Hi all

Challenge 2: High Elf Prince On Griffon....Sort Of....

Hey all, today I post my (sort of) finished mini in the second Blackmane Vs Zebulon challenge. Whilst I think Blackmane has gone for the Elf approach to the Griffon, I couldn't let up the opportunity to give my Skaven a bit of a style kick and I went to town on the mini... so with out further adoo...

Blackmane & Zebulon Versus Challenge 2: High Elf on Griffon Update

HI all.

Today I have a quick update on the 2nd Blackmane vs Zebulon challenge. Today while I was talking to Zebulon, he asked for an extra day for the challenge. Been the kind hearted, all round nice guy that I am, (I can hear Zebulon laughing) I agreed on extending the deadline by a day.

So the deadline will now be Moday the 15th of August at 5pm. A poll will be added once pictures of both models are up and voting will be for one week until the following Monday.

On a side note my High Elf on Griffon is going well so far. The griffon is all done and now I'm just working on the High Elf. He's about half done as I write this. I'm happy so far with how he's going and I can't wait to get him finished and to see what Zebulon has done with his.

Well thats all for this short update. Thanks for reading.


Ultarmarines Captain

Hi all

Today I bring some pictures of an Ultramarine Captain that I bought and have been painting up for Zebulon (aren't I nice? lol). Anyway after a fair while I've finally found the time over the past few days to get the model finished.

So how did I come to get my hands on this model in the fist place. Put simply I saw it in a shop that sells quite a lot of 2nd hand models. Sometimes something rare will show up, such as this captain which I'd never seen before. Seeing it was an Ultramarine Captain I kinda new I'd end up getting it for Zebulon. So a c couple of days later I went back and bought it. I then stripped it down (it was an awful paint job), and got it ready to paint.

And so here we are with some pictures of a new model for Zebulon.

Blackmane & Zebulon Versus Challenge 2: High Elf on Griffon

Hi all.

Today I come with news of mine and Zebulon's next Vs Challenge. The first challenge was to paint up the finecast chaplain. Our next one is to paint up the high elf on griffon that is part of the Island of Blood set. The format is pretty much the same as last time. We have a set period of time in which to paint up the model in question as well as make any changes that we want to make. Once the time is up we will then each put up a post with pictures of our finished models at which point a poll will be added and then its up too you, the readers, to choose the winner of the challenge.

The start date will be Saturday the 6th of August at 9am GMT. The finish date will be Sunday the 14th August at 5pm. The poll will open once pictures of both models have been displayed. The poll will be open for one week.

With less than 13 hours to go before then next challenge starts I have to admit I'm quite excited abot this one. While I enjoyed the first one (winning was a bonus), I didn't have to really push my paintinng skills much. This time however the light colours of the high elf will prove a challenge as I'm not great at painting them. There's also the Griffon to consider. I've never really painted a beast/monster before so it should prove interested.

With that I'm going to busy myself with some other bits until I start tomorrow. As always thanks for taking the time to have a look.
