I spent a few evenings over a fortnight working on a little Duel diorama to enter into a Golden Demon at Warhammer World this month. You can see the stages of genesis below as well as the finished piece.
I really enjoyed building this little world and giving it character and unspoken story, it really kind of sang to my creative side in a way I didn't expect. Joyfully it also garnered me a second Golden Demon Finalist Pin (Pictured at the end).
Quite disappointingly however, Magnus the Red got dismissed to the bottom shelf dramatically early on in the judging. This wouldn't bother me such had it not been for spending about 10x the hours on Magnus than I did on this Duel!! The standard was, as always, pretty mind blowing, so after some sulking and reflection I am still very happy to come away with a finalist pin and be sitting at 2 finalist pins out of 2 Golden Demons.
Going forward I think I will be concentrating on Duels and Dioramas now though, from both an enjoyment perspective and that I think I stand a marginally better chance of placing in those categories.
Oh, I'm also Dr Rob Hill now!!! I've finally finished my PhD, I just have to actually attend my graduation, but all the paperwork is in now and I can join the esteemed company of Mike and Marc with their big noggins!
As always, if you've stopped by to have a nose I am very grateful and I'm always hoping to become more regular at blogging. It is amazing how quickly you can slip out of it.
