Is it just me or does the quality of these 2 entries make you want to go out and buy a load of 10mm armies and have a massive war?

This is a truly stunning display!
Saving the last bullet... just in case.

See my wonderful BLOG of stuff!

Yes I have be storing up on 10mm, there are some great threads on the fantasy board.

But for massive war you need 6mm, you can do Helms Deep on  coffee table

in a way, yes ... and I am also wondering, why I do have so much difficulties with my 15mm DBAs or even my 28mm minis °_O

As these 10mm figures seem to be of interest to many I'm happy to post bigger, close-up photos if anyone would like to see them?  Obviously this would be after voting closes on this match, in accordance with LPL rules and the spirit of LAF.   :)

But with the pressure of the LPL I might forget so if you want to see them, you may have to remind me next week.   ::)

In terms of "painting smaller scales..."  Personally, I paint everything in the same way as I paint 28mm.  (Take a look at the DW 15mm stuff on my Website.)  But with these Copplestone 10mm I failed to paint the eyes.  This was due to the sculpting though. They are just eye-sockets.  If I had had more time I would have filled them and given myself a surface to paint.

Braver man than me - I too didn't paint the eyes and hadn't really entertained the idea at all!  lol

As all of my painting to date has been 28mm stuff I also approached these little chaps with pretty much the same mentality but a steadier hand.

I'd love to see more close-ups of your entry as well Orctrader - I'll endeavour to remember to remind you too!   ::)

I'll also be putting up some more detailed pics on my blog and in the fantasy section here for anyone interested - once the round is over of course.  :)

This one is sooooo damn close!  It really deserves to be a draw!  .....but then I'd hate to see either of you deprived of the point.

The way the LPL is set up - when quality meets quality both end up hurting ...just a little bit!

Fantasitc painting guys!  Is there any way Prof can declare 2 winners for this round?
