For the new Storm of Magic stuff coming next month GW is looking for pics of gamers Monsters and Wizards...

Read about it here.

I have decided to enter I would be surprised to get my stuff on the site but stranger things have happened.

Here is what I wrote

Good Evening,

Thanks for creating this opportunity. I am submitting 2 entries so keep reading.

First up...

The Dwarf Giant Slayer - A giant who's entire family has been killed by evil Dwarf Slayers and who has now taken up the Slayer oath himself

The Build- This is the Standard Giant kit but with a few minor add ins. The Mohawk and pony tail were made from Green stuff. You may also notice the prisoner in the cage as the tied up slayer from the old Skull pass box set.

Painting- Flesh was done with Dwarf flesh with a paint wash of 50/50 tanned Flesh/Dwarf Flesh (Pre-Wash era) for shade and 50/50 Dwarf flesh/Elf Flesh for highlights. Cloth- various browns and grays to bring out the patchwork look. Ribbon was done in Blues (Ultra marine and Enchanted) to contrast the browns and grey. Scales and Shields were done in Greens and reds for variety.

Battle Plan- This Giant tends to work with my Orc and Goblin Army although it sometimes get used with Chaos Warriors and Beast-men. (Any chance he can get to kill Dwarfs!!!) This Guys strategy is pretty simple Charge forward and engage the enemy as soon as possible. The idea is to lock up before he gets shot to death.

Highlights- My favorite thing about this model are people's reaction to seeing it. The Idea of a Giant dressed as a Dwarf Slayer draws a lot of attention (as well as firepower. Grrr)


The Vampire Wizard- An evil vampire in the Spirit of Nosferatu

The Build- The base of this kit is the Plastic Empire Wizard. The head and left hand are from the Ghoul Sprue. This was an entry in the "design a Wizard" contest GW ran in 2008 or 2009. (the other was the Tau Space Pope- I included a pic of him just for fun)

Painting- The inner robes were done with a Mechrite Red base with Blood Red highlights this was washed with Baal Red wash for shade (put on after the highlight to blend the colors) The outer robe was done with Bestial Brown base and Snakebite leather highlights with a Devlan Mud wash. The Skin was done with Space Wolf Grey base with a white drybrush then washed in Purple wash and Blue Wash. when dry a highlight of Space wolf grey on the edges to bring out the details. The Scythe was done in browns, greens and reds

Battle Plan- Originally this guy was built to represent a Hierophant (Liche Priest) in a Barrow King (Tomb Kings) army (Based on a page of fluff from the old Army book) and he may still fill that roll if I ever find time to finish that project. Till then he fills the roll of a Vampire count. I usually give him The level 3 Upgrade and the Blood Drinker Blade along with the powers: "Lord of the dead". "Master of the black arts", and "Supernatural terror" Making him a truly Nightmarish master of Magic and death.

Highlights- My favorite thing about this model is the way the Ghoul and human wizard parts blend together so well. I was even able to make the human wizards hand look like a Ghoul hand with just a little work with a hobby knife. I also think he captures the spirit of a truly ancient Evil.

Thank you,
