Oh the weediness. hahaha :lol no worries ladz. Life abides. I count myself among. I'd hopes of making a piece just for something to do but my got orders so its hide all the stuff that doesn't really have a place, wipe down the walls & pretend no one lives here in hope that someone might want to buy it.

 

I had what I think is a pretty sweet idea. "Sherlork Holmes & Dr. Grotson vs the Grox of the Baskervilles." I wasn't gunna go too overboard w/ the sculpt, just that signature Holmes hat & then a cane for Grotson. It was a toss up between the squig or the grox but I wanted something imposing so the grox won. Its all stuff I have laying around so it wouldn't have taken much.

 

Best of luck to those still in the hunt : :choppa  I'm excited to see what you all have come up with.

We've had an outbreak of Nurgles Rot among the runts of the Garslag household, putting construction behind schedule. A real good weekend could put me back on track,but i lack confidence. Oh well, we'll see what happens.

Well I was rushing to finish my entry, after skipping some details to speed it all up I hit it with some​ spray paint then remembered we needed a wip picture before paint. So I'm just putting it on pause. I had made the CAT 3000 Power loader.I'll likely paint it in the next week's and post it into the wip section.

Yeah so, Lord Voldemork is not gonna get finished - or rather, he will get finished, but not in a timely fashion. I have a collection of pitiful excuses which i will not bore you with.

Congrats to everyone that got their sh!t together in time :) and thanks to Z. for running this thing.

Because I can't count to ten with out taking off my socks and shoes I have sent away to NASA to calculate the results of this contest.

"Seriously bro."- Me

 

When it came down to it,  I had  to look for really nitpicky things to find wrong. I guess that's the point in a contest but its not something I wanted to do because both entries were really unique, well done and perfectly executed.

 

To that end I have contacted both finishing participants to inform them that they will be splitting a set of steak knives. :lol

 

No, instead one $25 prize they will each be getting a $20 prize.

 

When I have a longer moment I will post my thoughts in each entrants post.

 

Thanks to every one who posted interest in this contest even if you did not meet the deadline. I'd still be interested to see some of the WIP results that any of you were able to come up with.

Thank you Zagursnik for organizing this cool contest.

 

As the turn-out was a bit on the smallish side, I pledge to make two more Movie-orks by the end of summer (=before new year). Planning  and collecting bitz starts tentatively for Hellboy and Judge Dredd - on a bike.

 

Should Hellbork's skin be red or green - or both?

 Ooooo thats tough. I'd say, if were having to be judging it, you loose point on "likeness" but pick some bonus point up for staying "orky"

I'd say that a fairly distinctive thing about Hellboy is the red skin - I suspect that if it was done with green skin it wouldn't look that different to non-Hellbork orks :?
