It has been a while since my last update but since then I have started work on my most recent commission job. The commission is for a fully painting / assembled Stormclaw box set so I was more than happy to get to paint some Orks and Space Wolves. I decided to begin the project by painting the Warboss first. You can find some pictures of the nearly completed miniature below:

After completing my recent commission work I thought that it was probably about time that I start working on my own stuff again. I had converted an Ordo Machinum inquisitor but hadn't got around to painting him yet. So after finding a bit of free time I sat down and began to paint up the Inquisitor.

Over the weekend I made the finishing touches to a Chaos Chariot that I am painting as part of a commission. Now that the chariot is completed I can quite honestly say that I did enjoy painting this. A lot of long hours (as opposed to the normal length hours) went into this in order to ensure I got it just right.
What simultaneously made this project a joy to paint but also increased the painting time was the sheer variation of color and materials present on this mini. The silver areas were easy enough, they just involved a silver spray over the top of black primer. This was followed by a series of brown/black washes and a drybrush of Runefang Steel.
At this point I thought that as the bulk of the model had been finished I wouldn't have much more work to do, how wrong I was. As frustratingly slow as the going was the variation in color and techniques kept the painting interesting. I am especially proud of the red cape, this was achieved with a Dragon Red (Army Painter) base followed by Red Ink and Bloodletter washes to add definition.
I was thankful that my client opted for the Gorebeast over the Horses as I think the Gore beast looks fantastic. It took me a while to be happy about the skin however, but after numerous washes drybrushes and highlights I finally got what I was hoping for. My favorite thing about this model is the huge fore arms which I applied Blood for the Blood God to for that just 'just finished pulping someone look'.
Here are some pictures of the completed chariot which will be added to my Commission Portfolio soon.

It seems that most of my hobby time has been devoted to commission work recently, which is rather frustrating seeing as how I have quite a few Scions waiting to be assembled and painted. Saying that I am rather enjoying painting Eldar and Warriors of Chaos, having never collected these before it has been a good opportunity to paint some units I would have never normally had the chance to.
