Grody Shogun Camo Monster   Leave a comment

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.

Marusan Ganime   Leave a comment

I picked up a pair of blank grey-green Marusan Ganimes from GrumbleToy a while back for my brother and myself.  Ganime is the crab monster from the classic Space Amoeba film.  I wanted to do something funky to get back in the airbrushing groove, so I painted the pair with blue shells like lobsters and crayfish sometimes have.

Chilled Garamon for Gamaniacal at FOE   1 comment

FOE Gallery is hosting an awesome themed show in February.  Mike Nordstrom is undoubtedly the world’s leading Garamon expert and aficionado, and has curated a show that is going to knock socks off.  I was thrilled to get asked to participate alongside guys like Mark Nagata, Bob Conge, and Koji Harmon.  I went for a realistic finish rather than Monster Kolor craziness, going full ‘model kit’ style on this super detailed sculpt.  Show opens February 10th in Northampton!

Kaiju Kaos Monster Diorama Kompleted!   1 comment

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!

Killer Culture Microcultures debuting at FOE!   1 comment

Debuting at the FOE Monster Invitational is the newest Killer Culture release!  As fast as the  Joint Killer Culture Defense Force (JKCDF) can develop new weapons to combat the Killer Culture, new threats seem to emerge.  These new Microcultures are just as fearsome and dangerous as their larger kin, but capable of swarming en masse!

As part of the Monster Invitational Show, Jim (FOE’s esteemed owner) was looking for smaller goodies from the contributors that could be up at the counter looking pretty.  I’ve had some of these Micros sculpted for a while now, so the opportunity seemed perfect to get a couple more done and get a new mold made!  I got some nice feedback on the prototype Micro featured in the TAG Battle Pack, so it seemed like good timing to get cranking on more.  These guys will be available individually for just $5 exclusively at FOE, show opening July 8th.  For $5 you get a one-inch resin booger sprayed with pretty Monster Kolor.  As an added bonus and some play value, each Micro also features a small rare-earth magnet in the base, so you can stick them to your fridge, desk, pet robot, or wherever!

With Wraith Pheyden for scale.  Lots more pics after the jump!

Killer Culture at New York Comic Con!   Leave a comment

It’s super last minute, but I managed to squeak a little painting in, and will have the first set of version 2 Escherichia killers with me at NYCC on Saturday!  Along with a much cleaner and more consistent mold, E.killer v2 introduces a new feature to the Killer Culture line.  Killer Culture is now magnetic!  Using rare earth magnets allows for much more durable and consistent articulation, as well as some interesting possibilities down the line.

Reviews of the first E.killer also pointed out that the base was something of a weak spot in the original tooling.  I agreed, and made a major revision to the base part, and the figures now have a nice, bold, and simple logo, which I’m really happy with.

Figures will be $35, and I will be carrying them around with me on Saturday.  I’ll be around the Onell booth many times during the day, as that’s where some of the coolest artists will be!  I got a taste of what Onell is bringing to the show last night, and it is not to be missed.

New Culture Sighted   1 comment

The Bureaucratic Agency for Killer Culture Tracking, Analysis, Countering, and Killing (BAKCTRACK) received a partially scrambled transmission from a Joint Killer Culture Defense Force (JKCDF) task force in the field.  From what was recoverable, the JKCDF team responded to a distress call from a local microbial research laboratory.  The following image was received from the recon unit before the signal was scrambled.  BAKCTRACK scientists are analyzing the photo to determine the nature of this unknown monster, but it is clearly some new form of macrocellular menace.  Unfortunately, when JKCDF reinforcements arrived, the lab was burned to the ground with no survivors.  It appears the recon team initiated Class 9 containment protocols, which are only used in the worst contamination events.  Something clearly went wrong during the purge, however, and the recon team was overwhelmed.  Further investigation into this photo by BAKCTRACK experts will hopefully give us some insight into what new threat we are facing.  One thing we do know is that this new creature appears to be wielding something not of biological origin.  It appears the Killer Cultures are evolving, which can only be cause for concern.

E.killer Fant Art by Josh Bernard!   Leave a comment

I was greeted on Facebook with this fantastic surprise, a piece of painted E.killer fan-art by none other than my friend and digi-boss Josh Bernard, owner of CollectionDX.  You can check out more of Josh’s art on Quibx Blog.  Josh has an awesome metal album-art style with heavy black inking and a dark sensibility, and it really brings the E.killer to life!  Click the image for the full-size… it’s unreal.
