Empowered Orikan 'Star God' Showcase

Nick speaking,

Here is the final result of me painting up the awesome Star God sculpt that I got from Master Crafted Miniatures. Let me know what you think of him, I plan on using him as an Empowered Orikan in my three C'tan Necron themed army, and I can't wait to get him on the table...

Nick speaking,

Welcome to the official Announcement of the HELP for HEROES 'Salamanders' charity raffle winner. Where one lucky person has won the amazing Salamanders army, donated, built and painted by the very talented YouTube Wargaming Community. The project was headed up by myself, Quantum Studios and WarlordsWargaming, and we are now very pleased to be able to announce the winner of the army that was randomly chosen...

We are incredibly proud to say that we managed to raise a total of £7317.81, which couldn't of happened if it wasn't for all the very generous people on the project, and to everyone who bought tickets and donated money for the army raffle. All the proceeds from the project have gone towards the fantastic work done by the HELP for HEROES charity, so a massive thank you to everyone.

Now to announce the winner! We originally planned on doing the draw at Salute, but in the end it was just too hectic to make it happen, so we just took as much money as we could instead. A big thank you to all who organised the Salute event and for letting us display the army. We had an amazing day, and it was great to meet some of you in person. We did the draw a few days after, and we are very pleased to announce that the winner of the HELP for HEROES 'Salamanders' army is...

Congratulation to Malcolm Bennett, who won the army, we really hope that you enjoy your prize and that it will do you honour on the battlefield. Just click here to see a list of all the contributors who made the who thing possible and pictures of your new army, enjoy!

Terrain Square Competition (Final Seven)

Nick speaking,

Going back to the beginning of March and you may remember that I had a Terrain Square Competition over on my YouTube Channel. Well, I had an awesome response to the competition, with thirty three amazing pieces of terrain, all made from a blank 12"x12" board. I seriously urge you to check out this play list and have a look at all the entries for yourself, but it was my job to whittle the field down and come up with the top pieces!

It was a tough job, and I was picking my favourite squares rather than the 'best' pieces, so I had to follow my heart and guts, and in the end, It was these pieces that made it to my top seven entries...

Ghools Graveyard by Spungemurphy

Chaos Hell Diorama by Jason Prior

Double Sided Diorama by Moddeling Loonie

Space Hulk Scene by GamzaTheEternal

Historical Germanic Tribesmen Diorama by Archaeolas

All I had to do now was somehow sort these out into my top five and finally pick two winners to take the prizes! More to come soon...

Orikan Star God Miniature?

Nick speaking,

As many of you already know, I have a three C'tan Shard Necron themed army. My three C'tans are based on the Deceiver, Nighbringer and Void Dragon, which I converted up a while back. The army has been evolving, and I now have Orikan as my HQ choice, he has the nice combo with Worldscape for turn one, but lets face it, he is in the army to give me another mini C'tan when he is empowered!

So what model to use for an empowered Orikan? Step in Ben from Master Crafted Miniatures with his amazing Star God sculpt. Ben is a freelance miniature sculptor and Master Crafted Miniatures serves as an outlet for whatever sculpting he has time to do outside of professional contracts. He is also able to do private commissions, such as custom shoulder pads, but back to the Star God Sculpt...

As I am painting my mini to replace Orkin when he changes, I want to have a feel that he is being empowered. I plan on painting him blue, with a few morphing metal sections. I want the blue to be bright in the middle and gradually go darker on the outer parts. Now I don't own an air brush, so I used a piece of card with a small hole in it and my cans of Army Painter primers to give me the transition I need for the pre-shading...

Now to work on the blue!

Everyone need to paint a Spitfire!

Nick speaking,

I think it's not right to have never painted a Spitfire mini! So when I got the chance to paint up this Micro Wings plane for a bit of fun, I jumped at the chance. It's a pretty basic kit, and very small (1:144), but for my first ever plane, I am happy with it...
