On The Desk

Hey everybody, here's a quick photo progression of what I'm working on currently.
First up, an Iron warriors Rhino, which will have the sergeant standing in the side door trying to get his troops to embark.  The Rhino will be wearing Forgeworld doors and extra armor, along with a Chaos cockpit panel. 

Next, a tricked out Iron Warriors attack bike.  It needs no explanation....

Resin Casting Tutorial Video

     Hey folks, finally edited and posted on YouTube is my resin casting video which is a followup on the silicone mold making video.  This video demonstrates how I cast standard block molds for my terrain projects.
     Still up to come are more complex molds and roto casting.  I plan on keeping a comprehensive library of resin casting tutorials here on the blog as a reference to all of your casting projects. 
     Any questions, post them in the comments section.
Thanks for watching!

Commission Terrain Slots Open, News, Podcast?


Hi everyone, aside from building dozens of shelves for the store, I have also been tying up all of my current terrain commissions, which means, I'm available for your table top terrain project.  Check out the blog for a few bits of some of my finished work and also my in progress stuff to see if there is anything you like.  I only take on a couple of projects every few months, so now's your chance to get in.  Terrain is generally a slow and methodical pace, but if you have a concept drawing, things go much smoother.  Shipping on large items is usually a big surprise at the end too, so please be aware that the bigger it is, the more expensive it is to ship.
Drop me an email at to get going on this.
Also, I have the next vid in the casting sequence almost ready for publishing.  Stay tuned for my take on mixing and pouring resin, continued from the silicone mold making video.
I recently changed my video gear over to a Nikon D5100, so the youtube format will begin to get better.  I had some of my followers commenting that the videos and the pictures never looked the same, so I upgraded my video capability.  Also, I picked up a Matrox MXO2 for real time encoding and life is much better, so my output can (hopefully) increase to a few videos per month.
Lastly, I have podcasting capabilities built into my studio already, and I have been scheming up some content to perhaps give it a go.  My only question to my followers is, "Does miniature war-gaming/modelling really need another podcast?"  Let me know if there is any interest out there, and if there is, what would YOU as a listener want to hear my gaming group talk about?
Well, that's enough rambling, I know you all come here for pictures and videos, and they will be coming shortly.

Thank you all very much for you continued support!
