Beautiful entries everyone

A hard choice once again. I think you've hit the nail on the head right there @Shadespyre - a stunning example of a creature of the night. You have my vote.

I'm a massive fan of @robtion 's Sewer Golem too - a solid competitor and a classic example of the crazy stuff he comes up with.

@Theerteen A nice conversion you've made there for your guy's mount - I watched 'The Thing' recently and he kinda reminds me of that :D

@Unas the slayer An interesting mash of warm and cold colours you've used there, which I haven't seen much on Nighthaunt. I think you need to invest in some liquid green stuff though to fill those gaps xD

@Theerteen : oh my, that mount is creepy as it should be an insectoid.... hungry thing. Not a fan of that particular model of rider, but the mount alone was almost going to steal my vote.

@Shadespyre :i fell in love with that rotten little dragon. Perfect painting, great details. i coldn't pass away.

@Farmer7574 : the result for those vargheists is exceptional: very clean painting, great colors and nice smooth transitions between them on the wings. They are maybe too "perfect" to be mad corpse eaters.

@robtion : really beautiful and original. I'm amazed by the quantity and quality of unusual models you guys come up with... it the winner accepts suggestions, a great theme could be "Unholy conversions".

Tnx for the appreciations and the suggestion. Yeah, those cracks are not pleasant: looking the model in reality and seeing it on the tabletop, those went almost unnoticed... but a zoomed photo shows them too much clearly!

@Unas the slayer Nothing shows up flaws like a photograph! I try to avoid posting close ups of all but my best work. I only put up one picture of the dragon because it looks worse in every other photo I took :innocent:

I always love the creativity that we see on this forum, to the extent where I feel bad about posting an unconverted model. But in this case I decided to vote for @Farmer7574 's Vargheists, because as pointed out the only possible flaw is that they are flawless! :tongue:

@robtion Thanks, there was a bunch of stuff which was too nice to not use, so that guy popped outta the "melting" progress xD Really, you don't ride the rider model? I always wanted that guy, in my eyes he is one of those "Ultra GW guys", you know, the ones which you can always tell are gw models :D but of course it's not everyones favour xD

I have added my vote to Shadespyre's decrepit looking forest dragon because that is my bag baby, yeah (sorry rewatched Austin Powers recently).

Could really have voted for any of the entries as they all have their own charm.

@Farmer7574 That painting :| Smooth :thumbsup:
