The orange dragon I have spent a couple of months painting live on Sunday evenings during the Warhamster stream was entered into my local Warhammer stores November competition “Monsters”. And it managed to rack up an impressive number of votes. In fact, enough to win.
As it was the first time I have ever entered any of my work into competition I am very happy, and even amazed at its success. It was a public Facebook vote, people just had to “Like” the picture of the model they, well, liked.
It meant I came home at the end of the month with a “Golden Grot” and as far as I can tell, the chance to call myself an award winning model maker. 😉
Thank you to all who voted, I didn’t get a chance to read my prepared speech when I collected my prize this morning but rest assured it would have been epic.
I shall enter again later in the year, when the category and the store are ready for the massive Baneblade project. And after I have finished it!
After a busy week of models and partworks I’ve taken a few days off of Modelmaking and gone back to the xbox.
I’ve finished the new Star Wars game, and just started ‘Control’, a similar sort of thing but grounded in the real world. Although it’s a real world with some sort of alien invasion/ paranormal/ superpower thing going on.
I’ll be playing that for a few more days and will get back to the bench at the weekend. Honest.
There’s still “An Evening with Everyone” on Thursday, come join in when I post the link on my Facebook page just before the show!
If you missed last nights premier, where were you? It was fun! I do occasional premieres on my YouTube channel, it’s always nice to be able to chat to people as they watch for the first time.
The video is still available to watch HERE, although you won’t get any reply if you type anything…..
The video is the first in a new series of making the Warhammer 40k Baneblade. A huge tank thing. Of course I’m not going to paint it in normal, boring colours. As a Warhamster thing it has to be basically orange. And I may have made a mistake in suggesting it would be interesting to have a try at digital camo…..
Keep an eye on my channel for the series, I’ll be releasing videos throughout the build!
