After a 6 year hiatus I decided to do a little bit of model making and painting. I had previouslycollected Warhammer products, worked for the company and sold painting comissions under the DiStudios name. I only really play the game once a month as my true passion is for Anime and Anime figure collecting.
Once an avid Warhammer collector I moved in 2003 to Privateer Press’s Warmachine favouring the unique look of Steam Punk imagery. In recent years however, I tend to pick up what I like the look of as I feel it gives me more motivation to produce individual works as opposed to full armies. This gallery will have a nice mixture of all my works from a variety of manufacturers.
Enjoy the figures and naturally feel free to comment
You can generally find me lurking on the Privateer Press forums under the name: Butcherofkhardov! 2010 sees the release of Warmachine MKII and while I may have put down my brushes on the majority of my work, you can pretty much expect more Warmachine stuff to feature here! I have only ever collected the Khador faction but you may find the odd Mercenary unit being added over time. With MKII now officially released (2010) I am looking forward to adding some of the new and very impressive plastic warjacks to the collection.
Warhammer 40,000 has had the biggest influence in my life as a hobby, I fist started in 1988 when I got a set of RTB01’s as a gift from my parents, at a rough guess this would be my 22nd year of collecting. For those who want to know what Warhammer is (and what it used to mean to me) watch the video below.
The sad thing is that despite the time spent collecting and my 6 years working in the company I have no army to show for. The last time I painted a full army was in 2000 (World Eaters) but since then Games-Workshop have not been able to re-capture my enthusiasm in their product. I do sometimes pick up the odd figures to paint here and there but never in the quantities required to play a game.
PRE HERESY DARK ANGELS
PRE HERESY DEATH GUARD (coming soon)
This is a very new company having formed Winter 2009, it is a fresh and genuine set of Anime based wargames miniatures which has generated a great deal of interest in early months. Now working on their third figure I expect this company to continue producing unique and well themed figures in the future. I have decided that I will not be personally painting this range as I just don’t have the time to do a good job (too many photos that need doing!). All painted figures will be appropriately attributed to the artists that work on them.
