War For Macragge - 745.M.41

War For Macragge - 745.M.41

This is the project I take to UKGD this year. It took bronze in Duel Category just behind Nigel’s incredible Giants fight. I wrote a Step by Step from A to Z about it, including near 300 pictures. You can find it here. Be carefull, it’s huge to load ^^ !

The real interest of making this mini was to succeed using a Carnifex for the Duel category, and more on the very small 50mm square base. I also wanted to do a more "Western like Duel" were the two fighters just look eyes into eyes before the battle.

UK Golden Demon 2009 have been again a very nice moment to pass.

Best of all was again the pleasure to met new people and well known people on stage, backstage and before D day.

Show was again very interesting, with minis like the Clockmaker, Giants duel, Tue Kaae Eldar “Ninja” Dreadnought, Rune LOTR entry and so more that it would be too long to write it all.

See you all I hope in 2010 !


Voici le projet que j’ai emmené cette année au Golden Demon Anglais. Il a prit le bronze dans sa catégorie, juste derrière l’incroyable duel de Géant de Nigel Carman. Pour toutes les personnes intéressées, j’ai rédigé un pas à pas de A à Z le concernant, incluant près de 300 photos. Vous pouvez le trouver en cliquant ici, mais attention, page lourde a charger ^^ !

Le véritable intérêt de cette pièce fut de réussir à caser un Carnifex dans la catégorie Duel, majoritairement remplie de piétons se battant l’un contre l’autre. Le fait donc de passer sur un gros monstre me semblait intéressant, surtout en devant réussir à le faire tenir sur un socle de 50mm. Je voulais aussi réaliser une sorte de dédicace à tous les Westerns Spaghettis qui ont pu me bercer, dans lesquels les deux adversaires se complaisent dans d'intenses regards les yeux dans les yeux, juste avant de dégainer.

Le GD Anglais a encore était un moment des plus agréables à passer, surtout via la rencontre des gens avant, pendant et après l’évènement. Bref à tous ceux qui hésitent encore, franchissez le pas !

Wow, I had to pick up my jaw from the ground! this is amazing work. It looks like someone took a picture of a real battle. I really dig the blues and the colors on the Carnifex! Great work man!

A real Masterpiece! A dramatic and intense scene for a great technical realization. Pose and tones of the Marine give a great feeling of charisma, while the colour choice of the Carnifex increase sense ot terror and danger. Absolutely fantastic (and wonderful step-by-step tutorial). Absolutely 10!

Really fantastic and larger than life paintjob! I especially love the paintjob on carnifex. And the step-by-step was really a pleasure to study. Thanks for that. It's a shame that it only took bronze. It is of a Slayer Sword quality. Bu GW guys have their issues about what fits to what category I guess. I can understand that, although I find all that categorization rubbish. It is the paintjob that should matter. Anyway, congratulations for inspiring all of us!
