Kyle's Sword, and LGS
This beautiful model of Meriadoc Brandybuck (or Merry to his friends) was painted up by a friend of mine, Kyle Morgan. He gave it to me last year as a "thank you" for picking up some Games Day tickets for him before the show (apparently it wasn't possible to purchase them online from Australia).
I first met Kyle at Games Day Chicago 2009, where his Large Model beat mine for Gold, as did his Diorama, even after I loaned him some glue and paints to repair his models after a long flight from Sydney. I first mentioned Kyle on my blog back in this post here.
When Kyle gave me this piece I was stunned, so much time had obviously gone into the model and basing, and no one had ever given me such a cool "thank you" gift before. At the time I was rushing off for a week in North Carolina, and then when I got back I was never sure how to best work it in to a post.
So, why do mention it now? Only because I now own a miniature painted by a bona fide Golden Demon Slayer Sword winner. Congratulations to Kyle for winning the Sword at the Golden Demons in Australia this past Saturday.
I am yet to find a pic of his Sword-winning entry, but here's a link to his "close to finished" WIPs for his Bronze and Silver winning entries. I'll update this post as soon as he posts pics of the winner.
Oh, and I picked up some "liquid green stuff" the other day. Should be interesting to muck around with.
