Default February Painting Deathmatch - Single Miniature

Hello everyone! Welcome to the thread for the


  1. The category is decided upon and posted in the Painting Deathmatch Calendar. This month's category is:
    • Single Miniature - Any single miniature from any company on a base with a greatest dimension up to 40mm, or up to a 25mm narrow bike/cavalry base. If the miniature is not mounted on a base, then entrants must seek confirmation before entering.
  2. Only models that are painted wholly within the month are eligible to enter (i.e. unpainted or only primed at the start of the month). Entrants are not required to post a photograph of the model before painting. If you have a question as to whether or not your model qualifies, please feel free to post in this thread.
  3. You may join the painting deathmatch in progress at any time, but must submit photographs of the completed miniature by midnight GMT, 29 February 2015. WIP images are welcomed and encouraged.
  4. Miniatures that are completed in time will be eligible to win the deathmatch. The deathmatch winner will be decided in a separate voting thread by the Heresy Online community. Votes should be cast not simply on painting skill, but on merit, including creativity, application of painting techniques, individual artist improvement, etc. The winner of the deathmatch will be awarded with the Mark of Slaanesh award.
  5. Winners from the previous month are able to participate in the next months painting deathmatch, but they are not eligible to win in consecutive months.

This is not the year long Army Painting Challenge, but a separate Monthly event. Though entries in one can also be entered into the other (assuming it fits into the category chosen for this deathmatch).

Good luck to all participants!

PS - If you have any feedback on the running or structure of the monthly deathmatches throughout the course of the next month, please comment in the Calendar thread as we will take into account any feedback.

Finished the Khromlech Mega Nob. Flame effect curtsy of a shaved boy. Done basically in the scheme of the Bad moons of DA GOLDEN WAAAGH with a little extra effort to bring it above table top to more a entry level hopefully. Any thoughts?

Re-upload with slight upload for the chest plate with a little copper to break up the color pallet.

Da Golden Waaagh!
