New Artist in the Team: Marta

We’re extremely happy to announce that our team is growing, and we have a new team member: Marta.

As you can expect, Marta, is an experienced and successful artist, whom we are very happy to welcome in our ranks!

Not only is she capable of doing the usual miniature-painter’s work, like gaming miniatures and armies, but is not afraid of exploring more exotic territories.

In case you weren’t sure, Marta is the one on the right. The one on the left is a Xenomorph she painted. 😉

Let this Xenomorph serve as an example of her works, which we will be showcasing soon. Obviously, she has painted many more figures, so we’re showing a few of them here, as a teaser for you:

She still doesn’t have a proper gallery, but we thought that a warm welcome will be much more appreciated and encouraging. 🙂

So if you are interested in getting your miniatures painted by her, or any other artists from our team, it may be a good moment to send us a message. We’re sure that Marta’s commissions calendar will be filling up soon, so grab your commission slot while it’s still available. 😄

Simple painting can be effective for Thousand Sons

Sometimes it doesn’t take a spectacular paintjob to make your army look good. It just needs to look good enough, and our artist Benathai proved it can be true for painting Thousand Sons miniatures.

Here’s a small Thousand Sons chaos space marines force painted by Benathai. You can see the painting is pretty basic, just a mix of our two gaming-quality painting levels. But let’s be fair here, does every player need more than that to enjoy gaming with good-looking miniatures?

Thousand Sons Chaos Space Marines

This force was a very recent commission. Basically 10 Rubric Marines and 10 Scarab Occult Terminators. And if their main purpose is gaming, what more do you need?

You can see some additional photos of the individual units here:

The Thousand Sons are one of the Traitor Legions of Chaos Space Marines who are sworn solely to the service of Tzeentch, the Chaos God of change, intrigue and sorcery, though they were once the Imperium of Man’s XVth Legion of Space Marines. The main feature that distinguishes the Thousand Sons from the other Traitor Legions is the sheer number of psyker mutations that have always existed amongst the Space Marines in this Legion.

Warhammer 40.000 Wiki

So if you simply want a nice bunch of wargaming miniatures painted, you don’t necessarily need to get the highest quality tiers of painting. The simpler ones can do the trick for many people, so why don’t you consider this option?

If you would like to get your miniatures painted by our team of experienced artists, don’t hesitate and send us a message, so we can discuss the project for you. And soon you can be playing with well-painted miniatures! 🙂

Painted Gardus Steel Soul and Knight Incantor Lead the Way!

Some time ago, we undertook an exciting project, painting a Stormcast force for Age of Sigmar. The first two miniatures define the style for this force were supposed to be painted Gardus Steel Soul and a painted Knight Incantor. Thanks to our artist, Benathai, these two stalwarts of the battlefield now stand proudly in their unique green and gold color scheme, ready to lead their force into the heart of battle.

Gardus Steel Soul: A Shining Beacon of Hope

Gardus Steel Soul, the revered Lord-Celestant of the Hallowed Knights, is a living symbol of hope. With his divine light, he leads his Stormcast Eternals war host to safeguard the innocents he’s pledged to protect. His runeblade and warhammer, together with his unyielding faith, make him a formidable force against the enemies of Order.

The miniature depicts Gardus mid-landing, projected from Azyr upon a Sigmarite thunderbolt, his war cloak billowing up behind him. The iconic image, inspired by Black Library novel Hallowed Knights: Black Pyramid, is well known. But as the customer requested a touch of customization, we converted the model. We used a different helmet to add a unique twist to the miniature, and we also gave him custom-made lightnings, enhancing the dynamic feel of his landing.

Knight Incantor: The Living Tempest

The Knight Incantor, a stormcaller gifted in summoning hurricane winds and gales of mystical energy, is a force to be reckoned with. His ability to channel energy into a raging hurricane or send crackling bolts of arcane power to smite those who defy Sigmar’s will makes him a formidable ally on the battlefield.

Our version of the Knight Incantor, like Gardus, received a unique helmet and custom-made lightnings, lending him an air of majesty and raw power. His green and gold colors provide an unusual but striking contrast, making him stand out on any battlefield.

Both Gardus Steel Soul and the Knight Incantor were painted by our artist Benathai, who put in a lot of effort to bring these characters to life. as they are the beginning of a larger force for Age of Sigmar that we’ll be painting in the future.

Painting Alai Bust from Galapagos Miniatures: My Ghostly, Spiritual Interpretation

I had the pleasure of painting the beautiful Alai bust from Galapagos Miniatures.

This 1:10 scale resin model caught my eye, and when a customer asked me to paint it, I couldn’t wait to get started.

I knew I wanted my interpretation to be unique. Something that would stand out from other versions of the model. In this blog post, I’ll take you through my creative process and share some insights into how I gave Alai a ghostly, spiritual feel.

Alai, the ghostly one

First: Converting Alai for a Unique Look

The first step in my creative process was to modify the model itself. I wanted to give Alai a weapon that would complement her ethereal appearance. I decided to replace the sword with a sickle that dissolves into a wind-blown smoke. This required designing and 3D printing the additional parts, which turned out just as I had imagined.

To further enhance the ghostly feel, I remodeled Alai’s hair to follow the flow of the smoke. This subtle change added a sense of movement and unity between the character and her weapon, creating a more cohesive and captivating appearance.

Second: Choice of Colors

When it came time to paint the bust, I opted for a limited palette of muted colors to emphasize the greenish parts of the model. I wanted the green to stand out, creating an otherworldly glow that would enhance the spiritual feel of the piece.

For Alai’s skin, I chose a pale, ghostly complexion to reinforce her immaterial presence. This color choice not only adds to the overall ambience but also emphasizes the character’s ethereal nature.

Third: Unseeing Eyes and a Haunting Presence

To further distinguish my interpretation of Alai, I decided to paint her eyes in a unique, web-eye style. This gives the impression that she is blind or unseeing, as if her mind and soul are wandering somewhere else. The haunting, absent look in her eyes adds an extra layer of depth and intrigue to the bust.

Final Thoughts on painting Alai Bust from Galapagos Miniatures

I am happy with the final result and the character I managed to create with this Alai bust. The ghostly, spiritual feel of the model and the modifications and color choices, make this piece one of my favorites.

You know I love taking on new challenges and bringing unique visions to life. I am open for commissions, so if you’re a collector looking for an experienced painter to bring your favorite busts to life, feel free to reach out to me. I’ll be more than happy to discuss your ideas and create a one-of-a-kind addition for your collection.
