  1. Here was my main entry for the Gencon MHE competition this year. Every year, I spend a lot of time painting a few minis, then enter any gaming miniatures I have that fit the categories. He got a gold award from the main competition, received a judge's choice award, and took home the 4th place Dark Sword trophy. I really love this mini- the biggest trouble I had painting him up was that Jim (owner of Darksword) owns a fantastic version of him painted by Zach Lanier. A lot of the decisions that I made on him kept this sort of meta-thinking in mind (ie, when Jim and Jess were judging the contest, I didn't want them to be comparing him to Zach's mini too much). I think I came out with an interpretation of this mini that is all my own. I've also posted him to Coolmini, for anyone who cares to vote.

MHE Guest of Honor – Jérémie Bonamant Teboul Jérémie is a master globetrotting painter from France, known worldwide for his beautiful use of color, ambiance and technique. His articles and tutorials have been widely published in modeling and miniatures magazines around the world and on his website at []www.jeremiebt.com]. Most recently he's become one of the creators of a new miniatures company called Kraken Editions. Jérémie was young when he fell into the bottomless cauldron of obsessive and maniacal miniature painting. Hyperactive and persevering, Jérémie just can't help his painting frenzy. While already busy with sports and social activities, Jérémie managed to transform his passion into a full time job. He is unavoidable on many French mailing lists dedicated to the painting hobby. He has an innate talent for putting together a vast network of other passionate painters around the world. He describes himself as a "couldn't give a damn, clumsy and not so creative guy," and often says he uses many hints and tips discovered by others. Always willing to chat, speak, babble, natter and share his passion, Jérémie ceaselessly wanders around the world to meet people as crazy as him. He'll be giving classes, demos, and participating in various MHE events, as well as exhibiting some of his finished work in the MHE display cases. * * * * * * * 16 days and counting!
