Ludwig Scwarshelm

We participated in a 40K Charity Apocalypse game and offered a certificate to be auctioned off to have a single miniature of your choice painted by us. This is the mini for that certificate painted to high tabletop standard.

Adepticon/Crystal Brush 2015

A bit late posting my exciting results from my first Adepticon convention to participate in the Crystal Brush painting competition. I entered several pieces that were all uncharted territory for me. Everything from making bases from scratch, to attempting water effects. Overall I am very pleased with the results. Most proud of winning Gold Manufacturers Award from Dark Age for my single figure entry called "Crimson Mother". Here are a few shots of my entries.

First is Ashan-tyr by Rackham. This piece was a total experiment in basing for me and I learned so much. The aluminium foil bricks seem to capture the ancient rustic ruin effect I was going for. Next time I may either place a larger figure on this size base or try to make it a bit smaller. I can't wait to try it again soon. I've put together a little basing tutorial that is up on the WGC at:

 Go check it out and let me know what you think. :)

 Here is another entry which is my tribute to M*A*S*H named "Goodbye Ferret Face". Base was completely scratch-built :)

Las Vegas Open and the Draconic Awards

Back in February I attended a great gaming convention and participated in the first year to offer support for the hobby side of wargaming. The WGC organized hobby classes and a painting contest as part of the Draconic Awards where I was awarded Best in Catagory for Diorama. This is a great convention that is growing leaps and bounds. Well worth attending if you are into wargaming or just want to take some great hobby classes. Plus, its Vegas baby!

Here are a few minis I took along for LVO in my new Tablewar case . Several were just for show since they had been previously entered into other contest.

Here is my winning entry "Slice and Dice" along side the gorgeous resin trophies from the Draconic Awards. :-D
