I'm doing a little T-Shirt fundraiser for help offset some terrain and related costs for the Nova Open Heresy Events, as well as Adepticon, MD 30K and anything else I get mixed up in. They are only for sale for three weeks so don't wait!

Time for another Nova Charity Raffle! I teamed up with Dave Taylor to create two Horus Heresy armies for this year's raffles. Dave headed up a team painting this beautiful Sons of Horus army and he wrangled me into overseeing the team that painted this Mechanicum Army. I agreed under the condition that I could paint a Vultarax Stratos, because it is such a cool model. Big thanks to Dave, all the painters and the Nova Charity Foundation crew. Looking forward to breaking our record and raising lots of bucks. There are lots of other things in this year's raffles too, so check them out! Looking forward to seeing everyone at NoVa for beer, dice and Heresy!

Hey Blog, long time no see. Time for another NoVa Charity Auction. Here is an Ork Fighta-Bommer/Dakka Smakker/Uruk-hai Space Nazi Blastamathing. It's yellow! It's part of an army being raffled off to benefit Doctors Without Borders.
Buy some tickets here. Or just live your life as a thoughtful, empathetic human being and treat others with kindness, that works for me too!

I've had a lot of folks asking me lately for a step-by-step on how I painted my Alpha Legion. I posted this on the Heresy 30K forums a couple years ago, here is is again. It probably isn't as thorough as it could be but you are a bright bunch, you'll figure it out. You are welcome to copy my paint scheme exactly if you really want, but I think you will enjoy yourself more if you take bits and pieces from different sources, mutate them, and create your own look. Stealing plus changing equals creating.

This summer, my friend Thomas Wynn put together a Car Wars campaign for our gaming group. Everyone added guns,armor and assorted other door-dad onto Matchbox-sized die-cast cars and we pushed them around and made laser noises. I made a few cars but this little Daihatsu Midget tuk-tuk thing was my favorite. The missile launcher is scratch built. I liked the original color and didn't want to cover up the kanji on the side (It's a brand of tea, so a friend tells me) so I airbrushed transparent Badger Ghost Tints onto the various panels to shade and tone them. This allowed the original paint to show through nicely. After that it was just pin washes and streaks with tube oils. The chips, by the way, were already in the enamel base coat. The are nice and three dimensional and took the washes nicely! I'll put up some photos of my other cars when I get a chance.
