HOBBY CHALLENGE: Dark Eldar Venom Edition

2 Minute Read
Nov 8 2010

You heard that right, with the arrival of the Dark Eldar, its time for a good old fashioned BoLS Hobby Challenge.  You have the skills, and you want the prize… then lets see your best Venom!


You heard me right, its time for another great BoLS hobby challenge and this time we are celebrating the Dark Eldar release along with Challenge sponsor Spikey Bits. This time the challenge is to make the best converted and painted Dark Eldar Venom (see p.43 of the codex) you can. Did I mention there is prize support? Its time for you denizens of the Dark City to strut your stuff! 

So lets get right down to it folks. Your challenge is to submit to the BoLS 2-4 high-quality pictures of the following:

-A single fully painted and converted Dark Eldar Venom specifically made for this competition (please don’t submit ancient Harlequin Venom models you have already painted).
-It may be converted and painted as you see fit, in the style best fitting your chosen Kabal.
-The miniature should be based on appropriate sized and shaped base. (no giant dioramas please)
-Weathering, fine detail work, elaborate base detailings, cavorting passengers, and the like are all acceptable to dress up your entry.
-Shoot 2-4 pictures against a well-lit white background. Trust me, I can’t tell you how many cool entries have been disqualified because they were shot up against a dark, busy background, so please take the time to at least set up a curved piece of paper and a good light to shoot them against.
-One or two sentences of fluff describing the model, and its construction methods.

-Upload the finished entries to the BoLS Gallery (300kb maximum per picture) and Email us a link to them with the subject line “VENOM CHALLENGE” and the background fluff to the BoLS emailbox.

We will select the top entries and put up a poll once the deadline has passed. The winner gets a copy of the Dark Eldar Codex and a Ravager from Spiky Bits, mailed straight to your home, not to mention big-time bragging rights! Tell your friends to come get in on the action.
~The Deadline is November 29th. Ladies and gentlemen, start your paintbrushes! This is your chance to really show off to your fellow BoLS readers, so lets see what you all can do. I can’t wait to see what the community can come up with. GO!!!
