Iron Painter a Success- Huzzah!
Well, I'm impressed!
Seldom have I ever seen such hard work and dedication as was put on display this weekend at the Iron Painter event. People buckled down and got their armies painted within the 12 hour limit, and done to good standards as well. SEVEN participants managed to get their armies done. My hat's off to all of these guys:
Stanley, who came up from Singapore just for this event, painted an excellent Chaos Space Marines force. If anyone has better picture than what I took, please forward them to me!
Subhan painted Necrons in a difficult white color scheme, and even managed to earn the "Iron Skull" by painting at least 30 models/1000 points. Awesome job dude!
Iskazri was our other Iron Skull winner, with a nice force of battle hardened Imperial Guardsmen- including a Leman Russ tank!
Arzmi put his nose to the grindstone, and along with a cunning plan using Citadel washes painted a nice looking Ork troop. Great job, dude.
Alvin also painted an Ork warband, and was definitely one of the nicer armies finished. Good job!
Shazli stayed with his tried and true Ultramarines, and managed to add yet more models to his enormous collection with a successful Iron Painter run.
Finally, Iqbal pulled out all the stops with his forest spirit themed Wood Elf army, bringing a laptop for entertainment and an airbrush for basecoating. With a great theme and solid paintjobs, Iqbal not only finished but was also voted the best. He took away the Purity Seal and is the very first winner of a Legio Malaysia Iron Painter. Outstanding! :)
Khairul, Dann, Juan, and myself all slugged it out as well, but we didn't manage to get the job done. Nonetheless, it was great to get a lot of hobby in and share the same space with our first batch of Iron Painters. Congratulations to all for a fun event.
