This guy was a commissioned I finished up a few weeks back. The customer sent me a swatch of camo in the style he wanted, and I think I did a pretty good job of matching it. We settled on a flat finish and very technical ‘tight’ camo rather than the loosey-goosey airbrushed camo some other kaiju guys have coined.

Maschinen Krieger is a sci-fi universe created by Japanese modeler Kow Yokoyama. What started out as a bunch of groundbreaking kitbashed and scratchbuilt models because a modeling phenomenon that eventually turned into official resin and then injection plastic kits. The Falke Antigravity Armored Raider is a speedy attack vehicle that combines sleek curves with mechanical detail goodness. I was sent this Hasegawa plastic kit along with the matching set of figures and commissioned to make a maintenance diorama. The base is scratchbuilt by me.
Kaiju Kaos is a new 28mm miniature game by Bryan K. Borgman of Bailey Records. A number of smaller pewter and larger resin monster figures are available, but the game is also designed to allow kaiju collectors to use their own figures in the game. The Kaos Monster here is the flagship monster release so far, and Bryan contacted me to have me paint one. He wanted a crazy Monster Kolor sprayed figure to show off some of the crossover potential between kaiju stylings and his tabletop wargame. Tons more photos of the completed scene after the break!
The Res-Que Corps are a mercenary group known throughout the Glyosverse for their daring rescue operations.
This guy is a custom build that the commissioner wanted painted to look like the printing on money. The Big Brother head was sculpted and cast by Mag-Fitch over on the October Toys board and looks pretty cool.
This guy was the figure that started the Blue Squad idea. He’s some kind of cool alien, so he was commissioned to have a colorful MK-sprayed mushroom head like a Matango figure and then a flat color weathered suit. I figured if I was already painting some weathered figures, I oughta do a couple.
This is another commissioned custom build. The only input from the customer was shiny eyes, and maybe a desert theme, so I ran with that idea and practiced some weathering techniques. Really happy with this guy.
