Space Wolf Army Commission.

“Street by street and block by block we’ll sweep them out. There are snipers on the rooftops and the underpass is heavily mined. It’s going to be dangerous, it’s going to be fun.” Lord Varrn, Wolf Lord. Before each commission we have a conversation with the client and work up a design brief. We thought…

Ultramarine Signifier, Legion Herald. Commission.

We have been wounded sorely. Yet still we stand, with fire in our eyes and valour in our hearts. Let them think us beaten. We shall teach them otherwise. Unattibuted. One of the lesser-used consul choices, the Legion Herald offers some wonderful buffs for an army. Although you cannot buy a jet pack for the…

Valentus Dolor, Tetrach of Ultramar. Commission

To take a town, send a legionary. To take a city, send a squad. To take a world, send a company. To take a culture, send a Chapter. Popular Ultramarine aphorism. Commissions like this rarely come around. This piece was created alongside four other Tetrarch models to represent the upper command structure of the XIIIth…

Mortarion, Primarch of the Deathguard. The Reaper, Commission.

We are all tyrants. Do not fool yourself. We were bred for nothing else. Mortarion the Reaper. Mortarion is a quixotic figure. Black Library fiction is at its best when investigating the discrepancies that have been thrown up throughout the years, rather than try to heal them. Mortarion reviles the Warp and any magic-user. He…

Deathguard Fellglaive Commission

The Deathuguard are wonderful, aren’t they? They allow you to try every weathering technique the lord made, all on the same vehicle! This piece was a testbed for the Weathering Masterclass series to show how to create these effects on a large surface. The series will expand to encompass all original legions with the subtle…

Angron, Lord of the Red Sands, Primarch of the World Eaters Commission

War is only won when every enemy is dead. A pacified enemy is still an enemy. Angron. This is the model that changed my life. I was a wine merchant on a lunch break when I first saw this advertised. I couldn’t believe it. They were finally doing the Primarchs! And Angron was first! I…

White Scars Kill Team Commission

‘Only poets can be true warriors.’ Yesugei This project developed off the back of the White Scars Praetor I painted for the Patreon. The brief was to create a force of White Scars that could fit in a Thunderhawk Gunship. The colour scheme used dirty greens and whites rather than the polished baby blue mid-tones…

White Scar Thunderhawk Commission.

I wish this kit was more widely used in games. Given their prominence in the lore, it’s a shame that they are relegated to the one-off, the special game had every once and a while. This is a recurring conversation I have with one student. “The Stormbird rules should be Thunderhawk rules, and make the…
