Oh and also, Happy Birthday to Warhound for the weekend. A Golden Demon is not a bad birthday present, eh?

GOOD morning chaps!

Right, to be honest, I am rubbish at taking photo's, so have compiled a few here so that people can the full effect...

Not a lot more to be said really- It was a great weekend all be told and it was so nice to meet up with old international friends, see and hear new stuff about our blue friends and yes, take my 5th gold!

Anyway, onto the shots:
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/home.jsp - yup he's on the front page;-P

Check out the Tau ambassador also in the large scale category!- VERY nice cloth and lettering in the flesh!

Thanks again to all for their support, ideas and input. Remember- this forum has some pure genius on it- make the most of it!

EDIT: oH, and for the record, I did beat Tael (his piece was 2004) My, Tau Ambassador was 2002, and first winner was 1994! Sorry Tael, and also for the fact that GD knocked it out of you- that is a real shame! :sad:

You know, someone must really love the Tau at GW. A bunch of articles recently and now the first image you see for the GD is a Crisis Suit!

It looks beautiful Warhound and you should be proud.

Ahh, a full length shot. Very nice! I did see the Ambassador you mentioned, though the model itself is not my cup of tea. Quality paintwork all the same.

As for my experience of GD, it was more the Australian circuit that was the killjoy. Nice to read about the comradeship of the European set though. Good tally over the years too!

Didn't realise it was your birthday man! felices cumpleaños amigo! Now that's how you do GD haha :D

The only thing that I am slightly peeved about is that you are not going to be about to get some serious modelling done yourself!

When do you get back?

We want Tael, We want Tael, We want Tael;-)

Good question Warhound.. good question. It's more a 'Gone Walkabout' trip. I have a pencilled itinerary, but nothing is set in stone. Though I am going to end up in Southern France next year for quite awhile, most likely live there depending on the French government's beneficence.

As for modelling? More around the same time, hopefully be inspired and refreshed by then too! Particularly with a resurgence of Tau goodies lately as you have reported back about.

Possibly drop by and have a beer when I'm visiting the UK?

Congrats mate!
I am really happy that you won with your awesome XV8, and also made on the frontpage :D

Though I wonder why you thank me for feedback, did I say anything of use?

Anyways congrats again, and like many others I really look forward to next year ;)

Any help?

Congratulations, Warhound! That Crisis suit is everything I imagined a 'true-scale' XV8 to be. :D

Congrats Warhound, exceptional work! I am really happy to see that your work is getting recognized outside of this little website, you are a superb modeler and painter and your true-scale suit has set the bar pretty high.

Cheers!

They've replaced it now with Phil Kelly's mutton chops, GD is now the second article for community and events, it was the same image on the front page merely cropt.
