Ad Mech Part 2

I have finished the second part of the Adeptus Mechanicus after what feels like an age. I have very much enjoyed the commission, and working on a whole army all at once rather than a few miniatures here and there. It was not as much of a slog as I feared it might be, but I did use a lot of red!

The only mini I have not pictured is the flier, as It is being sent part assembled, and it did not fit in the light box!

I shall be taking a bit of a break from the Ad Mech, but not for long as I already have a few more waiting to be done!

The Great Skeleton Revival

When I started painting, at the tender age of 14, I was a goth. I wore black, listened to The Sisters of Mercy a lot and painted undead. It suited me to the ground and although I wasn’t all that good at painting, I loved it.

A short while ago, one of the Foundry orders was to paint a vampire on a horse. I was taken back twenty something years to my early painting days and found myself wanting to paint undead again.

One trip to Stronghold Games in Hull later, I found myself with a start collecting box of AoS Soulblight Gravelords and a colour scheme in mind.

Although I have been busy with work miniatures, I managed to squeeze in some time to paint these little gems:

I love them. 14 year old goth me loves them. Neon green paint is a bit of an interesting addition but I feel it works well.

I also have a huge box of the Mortal Realms Night Haunts hanging around so you can bet on it they will be seeing some paint in the not too distant future!

Lunar Auxilia Lord Conjurer

As well as work on the Adeptus Mechanicus commission, I have been adding to the Lunar Auxilia range for Forster’s Foundry. I love these miniatures and the more of the range I see, the more excited I am about them.

I want to share the Lord Conjurer today, as I really liked his pose, his flaming hands and his lead weight too. He didn’t take long to paint, but I thoroughly enjoyed doing so.

The prints of this mini can be found here:

Adeptus Mechanicus – Part 1

I have been working on an army commission for the Adeptus Mechanicus for the past couple of weeks, and I like to think I have finished the first third of the army. I have not done a commission this large before, but I am really enjoying it. I was thinking about having my own Ad Mech army, but now I get all the joy of painting one, without having to find space to keep it afterwards. Here is how I have got on so far:

I have already built part of the next third, so keep your eyes open for future blog posts.

These are painted to T1 level.

Knight!

I’ve been up to my knees in Ad Mech and 3D printing for a while, that I forgot to post this guy. This knight was a commission I did recently. It was a challenge as it’s the biggest miniature I have painted and built from start to finish. I thoroughly enjoyed doing so and I loved how he turned out.

The client wanted a dark and sinister scheme so after discussion, we went for black and dark copper. Here is how he turned out:

The last picture I couldn’t resist taking.

Both of us were pleased with how it turned out and I learned a great deal while creating him.

Forster’s Foundry!

Finally, we are ready to launch the website for 3D Printing!

It has been a gruelling few weeks of vat issues, build plate problems and brittle resin. We have spent a good deal of time tinkering and fixing up the 3D printers and the website and we feel we are finally ready to launch.

We are licensed to sell the Lunar Auxiliar range, and here are some of the miniatures we are currently offering:

As well as these miniatures, we are offering a ‘Print and Paint’ service. Where you supply us with a file of a miniature you have created on another site, and we will print it and paint it for you. We also offer just printing if you want to paint your miniature yourself. Here is one example that had been done so far:

The website is:

Feel free to get in touch if you have questions or want to know more about what we do!

Brothers of Guilliman Terminators!

I’ve been painting some more of Sons of Guilliman today and I thoroughly enjoyed them. These kits are a bit older Than most I have done and as such, the mould lines needed extra attention. I think they were first made in 2004 so a lot has changed since they were new

What I love about these is the colour scheme. I love how bright they are and they are a pleasure to paint once again.

They have been a welcome change from the Lunar Auxilia I’ve worked on over the past couple of weeks, I hope you like them as much as I do!

Remi – Dungeons and Dragons 3D Print

I was approached by a friend recently, who had designed and purchased a STL file of her latest Dungeons and Dragons character. The character is based on a chef, named Remi, and is for the campaign ‘The Curse of Strahd.’ I could go on about the levels of fear involved when Ravenloft is mentioned, but that would run the purpose of this post completely off course.

So, I was more than happy to print out the miniature and paint it afterwards. She told me exactly how she wanted him to look, and we discussed some other ideas as well. I was super pleased with how he turned out:

This was a good opportunity to test out the print and paint part of the new business that we are setting up, and I am pleased to say I think it worked well. Remi’s owner was also happy with the outcome, which is what matters!

Iron Warrior update!

I have begun the task of fixing up and touching up some of the Iron warriors. I’ve decided to focus on the infantry to begin with and have been doing one a day. So far it’s been good fun.

One task was to repair the casualties, which was just a case of matching the bits to the broken minis and regluing them.

Five need pinning but that can happen at a later time. Here are the finished ones.

I am enjoying this project greatly, and doing one a day is a surprisingly quick way to get through them. 84 left to go!

Then vehicles… yikes.
