Default Local Painting Comp (Loadz of Pics!)

Recently there was a painting competition in one of the shops here in my area. (Well really this is one of the first few painting comp in my country)

Me and a couple of guys slug it out for a 3 week painting marathon to complete our entries.

Well I nabbed gold for both Single and Monstrous Creature categories, my pals won gold for squad, bronze for vehicle and single.

So here are the pics of the event.

Single Mini

My Gorbad Ironclaw


Converted Chaos Lord


Converted Cannoness


One of my friends Catachan 'Hard' Veteran (Pretty darn haaard...)


A nicely blended Alpha Legion (check out the shoulderpad freehand)


Fuzzy pic FTW! My friend's Librarian Terminator


Squad

Only two entries in squad but pretty darn awesome.

My friends heavily converted Black Legion Chaos Marines. He sculpted the base from scratch and he used some of my Cadians as dead bodies.








Cadian Conscripts painted in a communist China theme


Vehicle/Monstrous Creature

My Mumak of Harad, it's actually 99% complete. I'm still waiting for that Haradrim Command to arrive so I can apply the finishing touches.






I was up against this insanely freehand Wave Seprent, which I was sure that I won't survive the Vehicle/Monstrous category.






My pals Sentinel, stomping on a Khorne Bezerker.


A converted Lemen Russ, by using two Leman Russes and basically beefing it's size up.



Well it was a fun event and I meet a couple of new guys, including Jeff Brooks a former GW Manager. He enterd his amazing Alpha Legion marine Here's hoping of another painting competition in the not so far future of the 21st Century.

Wow, that's alot of really impressive models. That alpha legion marine is simply incredible. All of the entires are actually. I've seen that Wave Serpent before, I think on CMON but I can't remember for sure.

Your friend's Black Legion are really cool as well. I plan on using a similar look for a unit of DG chosen.

Thanks for sharing, +1 Karma!

But on the subject of the entries, they are all simply jaw-dropping. I love that Alpha Legionnaire, he&#39;s brilliant. And the Black Legion squad is awesome.

A incredible collections of models, all masterfully painted by their respective painters. ;D I think the models that caught my eye were the Cadian Conscripts painted in a communist China theme.
