I took some photos of 40k Models and armies at this years cancon that I thought I'd post for those westgamers who missed the event. Have a browse, some were really impressive.
Knights of the Imperium crushing Tau
An impressive scratch-built titan dominating a table in the 40K Friendly tournament.
(BTW the photo is from this year - it's the t-shirt that's living in the past)
Minions of the Great Devourer, feasting on biomass.
A crisp white and mustard Tau force
A chaotic defiler rushing towards the Tau lines, ready to rip and shred them to pieces.
A Necron Ghost Arc hosing chaos daemons with firepower.
Plague Drones of Nurgle, overseers of Nurgle’s realm riding into realspace mounted upon Rot Flies. These colossal daemonic insect blended foul rotten colours with Tinkerbell Winter Wonderland Wings to create an appearance is so repugnant it scars the mind.
An eye-catching example of the Daemons' natural enemy. "If you want to get to the Dreadknight, you'll have to go through us."
Great legions of Grots having a fantastic time, clogging boards and making dakka-dakka sounds.
The other approach to building an ork list. It can work, but NMB -Needs More Boyz.
My choice for Best on Display:
Shane Sof's Eldar
I am really happy with my own Eldar. They're Ulthwe with contrasting ice world bases, and definitely one of the most visually appealing of my armies. Shane's made me want to go home and repaint them all, which is probably the highest praise any of us can give
(excuse the fact these are just iphone photos; the models are even better in real life)
Just one example of the painstaking freehand.
