RE: Golden Hat #16Grimstonefire 12-31-2011

Seeing as I only bought the base model a couple of hours ago I obviously won't be entering it.  Plus I need to buy a few bits as well, but I thought I'd share my idea; using a Tau Crisis Battlesuit!

More info will have to wait for my blog...

It was a tough call between this and just going down the warmachine route (Cryx), but I fancied a challenge.

RE: Golden Hat #16Nicodemus 12-31-2011

F***-it. I'm out.  There's no way I can finish in time and and 5 of the lights inside the Manburner stopped working at some point between when it was primed and after I put on all of the translucent flame effects.  Pissed me off royally!! 60+ hours for the 3 models: making moulds, casting, wiring, soldering, sculpting, etc.  Plus I took apart two old (and FINISHED) metal models: 40K Juggernaut and an old Daemon Prince to get the parts I needed to cast.  Was ~$150 in materials too.  Not impressed. Not only is most of the painting still to be done but to fix the Manburner model would be to cut through the GS in the middle of the body and try to find some of the wires in order to attempt a fix, and there's no way to do that fix, then apply more GS, let it cure, prime just that section (can't prime over the translucent flames once they are cured) paint it, apply the flames and let them cure again. Would take 2-3 days minimum, and that's if there weren't kids to take care of in the middle.

You know the rules for this are One to 3 K'daai right...?  Could you not just finish one to enter?

RE: Golden Hat #16Nicodemus 12-31-2011

Yes, I know. But I was finding it stressful as it was to even think about finishing on by 11pm tonight (midnight here on the forum) and decided it was less stressful to just post the WIP pictures to my BLOG and call it a day.  I'm not annoyed at spending so many of my evenings over the holidays working on this one project when I could have been board gaming, playing PS3, reading or doing work... instead of rushing to meet todays deadline.  Nope, I'm much happier saying I'm done with this GH.

That's a shame... I had originally planned to have a full unit of my guys by this point. With all the issues I was lucky to get the one I submitted.

I foresaw alot of issues and time problems over the holiday period. I wasn't going to enter but I'd hate to miss a Golden Hat so I made the wise decision to keep this entry very very simple! Sorry you guys never got yours in but I'm looking forward to seeing them in your blogs!

Sorry to say I ran out of time.  With all the family commitments over the christmas period i just didn't get the time for painting.  I'll post what I've done in my painting log when I get chance to take some pictures.

Sorry guys but I can't wait to see what you've all produced (and what ideas I can nick)

Cheers

RE: Golden Hat #16Nicodemus 01-01-2012

There were 14 entries this time.  They're being compiled into their display images now.  The new thread will be posted once we hear back from a couple of folks as some of the entries didn't have a visible base in the images.  Once we hear back it'll be time to vote... so hang in there!  I'm really kicking myself for messing mine up at the last minute.  Still, it doesn't matter if it's good, it still has to be done on time Wink
