Brawler Bash VI Army Parade

As promised, here are a few of my favorite armies at the Bash.  There were several other nice ones around, but they weren't set up when I went around (I meant to go back through but my phone died).  The level of painting was very high this year.  Four that I missed that I would have liked to have gotten shots of were Chris's Book-themed Empire (he had a wizard riding a flying book -- very cool), Paul's awesome terrorgheist climbing over a building and excellent graveyard display board, Ian's cthulhu-themed Lizardmen (and his very creepy movement trays), and the best overall winner's ogres.  I'll try to catch those at Southern Assault. If I have a shot of your army, and you'd prefer it not be posted, let me know, and I'll take it down.  Otherwise, enjoy the armies!

First up, the winner for Best Painted, The Great Bear Tribe of our friend over at Casualties of a Paintbrush.  The freehand on this was incredible.  Check out the bear banner up front.

 Next, a high elf army.  The technical skill on this army is top-notch.  The chimera won the award for best single miniature.

 Here is PowerPosey's from the Accursed Crozius.  I love the blue; it's very striking on the tabletop, and the soulgrinder is awesome!

 Once Bitten's Empire army (I'm sure you've seen his stuff, but he has some YouTube battle reports from the Bash).  This display board is the most detailed I have seen.  There are all kinds of little bits and bobs to add a touch of realism.  I hope you can see the detail on his hurricanium as well.

 Here is the Chaos Dwarf army that beat me so badly in round 2.  It went on to win third best painted.  I think this picture speaks for itself.

 Another awesome Slannesh Daemon army by Mr. Brohammer.  There are some very nice conversion pieces here as you can see.

 I don't know whose army this was, but I really liked the circus theme.

 I thought this dark elf army was very strong.  I understand that the whole thing was done using an airbrush  It turned out beautifully.

This Ulric themed Empire army was great.  A lot of care was taken with each mini, and I noticed several neat (but subtle) conversions throughout.

Finally,  I love Lance's Scibor bear demigryphs and steam tanks.  I wish I would have thought of this first.

  1. Thanks for the kind words. I loved that winter DE army and Chad's Empire army. The quality of painting has been going up each year. I remember a few years ago when I was one of the only people with a display board (same one that is pictured), now I need to step it up quite a but as there are some great display boards out there (ie Jerry's CD and Eoin's Ogres)
