Customized Masada AEG Airsoft Rifle

Joshua customized his Masada Adaptive Combat Weapon System Airsoft AEG Rifle. He belongs to a team that plays regularly at Steel City Airsoft in Bridgeville PA.

He started with adding the "olive green" inserts..

then moved on to a stenciled logo on the stock.

As always, the lad did an awesome job!

Photoshop fun with Warhammer 40k miniatures!

Just a quick post on Photoshop fun because its been a while.

Joshua recently finished painting a Warhammer 40k Orc Warboss and we thought a nice photo of him in an environment would be groovy. We played around with three different images and settled on this one for the finished photo.

OK, here is the photo of the figure Joshua painted...
and here is the photo of "Urban ruins" we found via the internet. I'd give credit if I remembered where it came from!

We used the image adjust, "levels" to set the mood and then used the "Burn" tool in order to add the proper shading to the warboss. All in all the finished piece only took 30 minutes and most of that was outlining the warboss.

There is a blog post featuring the Orc Warboss on Battleground Hobbies blog with lots of images of Josh's work for you to check out!
