Mini of the Month February '13: LARGE AND IN CHARGE!!!

Post by Dez » Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:47 am

It's the return of Mini of the Month! So get fresh blades in your xacto knives, knead up your greenstuff, straighten your bristles and show us what you've got!

Congratulations to Arnathos for winning in February and picking our theme this month.

February's theme is 'LARGE AND IN CHARGE'. Thinking along the lines of Monsters, Tanks, Dreadnoughts, and other items of stature. Sky's the limit, so go nuts. Multiple entries are allowed and ENCOURAGED!!!

Make sure you post a Work In Progress shot (NO or MINIMUM paint), as well as the finished product. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT MoTM IS A CONVERSION CONTEST, so no stock models!

BE FINISHED BY 11:59 February 27th, voting starts on the 27th and runs until early February 28th.

So welcome back, and let's see those entries! Please leave your questions here. Good luck everyone!

TELL YOUR FRIENDS! The more entries the merrier. First time converting? Throw your hat in the ring! This is the place to get some constructive feedback. Please link back here if you are posting in your WIP or Blog threads and spread the word!



MONSTERS!!! would pretty much let people just pick their favorite game system and convert up a monstrous creature/infantry/cavalry model, a monster, maybe even a dreadnaught or something.

Large and in Charge sounds catchy even though it would be more monstrous HQ and HQ's riding monsters and such, but generally big things would be ideal.

Would adding spikes and emblems on a Predator to make it a Chaos pred count as enough? Or would I also need to convert other things, like maybe a Nurgle Gunner or that ilk?

It depends, because the Chaos Predator comes with that stuff to upgrade it. Converting a cool gunner, using bits from different kits, putting Zombie heads on instead of Targetters...all that counts ;)

Greenstuff tentacles? Nothing says warp like tentacles.

If thats not your thing, maybe do a monicle, top hat and bow tie for him, it would look awesome.

I was thinking of a top hat, ala Worgen of WoW but.. it would not go with the rest of my army, I don;t have funds to make a just a display piece

It may just turn into giving him some trophies from the bitz box.
