Thumbnail: Bran Sketch #1 Bran Sketch #1
A rough sketch of "Bran," an Ironclaw wolf Atavist character for "Wanderer." (26 Feb 2003)

Thumbnail: Sword Dancers Sword Dancers
The two "Sword Dancer" pieces, put together side by side. (The originals are two separate pieces on bristol paper. Some electronic touch-up was required to get the two separate scans to mesh together properly as a single image.) Background inspired by the cover of the Jadeclaw RPG book. Done as part of a commission for Talin. (11 Feb 2003)

Thumbnail: Leopard Martial Artist (color) Leopard Martial Artist (color)
Initial rough color version of the revised leopard martial artist. The outfit is meant to be primarily yellow with a bit of orange to it -- the final version will require a lot of color blending to get to that effect. Commission in progress for Talin. (12 Jan 2003)

Thumbnail: Leopard Martial Artist (revised) Leopard Martial Artist (revised)
An earlier pose idea for the clouded leopard martial artist, this time with changes made that were incorporated into #2. (Headband with "cloud"/"steam" Kanji on it; different weapon; no "balls" hung around outfit.) (8 Jan 2003)

Thumbnail: Tiger Dancer Color #1 Tiger Dancer Color Work #1
Work in progress on one of the pieces for Talin -- a Jadeclaw tiger sword dancer. As with the pieces below, this is only done in marker, and the final version will have colored pencils added for highlights, details and blending, plus I need to add a background. (As with the "fox dancer" below, it will probably be the interior of a Chinese-style building.) (1 Jan 2003)

Thumbnail: Fox Dancer Color #1 Fox Dancer Color Work #1
Work in progress on one of the pieces for Talin -- a Jadeclaw fox sword dancer. The coloring method is as with the elementalist described below, though here I didn't try to stick to a particular color strategy, going for a more garish look that I suppose would be appropriate for an entertainer. Before this is finished, I'll apply colored pencils to blend colors and add highlights and details, plus I still have to add in a background. (I haven't decided yet just what. Perhaps the interior of some Chinese-style building?) (31 Dec 2002)

Thumbnail: Elementalist Color #1 Elementalist Color Work #1
Work in progress on one of the pieces for Talin -- the snow leopard elementalist. I took the black and white version, enlarged it, printed it off, then used a light table to trace it with markers onto some bristol board. I still plan on using colored pencils to add highlights and other further details, and to blend the colors, plus I need to add the background (a snowy scene), and I'll probably end up having to use some diluted process white for "snowflakes". (31 Dec 2002)

Thumbnail: Wolfwings Badge Wolfwings Badge
Badge design for Wolfwings. I also have the large resolution version. The background is from a photo I took in North Carolina, touched up to remove power lines, and with the colors tweaked a bit. (16 Dec 2002)

As below, but with some changes as per Talin's request. (For Talin.) (11 Dec 2002)

Yet another snow leopard martial artist, this one armed with a sang kauw. (For Talin.) (11 Dec 2002)

Thumbnail: Leopard Elementalist #2 Leopard Elementalist #2

Thumbnail: Devilfish Crisis, View B BZ Devilfish & Crisis Suits, View B
Another view, "aerial", of the two Devilfish APCs and their Crisis Battlesuit escort. Devilfish #1 is in the background, though it has been touched up since the original photographs, to add highlights, and to repaint the camouflage scheme of the gun drones. The hatch on Devilfish #2 was missing, so it was replaced with a circular piece of cardboard as a "patch" measure. (The spotter was still painted up anyway, and is shown standing in the back, though not affixed there permanently.) Part of a commissioned Tau army for Brian Zahra. (13 Jan 2002)

Thumbnail: Firewarrior #4 BZ Firewarrior #4
A Firewarrior squad leader uses his hand-scanner on a malfunctioning device in the rubble. Part of a commissioned Tau army for Brian Zahra. (26 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: Commander O'Shovah BZ Commander O'Shovah
Special character Commander O'Shovah in Crisis Battlesuit. Part of a commissioned Tau army for Brian Zahra. (25 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: BZ Blood Dragon Vampire #5 BZ Blood Dragon Vampire #5 (Mounted)
A converted Blood Dragon Vampire, painted to correspond to #4, only on a plastic horse, with a horse skull from the Skeleton Command Sprue, and a spare tombstone hidden amidst the grass. As with #4, the shield is one of the old out of print plastic "coffin" shields. Part of a commissioned Vampire Counts army for Brian Zahra. (7 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: BZ Necromancer BZ Necromancer
A Necromancer on foot, standing atop a pile of skulls. (The skulls are a collection of plastic bitz from HeroQuest and the Zombie and Skeleton Regimental boxes.) Part of a commissioned Vampire Counts army for Brian Zahra. (7 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: BZ Wight #5 BZ Wight #5 (Standard)
A wight carrying a battle standard. ("Death is only the beginning.") Part of a commissioned Vampire Counts army for Brian Zahra. (2 Dec 2001)

