I am trying to achieve a worn leather texture on the coat. I am quite pleased with the black on the shoes and also the way his trousers are looking.

WIP Mephiston Sculpt / Conversion (3)

The Mephiston sculpt is now pretty much done and ready for primer. I'm fairly pleased with how this has come out, once it's painted up and based it should be pretty good. The paintwork will be to competition level. You can click the image for a larger view.

WIP Mephiston Sculpt / Conversion (2)

More progress on the Mephiston sculpt. The skull shoulder pad is from the same Astorath I used the wings from for the Sanguinary Phalanx commission a while back, dremelled out to fit on the plastic Chaos Marine arms I used. The cloak's not finished yet; I still need to finishing skimming over the cardboard and plasticard form. Maybe another day, perhaps a day and a half to finish it off.

WIP Mephiston Sculpt / Conversion

One of the HQ choices for the small Blood Angels army I'm building for a regular client. The client likes the existing Mephiston sculpt, but we both agree it's a little small and not very dynamic. This WIP of the sculpt shows the new pose I've gone for with this sculpt. The psychic hood is a little smaller and I feel less awkward looking, and I've added a little more motion to the piece. I was hoping to keep it to a 25mm base, but the stump is a little large. At least it'll balance this way. The overcoat will be longer and more billowing than the GW version of this figure. The only original Mephiston part is his sword. Click the image for a larger view.

Khador Man-O-War Shock Troopers WIP - Tom

Here is the first of 5Khador Man-O-War Shock Troopers. They are being painted to a high end gaming standard. I am painting this guy a few steps ahead of the other 4 just to kind of work things out. I just need to refine the metals a bit and sort out his base and then I think he will be done. I will get pics of the other ones up once they the same level as this guy then I will refine details and finish the basing off.

Chris Straw Joins WCM - Showcase

I'm very pleased to introduce Chris Straw to our clients and blog followers. Chris is available for painting and sculpting commissions, and has previously done work for both Mantic Games and Games Workshop. Some rather nice examples of his work are shown here. As ever, you can click the images for larger views.
Chris is interested in a varied workload, aimed at higher end tabletop and above. This falls in line with our standard services, perhaps with a few additional characters to test him.
