As our League was winding down, we held two painting competitions, one at 15 points, the other at 35, and opened up the voting to the public over at the Privateer Press Forums. If you remember I posted about it encouraging everyone to go and vote.
Well I’m extremely happy to report that I won one of them! At the 15 point level, my epic Feora force took home the gold..erm…gift certificate with over 50% of the votes! Wowzas! These winnings have bought me eeKreoss whenever he comes out!
My 35 point entry didn’t fare as well, but I place some of the blame on the quality of the picture. It was admittedly taken in haste, and as was pointed out by some in our group, it washes out the colors. But I really shouldn’t complain, we had some really great entries at this level, and the winning entry is a really great looking force on the table (I know, I’ve faced off against it).
This is really great in that this is just after a year in the hobby! I’m putting together a post that takes a look at various models I’ve painted from the beginning up to now, as a sort of “look how I’ve grown” or retrospective post. Be on the look out for that in the coming week!
