Weekend of the Weird

Last week, a coworker of mine named Jay picked up a crazy cool looking toy by a local designer (motleymiscreations) at Emerald City Comicon and brought it into the office. Somehow it came up that I should paint it, and I jumped at the chance. I don't do too many toy repaints, but this one just screamed for a lick of paint.

Robo-rabbit-pig-undead Action Monster Go!
This thing has such a 70's alt comic vibe and was a ton of fun to  paint.
Love the exposed spinal column on this thing.
What's really cool about this model is that the arms and head are held in place with strong
magnets. I hope the artist makes some alternate heads or arms for a whacky line.
This thing was a crazy amount of fun to paint and I'm really pleased with the results. Jay digs it a lot as well, which is what's most important at the end of the day.
I also managed to finish up some Hired Guns for my  buddy Aeryn (who you can find on the net at, so he can add some extra muscle to his Cawdor gang in Necromunda. These were great models to paint, but I'm still not sold on the idea of resin models for human-sized gaming models. The brittleness spooks me. 

Some bad hombres ready to fight for creds and a swig of Wildsnake.
Gimp? Deepsea Diver? Blacksmith? You decide.
The Hunchback of Necro Dame.
She will cut you. Bad.

And finally, I got a little more done on my Kharadon Overlords Arkanauts. Still a few left to do, but they should be finished up this week. 

Good for hauling cargo or poking a fool, the Skypike is a staple of the Arkanauts.

Sky Dorf Assault Cannon is ready to rock.

Ive still got two more regular dudes and the officer to paint on these guys, they I'm going treat myself to a character in a
top hat...

All in all, a pretty productive week even if most of these stuff is making its way to the shelves of other people!
