Sai Zhang from Neko Galaxy, inspired by Deathburger

I painted this Sai Zhang from Neko Galaxy in 2020 and it was an interesting project because I tried to capture the style of the original artwork with my painting.

Now that you’ve seen Deathburger’s version, take a look at mine on the photo below:

I am not attaching any more photos because you can see the model on the video below:

The model comes from Neko Galaxy and it’s a resin figure in 75mm scale. I painted it with acrylic paints, using techniques of wetblending and comic book style of blacklining. It’s inspired by Figure was Deathburger‘s original artwork from the book Glory to The Mashine! The Future is Now.

Here you can see a few shots from the process of making the model, including the custom base that I got from a team-mate, Calamity.

Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps miniatures

Recently we had a chance to paint an interesting set of miniatures for the Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps boardgame.

This project was interesting thanks to the fact that we had a chance to combine the creative powers of two painters and display two quality levels in one subject.

So some miniatures, considered more important by the customer, were assigned for a level 2 paintjob, while the remaining ones were left for level 1.

Do you recognize these characters from Aliens?

Here is the whole group with level 1 miniatures on the left and level 2 miniatures on the right. The power lifter is level 1 as well.

Rejven did the miniatures at level 2. They got detailed camouflage, some detailing and a bit of weathering.

You can see some more photos of these models here:

They look pretty good for a level 2 job, don’t they?

Level 1 miniatures

Now if you want to see the level 1 part of the set, the way Thymos.Theos painted them, here they are:

Bearing in mind that level 1 is our basic quality, they are really good for gaming models!

Finished project

And to close this post, here is another family photo of the whole group:

We were happy with how they turned out, and apparently so was the owner of these models, who said:

Wow, they look fantastic 🙂
Thank you for the excellent work and the personal way you’ve dealt with me via email.
I’ll be sure to write you guys a great review.
