    These are beautiful, such a nice clean paint style. Look forward to seeing more.
  2. Iron Painter 2017 - Round One

    Boom, we're on! Good luck everyone, happy modelling! Edit: Thinking about it on the drive home this is a hard theme for round 1, certainly not a basic one to help place painters into their categories. I'd class myself as an experienced painter but I've only dabbled with OSL a handful of times in the 15 years I've been painting. This is definitely more skill based over theme. Painter's who have practiced this over the years will have a clear advantage here. Knowing how to paint OSL and incorporating it into your final piece, cool. Having to solely rely on it to score your theme points, not so much. Personally I'm excited for the challenge, I've got a project in mind straight away but I think this is going to skew the true placement right from the get go. Please just don't make round 2 NMM.

  7. Dia de los Muertos - The Ortegas & Co.

    Hey all, So this update is very long overdue (as always). I never really got around to tying this project up properly so I figured now is the time to do it. For people following this thread I did finish my crew and the new display board in time for the UK Nationals last year. The display board took me pretty much 5 weeks on the run up and though I was happy with the end product it wasn't worth the stress. I walked away with 2nd place for painting (players vote) missing out on 1st by 1 vote. I was beaten by a rather nice 10T crew in the end for the painting and a fantastic Dark Carnival piece for the display board category. Then once all that was over it was Christmas and then real life stuff got in the way and I never got around to updating this thread. Then being the mastermind I am I tidied up my photobucket the other month and broke all my links (go me!). So today I re-linked all my work and grabbed some finished pictures of the individual crew members. I had to pinch them from my Instagram so they're not the best quality but it's all I have I'm afraid. Perdita Enslaved Nephelim Santiago Francisco Nino Papa Loco Abuela & Senor Hodor Executioner A WIP of their display board And the finished article with all the family And that is the Ortega family all done and dusted for now. Sadly I never did finish the Peacekeeper though I will get around to that at some point. I really enjoyed this project and I learnt a load of stuff in the process. Massive thanks to those that have followed this project and provided your suggestions and comments. And now currently I am on to my new project, Marcus! I have started not only a new crew but a website/blog as well. So if you'd like to follow my progress you can find my website at www.haychdee.com And if you're on Instagram or Twitter you can also find me at @haychdee So that's it for now. I will hopefully be back with some updates in the future. hd
  8. Not sure about a limit, I normally upload to my Photobucket account and then just link the pictures in. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your work
  9. Dia de los Muertos - The Ortegas & Co.

    Thanks! I did white first then added the black and then the other colours on top. I did Perdita last and I think it turned out the best. I airbrushed the white on for good coverage first, then took my super super fine bristle brush and carefully added everything else on.

    I've fallen way behind with updates for this blog and due to a photobucket re-shuffle the links are broken. I will fix the links soon. @iamfanboy all my pics are also on my instagram here https://www.instagram.com/haychdee/

  12. Scottish GT 2017 - 22nd/23rd July

    I've double posted like a melon so I may as well edit to ask: Will CGG be open on the Friday evening like last year for pre games or an enforcer brawl?
  13. Scottish GT 2017 - 22nd/23rd July

    Can we put forward Team Beefeater as well please, should be the 6 of us booked on now.

  15. Haul of Eggs 5 - Sat 8th April - Daventry

    Hoping to get down to this with a few of my team mates as well. Had a quick read of the pack and one sentence mentions that it's enforcer for best painted but in the prize section is says it's fro 3 minions. Both sound good but was just wondering which one it'll be? Thanks Haydn
