Golden Demon & Euro Militaire Entries

16 Aug

With Euro and GD coming up, most of my time between now and September will be taken up with painting entries for both of these competitions. For Euro I’m still uming and arring about what I should paint, though I have started on a single historical, that of Ptve Hook from Empress Miniatures. I intend to recreate the scene from the film Zulu, of Hooky just before he climbs through the hole in the wall of the medical building to escape the Zulu warriors. I’m also contemplating painting a fantasy figure holding a torch, and placing her in a dungeon, surrounded by cobwebs. The plan is to do a lot of OSL, when I start this particular mini, I’ll place links to tutorials on OSL.

For GD I have finally decided on a High Elf Lord and  Sam with pony for LOTR. I really like the LOTR range of minis, in my humble opinion they are some of the best minis that Games Workshop produce. The Sam with pony is excetional nice as well, and I had to pinch/borrow this one from my wife’s grey hoard, which is a lot smaller than mine, because she’s been on mini purchasing ban since last year.
