Haha, love the big blood drops on the standard :)

Busted out the old dark elf bits today and cobbled together a Vampire... now to find time to paint her...

I think my entry is done! I just need to get some decent pictures of it now...

Not easy to photograph models this size, but here we go:

Lady of the Carmine Rose on Skeletal Dragon

The dragon, and indeed the shield, have been painted for ages. I didn't want to do another lance wielding vampire (having done a whole bunch of Blood Knights) so I went for this gesturing or spell casting pose, instead.

Great submissions guys. Unfortunately I've had a crazy month doing overtime & watching football and haven't had time to get anything done.

@Farmer7574 well, that's a shame! I shouldn't complain, though - I won't be able to enter with the dragon on time, even if it wasn't a Berlin Beer Week now ;) Those scales take forever to paint!

I could enter my varghulf here to make it somehow crowdier, but he already took part in a competition on Khemri forums, so I'm not sure about reusing him. Any objections?

Sorry guys my camera (phone) is broken and i can't take a decent photo as it won't focus and is cracked letting in too much light. Here is a crummy pic i'll see if i can find a better camera before this afternoon and get some better shots.

I call it: Accordian playing Vampire midgit on giant carnivorous worm.

A unit of Blood Knights finished aside from the banner. Haven't decided on a good symbol yet but at least the blue is delicious.

Wow, that's some nice entries guys!

I will start up the voting thread when I'll come back home tomorrow, so there's still some time to post something. If anyone needs some more time, I can extend the deadline a few days, just give some info before tomorrow! :)

I am posting here my Gatzek, an alternative Varghulf:
