It’s been my pleasure to know James and his equally-talented better half, Cathy, for about fifteen years. Together we played Deadlands around the time James was contemplating moving from talented enthusiast to full-time miniatures painter. Since then, James has become prolific, often working 18-hour days, winning countless awards like a recent Gold Crystal Brush, assembling awe-inspiring display bases, and setting a new standard for painting figures in oils.
I’ve added a modest gallery of pictures and links. If you would like to have James paint a War Mage Diary figure for you, don’t switch pledges and give up your Early Bird status! Just add $149 to your current pledge and send me a note so I can manage expectations. James is as quick as he is talented (astounding really) but even he needs to sleep on occasion!
My immense thanks to James for lending his talents to The WitchBorn!
Yes, this is a Bones miniature! Notice the hieroglyphic base. Just amazing.
