short sword attached to his belt, everything else is WA Lizardmen kit parts including the pistol conversion except the base and freshener bead flocking.

    Type: Single figure.

    Note: due to technical reason I am going to try to add some better photos a little bit after initial posts.

    Edit: now fifty percent less blurry grand canyon cryptid pics

    ...and cause I forgot side shots.

    Title: Heraldic Shield Summoned beast.

    Type: Diorama

    Discerption:  Ancient mystic shields with a heraldic monsters trapped inside are now being used by his majesty’s monster hunters.  Shield beast parts mostly came from the WA Goth kit except the nose horn which is from an older oop GW kit and because Silver Bayonet is  a hot topic (and I had no armored figure from WA) I used a British riflemen with Goth arms as the wielder, the base is a dungeon tile from a Frontline Games kickstarter pack I got off ebay.


    Note: due to technical reason I am going to try to add some better photos a little bit after initial posts.

    Edit: welp its a bit later and now I fixed the technical issue so here are the other shots.
