Blog Wars X Painting competition pics

The Blog Wars painting competition was up to it's usual high standard. Of course I knew what Liam and Otty were bringing but there weere some really good entries from other people too but my mates efforts did cause some people not to display because they didn't see the point. Which although I don't agree with, because if you've painted an army you should show it off, but I do understand people may feel it's pointless. Hypocritically I didn't display my army either. I'd intended to, but not to compete but as I may game finished dead on 2 hours 30 I really couldn't bring myself to set everything up when I had lunch, keeping up with the family at home and buying my Vargheist.

I did take pictures though and I know Alex wanted better ones if they were available as Liam did all his best army shots and was unfamiliar with the camera. In fairness lighting was pretty grim so I'm not sure my shots are an improvement but I may have caught some angles and shots Liam didn't, so enjoy.

This Dark Mechanicum army was fantastically creepy

Best painted special character category.


  1. Some great stuff there Dave & good to see armies that are built for their looks not just how bent they are.

  2. There were some great armies, I just wish there was a dedicated time I could have had to set up and look at others, the voting was mostly done before I had a chance to finish my first game. I bought a box of scenery and a game mat to set mine up but time was against me so I didn't bother in the end, I'm sure I wasn't the only one. A shame as most of the photos of people's armies I did get were on their transport trays or in a muddle.

  3. Some good stuff. Thanks for posting. The Eldar Farseer is my favourite. Give that person a high five for me.

  4. Imperial Guard Zeppelins! you have made my day :-)
