It has now been confirmed that the guy that entered the great Chaos Lord that I linked to in my last post, the guy that collected the Gold trophy, was not, in fact, the guy who painted the freakin' model!
To make matters worse, this guy walked away from Games Day with THREE Gold trophies, for models not painted by him!
To make matter even worse, the painter must have been in on the scam as his CoolMiniorNot pictures were updated immediately with their trophy status!
So, Marc Schmelze (the collector who entered the pieces as his own work in Chicago) and Karol Rudyk (the original painter), I wish you nothing but unhappiness in your future toy soldier endeavors. You sully the hobby. While the painting may be spectacular, the spirit is so false it makes my skin crawl!
Congratulations, however, to those folks who will now take their rightful place among the trophy winners!
Edit: perhaps I was overly harsh on Karol. I'm not sure.
