I paint things, sometimes I even use them in games. I also paint on commission, if you are in the Adelaide area and want some work done contact me for a quote. Interstate enquiries welcome.

 

Hi everyone! No painting updates today, I’ve been getting ready to take Mrs Fox(Sly Vixen?) to Melbourne to see Queen for her birthday this weekend. Please accept a pic of my newest tattoo(it’s only a few hours old new) instead, it’s part of my steampunk Alice in Wonderland sleeve I’m slowly putting together, and fear not, I’ll be back at the painting desk soon!

3 posts in 3 days, I do spoil you lot! Here’s a wip update on the Infinity bikers. The bases are almost done, just a little work on the skeleton sign post to go. The bikes are looking flash, I tried airbrushing a candy type effect using ghost tints over a metallic base and they came out beautifully! Very happy with the results. I pinwashed in the panel lines tonight, ready to start the rest of the details tomorrow night.

Its a lazy Sunday morning here, time for some pretty pictures! Here’s my dice box diorama all finished. For a “I wonder what this will turn out like?” project I couldn’t be more happier. I was going to go with an icey winter theme, but once I added the ivy I decided against it and went for a bit more lush, foresty vibe with some moss and a few fallen leaves. It was a fun little(emphasis on the little!) display piece to put together, 15mm minis still have a lot of detail you can work with. Enjoy!

Happy Saturday everyone! Here’s a couple of wip shots of my Infinity bikers. You can see the custom touches I’ve added in(sissy bar, fishtail exhaust, extra headlight, etc) and their bases. I’m digging the old school bike mods mashed up with the futuristic bikes themselves, plus the little Mad Max-esque post apocolypic addition to the base! Hopefully the greenstuff will cure overnight and I can lay some paint tomorrow. I also started basing my 15mm dog pack, they are some tiny pooches!

Days off with nothing to do are great ways to get hobby stuff done! You might remember a while back I got an inclination to build a 15mm diarama inside a Chessex dice container? Well today I painted up the figures for that, now I just need to get some greenery and add it, plus some snow to the base. I also started the greenstuff work on my Infinity bikers, they’re coming along well too.

Hi everyone, I’m back from my work trip and I come bearing pictures! I surprised myself today and finished Kitsune in a couple of hours, I was expecting her to take a while given the 2 week break from painting and the fact her skin isn’t my usual recipe, but everything just flowed beautifully today as you can see from the results. I even had a crack at freehanding some cherry blossoms on her kimono, what do you think? I’m stoked with her, she is easily my favourite team member. She’s also the last member of my Smash Effect team, they’re going to look so nice on the tabletop when my league begins in a fortnight(I’ll be posting lots of pretty pictures up for that, don’t you worry!). 

Next up on the bench are the 2 Infinity bikers I got a while ago, I’ll be experimenting with some candy effects on them, hopefully they look good! Thanks again for following, as always stay tuned for more Sly Fox painting adventures!

Hello everyone, this is Willhiem, somebody rustled his jimmies and he is not amused! Willhiem is the 4th member of my Smash Effect team, and by far the largest. He was also the most fun to paint so far, although Kitsune the fox girl might take that honour yet! Unfortunately this will most probably be my last post for a couple of weeks while I go away for work, however rest assured I will return soon to finish my team, and begin some of the many other projects awaiting paint on my shelf. Stay tuned, and thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone! Here’s a wip shot of tonight’s work on Willhiem. He’s coming together real nice!

Alas, my Smash Effect opponent didn’t show today at my club’s monthly games day, so I just took some pics of my team checking out what the terrain. Also pictured is some of the other games that were going today. I watched the guys run through the intro scenario for Dystopian Wars, the 2.0 release seems to have made the rules even more convoluted, I’m kinda glad I don’t play it any more. The last one is a playtest we did of a ruleset that Battlefront put out a while ago, it’s a basically a tabletop version of World of Tanks where everyone starts off as the same stats, then you earn random upgrades by killing other tanks. It’s fast and furious, and easy to pick up, plus it’s crazy fun! I think it’s going to be a regular occurance at our games days now!

Happy Saturday everyone! Here’s my first 3 Smash Effect team members all finished and ready for a practice game tomorrow. They are a mix of Incursion and Secrets of the Third Reich miniatures for those wanting to know where they come from. I mostly enjoyed painting them, especially Katya, she was a joy with how crisp her detail was. Ash’s flames are very flat so were tricky to get right, but I’m really happy with the results. Greta fought me all the way, especially her face as there is no detail so I had to rely on my painting skills to add some detail to it. On the flipside though I nailed(IMHO) her white shirt and her legs. I was very anxious while adding her stockings today as I was so happy with the flesh, but I think I still managed to keep the detail there. Also pictured is a wip shot of Greta’s constant companion, Willhiem. I think he is going to come up great!

Time for an update on my Smash Effect team. The ladies are coming along nicely, I should be able to finish them off tomorrow night and then get started on Willhiem the cybernetic, hmg toting gorilla. I’ve also sorted the colour scheme for Kitsune the Samurai Fox girl. On Sunday I’ll be having some practice games too(I’m making an exception to my personal “If it ain’t painted, it ain’t played” rule), so expect some action shots Sunday night!

I feel like this Smash Effect project will become a bit of a “How SlyFox paints” kind of thing, what with all the updates…..Anyway, here’s the 3 ladies from last night with their clothes blocked in. It’s refreshing to change it up and move on to models I haven’t painted or had anything to do with before, I recommend it if you feel a bit stale with your current projects!

Here’s a little update on my latest project, my Smash Effect team. Left to right is Katya, Ash, and Greta. I managed to get their skin done tonight. They are a mix of Incursion and Secrets of the Third Reich minis, and the ladies are looking lovely!

Hello everyone! Here’s the latest batch of minis to come off my bench. I really love how Alexia turned out, she looks lovely and bright against her grungy Risen. Gorman and Valechev scrubbed up ok too, in spite of me hating the models. 

These are the last of my Warmachine models I’ll be painting for a while, next up on the blocks will be my Smash Effect team. Enjoy!

And as a totally unrelated to my normal blog content bonus, here’s an awesome selfie I took this morning. I am normally a terrible photographer, but I really like how this turned out(enough to post it to the world anyway!)
