Your stuff was fantastic to look at. Your son was your best work though, "The Dude" he cracked me up in the elevator.

Next year i vote we break a finger or 2 before he attempts to paint his models, so all the rest of us have a chance.......
Oh and he cheated with his pigs......he didn't paint them......he just grew genetically altered pigs that fit the scale of the models, and glued them to bases........i guess the impressive thing with them is the fact he trained them to stay perfectly still for as long as they did.
SO here's the real question on everybody's minds-
Will she ever be played with
-or (yes this would be 2 questions)-
will she ever get the free hand?
yes, ghool . . .you suck. . . .
. . .in the Dyson, not hoover, kind of way. . .
(in response to the 'tabletop standard' comment, not my question responses)
I feel like the pics must be a huge let down. It's a fantastic paint job, no doubt, but the blending doesn't look nearly as good as some of the other stuff you have done. If you say it's your best, I believe you I just don't see it compared to what you brought last year in pictures

In the future, please think about the consequences of posting your work, so this doesn't happen again. Perhaps use less of whatever it is that you use to get your results?

The washing out colours thing won't work. Everyone will just compliment Ghool on his new monochrome style!
Mercenaries and auxiliaries are useless and dangerous; and if one holds his state based on these arms, he will stand neither firm nor safe. Machiavelli, The Prince.
Bwahahahaha.......Dual mod hammering for the win!
Interesting to to look at. We all can be critics but all in all. Painted models look good and i think it brings the game and the gamer to life. Enjoying your work and having people look on and seeing you play with painted models. Elevates the gaming experience. Congrats on the win.
So my sarcasm alert widget is clearly indicating that both Plarzoid and Faultie are taking the piss as they compliment Ghool on his awesome work.
The use of your mod voices in doing so does raise the humor factor, but does also bring out that nervous laugh that says "Are they serious? They have their mod voices on.."
We take mods seriously around here... With a little bit of power comes a little bit of responsibility and all that. A "pfffffff....amazing work can't wait to see the next" at the end would go a long way to show you can't keep a straight face while trying to bluff this one out.
Also... Ghool, if you stop posting your stuff, blur or discolour your pictures or anything of that type, I will have someone at Sentry box take crap photos and post them here until your are forced to take decent ones. Inspiring work is just that - inspiring. Never stop.
beautiful beautiful work ghool. Congratulations on... I think more or less sweeping L&L. If I ever head over to the US I will have to pick your brain (and meg's and matt's). I really like the use of green. I seldom see good minis with green on them. Also like the shading on the cape and the colours of the face. eEiryss is a hard model to paint well, and you did a wonderful job.
I saw this model at L&L and talked with Ghool about it - I can say that the pics of his Eyriss model do NOT do the model justice.
There were a lot of good entries but this particular model was in competition with a couple of others for 1st place. I'm not surprised that this model ended up winning though.
I did have the good fortune of being able to talk to Ghool while we were looking over all of the model entries. Hopefully, i'll be able to attend L&L next year!
If Ghool has to post pics using insragram I'm going to boycott the forums.

Your post however is confrontational, aggressive and rude. Posts like that are pointless, worthless, and arrogant.
Hey now, no need to get hostile.
I myself have seen paint jobs by EtherealPaints, and they're quite nice.
Let's keep the thread civil. It's just another painted miniature that happened to win an award. I took the critique as just that, and which is why I posted some more pictures. What I think I needed to do was zoom out a bit, and maybe not make them so huge; any slight flaws will show extremely well at the size I posted them at.
Everyone's opinion is valid, so let's just all give each other a group hug...okay?
Triple mod-hammer FTW!
Indeed. I think anyone who has criticised has done so fairly and all given credit to the wonderful miniatures you produce. I consider your work to be benchmark stuff as far as PP stuff goes. I say as far as PP because I've never seen your work applied to non PP miniatures.
Edit - Is that the same picture from the previous page?

It... really does. Some of the point highlights (on the gems for example) look far better when seen at actual size. The metals look better too.
Click his name, click "Threads started by" and look at his stuff. It's all really well painted. When I click your name, all I see is 5 started threads, none in the M&P forum.
Pot, meet kettle
Ghool - The far out pics are better. She's awesome. I still don;t like the cloak. Not sure what it is but I would not guess the Master Blender would have done that. Rest is perfect
(Note: I suck at painting so please don't flame me because I gave an honest opinon)

It's a good paint job, but it's not that great a model imo.
