SHOWCASE: Chaos Lord with additional Hand Weapon

Hi again!
Here it is an Avatars of War Chaos Lord that I've painted last month for a recurrent painting contest, from Reino de los Olvidados. I managed to paint it quickly (before the deadline, by a couple of minutes!) , to participate in this painting contest. As I said, it's a recurrent painting contest, with 5% disccount on the store for the winner each month as prize. The idea is, -more than the prize- to run this contest every month, to incentivate others players in my country to try painting a bit better than tabletop (o 3-colors-for-tourneys xD).

Ok, here is my entry from October!!

Well, in the end I really liked how I painted this one. But... in the contest...
I was vilely disqualified! LOL
The official photos must contain a surprise item (one different each month) and I took a pair of pictures of this Chaos Lord with the 10 CLP coin on the mini (not all the miniature was available to see in these pics), and then I took several ones (the pics above) without the stupid coin! The pics I took "to fulfill the requirements" weren't good to be the "official" ones. Same happened to another user of the forums. So, another user win the October contest by default!

Anyways, on the brightside:
- I liked how well this miniature turned out.
- The sculptor of this beauty liked my paintjob.
- At least I won the users choice!

This month, I converted and painted another AoW miniature. This time it's not for my beloved army; it was a comission work. I converted and painted an AoW Chaos Dwarf to a Dwarf Lord on Oathstone!
Now I must try to fix a bit the photos and send them for the contest. This month will be at least 7 participants, surely it will be more challenging! And NO, I haven't forgot this-month's-stupid-surprise-item!!
I've tried to make better pictures, but my efforts weren't rewarded yet. The owner of this commission took better pics, and that's what I would post in my next entry!

See ya soon!

Welcome to my Blog!

Well, how to start...
I've started with WHFB around 3 years ago, maybe 4, I don´t remeber it so clearly. Anyways, I've started last year, reading lots of WH-related blogs and thought I would like to have one to.
Time passed and I'd never enough time to start blogging.
Then, yesterday, a friend, online-store and forum owner and old hobbyst/gamer asked me if I would like to have a blog, attached to their website ( like him. I said I would, but then I couldn't afford to manage the WordPress blog format. Much more complicated for someone who hasn't ever had a blog before, lol.

So, here I am, starting a blog about Warhammer and things related.
I'll use it primary as showcase for my chaos army, but sadly, I'm a very slow painter. It's clear I'll post other thing too, because of the lack of info about my army!

Well... lets get started!
This one is a Tzeentch Lord on Disc I've painted almost 1-2 years ago.
Those days I had less than a third of the colours I own now, and less than a half of the practice I have nowadays. Also, the photos are crap, sorry. Maybe when I have re-painted it, I'll try to make better pictures, but now, that's it:

As I said, sorry for the crappy pics. I promise I'll learn how to take better ones!

See ya! (I hope, soon!)
