Thank you very much! I do my best to make each of the character miniatures something unique and special. If you have any questions or curiosity about my painting or sculpting methods feel free to ask and I will be glad to answer!
Veteran Captain Gillson, known as “The Bear of Terra,” has served as a captain of the Imperial Fists for years. He stands apart from many of the Imperial Fists by having a more gregarious nature than is considered the norm. As a fearless combatant, wielding a storm shield and master crafted thunder hammer, he strides into battle and sends the enemy cowering before him.
There are those among the Imperial Fists who have noted that upon being informed of his assignment to the crusade fleet he was annoyed, seeing the position as being sent as a glorified babysitter to a younger Chapter Master and less experienced captains, however as the fleet traveled onward He found himself as valued council and soon after friends with Chapter Master Lukas and Captain Dominus.
This is my version of Captain Lysander, converted to a pre heresy armor style and with a slight resculpt of the face based on a good friend of mine.
A bonus for today, the second of my Cataphractii conversion projects. This chaplain is coming together pretty well in my opinion, but I do still need to get a bit more work done on it as well as some gap fill and cleanup. I hope that you enjoy the glimpse into what I have on my desk!
I promised some work in progress, and let it be known that I do my best to deliver. I present to you a work in progress conversion of Captain Lysander to pre-heresy Cataphractii armor. I’m waiting on his arms at the moment, but I think that when they arrive from Ebay I’ll be ready to move forward.The hair and beard are based on a good friend of mine, the one who was the first, and one of the best game masters I’ve ever had the enjoyment of gaming with.
A battle report done via an online program, allowing me to play my Imperial Fists against a good friend in the next town over! If this is well liked then I may post more of these. Stay tuned though, as tomorrow I should have some awesome figures to show you all!
WHERE WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO VISIT ON YOUR PLANET?
I would most like to visit Stonehenge and Ludlow Castle, both have ancestral significance to me.
And now Commander Abel Horatius. Wearing a suit of finely made Cataphractii armor, commander Abel is known for unflinching resolve as well as the traditional distaste for retreat. He is remarkably level headed, and often is seen in council before the battle with his battle brothers, preparing to guide the men under his command to victory.

The first combat squad of my Imperial fists has been painted, I’ve got the second combat squad in progress now. Once I have two combat squads ready I will start working on the second five men for each squad. Each group one step at a time after all.
With as long as it has taken me to update, some people may have figured that I had vanished. Thankfully all is well, however I have started school once more and so my posts will unfortunately be slow in coming. Rest assured that I am still painting and modeling, I just don’t have too much time for it.

Another piece by the ever amazing Catokun. She captured a, dare I say it, beefcake version of my character amazingly. More or less that’s who I am, a guy who sits around painting little tiny dudes with a smile on his face. I’ve been thinking about a name for a small studio that I can actually call my work. Any suggestions?
