An update from RPG Land. A commission piece for family and I wanted to post an update. The following piece is for a Dungeon and Dragons module: Sword of Shannara. The inspiration is from this older module with a picture of a skull castle in a mountain side. All aspects of the mountain were not obviously captured; i.e. the taller mountainsides or the arched entrance, however I had to work with polystyrene I already had and the skull is a light up skull from Halloween decor. The skull was cut in half, the jaw removed then converted into a bridge, glued onto a 18"x24" piece of wood and the skull then magnetized for being removed.

Well after going 1-2 at RockCon and 3-0 at Merry Mayhem and winning a warmup game for Merry Mayhem. i figured i would throw some pictures out. Still working on the Army for The team Tournament in April at Adepticon in 2013. Here are some pictures and reports from Merry Mayhem.
Daemons of Chaos! This army came through at Merry Mayhem December 2nd I know Johnny Hastings won the champion of the brush but I had to throw this one in. I really feel it presents alot of new conversions and great color schemes along with a display board that ties it all in.

This was an undertaking and the 2nd largest single model I did. I wanted to make is feasible to use him in a standard orc and goblin army and different from any other idol out there. So if you notice the arms move....yeah they move lol. The base is also inside a 4x6 so he can be removed and stands on a single 50mmx75mm, yup he is going to be my giant. The mushrooms, endless shades of grey, and flock all match my standard orc and goblin units. I know its alot of grey but I sweat I did 4 base coats with black, then mudd, then sephia washes. Then 3 grey shades of highlighting. You can see it in the model but not in the photos, hopefully this guy comes out with my night goblin army next year!

This is one of the last photos of the board which is 90% complete at this point. Lava effects are on the 2nd layer and the hills come off. There are three positions with the hills facing each other, in the middle for king of the hill, and then each building can be put in opposite corners. Two of the views are shared along with the castle corner with lava mote and the central lava pit!

Like the title says its a standard bearer I converted up from a banner, plasticard pole, old bull centaur, some 20mm tight conversion work, and a chaos shield! Then Got some profile pics of him in new horde movement trays and the Hobos in their horde movement tray. The Infernal guard are now 30+ models and Hobos are 40+ and I think I can get the Hobos up to 50. Enjoy!

Just a few pictures of a converted destroyer. Converted it from an Ultraforge War Demon and used the arms and hands from the GW BloodThirster. The right hand axe is from an old ugly Ogre model. All of the blue flame is green stuff around joints and fur. The head is a combination of the Zombie Dragon head and the skull bit from a Chaos Hellcannon. The tail piece is the whip from the bloodthirster kit also.
Here are some good Pics of Paul, Ray, Brandon, and Miel at Rockcon. If you look careful you can see a handful of other players throwing down games in the background. I had a great time up north in Rockford, Illinois and need to get my battle report together! Can't Wait until next year! And just for your information Miel won Best Overall with Empire, Myself with Best Painted and Chaos Dwarfs, and there was a best General Award but I can't remember off hand who got that.
