I think all three were pretty good.

The way I looked at it was;
Lupusj: your conversions were good simple and clean however not a great deal of change from the base models. The paint job has started off well but with out an end product it is always hard to say.

jmaddux:
I think this conversions is one of the coversions which a lot of chaos players will look into doing it seem very fitting to mash both the deamon prince and the Hellbrute together (in saying that it is the first I have seen) You seem to have done it too very clean. Again it is an unfinished paint job which isn't great and in my opinion I am not a fan of the blue but it is definatly on it s way to be a great looking mini.

Thabow,
I really like what you have done, the walker is really nicely put together and the finialy painted model looks great. The one big let down with this is that I feel it isnt really much of a Dark Vengence mini. The DV mini itself seems to be just palced on the top and the rest of the model is something seperate altogether. but as i said i still like what you have done.


So to round up I voted for jmaddux, his conversion was nice well put together and didnt seem like a mish mash of parts. Thabow would have got my vote if the topic had been more related to the walker or something along those lines as it is a really good job. Lupusj's work is also great but I felt more work had gone into the other two.


cheers sorry being a little picky

Feedback is good, and I agree with what you said. Just don't forget we are judging on the merits of the conversions, not the paint job.

I'm going for jmaddux. Lupusj and Thabow had superb conversions too, but I feel jmaddux really took the bull by the horns and did something extremely daring, and pulled it off perfectly. :mrgreen:

what??!?!? lol

so just so we're clear, I was the only one to finish on time, the only one to finish the painting, the only one to do a scratch built conversion and the only one to do a proper base and I came in last place? How the hell did that happen. It's like being back on Dakka Dakka.

congrats to jmaddux I guess, though in truth I'm not that impressed, I could go into my bits box and reproduce that model in less than three mins.

hate to sound bitter here guys but it sucks to play fair and then be faulted for it. This will be my last MOTM contest.

I guess this makes me a sore loser....

lupusj you had some very clean conversions...

This isnt a painting contest or basing contest. It's a conversion contest. And I thought jmaduxx had the better conversion tbh.


Jmaduxx had a based model. He had a painted model.

If I had all your bits I could do the same thing you have done.

your right, this is a conversion contest which is why I assumed that a conversion that had been scratched built would win over something that had had parts added to it. But you know what they about assumption. As for the painting, your right there too, event though this thread is in the painting section it is again a conversion contest so why bother painting it at all? And no, you couldn't have built this model, the bitz came from several different sources not all GW and some aren't in production anymore so that makes this a one of a kind.

either way, we're both missing the point here, this contest is about encouraging people to build new models and explore new ways of doing it. Dez you do a good job of running this contest but next time you should stick to the deadline so you don't have this same problem down the road with another jerk like me.

now then, back into the void.................

Thabow, you've already won like 20 times :lol: I was a bit bummed when I lost to the brown T-prime a year ago. But his conversion was better, and I'm happy with myself because I love the model I made.

Sorry I know not really my business but Thabow the contest was to convert something from DV you just seemed pop a DV ontop of another conversion..(correct me if I am wrong) Your conversion is great, really is but it is not within the specification of the contest???

Either way prove the, all wrong next month with this quality of work you will be tough to beat!

well, i'll tell you right out that while your conversion was creative and your painting was good, i kinda just wondered what you model even was... with the other 2 i could tell what they were trying to make and how what they did accomplished it. i didnt vote lupus cause it was very simple and unfinished.

if i hadn't thought that the model you made was just gluing sprues together i might have voted for it.

I won? YEAH Thanks.... and Ive been painting it still 2-3 hours a day sense that post... Im working on getting the NMM (Non metallic Metals) really good.... im not a good painter at all, I have to repaint and repaint all the time. I do 2 many steps for something so simple to other... so a 40hour paint job for my Lords is normal.

But I think the HB model is Awesome and I was scared to make the 1st CUT into it lol... my heart was racing.

Ill post pics up when its done :D
