Dear friends, I could finally get some decent pictures of my entry in the Italian GD this year.
I am proud to say it got the GOld Demon in the 40K Monster category, as you may know.

Thanks for any comments you want to leave about it, any suggestion and criticism is welcome, and it makes me improve

Just to give you the background of the conversion, the body belongs to Be'Lakor, the head is from the inquisitor mini Demian, the power claw from an ork, the fist from SM range, while the "panties" are entirely sculpted.
THe back foresaw the lack of the wings, which have been replaced by the insertion for energy dispenser cables, and the original tail was cut at half, cover by greenstaff to simulate a mechanical tail, to which hooks were added through cables
THe base is entirely done from scratch except the power pillar that is a Tank cannon.

Hi.

Congrats! It's a very nice conversion. Got to say, the self modelled parts are even better than the original GW ones. The paintjob fits the miniature very well. The dark TM and this unhealthy skintone are awesome.

Deserved Demon!

Absolutely breathtaking,

the skin is just perfect. The veins subtly represent the perfect subsurface scattering of the blood vessels. The metal looks pure, real and lovely weathered. One of the best miniatures I have seen for months (in my opinion).

Best regards,

Grumbler

An awesome pice oft art, godly skin and superb metal. The paintjob and the conversion definitly deserve gold... but didn't you get any problems with the spirit of warhammer 40k? I couldn't tell what kind of background your miniature refers to, I'd even say that you got inspired by Rackham Models (-> http://www.rackham-store.com/boutique/images_produits/FRSCBO05_3.jpg ).
This souldn't be offinsive, I just wonder if you got in trouble with that.

@Yuno: Offensive???? I am happy that you expressed yourself, I am always very interested in such comments, this is what I am expecting.
Do you know what, you are the second person saying so, I am intrigued by this discussion. When I conceived the piece, getting inspired by other "similar" conversions, I thought it was absolutely matching the 40K spirit...I think you might be right in what you posted as a potential inspiration model, aberration is one of my favourite Rackham models. On the other hand, the constructs have a specific place in the backgroud of 40K world, especially together with Imperial guard and witch hunters / Demon hunters. At the GD I didn't have any objections related to the badckground, and the Gold, I believe, is also a proof of that (in the sense that they didn't find anything wrong with that in the mini).
But let me know more about this. What would you have changed to be more meeting the 40K spitirt, or what do you find "strange" or "out of place" in respect to the BG? Thanks for such comments.

Thanks for your nice words mates, I really appreaciated. I am admit I am particularly proud of the skin tone, as I tried to give that sense or tormented skin, and those colors that the skin has during the effort. Purple shades and blue parts, mixed with a general dull red for the shadows made it work...

Please continue to comment on what you find working and what not, I can only improve if I am criticized, thanks

Hi Angelus, thanks for moving the post in the appropriate section, as I don't speak gernam and as expected I failed in getting the right one. And thanks for your appreciation
I am happy you gave me the chance to improve our knowledge.
I am one of the Moderator of the Legio Pictorum Forum, the board of the Italian Painters, and my opinion is that we should to try to make our hobby more and more international.
Despite the fact that Stephan brought the Slayer outside Italy, it was such a honour to shake his hand and congratulate him, and also great time with him and Christian as representative of the german community.
I'll do my best next year to attend the German GD, and I am sure I'll have the same enjoyable time with all of you
I'll be happy to share thoughts and experiences with all of you in sight of a great painting collaboration. And you all are more than welcome in joining our forum, it will be great
ciao

Hi Mario,

unfortunately I do not know the Italian board. Do you have a link section? Probably we can make a link exchange. We have here a link section and I would like to link your board. I just need a link to a banner and the link to the page.

Now you are the second Italian painter I know. The other one is rusto. Hope to see you on the German Games Day.

Greetings

I must admit that I don't know much about the 40k background, I'd rather say that I'm a total noob in this section ^^". But I do know quite a lot about Rackham (and it's background), so all I did was comparing your model and the aberration. Of course I can image that such creatures also exist in the 40k universe, I just didn't know it until now ^^". It's also well known that Rackham and Games Workshop "share" some background, for me the origion of such a model is rather Rackham than GW.

What makes this model "GW'ish" are his weapons, they are so typically for GW models that noone could say they weren't. Especially the orc claw puts the mini for me back to the 40k universe (the freehand does a great job here). On the other hand his spine and the "cables" (and their input holes) make this model more Rackham like.

Hey Docitalicus,

I myself also like to inspire myself by looking at different material - and Rackham just has some really cool stuff (so why not use it)... I also look in complete other areas such as historical dioramas and find inspiration there. I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

As far as your miniature goes: Awesome! The CoC and the execution are just perfect. I reallly like this piece and I congratulate you on receiving gold. Well earned!
