Weekly Update 1//9/2017

Hello and here is the first Weekly Update for 2017.
Had a great beginning to the new year. A fellow painter, (@Goblins_Mordor), that I have met through Twitter has challenge me to paint 500 miniatures for the year of 2017!
  Challenge Accepted!!!
What a great incentive to paint a lot of models. At the time of this posting I am at 15/500 models.
 These will all get there own posting soon. But just wanted to show off what I have done this week. 
First up some Commission Pieces.
Malifaux Bayou Gremlins
Orphelia LaCroix
 Raphael LaCroix
 Rami LaCroix
  Francois LaCroix
 Two Young LaCroix
 Bayou Gremlins
Bushido Miniatures 
Winter Ninjas
 This was a Personal Project that I worked on in between commission work.
Reaper Miniatures
I have more Bayou Gremlins and Bushido Ninjas on my painting desk that I will be finishing up later this week. 
Also a quick update on my rather large personal project.
I have looked at all the pieces for Smaug. Then I gently re-wrapped him in his bubble wrap and put him back in the box for the time being.
This is going to take some time. But well worth it!
Stay Tuned for more updates.

A look back on 2016 and a look ahead to 2017

Happy New Year! 
I know I haven't been blogging for awhile. I post more on my Twitter (@holtminipaint) and Facebook pages. Because it is easier with my phone to take quick pics and post them. 
Well that is going to stop today! I may not post on my blog on daily basis. But I will start posting more often. More like a weekly update on Sundays. I have posted some recent commissions that I have completed and will be playing catch up within the next few updates.

Now onto the look back of 2016! The past year saw a lot of great things happening for my hobby and commission business.

I started taking on commission work in the Summer of 2015 (July). I was doing a few jobs for some friends and other gamers at the local game shops. As word spread, I got more and more offers to paint models for people. I decided to slowly build up my business by starting a Twitter and Facebook page. Started to post my work and more offers came in. I continued to paint commissions in my spare hobby time and worked a full time job. Well that worked fine for awhile. As the offers kept coming in and it seemed to be pretty steady and having many returning and happy customers. I decided to become a Full Time Commission Painter in September 2016.

It has been the best decision that I have done!
I have been able to paint some really great models and meet some wonderful people in the miniature painting community.

I painted 355 models over the year of 2016!
These are some of my favorites that I have painted in the last year. 
Knight Models: Batman Miniature Game
Suicide Squad: Killer Frost, Killer Croc, Deadshot, Copperhead, & The Riddler 
 Privateer Press Hordes
Legion of Everblight: Thagrosh, Prophet of Everblight
 Steamforged Games Guild Ball
The Fisherman's Guild: Kraken
 Dark Sword Miniatures Critters Collection
Penguin Thief for a Frostgrave Warband
 Wyrd Games Malifaux
Bayou Gremlins: Pigapult
 Privateer Press Warmachine
Protectorate of Menoth: Hand of Judgement Character Warjack
 Rackham Miniatures
Cadwe Assassin
 Fantasy Flight Games RuneWars Miniature Game
Rune Golem
 Fantasy Flight Games RuneWars Miniature Game
Skeleton Warrior on Carrion Worm
 Fantasy Flight Games RuneWars Miniature Games
Skeleton Warriors

I was very happy to have been able to work on the new RuneWars starter set for Fantasy Flight Games. I was commissioned to paint two sets for Demonstration (Demo) purposes at events and conventions. Looking forward to seeing more from this game in the coming months. 
2016 was a great and wild year! 2017 will be even better! 
I have a lot of great things planned. So please stay tuned and keep a look out on my own personal project for the year. 

  It's going to be Fantastic!!!!
