This is great! I've got some Dirz infantry I think would do nicely.

Oh, no, I've just realized I'm supposed to post CMSheats pics of the fig I'm going to paint. Blimey! On it tonight.

Ok, working things out with gohkmkelvin right now. Waiting on pic. That's very true. Ok so, anybody can join, anytime, they just have to have a starting pic. The ending date is final. And then people vote for a week after that? Also, I am going to be gone through the, 26-31 of October. And I don't think there will be internet. We could always shorten the voting period, or extend it till I get back. If that is something that I even need to be here for. I am assuming I do as I am running it, : )

Ah, I'll have lots of time to do this contest now - I just got made redundant. Twice in 2 years. Bloody hell.

Haha, trash talk just makes it fun. :-D Well, my conversion on the back of the model just broke into like four pieces when I started painting the thing. :roll::roll:

My mini is looking pretty good thus far, I need to steal some Dark Angels green from a friend to get the skin done. I still dunno how I want to base the army so I might just prop him up on a base for the final photos.

Slowly but surely the Firebelly is getting done. At least I remembered that I wanted to put down a base of Dheneb Stone under the flame and smoke so the black primer wouldn't mess with my oranges and yellows. I love Dheneb Stone...

Plenty of time CM, relax and take a load off... no need to get painting ;) muahaha

I've got some DA Green coming tomorrow so I can finally start testing how I want to paint my ork skin for the army on a few spare arms.

That is guaranteed to hurt you during the voting phase.

So my mini should be done tomorrow and I was wondering...

Anyone here good at taking photos of minis? Not only do I not have a camera (only a phone), but I also am not set up to take photos of minis.

Anyone feeling generous enough to take photos of my mini if I ship it to you? I can pay for shipping both ways. Let me know if you're up for it!
