    Great work there, Tunney. Love BB teams! Nice marines too.

    This was my miniature for the 20 year challenge on the Eavier Metal group. This miniature is very much my Everest. I've had it since I was about 10, I painted it once (very badly) then (sadly no pictures survive!) and when I retook the hobby up 4 years ago it was my second miniature to paint. I stripped off the old paintjob, got about 60% in and stopped. He's sat on my desk since waiting for the day. Rather than strip it and start for a third time I decided to try and save the paintjob and see how much I'd learnt in the last 4 years. I modified nearly every area and finally he's finished. Included a couple of pictures of the 'before' stage so you can see what it came from!

    Yeah, very cool. Could be super handy in improving painting skills.

    Here are some of my Relics models I painted a while back.
    Nuem and Orcnar factions.

    Looking great! I never heard of Relic - will check them out. The 2nd guy from top reminds me of a Bioshock Big Daddy.

    Yeah not familiar with them but they look pretty cool.

    I was on a painting workshop last weekend with Alfonso 'Banshee' Giraldes, one of the best painters in the world. Amazing experience, if anyone gets a chance to go on one I highly recommend.

    Here is the sketch on the anonymous bust (still far from finished, haven't touched the eyes or hair yet really)

    And here's me thinking of buying Blood Bowl and painting the figures after 25+ years of not painting or playing GW games and something like this pops up
    I feel really sick :(

    That is a work of art.

    You're clearly a talented painter, but I'd love for you to step out of your comfort zone more and try different schemes or painting styles.

    Thanks!
    Yes this is something I really need to try. I actually have a Stormcast army which I'm painting up so once that's done and out the way I may have a go at some random miniatures.
    I have a small selection of 'death' faction minis so I'm tempted to buy Nagash and give that a shot....or maybe a random mini with a lot of flesh as I've not painted flesh before.
