Cyclops Hunter

Well I'm trying to keep up the momentum so here comes another custom...

This guy is a custom Teddy Troop, a Cyclops Hunter and an unintentional homage to to every ones favourite GM soldier "Rogue Trooper"

Better pics to follow at some point when he's clear coated.


"cyclops hunters often wear the eyes of their other prey around their necks, they believe this gives them an advantage over their mono-eyed game. The more eyes the better right?"

By Demons Driven

Nothing for months and then two posts in a day!

Exciting news as my Heavy Metal Qee is finished, the full scoop has been posted on The Heavy Metal Qee Project home page so here is the info for all of you to see.

My Qee is is almost named after the Pantera song "By Demons be Driven" as a little homage to one of my favourite metal bands and here is the back story. 

BY DEMONS DRIVEN

As the year 2012 approached many world leaders began to see this as an opportunity to unify and subjugate their people and began a process they called the readying in which they attempted to rid the world of anything they saw as a threat to their power. Using the Christian cults as semi-legal vigilante groups to round up and eliminate anything they saw as an affront to God they hoped to rid the world of people who did not fit with their world vision and used the excuse that they were delaying the wrath of God to justify this.

Artists, Protest groups and Musicians of all kinds along with many others were placed into prisons and left to rot; the world leaders thought they had won. The remaining population would do anything their leaders asked, after all they had been saved from the fiery judgement of God.

Then came new years eve 2011, midnight saw the sky turn red and the seas boil.

God spoke to the people of earth, he told them they had wronged him greatly with their actions and that he had thought forgiveness was a right for all his creations but this was obviously not the case. He told them he had given up on earth, that he would give it willingly to Lucifer to do with as he pleased.

The prisons where so many had died began to twist and contort, their metal frames formed animalistic bodies hundreds of meters tall, then the metal began to crack, splinter and break away. Where the metal once was there was now pulsating flesh, the bodies of the dead had merged into abominations.

These where the wrath of God and the children of Satan filled with the fury of the dead and by demon's driven.








Be sure to head over to the Heavy Metal Qee website for some extra pics as well as pics of all the other entry's for the show by some fantastic artists.

Big thanks to Daniel Perry for organising the show and letting me be a part of it.

I know I haven't been around much lately...

It is with a new found respect for the blogger's of the world that I post this on my woefully neglected blog.

I have been busy tho (not just slacking I promise) and so today I thought I would present to you at least one of the fruits of my labour.

Prepare for a terrible pun as I present to you...

Crocnan the Barbarian!

WIP Mad scientist

Here is a little more progress one of my Munnys, I am currently working on some projects which I cant quite show yet (one is know but the other is new, secret and super exciting) and I am using any left over apoxie on this guy so he is slowly coming together.

I don't think I have too much left to do one this guy before paints.

WIP trio

so I've had the three guys below in progress for what seems like an eternity but I'm slowly making headway with them and who knows I might just finish them in 2011, each of these guys has quite a lot of work needed but they are getting there.