Thumbnail: BZ Zombie #7 BZ Zombie #7 (Standard)
Regimental zombie standard-bearer detail. Part of a commissioned Vampire Counts army for Brian Zahra. (23 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Rising #1 Skeleton Rising #1
This is the first of several plastic skeletons that I have had for some time in my "Undead Army", which I decided to paint up after all these years, and see if I can find them a new, more appreciative owner. (After all, I've got plenty of skeletons to tor-- er, that is, challenge my players with, and I don't have the time to actually play Warhammer Fantasy Battles anymore.) This one is unusual in that it is a HeroQuest plastic skeleton (or part of one), rising from the grave with an axe from my bitz box, and a shield from some unidentified Warhammer Regiments box. The gravestone is a piece of mat board with a plastic shield icon on it. Gravel was used for the dirt around the skeleton (though it doesn't show well from this angle, on account of the fiber grass.) (8 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Warrior #1 Skeleton Warrior #1
This, like most of my plastic skeletons, is from the old Warhammer "Skeleton Army" set (circa 4th edition Warhammer). It's actually made with parts from the "archer" (with the open right hand), but I put in his hand a sword from a Mordheim sprue. He's holding an old Elf shield that has an Empire shield icon used to decorate it. The leg was segmented and reassembled to be standing upon a plastic skull from HeroQuest. (8 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Warrior #2 Skeleton Warrior #2
This is actually fairly representative of an "ordinary", unconverted skeleton from the old "Skeleton Army" boxed set, with a plain "heater" shield that was included as part of the assortment of shields that came with the original set. However, for my Skeleton Army, I decided that either every shield was going to be embossed (with shield icons added to plain shields, in most cases), or else I would hand-paint varied insignia on some of them for variety. This is a typical example of such, where I've tried to indicate a dagger and a scroll reading "Mortis". (8 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Standard #1 Skeleton Standard #1
This is a regular Skeleton Army skeleton, but with a standard that comes from the newer "Skaven/Goblin/Undead Command Sprue", which I acquired as part of a trade. The standard and shield are both hand-painted. The shield's scroll reads "Mortis", and with some imagination, the scrollwork on the standard reads "Unto Death" and "Pax Mortis". (There's no real rhyme or reason to this, since I don't expect the average Warhammer player to be stooping over to read the enemy's slogans anyway.) For variety, I stuck a female head leftover from my conversion of the Female Skaven model on top as an "icon". The hanging skulls and hand are extra "bitz" from the command sprue. The skeleton does have a head, incidentally, but it's hard to find just the perfect position to show the skeleton, the standard and the shield detail all at once. (8 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Champion #1 Skeleton Champion #1
This skeleton is dressed up in "armor bitz" that came with the original Skeleton Army -- breastplate, helmet, leg guard and neck guard painted black and drybrushed dark silver. He has a metal mace from some "undead command" bitz, and an old out of print embossed "undead" shield. (8 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Skeleton Musician #1 Skeleton Musician #1
This is another skeleton that has a piece from a set of metal command bitz -- a cobra-shaped horn. I imagined that, this being an undead army, the cobra might actually be "real" (although not in a truly living state), so I painted it accordingly, but with red eyes. (8 Nov 2001)

Thumbnail: Khorne Champion on Juggernaut Khorne Champion on Juggernaut
This monstrosity is known as a "juggernaut" -- a magical machine-beast fashioned of ensorcled bronze -- and it happens to have a Champion of Khorne riding on it. In order to make use of some of the "bitz" I was sent along with these models to paint, and to make the Juggernaut a little more fancy, I applied extra details. It already had some "hanging chains" on the sides of the shoulders with hints of dangling decorations, but the chains and decorations were of such shallow relief that they looked almost painted on. So, I used four "skulls on chains" to hang from the shoulders, for starters, two on each side. There was also an odd six-pronged "fence post" that was included, with a head mounted here, a skull there, and other nice things. I snipped it in half and trimmed it up and mounted the spikes atop each of the large shoulder pieces, painting up the segments to bring out the detail (and gore). (5 Oct 2001)
