Ork Bust

I finished this bust the night before the Australian Golden Demon finals! I entered it in the Open Category, which is the only category you can enter on the day. It didn't place, but it was fun to paint.

OzPainters has compiled a list of results and winners from the 2008 Australian Golden Demon.

Ork Kommandos

Firstly, thanks to Sebastian for taking some really good shots of my unit! In fact I am going to steal the photo as the first in this thread.

I actually started this unit back in June, I was planning on entering them at GDLA. Unfortunately, due to the excitement of being on holidays, I didn't get a chance to finish them off properly. So I decided I would enter them back in Australia instead.

The conversions have been kept to a minimum - only a few weapon and hand swaps (I didn't like the hand weapons, so I turned them into stikk bombz, and replaced two of the hands with those from the plastic ork boyz).

There are so many little areas I could have improved on, in particular I think I over-did the weathering in some parts and not enough in others. I also found weathering the Dark Angel green a lot tougher than weathering the red - probably due to my colour selections. There are also a number of areas where the painting could have been a bit sharper and crisper - in particular, the …

MOAB 2008

Rob, Sebastian, Paul and I ran the MOAB painting competition. Congratulations to all the winners, entrants and others who have contributed their time to make this event happen. Secondly, thank you to the sponsors: Shadowforge, Asmodee Editions, Maidenhead Miniatures, Derivan and Mainly Medieval for providing the prize pool, trophies and certificates!

We have a list of winners and photos at OzPainters.

Rob brought in his pirate town display which really livened up the display cabinet! We need to plan something even bigger for next year!

Games Day LA 2008

Congratulations to Todd Swanson for winning the Slayer Sword! I had a fantastic time at the Demon Lounge catching up with the US painters, and a few visitors from Europe too. Although I didn't place, I was really happy to make finalist with my Orc boss in Warhammer Fantasy Single - it was a really tough category, and as you can see in GW's coverage, the winners were all fantastic.

Pretty much finished with this one for a friend, but I'd like to hear feedback since I have a few other unpainted wolfen to do in the future. So this was both a bit of practice and also a semi-commission.

I did something a bit different with the base, and actually did it all up with flock and stuff first, and then undercoated and proceeded to paint it it. I like the effect of painted flock, think I'll do this more in the future.
