Everchosen - I'm a Winner!


Just a quick update post to say that my Battle Sister made it through, and that I came first in my local competition! Next up, I'll be going on to represent the store in the online vote.

Just for fun, I also entered the open category, and snagged 2nd place with my 40k Skaven Dragoon conversion. All in all it was good fun, and I think I'll probably enjoy going into the online vote too. I'm not expecting much as I'm sure the serious golden demon guys are going to be out in force, but It's just nice to get a little bit of recognition, and it is a very big global stage, so it should be interesting.

I had a bit of a look around the internet, and I think quite a few people entered Sister Amalia into Everchosen, so I'm sure I'll be up against some very directly comparable models in the next round! (I've seen a few that made it through), so at least I can see how I do compared to them!

Winning was quite fun too, as I was presented with a mysterious golden envelope. Unfortunately, it just continued instructions on how to enter the second stage of the competition, and wasn't stuffed full of gift vouchers!

  1. Ah brilliant stuff mate! That Skaven Doomcrawler should do well I reckon.

    1. Thanks. It was the Dragoon that I put in the Open Category: http://tabletopapocalypse.blogspot.com/2018/10/dreadtober-40k-skaven-dragoon-complete.html

      I would have entered the Doomcrawler, but it took first place in the last open competition they had!

  4. I love the work you did to convert that model and may use it for inspiration. Good job.

    1. Thanks Rory. I used her original arm and filled the shoulder with a little greenstuff, so it's not that hard to do. O did have to swap out her entire hand which meant a bit of trimming and fitting, but it's not a complex conversion. I'm always wary of doing too much in a competition where the model will be under a lot of scrutiny!
