Nearly there with Breaking Rust!

Pleased to share some pics and findings with you today.

1. I still love painting miniatures.
2. I actually achieved a red that fits the army palette beautifully
3. I have great friends without whom I might have drifted away from the hobby for quite some time
4. More to come: I ordered white spray primer, some new GW paints and the Empire "wagon altar thing" that comes with two gorgeous conversion starting points. I'm nearly ready for paint with three marines and four cultists.

A note to self that in the future I want to be bolder with the direction Ive been going: my conversions be even more technically precise and my painting to be much less so and much more organic.


  1. The muted red fits in really well with the same styled blues on the Alphas. Very cool. Your freehand is so subtle on those robes, it's damned near perfect. Bravo sir, nice to see an update.

  2. Beautiful, Migs! I wasn't entirely convinced by the red robes at first, but seeing them next to the green in the last picture, it's perfect: it's doing exactly what you wanted it to. Great stuff.

  3. Amazing job as always.
    You never fail to impress me with every miniature.

  4. Thanks so much guys.

    Yeah, this was an odd one, alone I had doubts, but referencing it to the rest of the army, it just looked exactly how I visioned it. Not only that, but it makes the other colors pop so nicely. Eventually he'll get a squad of Skitari henchmen with just a little bit of that red thrown in.
