Call to Action: Buy Some Models, Help My Friend Pay For Chemo

The title says it all, but I'll elaborate...

My friend has terminal brain cancer. Same kind as The Tragically Hip lead singer. He's got a best before date. Could be 1 to 3 years. He's fighting like hell, but chemo is expensive. Even in Canada a lot of medical care is not covered. We started a fundraiser for him here:


The union we work for will match any money we raise up to $5, 000. I would like to ask for your help, but you don't know him and we can't always just throw money at every cause we see. 

So what am I suggesting?  Here's what I will do...

Buy any of my minis for sale here:


From now until the new year, for every model you buy from me, I will donate every penny to help my friend pay for his cancer treatment AND match that donation from my own wallet! You get some nicely painted minis and my friend gets a few more moments with his family to leave them with memories instead of a crap ton of debt. If you've been watching and waiting to buy my minis now is a great time to help out!

Cheers,
Neil "Zab" Szabo

WIP: Ahsoka OSL & Shadow

Now I want to protect the sabers and her beautiful eyes. This is a scary process because I am covering a lot of my previous work with thin layers of OSL and shading. Thin paint, low PSI and many layers so I don't obscure all my hard work - just most of it on the shadowed side o_O

WIP: Ahsoka Sabers & Base

Preshades and glazes for the base - nothing fancy - it will be covered by the OSL and shadow. Again, yay wet palette you made that easy!

WIP: Ahsoka Face & Texture Sketching

WIP: Ahsoka Tano Disney Infinity

Ahsoka and her display base. I may enter her into the MV contest, but the pressure of it almost made me quit before I started o_O  Not sure contests are the right motivation for me :(

WIP: Blurry Marines

Oh god, yep WIP cam is dead. I think I have to start using my iPhone now. That is a slippery slope that leads to social media and the death of the blog though...

WIP: The Agent of Chaos' First Diorama

So the little one had a school project and need to repaint a few cats to make them look like young lions. I primed them but she took over after that I just handled the hair dryer to speed things up for her!

WIP: Loka Blue & Red Rooks

Still keeping it simple :)


These two are my favs so far :)

!!!!DON'T FORGET ABOUT THESE RAFFLES- ON UNTIL MAY 14th!!!!

Don;t just say things like "I won't be at CMON Expo" or "There's not much of a chance"

• The winner does NOT need to be present at any event. The NOCF will ship ANYWHERE in the world with a valid mailing address. 
• We only have 500 tickets each for these raffles, meaning that the purchase of one tickets means you have a 1 in 500 chance of winning. Buy 5 tickets and that chance goes to 1 in 100. Pretty swiftly everyone with a few tickets is in with a really good chance.

The most important thing, however, is not the chance to win beautifully painted models or a wonderfully valuable collection of cards. It is that this money raised goes to helping one of the greatest humanitarian efforts of all time, Doctors Without Borders.

So please, get in on 'em!

Art Break: Watercolors

 Just a quick break from minis. This year I'll be slowing down a bit as I struggle with depression and burn out on all fronts. Every now and then you'll get some filler posts like this or I may even miss a week. I have to accept that I am human and have limits - man, I hate saying that -_-

On Display: Historical Mini - Zouave

 Good from far, but far from good. The limited palette of blue, red, yelllow, black, white and brown made this one tough -_-
