About Me

Hey there, as you can see this is blog is all about gaming. And that's what I've been doing for pretty much all of my life. Currently I'm completely enveloped in Warhammer 40,000 and I'm breaking into the new Warhammer Fantasy system with the release of the new 8th edition.

Follow me as I build new armies, find newer and better ways to destroy my enemy, learn more about the rules, and just complain about the things that don't go my way :)

Walker Model Contest: Other Participants



Hey Everyone, as promised here are some of the pictures from the event. I think I arrived to late to get all of the participants. I think there is maybe 2 or 3 missing but this will give you an idea of how talented the players are up here in Dallas.

I've Blurred out the names of the participants to respect there privacy but my silly picture phone seems to have done ok in taking pictures this go around.



This Wraithlord ended up getting runner up. It has some great blending and an ivory/wood feel. Also the designs on the head were hand painted and look extremely good. Probably the best piece I've seen him do.



I really loved the wet blood skin texture on this one. as well as the feel and look of the metal. It's a scary beast and I'd hate to see it on the other side of the battle field.



Looks like a mean Venerable Ultramarines Dread. That gaunt never stood a chance. I particularly like the wood work on the base, it came out very well.



These two were nice too, the bottom Orc dread could've used some base work but it was fun and colorful.

The top one was a possessed sentinal, there was a lot of conversion work to it and I thought it looked quite awesome.

  3. Thanks, the Dread was pretty cool. I think the last time was beasts or something like that. I would've loved to have done it but I think I was getting ready for BolScon at the time.

    I can't wait for the next one, really gives an incentive to do a good job and paint something up fancy.

    Cool Links, hope you can make it out to the XMax Tournament.
