About The Vanus Temple

Welcome to The Vanus Temple!

I’m Tim Davis (Dezartfox), a full-time Commission Painter and Web designer from the UK.

I’ve been collecting and painting GW models since I was 11 years old, when I used to attend a small gaming club.
I’ve been active in the online community for many years, most noticeably for the Vassal 40k project that I ran for over 3 years. During that time I created a lot of the artwork that is still used in the game. I’ve also made various graphics for many sites, such as Heresy Online and their Daemon Adoptables.

I used to regularly enter tournaments (or gaming weekends as they’re now known) and I’ve won my share of Best Painted Army awards, nominations as well as 1st place trophies. These days I don’t game as much and spend most of my time painting commissions. I try to attend a tournament at least once a year with some friends though, which allows me to paint my own models rather than other people’s!

I’m always striving to improve my techniques and whilst I don’t comment on other blogs that often I do follow over 250 different sites!

TVT has had many different themes and has evolved over the years it has been active. It was even part of my main web design project during University. I’m always trying to improve the site, so if there’s anything you’d like to see feel free to contact me!

    You really ought to bring back Vassal 40k man. It was epic and no one minds tweaking it in game to play. it took me ages to find the Module to downlaod again!

    at least put a link for the download back up or something. Please? 😀

    Yeah, I second that, I was just going to download vassal and the 40k module again, and I'm forwarded here, and no vassal40k module.

    What happened?

    We were shut down by GW, we saw it coming and expected it a lot sooner really! I also had University looming so couldnt carry on the project, with me being the main artist the project would have halted anyway!
