Muninn 40k!

I started this blog in July of 2012. I wanted a place to post my commissions, ideas, techniques, and all sorts of mini goodness. I genuinely enjoy sharing my work, and really like hearing the feedback.

I've been a bit busy lately, working on a large Night Wolf commission (pics coming) so I kinda missed the fact that I've recently reached over 40,000 hits on my blog. That normally isn't a significant number but hell, I play 40k, so it's significant to me.

The last 21 months have been pretty exciting. The kids are growing like weeds, so I've had to find new ways to keep my paints and swallowable minis away from them. In addition, my family recently got a puppy. Here's Pepper.

The last month and a half has been dedicated to the Night Wolves. Here's one of the recently finished pieces: a Chooser of the Slain. The client furnished the mini, and wanted it to look like a neophyte. I wasn't quite able to capture a youthful appearance, but I still think it's neat.

I had some fun with Lahmian Medium to create the OSL from the candle. I'll have to try it again soon.

In future news, I may attempt my May Mini Challenge for a third year. I haven't decided yet, but I'm leaning "yes." It's a great way to finish a lot of the incomplete minis I've started, but never finished. I certainly have enough minis, but I'm not sure if I have enough time.

We shall see.



  1. Nice work! Good shot at the osl - that crap is a daemon to work on. Glad to see you're alive and well. Twins and a puppy o_O I am a little sad that you went mad, but it hasn't diminished your painting any.

    1. I wouldn't call it going mad, I prefer to think of it as living life on "hard mode."

      I'm sure it'll eventually pay off as the kids grow up and start doing chores and cleaning the house in order to leave me more time to paint. I keep telling myself that...

  2. Congratulations on the milestone. Keep on gorka-morka-ing. That's a thing, right?

    1. Thanks. Not so much on the Gorkamorka. But there have been rumors of a new skirmish game, and GW does have a penchant for reviving their old properties, so maybe they'll bring it back.
