I finished this a few months back and like many of my models, it stood unfinished for a long time. Now it is finally completed: The Plasma Obliterator Tower.

In anticipation for its return, I wanted to make sure that I'm able to hit the ground running with some games by making sure that I had a gang painted and ready … Continue reading Necromunda

Here in all his glory, the Scourge of Sanctus Reach, leader of the Red Waaagh!: Grukk Face-Rippa I'm quite pleased with how he turned out, however I'm not sure whether I like the check pattern on his … Continue reading Grukk Face-Rippa
