Sculpting Banners

2014-08-30 13.16.49 I talked about taking a class at Gen Con to start to develop my underdeveloped sculpting skills and after the class, one of the things that was discussed was making a banner. With my Daemon army, I am planning on having 3 units of Tzeench Horrors so I thought this would be the perfect time to start trying out my new skills. After all, I had whipped out several chunks of chain at this point, a feather, and a purity seal. Heck I must be an expert right!

So, I am going to point out, I am no pro at this, as I quickly learned and I probably could use a few more lessons, but the end result is pretty cool. It will take a little bit to get better, but I figure I can take what I have have done here and with a some practice and watch some videos and ask advise and my next efforts are only going to improve. I am, however, righting this article to let you know that this is something that you can do too. If you don’t take on new projects and try to develop your skills as a hobbiest, then you are going to eventually get bored with the hobby, painting and modeling.

Round 1 – Bill Robertson, Warriors of Chaos
Bill is famously known for Warscore, the tournament scoring application. This year, though he brought a pretty standard warriors army. I went down to his army. Simply put, he played better and I didn’t handle the crazy movement as well of the speed of my army. I did manage though to use the Carmine Dragon to kill the chaos toad dragon, but that was about it.
