Duel for Golden Daemon 2017

Hello all!

I've finally photographed the duel I made for this years Golden Daemon. There were a lot of amazing entries in the competition, and it was great to see all of them in the flesh. I got a finalist pin for this entry!

The base was made of a large plastic pipe cut into the right shape. The edges of the pipe were made with rusted metal plates. They where bent into place and smoothed into the surface with greenstuff. To mach the rusted texture on the plastic surface I used superglue and baking powder. Some places I also used GW crackle paint and Typhus Corrosion. I gave the outside of the pipe an earthy texture using white glue, sand, earth and roots. 

The Genestealer isn't converted at all. It's a model from Space Hulk. The Genestealer bursting through the floor os one of my favourite miniatures. I used greenstuff, superglue, cracklepaint and typhus corrosion to smooth it into the pipe. 

The human explorer is a mix of Solar Auxillia and Genestealer Cult bits, with a Chaos Renegade Militia backpack. I regret using a helmeted head on this one. He would look more surprised and scared if I you could see his facial expressions. 

The rust was painted by stippling AK interactive rust effects and rust coloured FW weathering powders over a dark brown undercoat. 


  1. I'm not sure what to say except that it looks fantastic! I see what you mean about the helmet but I think the pose says a lot, especially given that he doesn't look heavily armoured. I like the use of colour as well. The bright orange works really nicely.

    1. Cheers!
      Yes, I think the bright orange rust and the deep bluegreen on the genestealer complement each other really well.

  2. The picture taken from above shows off the composition at it's best in my opinion. Both in poses as in colours.
    A fabulous piece.

  3. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
