Orks for sale

The eBay auction is up. I only added on group of five orks from my mob of 25. I think I am going to add an eBay store to sell the rest of them and other GW stuff as I finish them.

I don't feel eBay is the best place to sell my work but this time of year is always slow; so maybe it will drum up some new business.

I am thinking about running a deal for the first 5 people who contact me and arrange to send me five 28mm miniatures / four 15mm stands of miniatures and I paint/assemble them for free (you pay shipping back and forth).

If you decide to use me for a future order, I'll give you free shipping for that order. And for every client you send my way who spends $100 USD or more, I'll paint another 5man /4stands for free (you pay shipping back and forth).

What do you all think of that?

UltraForge Tree Woman WIP Part 1

An unfortunate lumber jack is being investigating by the Lady of the Forest!

The lumber jack is an old Wargames Factory Viking I had lying around. I made a few sculpting mods to him to "help" bring out some of his details and convert him into a more panicked expression. These casts a fairly "soft" and most of the detail is lost in the process. I think WG has improved their molds since the vikings but I stopped buying from them after the Chinese take-over.

If your looking for plastic vikings go for the Gripping Beast Plastic Vikings, they are sharp casts.

Notice the shine on the lumber jack. This is due to the custom washes and glazes I mix with Future Wax. It leaves this gloss effect, which is cool if your going for the wet look but nasty looking here. Once the model is complete I'll hit it with a coat of Testor's Dullcoat, this will kill any nasty shine.

I have begun adding branches to the model.

The next step is to build the tree canopy and finish the highlights.
