|My cultists came in third in the unit category but I couldn't be happier|
Meanwhile, it was as if my Word Bearers Chaos Cultists were dumbfounded that they had survived charging a fusillade of bolter fire to reach enemy lines and the surprised/shocked/stupid expression they had on their faces pretty much summed up how I must have looked while getting up to accept my third placing for the unit category. In fact, when pictures were being taken I was stuck between smiling and being shocked so I must have looked like a right idiot with a silly grimace on my face.
|Looks like the Golden Daemon but only cooler in my opinion|
The trophy was a cool looking sculpture done up by a local Malaysian artist, Jarold Ng. Thanks are also in order for the Legio members who had to fund the commission of this nice piece and for organising the event where miniatures painters like myself can be a part of.
|Word Bearers Chaos Cultists that went to Golden Kris 2013|
My two other Word Bearers pieces i.e. Dark Apostle and Helbrute didn't stand a chance in the event and rightly so. I managed to snap a few pictures of the event with my LG camera phone - it started working again after getting dropped to the floor but for some reason only saved photos to my SIM card which meant I could take only a few photos. My apologies for the less than stellar picture quality but I will post the link to the official photo gallery once they have it up on their site.
