Thank you both for the kind words!

Well after a substantial downtime due to the holidays I am back in the saddle behind the painting desk. I found out today, that my work schedule is going to be changing to the permanent assignment that I have been waiting for, so things should be settling down in that department too. I got back at it yesterday and today doing some work on the Gunmage Captain Adept. There is still much to do, but I think he is coming along.

Hmm I love the stone circle guy, but I'm not quite sold on the cape of the latest guy. Your blues are usually so much better than that. Or is he still a wip?

Indeed he was still a WIP at that stage. Thanks for your comments girl!

Well after some time away from the paint brush I finally got down to business and finished up the Gun Mage Captain Adept. My position at work has changed considerable in the last two weeks, first and foremost I have a different schedule. Secondly it entails quite a bit more responsibility and time. To that end I have had little time in the last couple of weeks to work on much of anything. Thankfully, I seem to have finally adjusted my time to allow me more time to work on the hobby stuff that I so enjoy.

Without further ado, here is the finished Gunmage Captain:

I am always down on the fact that I have such a hard time completing entire units. Fortunately for me I get a boost when I finally finish one and it looks like I wanted it to when I started. Here is the whole group of Gunmages that I was commissioned to work on:

Image

Up next in the que is Artificer General Nemo & Storm Chaser Adept Caitlin Finch. Both pieces have a lot of potential and I am really looking forward to getting a move on them.

As always comments and critiques are most welcome.

Well I am back at it again! Sorting out a good hobby schedule around my new work schedule has been challenging to say the least, but over the last several days, mostly today, I was able to sit back down to the painting desk and really get a nice chunk of work done on Nemo & Finch. I will start with the photos and talk a little about them after:

Nemo

Finch

Even though I have complained in the past about the overwhelming amount of blue that I have had to paint during the course of this commission, when I get a hold of models like these I really do enjoy painting them. The Cygnar scheme really is a joy to paint and I think that after all this time I am really getting the hang of painting it.

There is still quite a bit to do on both of them, Finch more so than Nemo, but I think that they are progressing along nicely. I really wanted to spend a lot of time on the white cloth aspects of both of them. I wanted to make sure that the white came out with a nice amount of depth. I think that it came out really nicely. I may go back and clean up a few of the blends, little things that I noticed in the photos, but for the most part I think the white is done.

I am hoping that I am going to get another couple of sessions in over the weekend as I would really like to get this big batch of stuff sent out to the client by the end of next week.

Well after a 14 hour marathon painting session today I finished off Nemo. I am really happy with how he came out in the end and I am once more finding that I absolutely adore the Warmachine sculpts. Anywho, not much else to say other than I am hoping to jump in on Finch tomorrow. Onto the pics:

Thank you very much Soria, I am glad you liked him. I have really come to fall in love with the Privateer Press models, so much so that I am thinking about selling off some of my GW stuff so that I can get involved in that system from a personal hobby stand point a bit more once I am done with the commission stuff.

Practice and patience makes perfect mate. Faces and eyes are really one of the hardest things to do. I spent almost 2 hours on his face alone tweaking washes, blending highlights, and the like. They really are a matter of endurance if you ask me.

Anyhow, I have been working on getting Caitlin Finch done and I am pleased to say that I have made some excellent progress from the last pic of her. Still quite a bit to do on the upper body, including of course, her arms and staff, but I think all in all she is coming along nicely:

Well I did it, I finally finished off a block of models for this commission that seems to just keep on going, not that I have any complaints. I finished off Caitlin Finch this afternoon:

I wanted to get a shot of her with Nemo as well:

Image

I think that they look great as a pair!

Finally I thought it would be good to get a nice shot of all the Cygnar stuff that I have been working on the last couple of months before I send this stuff off to the client.

Image

Next up on the list are a couple of pairs of Kayazy Eliminators. Look for progress shots of them to crop up soon.
