Space Marine Squad GD Finalist

Well to those of you that might vaguely care I have still kept myself painting ( hold the Phone! I've been painting a Tank) but no photos of that yet! When digging around some old miniatures I realised most of them never had decent photos taken. As I had nothing better to do with my time, I whipped out my shiny new camera and had a session of sorts!

Got some new photos of my Marine Squad on CMON:

Nurgle Daemon Prince

Hi guys, Got another finished model to share with you. I really can't believe it that i managed to finish two models in a week! I really think thats a first for me! it seems that my more liberal and quick approach ( spending less time sweating about minute areas and applying global lighting to larger areas)   seems to be paying off , As again this guy took around 3-4 hours. 
It makes my laugh when I rummage through all my unfinished models, just how many I have to get through. Looks like I'll be keeping busy for some time. 
Like the previous daemon prince this guy is of no use to me and i just don't have the room so he's up for auction on ebay:

Daemon Prince Of Khorne

Perhaps it's the summer sweat keeping me up at night... but I been finding it hard to keep away from the brushes at night. Found this guy hanging around with just basecoats on. Couldn't resist giving him a little life. For me this was quite a quick job... around 4-5 hours which I was pretty pleased with. As it usually takes me years to complete a figure. As much as I liked to keep the little chap I have no use for him in my armies so am going to sell him on.  He is now up for auction on  ebay: 

Thanks !

[Commission] Warhammer Dragon

Why is time so cruel? Anyway this is my most recent commission completed for a previous client. I say recent I completed this about a month ago, But have only now find time to upload photos etc. This was a really enjoyable piece to paint, not only because it was such a nice model ( by the way sculpted by the client) but also it allowed me to rediscover my passion for painting miniatures. After a year of full time work, painting no longer seems a chore as it sometimes used. I began enjoying painting again like I used to when I first got into the hobby.

But Anyway enough of my elighthanment, At the end of the day the client was happy which made me happy and gave me a little extra motivation to get my painting back in the swing.

This was the testimonial for this commission:

"This is the third commission that I have asked Dylan to work on for me after the success of the previous commissions.  I like the way Dylan approaches the new projects he is open to suggestions and has good views of his own. We had several discussions on the new project over colours and how the final piece should appear. Dylan made a quick test to make sure the ideas would work colour wise before starting the project feedback was positive.  Dylan always takes stage photos and keeps in contact thought the commission which is always welcome. I’m very happy that our collaboration once again has been a total success. Dylan interpreted my thoughts perfectly. The finished commission was fantastic the attention to detail makes all the difference.  I’m very happy with my collaboration with Dylan and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dylan workmanship.  His approach, communication, and finished product is to be admired.
I look forward to working with Dylan again in the future. Thanks again Dylan nice work."
