How did I fare in these painting competitions? Well read on and you will find out.
The first load of entries below are from the various single miniature, engines, beasts and fortifications categories.
Feast your eyes on some of these beauties...
There were a fair amount of Heresy models that weekend and this one on the bike was particularly good, also note the awesome bloodthirster converted by a friend of mine on the right.
The poor Krieg Commissar is dwarfed in the land of converted daemon Princes.
My Aegis line and quadgun.
A really nicely painted and weathered storm eagle. This guys knows how to paint yellow.
If you've followed my blog before you will recognise this fellow!
Commissar Dave's Thunderbolt.
And now on to the nominated best armies. I got nominated and was up against some pretty stiff competition!
And so who won? I managed to get best fortifications (competition for it wasn't the toughest) in the individual categories, with the Imperial Fists Storm Eagle winning the vehicle category.
And best army went to... drum roll... The Praetorian IV Mechanised Infantry!
It makes my army 2/2 at Warhammer World Events so far. There is still clearly a great deal of love for the pith helmeted warriors of Praetoria. They should be returning for Throne of Skulls in January where they will be united with the Praetorians of a little known sculptor and painter called Col. Gravis...
This post has been an indulgence in photos, be sure to catch the final instalment of the Gaois Secondus Posts when I give you a few battle reports and let you know if the army lived up to its best in show on the battlefield!
