This isn't your usual commission. 

As many of you are aware, I run one to one online painting masterclasses (details here if you would like to apply), through which I met a gentleman who lives in New Zealand. His brother was getting married in the UK, so what better gift could a sibling (and best man) give than a God Machine painted by his own hand? I set aside three days to complete the project and have me guide him through the process of painting such a large scale miniature, tutoring him on real metallics, heat warping effects and freehand litany design. 

Unfortunately the bellicose spirit of the War Hound overwhelmed the best man at the speeches and he ended up screaming 'FOR THE EMPEROR' at a room full of bewildered guests. Don't worry, he wasn't embarrassed, the Nuptias Imperator D plated them off the board.

Many happy returns to the newly Wed couple and the brother who travelled around the world for a panting lesson! Thanks for the socks and the scarf I have now stolen.
