nb. Well that's the second time that blogger has failed to post when I've "scheduled" - anybody got any tips or does it just not work??
Well I enjoyed posting up the pics in my previous "for others and by others" post. I especially like getting nice pics of the minis I painted in "staged" or game situations. First up I have some pics of the dark angels captain model I painted for Mik @ Mik's Minis as the prize from the second GWpertinent contest.

Next up I have a pic from Mike over at Constantly Risking Obscurity - a fellow I have been following for quite some time. Ever since his submission to a painting contest called "Take Cover" with this incredible entry. I love the burnt piece of wall and battle damage. In this instance I was fortunate enough to NOT win a contest he held on his blog to receive a painted model - and by his great generosity received an offer to paint a mini for me regardless of the contest. How awesome is THAT?

Finally - Mik recently showed me some love for the dark angels captain model, and he took some nice close up pics. I think they are nicer than the pics I originally took (and he looks better based) so I thought I would post them up too. The pics definitely help me to think of what I could improve.
