Where the magic happens! I got an early birthday present from Mrs Sly Fox(Sly Vixen?), a laser cut paint organiser, and I couldn’t wait to put it together and tidy my desk a little before I left. Believe it or not it is actually tidier than it was! If you’re in the market for a modular hobby desk tidy system I recommend you Google ‘back 2 base-ix’ and have a look!
Don’t forget my 100 follower giveaway competition. Details can be found here http://slyfoxstudio.tumblr.com/post/81827651528/its-sly-fox-studios-triple-figure-follower-giveaway  I’ll be setting up a queue while I’m away to remind everyone who hasn’t entered, and if you keep an eye out there may be a teaser pic of the mini you could win appearing at some stage…..

Evening all! No real painting to show of tonight, just some prep work and pics of all my miniatures(with selfies of myself contorted around the car trying to fit them all in!). My Merc Jacks are all assembled, they just need some gapfilling before they get undercoated. All the troops and solos have been undercoated, they wont be able to progress untill I get back from my work trip in a couple of weeks, but the plan is to knock them out so I can start playing them. Magnus and his jacks will be finished later, I want to try some water effects with the Mariner, some waves on his base and water dripping off as if he’s emerging on a shoreline.

The other pics are my miniature collection in all its glory, 3500+ points of Catachans, 200+ of Circle Orboros, 150+ of Khador, 2 large Malifaux crews, a Prussian Dystopian Wars fleet, 50 15mm zombies and survivors, and a dozen random painting purchases. But I can stop any time, honest!

In the words of pre-Law & Order Ice Cube, it was a good day! I entered my Arachnarok in a local tournament’s painting comp and managed to win! The above pics are all the entries, as you can see judging was going to be tough, but I’m chuffed my big girl came through! For my efforts I won a store gift voucher(which I immediately spent on a Mariner Warjack for my WM Merc force), a Dark Sword Sansa Stark figure(she is a gorgeous sculpt, looking forward to painting her), and a copy of the latest Campaigner magazine(The Campaigner is a locally produced wargaming and miniature magazine, well worth a read if you’re into that sort of thing, details and free issue downloads can be found here http://thecampaignermagazine.com/). This was the first painting competition for the local meta with prize support, hopefully it will bring more painters out of the woodwork for future events! Its so good to see lots of beautifully painted minis on display and talk shop with other painters.

Anyway, hobbywise for me, things have been paused. I’m due to head away for work after Easter for a few weeks so I’m prepping for that mainly. I’m taking a few models on the off chance I get some time to paint(not likely!), my 2nd hand mercs are soaking in acetone as I type, getting rid of the inches thick black paint undercoats they had, and I spoke with a new client today, so Ill have a special little commission to do when I get back.

Also, don’t forget my 100 follower giveaway competition. Details can be found here http://slyfoxstudio.tumblr.com/post/81827651528/its-sly-fox-studios-triple-figure-follower-giveaway You could win a shiny painted model! I’ll be sure to post some teaser pics while I’m away too, since I probably wont be able to post any pics of painting!

Hello everyone! Here’s my tourtured looking henchmen fresh off the bench. I wanted to go with a captured witch sort of a vibe, with his powers bent to the Inquisitor’s will. With that in mind I added some glowy purple eyes, and though you cant really see it in the photos he has “witch” scrawled on his mask. I enjoyed painting this guy, I’m really happy with how my blending is coming along, particularly on the skin. Enjoy!

And don’t forget about my 100 Followers Giveaway, you could win a Sly Fox Studio custom mini. Details are over on the post here http://slyfoxstudio.tumblr.com/post/81827651528/its-sly-fox-studios-triple-figure-follower-giveaway

As promised, a wip of the next retinue member. Starting the metals now , his skin and skirt/loincloth are all done. This is probably my favorite sculpt from the squad, it’s so very 40k!

All I wanted was a Pepsi…..

Well, a couple of Mercs for my Khador anyway, and I ended up getting a small pMagnus army instead! I guess I’ve found my new painting project after I finish my Inquisitor’s squad.
Speaking of which, I’ll post a wip pic up tonight of the next squad member for your perusal. Also, my 100 follower giveaway is so very close to becoming a thing, it’s like waiting for a toaster to pop!

It’s been a very productive night, I managed to start and finish my 100 follower giveaway mini(although I’d probably call it more of a vignette as I got a little out of hand with the kit bashing!). No pics until it’s been sent to its new owner, which won’t be long hopefully, just a few to go to hit the century!

Its a 2 post kind of day! Here’s Patsy all completed and showing off in the light box. I was playing around with different backgrounds and camera settings trying to get it right, still no completey happy but practice makes perfect. The blue background seems to bring out the OSL a little better, and the white makes the colours pop more, I might try and get some grey cloud material and see how that goes as a sort of middle ground. Anyway, enough lightbox talk, time for minis! Patsy was great fun to paint, I really enjoyed pushing myself with the new techniques for the flames and OSL. The older GW Inquisition minis are such nice sculpts to paint, they fit the whole Grim Dark twisted future vibe nicely!

Next up on the table will be my 100 followers give away mini. I’ve already made a start assembling, but you wont see it until its done and posted to its new home(once I hit the magic number and draw a winner).

Hi guys and girls! Here’s my new light box I got off ebay for the princely sum of $23AU. I wasn’t expecting much for that sort of money but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. The whole box and dice fold away neatly, with everything stored in pockets, the lights came with Australian 3 pin plugs, which I wasn’t expecting, and there’s even a tripod/rest for your camera(now if I only had a camera instead of my phone I use to take pics!). The included backdrops are a little cheap and nasty, they crease easily as you will see in the pics I’ll post up next, but I can easily remedy that with a trip to the fabric store soon. All in all I think it was a great buy, I need to have a play now to work out how to take decent photos now, I’ve been used to using the back of my notebook as a backdrop for so long now!

Hi everyone, sorry for no updates in a while, I got called away for work short notice. The good news is I’m back(for a few weeks at least), and there was goodies waiting for me. I am now the proud owner of a light box, so you can look forward to hopefully some nicer photos in the future. Once I finish my flame acolyte I’ll post a review and such. In other news I’m slowly edging towards 100 followers, who’d have thought nearly 100 people like what I do! I’m thinking I might have to paint up a giveaway mini to mark the occassion and to thank you all for sticking around and liking what I do!

It’s update time! Here’s my Inquisitor’s Acolyte who I’ve decided to call Patsy. He is part of my no washes and no drybrushing challenge, eventually I’ll have a little Inquisitorial war band done. All that is remaining to do is his base, then I can attatch him, tidy up, and maybe add a little OSL if the mood takes me…..
