So enough showing what I was painting for someone else for now, I think its time that I showed you one of my own personal pieces again. This time it is the new Journeyman Warcaster Solo by the name of Kovnik Andrei Malakov. There is so much that I love about the piece and on so many levels. He is very well sculpted by the amazing staff at Privateer Press. The way he is posed, he just had this smug almost snobbish nature about him. Almost like the look on his face is meant to be sneering down at those around him.

This marks the third Gorman that I have painted since I started playing Warmachine, granted one of those was my Pirate Gorman that I got for being a pressgang member. Anyway this is another one of those models that was part of that Khador commission that I really wanted to post up and share with you guys.

Here is another model from that Khador commission that I just finished up. The overall theme of the army has not just red buy also has something purple on each model to tie them all together. On this model instead of painting her cloak and cowl in greens I decided to leave it black and highlight with the purples.

So I spent the last week working on a small batch of models for one of my local clients that is a Khador player so I had a chance to paint some models that I have already painted in my army so it was kinda fun to see how I could improve on what I have already done.

I am going to start with sharing his eSorscha model with you.

Hey gang first off I want to thank everyone for the kind word on how the wip on the conversion of this model went. I finished him up the other night and immediately started on the next one that I want to work on but I am going to take a short break from the Bokur project for a few days so I can paint some models for one of my local clients.

But first... here are some shots of the finished Bokur.

The moment I finished up the Ravenwing commission project I was trying to decide what I wanted to work on next. I knew I wanted it to be one of my personal models since it has been a couple months since I painted something of mine. Then it was a hard decision as to which project I wanted to work on the most caue I have Trollbloods, Convergence, and Khador all needing attention at the moment. So I narrowed that down real quick because my Khador needs some love cause I ned to get them bac in the win column as it has been a while since I won with them. Granted I have had a couple of very very narrow losses where the dice just died right when I had an easy roll like needing to roll a 8 on 3d6 and rolling a 7.

So since I had narrowed things down to wanting to work on my Khador more than anything else at the moment the next thing I had to figure out was what project in that army did I want to work on the most. Well some of you know that I am wanting to get more models done up for my portfolio and I wanted to show off some conversion work as well as good painting skills, I decided that since I am going to be adding an Ogrun Bokur to my Khador army anyway why not take some inspiration from NQ54 where they took 3 Bokurs and converted them for the different factions he can work for.

Now my inspiration started with the swapping the shield and shoulder pads and cutting down his spear and replacing it with the Spriggan spear just like they did in the article, BUT I decided to go with all warjack parts instead of using Man-o-war parts. I use shoulder pads from the Berzerker and the shield also came from the plastic Spriggan just like the Lance. In the article he also gives the por Bokur a stupid fuzzy hat that the Khadorans are known for wearing. Personally I hate the fuzzy hat and I think that no self respecting Ogrun would be caught dead wearing one. So I did not give mine the fuzzy hat. After following the instructions in the article he was very easy to assemble and make the proper switches.

Now in the pictures the shield and shoulder pads are just being held in place by putty. And I have since taken them back off so I can prime and paint the model. I am hoping that I can make him look good enough for my portfolio of work.

Also coming up after this IF I like the way he turns out I am going to be doing up his brothers that work for Cryx and Cygnar as well. Just have to wait and see.

Got this guy done just about 30 minutes ago and I could not wait to post this up showing what I did with him. Didn't follow the GW paint job 100% but it is pretty close though. And his face is the best face I have done in a long time. 

This model also finishes off the Ravenwing commission that I have had sitting here for a while now. So I think I might have to work on some Khador now to celebrate. 

Figured it was a good time for an update on how this project is coming along and I can honestly say that there is one last piece to paint and he is primed and waiting for me to start on him as we speak. 

So in this project was 30 Black Knights, 12 Ravenwing Bikers, 3 Ravenwing Speeders, 20 Tactical Marines, 5 Terminators, a couple of characters, a dreadnought, and Sammael. And Sammael is all that I have left to paint. 

Right now I am so excited to be able to see the light at the end of this commission it has been a long time in the making. So with one final piece to paint I had better get started on him so I can call this one finished.

Hello and thank you to everyone that has been following my painting exploits and adventures. I would like to say damn I can't believe its July already. 2014 has been flying by and we are over halfway through the year so far.

First a short look back at June... June was a busy month for the studio in a way. I have been up to my elbows in Ravenwing and have finally put a huge dent in that commission. I am looking to be done with them in roughly a week. I should have some pictures to show off the whole force very soon.

Once this one is done there are rumors of maybe some X-Wing ships making a pit stop in the studio and getting some custom paint jobs. Other than that it is looking like I will be getting to work on some of my own Khador models and maybe even working a few simple conversions. Just have to wait and see what I feel like working on next.
