Went for #1. Although I must say that I loved the flames freehand on the cloak on #2 and the fact that #3 was dark eldar. You normally don't see that much.

Grrr voting for ur opponents sucks but i guess it's the gentlemanly thing to do lol.

Fluffy, u did a good job with the green stuff. The robes just need some wash and highlights and they would kill.

Steelhalo, good job on those flames. I think ur mini need a wash on certain parts like the shield. But nice job!

Me, not my best work. When you take a pic of ur mini close up, you see alot of flaws. Mine looks good on the tabletop, not close up.

I went for fluffy, I really liked the GK but the white on the cloak and the "dusty" look of it to me threw it off. and the DE was really good but I didnt really like the position of the arms or the giant head :/

I think a model should be based on conversion, not painting. Thats why we have painting deathmatch.

Fluffy's and the GK were both very close but the cloaks and flames did it for me on fluffy, very well done!

@#3 don't be afraid to give him something unique, like a cloak or very stabby sword. Other then that it's great.

Great work on everyones part, I agree with some of the critique above.

Fluffy, your stuff just gets better and better. If you haven't already, pick up some Liquid Greenstuff. A thin layer of it will remove all signs of fingerprints. I used it on some models recently, and it worked very nicely. I can't wait to see what you do next month!

Steelhalo very nice conversion, I tend to be more of a kitbasher myself. I love the kopesh, I use them on my Pre-Heresy Thousand Sons. I think that to improve, this model would have benefited from a more dynamic pose. That could have been putting his forward foot up on something, or having the arms more posed to attack/defend. Though I do like how it tells a story, like he is observing a scene. The freehand painting on the cloak is very nice, but I think a wash to blend in the blades a bit would have gone a long way. When you are drybrushing, if you have less paint on the brush it won't give off that chalky effect. You may want to try and thin the metals down a bit as well.

DJ you know I like the Dark Eldar ;) The horns are a really nice addition, though maybe ever so slightly out of scale. A bit of dynamic basing would have gone a long way here as well, placing the forward foot upon the Space Marine helmet would have looked very cool, defiant and triumphant. I love the suggestion of a cloak as well. Nice work on the highlights, I see where you were using different tones on the edging.

Good work everyone, I'm looking forward to seeing what we will be doing for May!

I voted for Fluffy, I love how the sculpts (although rough) came out. always getting better Fluffy! :D The Grey knight was alittle too rough for me, and the same goes for the dark eldar, it seems like the knives do not work with the model at all
