I got a call last night from Little Barrera, fresh from his tournament win on Saturday with his Space Wolves... and as an aside, it's a pretty sure bet that in two weeks I'll have to try to knock him off the track for winning our local tournament, but I digress. Anyway, one of the Dallas Games Workshop stores is promoting a painting competition with a unique twist.
You pick a Chapter from the poster, every Chapter can only be picked once, and paint up 4 Marines from said Chapter; in addition, you paint 1 Marine from a Chapter of your own design. There are some interesting prizes, but let's face it, the challenge is the thing, am I right?
So, who's involved? Little Barrera, the Master Manipulator (every store needs one), the Mighty Mighty Carlos, and me. Check out what we each picked: spot a theme?
None of us were involved in the decision of the other, but we each picked a unique, challenging theme. The Imperial Fists are a fan-favorite, and everyone knows yellow is a challenging color to paint. Two of us picked quartered themes while the last is a split-theme. None of the schemes are dark and all will look great when painted.
So I picked Nova Marines, Little Barrera went with Storm Lords, the Master Manipulator (every store needs one) decided on Howling Griffons, and the Mighty Mighty Carlos had no choice but for Imperial Fists... 'cause he has an army already.
I'm going to have to work hard on this one, being that I'm the weakest of the four painters - one's an artist, one's a prodigy, one's a mad-technician... then there's me, Strictly Average. I ain't gonna put in a poor showing.
I guess the only question is... what to do with the Chapter of my choice?
Just my luck. I finish my Storm Raven a day after it's announced GW is producing one. I have another kit; I intended to photo a walk-t...
