Paint Yoshit Challenge

Hi Everybody!

It's Brother.P  (brother of Mr.Pink)

If I'm good at one thing, its driving my brother crazy. Last time I challenged him, he put me in my place and got a bunch of Genestealer Cult miniatures painted, and won some Gal Vorbak for his troubles. When I was given a similar challenge to paint Blood Angel Scouts, I majorly failed... Now I'm stuck buying my own Word Bearer Shoulder pads.

Anyways, this year I've got a new competition. From January until the end of March, Mr.Pink and I will compete to see who can get more models finished. This competition is just two brothers trying to finish the most models to put the other to shame.

Haemonculus Coven - Timelapse of Display Board Construction

While working on the display board for my Haemonculus Coven for Armies on Parade 2016, I decided to set up my camera to make a timelapse recording of the sculpting and some of the painting.

Unfortunately, I'd already built the actual board when I had this idea, and I stopped the timelapse at the point where I pretty much messed up the painting on the flesh bits and had to redo a lot of it.

So, though this is incomplete, I hope that people find it interesting. I've sped it up a bit as it's a bit boring to watch someone sculpt spinal columns for several minutes!

Enjoy, and let me know if you'd like to see more videos!

Krak, Made to Order!

Hi, Everybody!

It's Brother.P, the brother of Mr. Pink!

This Holiday Season, GW is giving back in countless ways. Firstly, there is now a retailer in my city that stocks GW stuff, including the entire line of paints! Secondly, GW introduced 'Made to Order'. Giving folks the chance to relive the glory days of pewter models which helped us develop our upper body strength. (Note: pewter is the tin/silver metal originally used for casting GW models, well, after they stopped using lead)

I want to count down the top 10 models that I'd love to see get the 'Made to Order' treatment. To all the Dark Eldar, Tyranid and Genestealer Cult enthusiast; be warned, this is mostly a list of Imperial models.

"Oh, hello Officer. I was just admiring your shotgun, yes, I will move along"

Haemonculus Coven Display Board for Armies on Parade (Flesh Friday)

So, as is usually the case, I realized on about September 14th that Games Workshop's in-store Armies On Parade event was happening in a month. This, really, should be the one event that is marked on my calendar and I work towards all year. I don't actually play that much 40k, and mostly do all this conversion and painting work as a means of seeing a concept through to actual models. If I inspire some folks along the way, or encourage them to try to do more with their models, we'll that's great.

But Armies on Parade is pretty much the best possible place to showcase the kind of work I do. 

However, I always realize it's coming up late in the game, and don't have enough ready in time, and blah blah blah.

This year is different.
