I won! Yes, I know I've not posted much the last few weeks. I've been concentrating on getting my entry for the Valkyrie Painting contest finished. That, and reading as many of you guys blogs as possible. Oh, and working on some prototypes for my Ad Mech themed guard.
I was pretty confident going into the competition, at least until I saw the other entries. There were some really nice Valkyries. An interesting note also, out of five entries, there was only one that was not a Vendetta! But, I think that a striking paint scheme (or at least a unique one) and attention to interior detail probably helped me stand out.
Usual camera caveats apply. It really looks a good deal better in real life than I am capable of capturing in a picture. If I can get some better pics with some better light later, I'll add them to a future post. So here we go!
First up the all important ID shot...
Then a couple shots with ground support...
And last we have a shot of the first of the Ad Mech themed guys this Valk might tote around...
Not shown due to lack of camera skill are a detailed interior including door guns/gunners that swing back out of the way so the doors can be closed. The model was done mostly with an airbrush with large chunks being assembled after painting. The las cannons were converted from extras I had left over from a Land Raider Prometheus.
The prize was pretty sweet as well. First up I received a thirty dollar gift card, not a bad deal on its own. The real prize though is a free landing pad terrain piece of some sort that I get when they are released with Planet Strike in July! While I've not seen it yet, judging by the past 40k terrain pieces I'm excited. Plus, it'll make a nice place to park the Valkyrie!
I appreciate you stopping by. Any comments or critiques are welcome as always. No pressure but for extra points you can leave a comment in Quatrain Poetry style.
