I'm the US, in New Hampshire.  I live about an hour's drive from Boston Massachusetts, which has an international airport.

I had considered going to the Warmaster Warmer, but the airfare and lodging costs are not in the budget right now.  My company had layoffs yesterday, and I still have a 5% paycut.  I'm still employed, which is a good thing.

I still want to attend a Warmaster gathering of some sort.  I am not sure if there are any events happening in North America.  If the time was right and the money was OK, I would be able to travel to the UK or further into Europe.

Where are you, Azrael?

There seems to be a lot of Warmaster in Texas IIRC. You should probably join the Yahoo-Group as that seems to be the medium by which much of the US crowd disseminate event info, etc...

I feel your pain mate.
I am in Sheffield, UK.
If it wasn't 45 minutes to Nottingham, I would be struggling to go (may still be with the weather, we have had snow in Winter, how freaky is that  ;D).

I wanted to go to the euro gt this year but my budget doesn't stretch to that (too may armies to buy for stupid painting contests  ::) :P)

If you are ever over here drop me a mail and you can come up for a game :)
I'll even lend you an army to save an your baggage costs  ;)

Lex, I wish I could come to this year's Euro GT.  It would be nice to meet you folks face to face.

Azrael, if I get the the UK I will certainly let you know.  It would be great to get together for a game.  And likewise, let me know if you get out this way, and we'll set up a game.

Stomm, thanks for the reminder.  I'm a member there also, but I haven't checked that site recently due to the lack of activity.  I just assumed everyone moved over to this site.

I will contact Pendraken over the weekend to see if I can get some photos of the Dungeon Monsters.  And the Warstore to see if they are carrying the ones I'm interested in.

Thanks all!  I appreciate the comments and suggestions!

What part of NH, BlackEd?  I have cousins, near Concord, and try to make it up there a couple times a year.

I think I recall seeing that TheWarstore was building stock on its 10mm Pendrakens -- I've had good luck with Pendraken Sci-Fi Aliens.

I'm a few minutes from Manchester NH.  If that's not too far out of your way, Haraninn & Carrington, then PM me with some contact info.  We'll set something up!

I did not finish painting everything.  I did not finish the bases either.  The bases are just painted.  Nevertheless, here is what I have.

First up, the Daemon Overlord and the two Daemon Lords:


Next up, The Mi-Go, daemon flyers:


Now the Daemon beasts:


Now the last, the Greater Daemon.  He is not painted, but the base is painted.  Sort of a mini -diorama.

The base itself:


Army Shot:


Daemon Overlord:


Daemon Lord, The Watcher in the Sky:


Daemon Lord, The Piper of Blasphemous Melodies:

I was somewhat dubitious about your project, but now, seeing the result I can tell you I'm pretty impressed!
Very original and very nice convertion/paint-job. Keep-up the good job :)

Great looking army, with a unique style.

I specially like the fleeing imperial soldier on the diorama base. What model did you use for him?
Warmaster:
- Bretonia
- Dwarves
- Highelf WIP

Epic:
-Imperial Guard
-Necrons
-Space Marines WIP

As a Daemon player in WH, I am stunned.  :o
For myself, I can not even imagine to get such excellent results like yours, in the 28mm scale.
Thank you for the very good pictures.

Thanks everybody!  I appreciate the comments!

Guthwine, the fleeing Empire soldier started as a handgunner.  He's in one of the first photos of the greater daemon.  I clipped the handgun off of him, and clipped the arms off.  I clipped his foot off the base, and bent the body into a more forward position.  I sawed the hat off his head, and peeled it back to make it look as though the hat was flying off his head.  I had to use greenstuff to put the top of his head back on, and give him arms in approximately the right position for running.  I had some spare Empire weapons, and used one to make it look as though he cast the weapon aside.

The dead folks on the back of the base started as skeleton archers.  I used som greenstuff for shredded clothing.  I added another head using greenstuff (3 heads, two bodies), and added some Empire weapons.

To show that the daemon leaves death in its wake, the back of the base is a mix of Scorched brown and black, then scorched brown, then bestial brown, then Goblin green (grass).  The poor runner is almost off the edge of the grass that's still alive...
