ok everyone Ashton sells himself short on this one, when it originally came to me it was a mess, the last owner painted it using Testor model paints or some crap, he cleaned it and turned out this amazing piece to lead my Eldar army.

If you need work done this is the guy, thanks for everything

Nice.
Personal references are the BEST!


Nice looking model, too.

Just got the model today so update everyone. I think anyone that reads this needs to have Ashton paint at least 1 model of your army, this gentleman is one of the most amazing artists I have seen. These pics don't come close to doing it justice, I have multiple 1st place models from and judged contests at a few different conventions and shops, this is without a doubt the best single model I have come across and I am pleased as can be that its at the head of my Eldar Army.

Thank you again for an amazing job Ashton, cant wait to have you do more.

I found this goodie to for everyone to see, here is the before pic

I totally agree.. that was a mess prior by far.

I have one Ashton model myself.. and am very very torn about it. I love it, and want to use it in my AVPDWSF, but doing so would potentially harm it.. so I continue to waffle..
2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

If you don't have your Location listed in your User Control Panel, why not take a second and update it? It will let your trading partners know where you are from the beginning.

I use the Unofficial Porkuslime Trading Guidelines - if you have way less refs.. you ship first.

Folks I am awaiting a ref from.. Zack

I like my army idea better. I'd have Ashton paint it, for sure! LOL
