here's my finished entry for the Age of Sigmar Golden Demon. This miniature has been sat on my desk for quite a while and the Golden Demon competition was a great excuse to finish it!
I was lucky to get a custom head sculpted by Seb Perbet for this miniature which I think added loads of character to the piece.
I went with a colour pallet that reflected the traditional colours of Victorian Steam engines which I think worked well alongside the pitted metal effects.
The competition was tough in the staff category and was very lucky to receive gold. Congrats to all the winners! 🙂

Joe sculpted these amazing Fyre Slayers and are his first miniatures released as a citadel designer.
Great work Joe!
Inspired (obviously) by the art in the Fyre Slayer book.

Today is his 40th birthday and he loves Blood Angels Space Marines so to say thank you and happy birthday I painted him this Primaris Captain inspired by the Art of John Blanche.
Happy birthday Dave, thanks for bringing home that White Dwarf magazine back in 1992! 😁

We have had a bit of Blood Bowl fever here at work recently so i took the opportunity to paint up my classic Skaven team. I've had the team for years but never had the chance to paint it till the new edition of the game was released last Christmas.
I love these classic Jes Goodwin sculpts, full of character and pretty mean looking for Skaven!
I went for contrasting colours of purple and yellow with some classic chequered patterns for details.
It was a fun little project and painting more than one miniature was a challenge!
Hope you like! Daz

Been a while I know, sorry! :)
Here is a quick pic of a miniature i painted some time ago. It is a limited edition Goblin Warboss which i painted for a work friend as a gift.
It was a fun little project and my main aim was to add a lot of colour and go a little bit retro with the painting!
Hope you like, more posts soon....promise! ;)

Here's my Skitarii that I painted a while ago. I designed this kit for the Adeptus Mechanicus release and thought it would be a good learning experience to paint one.
I kept the colour scheme quite simple but decided to go for bone coloured armour instead of the traditional metals.
It was fun to paint one of my own sculpts and a little strange as well!
I gave this miniature to Jes Goodwin after we had completed the project which he lead. It was a great experience and I certainly learned a lot! :)
Thanks for reading. Daz

Here are a few of my Genestealer Hybrids that I painted from the Deathwatch Overkill game.
I was lucky enough to design a lot of the Hybrids in the game and knew that i would have to paint some up after. :)
I went for a retro sci fi colour scheme which i think suits them quite a lot, the bight orange boiler suits contrast really well with the off white armour and also hint towards the industrial nature of the mining suits.
I'm hoping to paint some more up in the future and i'll get some detail shots up soon if you are interested.
Thanks for reading, Daz :)

Here's a quick post to share the dwarf that I have recently finished. It's the classic Bugmans rangers champion miniature which is still quite fun to paint!
It was painted as a gift for a friend and didn't take too long, it certainly was strange painting a metal model again!
I hope you like!

It felt like a long project with a house move stuck in the middle but i'm happy now it's done!
As far as painting i didn't want to stray too far from the original colour scheme but i did tweak it a little by adding a little more gold on the backpack for contrast.
When i scultped this miniature i always imagined him stood on a cliff top surveying a battle picking out the best warriors. I decided to theme the base around this idea, keeping it simple but giving him that setting.
I hope you like, cheers! Darren.
