Ironjaws Megaboss part 4

So far the Megaboss has been a joy to work on and that’s helped me get back into the swing of a regular painting schedule. I keep forgetting quite how big this mini is, but it gives me an opportunity to add lots of texture and detail.

 I’m going to be painting the armour for a while, but it’s not proving to be too great a chore. For the areas of bare metal, I’m using a similar scheme to the one I used on my Scourges. The blue/grey creates a nice contrast to the areas of red painted armour while the brown tones, in the shadows, tie it all together.

Once the armour is done I’m going to try my hand at painting some freehand glyphs. I used to paint quite a bit of freehand decoration on my minis but it’s been a long tome since I’ve attempted an elaborate scheme. I’m very much looking forward to the challenge or reviving old skills!

In the meantime... 

Gutrot Spume and his pals are packed and ready for a little holiday in Nottingham! I couldn’t make it to the Golden Demon winner’s day this year, and so once again missed the opportunity to have my demon winning minis displayed at Warhammer World.

Well better late than never, this Saturday it’s finally going to happen! I’ve a few year’s worth of winners to catch up with (yes, that is the 1990 Predator at the back) and it’s great to think that my work will be displayed alongside so many awesome minis!


  1. Very nice until now :-)love the face, very impressive.

  2. I love your work. Such an inspiration.

  3. Hi, I'm still new to this, but how have you achieved the chalkiness look to the armour? Is it through drybrushing?
