    Thanks ischa, you know after the axe in germany i was actually sooo close not to take the dread with me to euromilitaire. but yeah, honestly i think so too =) like krulebear wrote, its f*cking cool to feel some vindication, this time in a competition that is 0% about luck and 100% about skill (unlike some another competition...)

    Milosh and Bailey, really hope you will make it someday, had been really cool to meet up. this was definitely not my last euromilitaire.
    it is kind of a big investment to travel across the pond though, but i hope to visit some competition in US too someday.

    Just catching up on some WIP threads.

    Shame to hear about your issues at the Ger:GD. I spoke to a friend up here in Aberdeen who is also one of the 'good painters' we get called, and I bumped into him after the day last year and he was raging, apparently a german guy entered 3 doombull\minotaur things and he has one gold at German GD many times but he didn't even get a finalist at this event and he was just angry that people putting in all this work don't even get recognised as 'in the running'.

    I was a bit mixed as my Duel piece that had the farseer and librarian with the lightning got comments all day from people as they were looking at it, not knowing I was the owner saying to their mates 'that's really clever, I love the robes, stands out well' etc, but didn't even get finalist. yet the eagle warrior space marine with a minor bent leg conversion on a standard 25mm base I made in about 4 days got a finalist pin??

    So I am a bit worried about this years squad entry as there are some flaws in my stuff, things like slightly rough on one leg and an odd join of a wrist to arm (finecast and repaired as much as possible before breaking the thing or ruining detail.) I am maybe being paranoid as everyone who has seen them say they are very good. I have tried to keep to GW style, i.e. crisp colours, basic shading but with edge highlight, a decent base with a story, not the square sort of block effect I did with duel last time.

    I just want to get finalist to know I am still producing good stuff, and any trophies would be amazing, but to come away with nothing after 2 months of work and putting in my all would make wanting to try again a bit hard.

    But we will see what sunday brings, you never know, it may just catch the eye for finalist and upon closer look may be considered for something more....or I am going home with lots of FW to cheer me up hehe.

    RMA; last year (and iguess years before, but last year was my only uk gd so far) especially the finalist-no finalist was totally upside-down. the load of entries was too massive i guess. i have to say, in germany they do a better job deciding finalists, mainly because there are much fewer entries. ah well, enough talking about stipid german gamesday. i got my revenge thats what matters

    yep 100 pages. ill be damned...

    well folks not much to share here atm, i am currently finishing off the last horror...


    some other news, i am going to the Hussar show in Poland in 2½ weeks, http://hussar.eu/ . Will be interesting as i never been in Poland. Although, this time i see little chance of winning anything - you cant participate with minis that already won gold/silver/brons anywhere else, which getting my choices pretty slim. have to take some from last years batch of minis- toad diorama and rataxes, and these pink horrors. ill do a try to paint a little grot tank also but not shure that will be possible in 2 weeks. anyway will be cool

    The horrors look great! Good luck at Hussar. Too bad you can't bring more of your work. That no previous medals rule is pretty strict. I've only seen it applied to related shows, never to all shows.

    ty bailey. well not really a fan of that rule even if i understand the meaning of it. as some of the top polish painters paint like one mini/day i can understand there is no problem, but i produce like one each month...

    been basebuilding a little, v0,5! this is going to be fun

    Ty folks! not having the time to make funny grots to the tank unfortunately as the show is in two weeks... but this thing shouldnt take that long to paint. just flat surfaces after all. some checks and stripes though

    done and done again with the horrors. i guess this make them more unified, and the centerpiece is the horror boss instead of that lousy crap sorcerer lol

    never going to paint another of these!

    As always, great painting work sir. I get absolutely astound by your banners.

    Wonderful shading on the horrors I particularly like the lower arms being a more uniform dark shade which makes it more realistic than if the whole thing was shaded with a similar light intensity. Any more work on the grot tank?

    *rubs dirt out of his eyes* What? It's october 2013? How did that happen?
    To jump straight in, great work on that grot tank. that base you're planning looks absolutely brilliant.

    Love it so far. The base is amazing too. Can't wait to see it painted up and all together.
