Lastly the Chaos Possessed World Eaters Dreadnaught. This thing was a kitbash of an Inquisitor Chrono Gladiator, Chaos Dreadnaught, Sentinal, Jumppack, Defiler and some other bits and pieces. I got the idea to spiff the model up for the comp and added flames, lighting effects, weathering, scratches etc.
Next from the same Golden Demons my Empire Engineer, again I dug through my collection for something to paint and he looked kind of fun. The mini is stock with a sculpted base following a similar idea as last years pirate girl. I put down a block of plastic and then sculpted over the top for all the stone work then did up some gears and levers copying some old ork gun details.
This is from 3 years ago for Golden Demon I had a dig through my old collection of orks and whatnot and he had such a fun face and the detail of the bionic arm with exhaust and gears showing appealed to me. For an arm I had a look at the new ork plastic ones, I thought the chainsaw would be perfect but the arm reached his ankles so it needed a lot of cutting up and shortening. Also reposed one of the legs to make him a little taller.
Unfortunately in the end although he made it to the finals he didn't place. I was told by a judge "If it was a new model it would have placed" which frankly sucked.
