Erm, you realize that his whole army is posted in the showcase thread... right?
Oh yeah, I could tell you who most of the entrants are, but the whole point is to at least try and keep it anonymous .

All good entries, although i didn't find making a decision too hard.

Good Luck to all.

That was incredible! The entries started off fantastic, and then pretty much stayed fantastic as I scrolled down. I would have loved to have two votes here, but oh well. Some great paint techniques on those nids. Well done everybody.

This is some seriously stellar work. I can see why there isn't a Novice/Master split here, and not just because of the low number of entries!

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Well that was a little trick I came up with a few years ago with some Star Wars minis. I need to make some force lightning for a Sith Lord, so I experimented a little and came up with this technique.

Basically I took a plastic bottle (1.5 liter Pepsi special)

I cut the top and bottom off with an exacto knife and the sliced the rest in half. I got a sharp pair of scizzors and proceeded to cut the plastic into strips. Once I had my strips ready, I got some warhammer glue and some super glue accelerator. I twisted the strips into jagged looking lines and glued them together at various points. To make the strips stiff I gave them a coat of glue and sprayed them with the accelerator for an instant bond.

After I had my shape finished, I took a blue sharpie marker and ran it over the edges aiming for about 50% coverage. Afterwards I slopped some watered down white paint on the bolts and ran them between my fingers to spread out the paint. Then I took some ardcoat and went over the white paint so it wouldn't be flat looking.

From there I just shoved them into the Prime's back and glued them in place. I filled the spines up with glue and painted it white and blue so I wouldn't have a dark spot down in the spine.

Ideally you could make some really nice looking lightning this way, especially if you add a lot more forks in the lightning by using smaller pieces.

The bolts couldn't withstand a fall to the ground, but the great thing is they can be easily repaired with more glue!

Is that a cash prize just for miniwargaming or actual money?
