  1. That is indeed stunningly magnificent work. On the path for a Golden Demon award in my opinion.

    As a hobbyist with once brilliant but now failing eyesight I can tell you painting with a visor is annoying. Revel in your ability mate!

    1. Thanks, mate! That is very kind of you to say. I can only imagine how wearing a visor is. I will rue the day when I have to wear one but I imagine that it is all but inevitable one of these days…

  2. Jaw-dropping! Truly magnificent! A stunning model too, as someone who doesn’t usually like the aesthetic of Warhammer, this model actually looks really nice.

    Arkham Horror: The Card Game is such a great game, even if things go horribly wrong. I’ve had my investigators permanently die during campaigns and it only added to the theme and the story! I’ve been wanting to get a new campaign going for some time now, but currently still too busy with work, the house and the Lord of the Rings campaign.

    1. Thanks, mate! πŸ˜€ I’m really glad to hear you’re liking it and I couldn’t agree more on this being one of the better Warhammer sculpts. I don’t paint many so I try to go with only the best!

      I had a great time playing Arkham even with losing near the end of the campaign. I feel like I’m starting to learn how to build decks on my own so I’m excited to play more soon. I think I’m going to start a new campaign tomorrow, in fact πŸ™‚ I hope you’re able to get some games in soon!

  3. This is just stunning, absolutely stunning. All the hours you’ve put into this have been totally worth it to produce this magnificent model. The highlighting and shading are wonderfully subtle and bring the whole thing to life. Feel free to pat yourself on the back as much as you want, you deserve it πŸ™‚

    1. There are times where I question putting so much time into a single project so I really appreciate your kind words! Here’s to hoping I can finish the rest of this project strongly πŸ™‚

  4. The elf is really coming together now Jeff, good to hear you got the torso stuck on the second attempt, as it would have been such a shame to have a bad fit after all the work you’ve put in.
    Great that you’ve started your clearout, and managed your first sale, and that you’ve been getting some gaming in as well.

    1. Cheers, Dave! Disaster was averted but only just. As usual, I’m trying to do too many things at once but it feels good to make some progress on each of those tasks at the same time.

  5. Glad you managed to overcome the assembly as it’s often the worst bit as far as I am concerned, all to often I get glue everywhere! As to the figure itself you have every right to pat yourself on the back, a truly excellent piece of work and your patience certainly paid off. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, John! Its always good to know you’re on the right track. And truthfully, it can be hard to comment on something really nicely done because usually people have already said it six different ways before you got there and you’re stuck trying to come with the seventh way to say it πŸ™‚

  6. Even though I’d skipped ahead and looked at the pictures before reading the text so I knew it would all turn out ok in the end I still had my heart in my mouth reading about the assembly stage. Modern GW models are tricky enough to assemble unpainted, let alone when they’re painted and looking good enough for a Golden Daemon. Just assemble the rest of the damn thing, I’m not sure I can handle the stress! πŸ˜‰

    1. Haha, cheers mate! Assembling it with painted pieces is absolutely nerve wracking and not something I enjoy doing. At the same time, there is almost no choice because these models are so intricate and if you don’t do that, you won’t be able to paint every little detail nicely. It is a real pain and it makes me look forward to painting some simple infantry models when I get done with this project πŸ™‚

  7. Wow man this is absolutely exquisite. You are very, very talented. I love your attention to detail. The only time I get nervous when it comes to painting things is when I’m doing the eye. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this hobby of ours is an extreme sport! Good job on the book sale too. De-cluttering is good fit the soul.

    1. Cheers, mate! The eyes are difficult to be sure. One of the hardest parts, I’d say. It feels good to de-clutter though there is a lot more to go before I can say that I’ve reduced what I own much so I can’t be patting myself on the back too hard yet!

  8. Can only reiterate what everyone else is saying Jeff, absolutely stunning!
    Man, that must have been a bum squeaky time assembling it!
    Extend the right arm, bend at the elbow, and give yourself one well deserved pat on the back… but not too many, you have to save something for when its completeπŸ˜‰

    I see your venture into AH was as to be expected, with the end of the world – all the Arkham Files are great games, but I seldom win any of them!

    1. Cheers, mate! It was nerve-wracking but I had something not very pleasant happen today. I guess I should save it for my next update but let’s just say I was even more nervous than before… I think I better refrain from patting myself on the back until I finish this project at this point is all I can say!

      Losing to the ancient gods is no surprise, innit? πŸ˜€ I actually went back and played the first campaign and was pleasantly surprised when I beat the last scenario using decks I built myself. I’m feeling quite chuffed about that and love the game even more, I think πŸ˜€

  9. Sorry to be missing for a bit. Trying to catch up. The details on the figure are indeed wonderful and it’s a very complicated set of armor made awesome looking. πŸ˜€

    1. No worries, Stew! I hope you were away because you got moved okay but I guess I’ll have to keep checking your site to find out! Thanks for the kind words as always, my friend πŸ˜€
