Birthday hobby goodness - pics from Manchester GW

In the past I've tried to give away things on my birthday, usually a free terrain template but with everything going on I really haven't had time. Obviously it's a day with mixed feelings for me with past events but I've got to give my fellow hobbyists something right?


Well, my local GW [Manchester Arndale] is doing a monthly painting challenge and I decided to include Ser Ellenbogen as my vehicle/monster entry. I'll be trying to include something every month from now on, although luckily it doesn't have to have been painted that month [I can't keep up with that kind of schedule]. Anyway, I took some pics of the entries [as well as other items instore] and thought I'd share as the level of skill and effort on display was really high. You never know, I may even come back at some point and add some painfully obvious captions 😉 I will just say the first three are the 'winners' for this month [the 4th one was also nominated for it's efforts], there is a competitive element.











I love this Sylvaneth army, almost makes me wish I had one... I won't though!

  1. Great standard of entry and love the Everqueen mini, it’s awesome might have to try to make it Necron-y at some point

    1. The Sylvaneth Underworlds Warband might be my purchase, although I think they seem all very similar, whereas there's a bit more diversity in models here?

  2. Ooof, nice picture dump mate. That Leman Russ Executioner makes me want to collect Imperial Guard (I won't though).

    1. Ha, ha. Must stop the urge, I mean I said I wouldn't buy anything but I have some amazon vouchers that are screaming to be spent on Blackstone Fortress but I don't know why. I think the game might be fun for us to play but we're highly unlikely to find the time. I also need to get up-to-date with Chapter Approved and a couple of Codex but with no tournaments that doesn't seem so urgent either...
