Despite collecting GW products for 27 years, I surprisingly have very little to show for it. After 6 years working for the company and discovering miniatures outside of the Citadel range, I found that most of the figures I had painted were for commission and that I had sold off most of my GW collections to finance other projects like Privateer, Rackham and Reaper . In 2009 I came back to the hobby due to the sudden popularity of Horus Heresy converting (pre-Forge World releases). As a result all of my old projects got packed away in boxes or labelled 'to sell' in order to finance this new venture. Below is a collection of figures I have painted from various systems over the years, showing the variety of my small personal collection and the evolution of my painting style as the years have flown by.





 
During Salute 2015 I finally succumbed to the amazing Norse figure range by Mierce Miniatures. The game is still in development, but for now I am content painting these amazingly detailed Dark Age Fantasy models.

In 2013, Prodos Games brought back the fantastic Mutant Chronicles universe to the table top, with their reboot Warzone: Ressuerection. As a long time fan of the background, I had to back the Kickstarter.

I started playing and collecting Warmachine when it first hit the U.K in the early 2000's. Khador immediately drew my eye and I amassed a collection of every single figure up until the introduction of their plastics. Sadly their plastic range did not agree with me and I got rid of the collection. However they remain some of my favourite figures of all time.

           
   


Below are some photos I rescued from my old website, there is quite a random selection in there, which in my eyes, shows how my painting has changed; more noticeably in recent years; as the decades have rolled by.

I have been a private commission painter since 2000, but up until now I have not had the facilities to showcase my work properly. So as of Winter 2015, I have been making a more concerted effort to take better photos and showcase the pieces I have completed both for private and corporate clients.
