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!

Finecast is the newest ‘big thing’ from Games Workshop. In essence, they are replacing their metal minis with a custom mix resin. The new material holds very sharp detail, is springy for durability, and cleans up really easily. Advantages aside, it is actually more expensive than the metal figures, which is absurd.
Eyriss is an elven Mage Hunter in the WARMACHINE universe. She is a popular character and often-used model due to her anti-magic utility. Unfortunately the original Eyriss model is pretty much awful, so I never bought one. I newer special release Eyriss model was released more recently which looks much better, but this has been my Eyriss model from the start. It is a conversion based off a Reaper mini, converted using Reaper weapons, as well as removing some ‘evil’ stylings from the armor. This figure is pretty old at this point, but was a new highpoint in my blending and color techniques. The face is still one of my best, and the custom base was alot of fun to put together.
This is a squad of Blood Angels Assault Marines I finished not too long ago for my Warhammer 40k army. For those of you that might not know much about Warhammer 40k, Space Marines are genetically engineered super soldiers, and the Blood Angels are some of the fiercest fighters among them. I try to aim for a more realistic battle-hardened look to my minis, and these guys were the first group to receive some new ideas I’d gotten from my work on larger scale models. These are plastic models, except for the Sergeant, who is metal, and all of them have some GreenStuff putty details added, mostly from press-molds of details I made from other models.
